deleting SQL from OLD server

Hi all

SQL and EPO was installed and running on the same server.

A few days ago, I moved SQL to the other server, and it has been working fine.

Today, I tried to shut down MSSQL service in the EPO server, because it's not been used.

I simply tried shut down the MSSQL service, but it failed, because of the dependancy issue.

I looked up KB and found the solution to delete MSSQL dependency from Regestry.

I followed the recommendation, but it still gave me the same error.

- Do you know how to break the dependancy and shutdown MSSQL service?

- Is it ok just to uninstall SQL from old DB server(EPO is still running in the server.) Won't it affect to the running EPO?

Many Thanks,
