One of our DBA's installed an instance of SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition onto our multi instance cluster. It was not caught until now. We need for it to be Standard Edition. What will we need to do to achieve this? Would we just wipe the Enterprise edition instance... install a new Standard Edition instance with the same name. Restore the System and User databases? Thank you in advance for any advice.

No, only edition upgrades are supported
