Enable Enterprise features

  1. In Central Administration, on the Operations tab, under Upgrade and Migration, click Enable Enterprise Features.

  3. In the Enter Product Key box, type the Enterprise Client license key.

    Important: You cannot return to using the Standard feature set after you have enabled the Enterprise feature set. If you want to return to using only the Standard features, you must turn off all of the Enterprise features on all sites. Alternatively, you can uninstall Office SharePoint Server 2007, reinstall it by using the Standard license type and create a new server farm, and then attach the content databases to the new farm.
