Remove SharePoint

This Wiki page describes how to remove SharePoint: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/11177.sharepoint-2010-best-practices-removing-sharepoint-from-servers.aspx

The steps are as follows:

1. Log in to each of the SharePoint servers in the farm

2. Run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard on each of the Web Front End servers and unjoin them from the farm. Provided no Web Apps were built outside of SharePoint’s control, they should be automatically deprovisioned along with the web sites.

3. Run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard on the App server, and choose to remove it as the last server in the farm.

4. Go into SQL Management Studio and remove the Configuration, Content, and Service Application Databases.

5. Rejoin servers and recreate the farm to your new specifications.
