Has anyone got back to smoore33? Maybe he was answered directly. I hope he got it fixed.
To be honest, I am starting this post out a little frustrated. This has happened multiple times. I guess a good question is why am I uninstalling and reinstalling it. But, that is not the issue. The issue is I have to pay a friend of mine who works for SQL development at Microsoft $60.00 each time to get it to attach to the instance. This is the only software I have owned where I can't simply uninstall it. I have deleted it correctly. It leaves the VBR catalog. I delete that. It leaves a few other folders. I guess I am not sure which SQL Server is the server with the instance or I would blast that. I should have the option of installing and leaving SQL or uninstalling everything. I want to uninstall everything. I WANT TO DESTROY THE CONFIG.
The error message that the database that is still in use is newer than what I am installing. I am installing the latest update. I am sure I could contact an engineer. My sense is they could fix it easily and for less than $60.00. But, I don't want to have to contact support. I just want to be able to uninstall it using Windows Programs and Features and reinstall it. Where it asks do I want to use the RIVERVIEWDR\Instance, I should be able to simply chooses that instance. And, you don't have a choice. The radio button for installing somewhere else is greyed out.
Please just give me instructions on how to uninstall by a) leaving SQL and b) nuking the whole thing. And, then, please give me step by step instructions to reinstall and get past that window. My issue is when I uninstall, I assume that the Veeam Database that is still running or working or whatever it says, should be gone.
Excuse me, but it is almost time for my SQL friend to remote in to fix the problem. Please don't get me wrong. I love Veeam. Support is awesome. But, one should be able to uninstall it and reinstall it with no issues. Thanks.
To smoore33's issue, I am assuming one could install over 9?
