I noticed Microsoft Office components installed in a production SQL Server Box (which is part of an availability group - currently the principal)
microsoft windows server 2012 r2 datacentre,
Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2690 v3 @ 2.60GHz, 2597 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
I find installed the
Microsoft Office 2013 - but the license is not activated.
I also find the following office applications:
and when I look at the windows task scheduler I see the following 3 scheduled tasks that are related to the office application.
I have already disabled the Telemetry Windows schedules.
I don't believe there will be a problem in uninstalling this office from the production server, still I would like to be clear.
How can I find out if there are any dependencies from sql server to this application?
P.S. As it is a virtual machine, VMWARE, I will create an snapshot before I do the uninstall, if any problem I have a safe place to roll back to.
