Feature differences between SharePoint 2007 Enterprise and Standard for a Publishing Portal

I recently had to deploy a site template that was built using SharePoint Enterprise Edition 2007 on an instance of SharePoint Standard Edition 2007.

Obviously given that some features were not available in the Standard Edition I received the ‘The template you have chosen is invalid or cannot be found’. Unlike a MOSS to WSS conversion the problem here is that the features do exist on the server but are simply not available for the standard edition.

I basically resorted to manually comparing the differences between a site template created in the Standard edition vs one created in the Enterprise edition.

Here’s the list if anyone ever needs this.

Remove these features from a template created in the Enterprise edition if you want to deploy it on a Standard edition. Obviously you need to test to ensure that your template is not actually using any of the Enterprise features. <Feature ID="065c78be-5231-477e-a972-14177cc5b3c7" /> <Feature ID="0806d127-06e6-447a-980e-2e90b03101b8" /> <Feature ID="2510d73f-7109-4ccc-8a1c-314894deeb3a" /> <Feature ID="e8734bb6-be8e-48a1-b036-5a40ff0b8a81" /> <Feature ID="00bfea71-dbd7-4f72-b8cb-da7ac0440130" />
