How to: Uninstall a Data-Tier Server
Unlike Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server, in Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server you do not install and uninstall the Team Foundation data tier separately. Uninstalling Team Foundation Server is integrated with the Team Foundation application tier.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the Team Foundation data-tier server. For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
