I'm trying to assign licenses to Office 365.

If assigning a license with ALL services included, it works.

If assigning a license with for example SHAREPOINTENTERPRISE excluded, sometimes I get an error ( because a license is already assigned ) or it assigns a license with ALL services included. It seems that the -LicenseOptions has no effect.


This is what I was running in powershell:

$MyO365Sku = New-MsolLicenseOptions -AccountSkuId "contoso:ENTERPRISEPACK" -DisabledPlans "SHAREPOINTENTERPRISE"

$msoluser | set-msoluserlicense -addlicenses "contoso:ENTERPRISEPACK" -LicenseOptions $My0365Sku


What is actually causing this ? Did someone already manage to assign granular licenses ?

Hi Olivier,

probably a bit late for you but here's an interesting topic on disabling SharePoint: Apperently you would need to disable the office web apps first.
