  2. Navigate to the ArcGIS Data Store utilities folder using the following command:
cd Program Files\ArcGIS\DataStore\tools
  1. Run the 'unregisterdatastore' command utility to unregister the relational data store using the following command:
 unregisterdatastore.bat –stores relational –prompt yes
