While testing SQL Server Replication we setup Replication on our ERP Test DB from SQL Server Enterprise to SQL Server Standard.
We have since got replication up-and-running on our Live database and we no longer need replication on the Test database...
We would like to PROPERLY remove the replication to free up resources and delete the Test Replicated DB.
I have read online about issues with not properly 'disassembling' or shutting down Replication but I have not been able to find a step by step on how to do it.
I just have one test DB that is replicating between these servers that I need to shutdown and remove completely.
SQL 2012, 1 DB, Transactional Replication.
