I'm setting up a new SharePoint 2013 site, and I'm currently using an internal license from our Microsoft partnership on a dev server. I need to get a full license to use for a public facing external production server, but a question has been raised about some of the features I'm using, that we may not be licensed to use.

How can I find out if my dev server is using 2013 Server Standard or Server Enterprise?

I checked my site collection features and searching the page for "enterprise" I see that none of the 4 features are enabled. Is that all I need to do? seems too basic of a check.

In Central Admin -> Upgrade and Migration --> Convert Farm License Type you can see your Current License.

Under Enable Enterprise Features (also in Upgrade and Migration) you can see which Feature Set is enabled (Standard or Enterprise)

  • Perfect - follow up question: is there a way to 'downgrade' from Enterprise to Standard? The radio buttons are disabled on the "Enable Enterprise Features" page.
