Hi Steve, how about if we have 5 user database enabled with TDE and want to remove TDE permanently only on one/few database?

One thing the article does not take into account is all the backups that will be in-accessible if the certificates are removed. I have a couple of posts about this area http://tinyurl.com/tdeandbackups and http://tinyurl.com/tdeandbackups2 about this.

Around 10 months ago I deployed TDE on a database I was developping, when I turned it off I was confronted with this problem.
I had to remove the database and use a backup from for the TDE to restore it, luckily no data was lost since it was still a 'proof-of-concept' database.

A few months later we deployed it without TDE since we still needed a lot of work and now we're in the process of removing it since its design no longer fits into the concept it was designed for.

This is one of those knowledge from hard experience things...nice of you to share.

Thank you for sharing the article.

It's something great to know before facing a situation like that which may get people fired if they're not careful.
