Is it safe to uninstall SharePoint or remove the role? We don't use it, (need the system resources for other server roles), and have disabled the related in services console, but SBS console still shows a Critical status due to SharePoint stopped, and App logs still has tons of errors relating to sharepoint and spsearch.

However we do use the following;
SBS Exchange, OWA, RWW, Outlook Anywhere and most other standard SBS roles. We have also removed the WSUS role, but I can't find how to remove the SharePoint server role.

Can this be done without effecting other services and what are the steps I should take?

Not recommended and it may cause issues with IIS or Exchange.  It is recommended to disable the services.

Then is there a way to turn off the bogus error reporting so that server managers and console status show normal rather than critical alerts for Sharepoint?

First, I agree that you should NOT uninstall SharePoint on an SBS.  It's integral to the server's operation.

The resolution to not getting the alerts is to re-enable the SharePoint services.  As stated above, the operation of SharePoint is integral to SBS -- this is why you are getting critical alerts.

FYI, if SharePoint is taking up resources on the server and you want to limit that -- follow this article:

Is that why you only gave a "B" grade?

That makes no sense at all...  I happened to see your unanswered question and took the time to give you a correct answer.  Why would you then choose to penalize me for that effort?

Jeffrey, I had closed that article because I had received no response after two weeks. The grade B was given for the first responder, not yours.  I think the moderator or somebody intervened after I closed & posted the grade so I'm not sure who the points went to.  I wish you had responded first. You would have got an A. Sorry.

I'm a new member evaluating the service for 6 months. Still learning the process. Is it possible for me to direct any further questions to you? I have many in the queue, waiting for a chance to submit.

I realize you are fairly new to this site... so perhaps you aren't aware...

The grade only goes to the answer(s) which have been selected to close the question.  Since only mine was selected, that is where the grade went.

No big deal... I just try make sure that I don't leave anyone without the answer they are looking for.

With regards to directing questions to me?  You CAN ask a private question, but you are better off just posting.  I sometimes will be away from the site for a few days at a time.
