Repair isn't necessary. Modify is a totally supported thing in maintenance mode.

I *think* a repair can be used to add features that were not selected
previously... That _might_ be an option for you.

Personally, I've never liked installing databases from MSIs. Given that
upgrades will eventually require non-trivial migrations, I've always
preferred to handle databases as a separate data step. Ultimately I don't
care which system is used to establish a connection to the database server
so installing an MSI on the system used to connect to the database server
always seemed wrong to me.
