As you may have already known there are three types of WebSphere Portal licenses: Express, Enable and Extend. Once you have installed it you may find it difficult to determine what type of installation you deal with.
I have found this topic talking about that issue: http://www.mjonik.pl/blog/2011/06/websphere-portal-enable-vs-exten/
That way works properly for V7 but not for previous versions.
Do you know some way to identify the installation we deal with?
I know that it can be guessed looking at the software installed with the websphere portal product. I would like to find another way using for example vpd.properties file (I do not know exactly what each field means).
Thank you very much in advanced.

Re: WebSphere Portal Enable vs Extend2012-05-10T18:14:33Z in response to David2012Hi David,
Not sure if there is any way to find the product type after it is installed. However, you can check the wp_profile/PortalServer/wps.prooperties file. Check the property "WPFamilyName"
- If it is server then it is Portal Server
- If it is content then it is Extend or Enable
- If it is express then it is Express
