I have a customer who recently wanted to create a mixed license farm, and here are the steps I sent him. In this scenario they had an enterprise licensed farm and wanted to enforce Standard licensing on a specific group of users.
Since they had multiple domains they are going to need to take the following steps to be able to enforce licensing across all domain users.
For more information about groups in Active Directory and how you can use them, please read this
Next we need to enforce User licensing by running the following command on any SharePoint server and from the SharePoint Management Shell
Then you need to create an SPUserLicenseMapping object and add it to the enforcemen
$LicenseMapping = New-SPUserLicenseMapping -SecurityGroup “Farm SharePoint Standard Cal” -License Standard
Add-SPUserLicenseMapping -Mapping $LicenseMapping
NOTE: To find license types that you can enforce run the command Get-SPUserLicense
You can manage the License enforcement and Mappings via these commands
Hope this helps you
