Getting Started with SQL Server on Linux

Download PDF

With the recent public availability of the SQL Server Linux release, I figured I should give it a try, and it went well. Here is all that it took.

  • Download and install to a VM Ubuntu Linux Server 16.04.  (1 hour)
  • Allow port 22 through the firewall to be able to connect to the server with Putty.  (1 min)
  • Follow the SQL Server install steps from Microsoft.  (15 min)
  • Allow port 1433, and 1434 through the firewall to be connect to sql server remotely. (1 min)
  • Connect to the Ubuntu linux box from SSMS on a computer running Windows.

Victory!  I am now connected to a fresh brand new SQL Server running on Ubuntu Linux.
