Hi,
We are having difficulty uninstalling a named instance from our 2-node,
active-active cluster.

When we try using the CD setup program, none of the instances appear in the
drop down to select which instance to remove.  I have heard that there is a
'manual' method to do this uninstall but can't find any clear instructions to
do this on a cluster.

I need to remove 2 named instances from the cluster which has 6 instances on
it.

Any advice, assistance etc is greatly appreciated.
