I want to Uninstall last default SQL 2005 Instance from the server. However, I do need to keep the SQL Server client tools (like Management Studio) on the server.
If I select just Database engine during Uninstall, only SQL instance will be removed , right? I can still retain the SQL client tools..am I correct?
What will this selection unistall - database engine only or also client tools? (I have selected the SQL instance - MSSQLSERVER and then database engine)
Thanks in advance..
Correct, the client tools are a separate entity all together. If you choose to uninstall SQL Server, then the server will be removed, but the client tools will remain installed.

You will have a choice of what components to uninstall just like you had choices of what to install. Simple choose what you want to remove and you are good to go.
