How to: Uninstall an Instance of Analysis Services

Use the following steps to uninstall an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS).

This topic and the other Analysis Services installation how-to topics in this section focus only on installation options that are specific to Analysis Services. However, these topics provide links to other topics for more information about installation of SQL Server.

  1. On the Microsoft Windows desktop click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add or Remove Programs.

  2. Under Currently installed programs, select Microsoft SQL Server 2005, and then click Change. This will start the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Maintenance Wizard.

If you click Remove instead of Change, you will not be able to uninstall an instance of Analysis Services without also uninstalling the SQL Server Database Engine and Reporting Services installed under the same instance name.

  1. On the Component Selection page, under SQL Server 2005 instances, select the instance that includes the instance of Analysis Services that you want to remove.
  2. On the Feature Maintenance page, select Analysis Services. The Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Maintenance Wizard then launches the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Installation Wizard.
  3. On the Change or Remove Instance page, click Remove Microsoft SQL Server.
  4. Click Next, and then follow the instructions on subsequent wizard pages.
