Hello All,

I am running Sharepoint 2010 Fondation on a Hyper V Server. SQL 2008 is also running on the same Hyper V server. We are having no problems. We are hosting about 100 gigs of documents on this sharepoint server.

Recently, upper management has realized there are many more options available on SharePoint 2010 Enterprise and now they want those options.

Can I upgrade from Sharepoint 2010 Foundation to Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise without any huge projected hassles ?

If this can be done, can someone explain the steps that I would take in order to make this happen ?

Thanks !!! :- )

Hi,
in general you have two options:
- Upgrade your existing farm to SharePoint Server
- Create a new farm with SharePoint Server and attach the content databases

For the latter one you would have to have additional machines (physical or virtual) as you have to create a complete new (independent) farm.

For the first one, I would check the current patch level, then install SharePoint server, then install the related patch level for server and then run the product configuration wizard.

Detailed steps can be found here on Microsoft technet:
