How do i uninstall sql server 2012 SSAS Resource (Multidim instance) from a cluster, Other Resource that exist in this instance include DB and agent. I do want to have any impact to the DB engine as this is being actively used but have to uninstall the SSAS only.

The reason behind this is developers decided to go with tabular instance instead of multidim SSAS instance, so I wanted to remove the multi dim SSAS instance in the cluster and install it as tabular.

If there is any way to change multidim SSAS to tabular that would help too (but from the reading that i have done, Its not an option).

This is a SQL 2012 sp1 (cu3) \ Server 2012 Datacenter

Go to the uninstall page in setup.exe. Then select what needs to be uninstalled. I have had no issues uninstalling instances and other specific things, it does not impact other resources.

I am concerned because of this kb for 2008, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2547273 .

I dont find anything for 2012 and wonder if the above kb article still holds for 2012 SSAS cluster install.

I don't have the answer, and the article is too vague to really know. You'll either need to try it out or contact Microsoft.

Thanks for your response, I ended you unstalling and reinstalling and then attaching the DB's later.
