Problems removing server components from multiple instances
What happens is I saw only one entry in Add/Remove Programs for Server Components. This had the name of one of my 2 instances - so far so good. When I Removed that item from Add/Remove Programs, the SQLBackup Client then sees the corresponding instance as having no SQLBackup Server Components installed. Good.
BUT... The other SQL Server 2000 instance still shows up in SQLBackup Client as having an expired demo of SQLBackup Server Components present. And there is no Add/Remove Programs item that has the other instance name. All that is there is an Add/Remove Programs item called "SQL Backup". From uninstalls I have done on other machines I would say this is just the client software. And I don't want to remove the client software until I am sure I have removed all the server software (since only the client software allows me to verify that the server software has been removed).
I tried using the command line SQLServerSetup.exe to try to uninstall the Server Components from this other instance. Unfortunately it doesn't give any help on the command line, it just fails (or succeeds?) silently in every case.
I can't remember which order I previously installed Server components on to the 2 instances.
I have refreshed SQLBackup Client many times, and seen updates on other data (eg most recent Log file backed up), so I don't think I have old/stale information on the status of the instance.
Please tell me how to do this.
