How to change SAP from Cluster to Standalone configuration
We have ECC 6.0(no EHP), Windows 2003 SP2, SQL Server 2005 SP4 configured in a Failover cluster with MSCS (we will eventually upgrade OS and DB).
We have a requirement to switch SAP and SQL Server from the current cluster configuration to standalone.
I would appreciate if anyone could provide me with the steps to do this and/or any hints or things to watch when executing this procedure?

As you might be aware both Windows 2003 and MSSQL 2005 are out of support from SAP.
Also I understand from your message that you plan to upgrade OS and DB.
The best approach would be to migrate existing ECC system to a new hardware with new OS and DB combination. Target system should be installed without cluster during migration.
You may check PAM for supported OS and DB version for ECC environment.
