Remove a Utility Control Point (SQL Server Utility)


This topic describes how to remove a SQL Server utility control point (UCP) from the instance of SQL Server in SQL Server 2016 by using Transact-SQL.

In This Topic

Before you use this procedure to remove the UCP from the SQL Server Utility, note the following requirements. The stored procedure will run prerequisite checks as part of the operation.

  • Before you run this procedure, all managed instances of SQL Server must be removed from the UCP. Note that the UCP is a managed instance of SQL Server. From more information, see Remove an Instance of SQL Server from the SQL Server Utility.

  • This procedure must be run on a computer that is a UCP.

  • If the instance of SQL Server where the UCP was removed has a non-Utility data collection set, the UMDW database (sysutility_mdw) will not be dropped by the procedure. If this is the case, the UMDW database (sysutility_mdw) must be dropped manually before the UCP can be created again.

This procedure must be run by a user with sysadmin permissions; the same permissions required to create a UCP.
