UPGRADING MULTI SERVER FARM
I was having a nightmare upgrading a multi-server sp13 farm from Standard to Enterprise . Having inserted the Enterprise Key in the usual place in Central Administration, – it kept throwing errors every time… (below)
I spent lots of time troubleshooting this, such as, checking the error Logs, clearing the cache, to name a few.
In the end One line of PowerShell fixed it…
So if any of you try to upgrade a multi server farm from the usual way of inserting the product key & doesn’t work, below are the steps I followed,
- Insert the product key in the convert license type or Enable Enterprise Features. (let it error)
- Run the above Powershell Command.
- SharePoint should upgrade to Enterprise
- Remember to enable Enterprise features on all existing web applications and site collections.
