SQL Server 2017 on LINUX | Installing SQL Server on Ubuntu

In this article we shall discuss about the installation SQL Server 2017 on Ubuntu 16.04.

Note – To configure SQL Server on Ubuntu, run the following commands in a terminal to install the mssql-server package. If you have previously installed a CTP or RC release of SQL Server 2017, you must first remove the old repository before registering one of the GA repositories.

Steps-

1. Import the public repository GPG keys:

	--

	sudo wget -qO- https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | sudo apt-key add -

	--
	

2. Register the Microsoft SQL Server Ubuntu repository.

	--

	sudo add-apt-repository "$(wget -qO- https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/16.04/mssql-server-2017.list)"

	--
	

3. Run the following commands to install SQL Server.

	--

	sudo apt-get update
	sudo apt-get install -y mssql-server

	--
	

4. After the package installation finishes, run mssql-conf setup and follow the prompts to set the SA password and choose your edition.

	--

	sudo /opt/mssql/bin/mssql-conf setup	

	--
	

Notes-

1. You can choose editions from Evaluation, Developer, and Express.
2. Specify a strong password for the SA account – Minimum length 8 characters, including uppercase and lowercase letters, base 10 digits and/or non-alphanumeric symbols.

5. Once the configuration is done please verify that the service is running or not.

	--

	systemctl status mssql-server

	--
	

Note – If you plan to connect remotely, you might also need to open the SQL Server TCP port (default 1433) on your firewall.
