Steps to remove High Availability(MS SQL server as backend database)
- In Windows, right-click the PMP tray icon and then click "Exit"
- Shutdown both Password Manager Pro primary and secondary services, if running
- IMPORTANT : Take a copy of the entire Password Manager Pro installation folder before applying the upgrade pack and keep it in some other location. If something goes wrong with the PMP upgrade, you can rely on the copy. All your settings will remain intact. Additionally, take a backup of the PMP database.
- Login to MS SQL Server management studio and delete the following files/folders as explained in the screenshots below:
