During the installation of SharePoint 2010 I selected the Standalone setting, prior to install SharePoint I had on the box SQL 2008R2 express edition but it seems after SharePoint got installed it also installed the SQL2008 Express edition and used this version as the database server instead of the SQL2008R2.
I would like to know if there's a way to move these databases created during the SharePoint installation to the SQL2008R2 instance and completely remove the SQL 2008 express edition instance without having any ill effects on the SharePoint Environment.
The SharePoint environment has been up for over a week, there is not a lot of content but we deployed some project plans on the Project Server add on to SharePoint 2010. I wonder if the only solution is to reinstall SharePoint without the Standalone setting even that the SQL2008R2 instance is on the same box.
Any ideas on how I can fix these issues are greatly appreciated it. Thanks!
