This is my first post here after reading a while but not finding a solution.
can anyone explain the steps needed to get the following setup up and running:
- Logitech Group + SmartDock with Surface Pro 5 running Win10 Pro
- Office365 Teams Room Account has been set up by office365 admins
do i really need Win10 Enterprise? And how do I get it?
How to install the Software Client?
Do I need to have credentials for a Office365 Admin Account?

You should be able to buy the Smart dock with a predeployed SRS. If you already have a SmartDock with a Surface without SRS installed you can create a USB stick boot media and deploy Windows with SRS software. Follow the guide here or contact a partner that can help you.
Yes, you need Win10 Enterprise. You download it from Microsoft Volume License Portal or buy via your license partner.
Software Client, I guess you refer to Skype Room System software (now renamed to Microsoft Teams Rooms) and that is included in the deployment kit (URL above).
You need Office365 Admin Account to create an account for your device.

@Samuel_Orsenne I just read your old posting regarding Logitech Docking with Surface for Teams Room.
Were you able to build with it? I'm new on this MTR or SRS. Why do you use Surface while you already have Logitech Smart Docking as Teams Room console?

@gobybike , any resolution here? I am awaiting a call back from MSFT now with hopefully a resolution that will get me Small Business access. I already have an E3 license but apparently getting this special version of enterprise is difficult or maybe even impossible without a volume licensing agreement.

@Jay Vincent what I ended up doing was added a Windows 10 Enterprise E3 license to our M365 tenant which allowed me to load the needed Enterprise version of Windows onto our old surface to get this whole thing to work. Took forever to figure that one out, but I was able to reload with the correct license Window 10, then configured the various Rooms set up and Teams worked on the Surface in the SmartDock as it should.

@Jay Vincent I'm assuming you did all the steps here: Microsoft Teams virtual meeting rooms - Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs and all subsequent steps. My only hold up was the Enterprise license. Once I was able to get that license, I could install on the device then follow the outlined steps.
I could chat, but it was 9 months ago when I tackled this whole thing so I'd need to walk back through all the steps. Not sure I can be much help.

@gobybike no worries. I think we figured it out. Thank you for reaching back out.
