Adding or Removing SQL Server Features (64-bit)

SQL Server 2000

  This topic applies only to SQL Server 2000 (64-bit).

You can add or remove individual features in an instance of Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 (64-bit). To add or remove a feature, run Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel and choose to change an instance of SQL Server. This starts the Installation Wizard and lets you choose whether to change the installed features or completely remove all features. After you choose to change the installed features, the wizard displays the Feature Selection page described in Specifying SQL Server Features (64-bit). The remaining steps in the wizard depend on which features you choose to install or remove.

Note  For a failover cluster installation, you cannot use Add or Remove Programs to add or remove features in an instance. You must use the Setup.exe graphical interface or the command line.

You can also add or remove features by running the SQL Server 2000 Setup program from the desktop or from Windows Explorer. When Setup starts, you can choose to work with an existing instance rather than installing a new instance. This displays the Feature Selection page and additional pages to complete the task. In this setup mode, you cannot change the location of a previously installed feature, nor can you specify the location for a new feature.

How to add or remove features in an instance of SQL Server 2000

SQL Setup

You can also add or remove features on the setup command line for SQL Server 2000 (64-bit). The command line is useful for a silent operation or to maintain SQL Server using another application, although the preferred methods to add or remove features are through Add or Remove Programs or Setup run from the desktop. On the setup command line, use the ADDLOCAL property to specify features to add to an instance of SQL Server 2000. Use the REMOVE property to specify features to remove. For more information, see SQL Server 2000 (64-bit) Setup Command.
