Hi Guys,

Im hopeing you can help me out with this little issue, if we are going to use SharePoint 2010 Enterprise so that we can unlock feature like Info Path forms would the Windows Server 2008 OS need to be Enterprise edition??

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

yes, for front end web servers and application servers in a farm and for single servers with database. No for database servers in a farm.

See here for the specs, straight from the horse's mouth:

Hi,

Thanks for the response, i cant figure out from the page if we require it or not. I just require a straightforward answer of if wanting to use Enterprise feature of SharePoint 2010 do we require Enterprise version of Windows Server 2008.

The answer is NO.  The OS version (std vs ent) doesnt matter one bit.

I am at a client right now who is using Windows Server 2008 Std on all machines, yet is running SharePoint Server 2010 Ent.  We are using InfoPath services as well.

The answer is no you can run standard r2 with sharepoint ent.   The main difference besides a few other things between server 2008 standard and enterprise is the number of virtual machines you can have along with physical.  Standard is 1p+1v , enterprise is 1p + 4v
here is a quick ref guide between the 2
