Removing or Uninstalling a Server from SharePoint Farm

If anybody is ever planning on Uninstalling/Removing a server from a SharePoint 2007 Farm, do not go to “Servers in a farm” and click “Remove Server” or directly uninstall SharePoint 2007 on the server through Control Panel. This will cause failures in timer job status and will cause some problems down the road. The best way to Uninstall or Remove a server is as follows

1. Log on to the server you want to remove or uninstall from the farm,

2. Run the SharePoint Products and Technology Configuration Wizard,

3. Select “Disconnect from Farm” and click on next,

4. Click OK to continue the wizard,

5. The wizard will take you through the steps and you should be see the “Successful Message”,

Now you can uninstall SharePoint 2007 and the server disconnected from the Farm.
