Downgrading MOSS from enterprise to standard--identify enterprise

  Asked By: Maryann    Date: Sep 14    Category: MOSS    Views: 4348

Is there a way to identify what web parts are being used? We are most likely
going to deactivate all enterprise features and want to determine which sites
have made use of them so far. We know which web parts to look for but we don't
know how to look.

I don't think you can downgrade from enterprise  to standard  once
enterprise features  have been activated unless you rebuild your farm.
You may also experience issues with websites that had enterprise
features and no longer have them. For example, you could have issues if
you tried stsadm backup/restore from enterprise to standard farm. It
will probably work using stsadm export/import, but you will lose alerts,
workflows and some web  part customizations.

You may want to check with Microsoft support to make sure that this can
be done and they will support it.

Downgrading from enterprise  to standard  is not possible:

How does upgrading and downgrading work between the different editions
of Office SharePoint Server 2007?

Office SharePoint Server 2007 with Standard CAL features  can be upgraded
to Office SharePoint Server 2007 with Enterprise CAL features. Office
SharePoint Server 2007 for Search Standard can be upgraded to Office
SharePoint Server 2007 for Search Enterprise Edition. Office Forms
Server 2007 cannot be upgraded to a different Office SharePoint Server
2007 edition. Downgrades between the Enterprise and Standard CAL
editions in Office SharePoint Server 2007 are technically not possible.
Downgrading between Office SharePoint Server 2007 and SharePoint Portal
Server 2003 is possible from a licensing standpoint.

You can deactivate the Enterprise features as stated in this article:
