The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen.
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Lots of you will now say that you already knew that, since you have it as a VM in Azure.
There was some error on not being able to install "mssql-tools" due to a missing dependency. Apt-get that dependency, get a similar message on a new package. Try that, another dependency. After four of those, a Y/n on install, and work your way up through the dependencies. That's the tools (like SqlCmd), Sql Server was already running.
Connection error; so this idiot tried to connect using Windows Authentication
Try Sql Server authentication and login with sa, new connection error. Quick google teaches me that SqlWb needs to have the (default) port number after the instance name. So, add ",1433" after the instance name, and it connects, acting like a normal Sql Server instance would.
Created a database, created a table, from MS Sql Wb running on a Win10 machine. No additional errors, which must mean I done something wrong. Reboot, and it still works! It's running on not-so-great hardware (hence Linux), but it is still bloody fast (not much other stuff installed). If it works on that machine, then it may work on my Raspberry. Imagine a backup-databaseserver the size of a creditcard. Now all I need to build my own cloud[^] is to get RAID5 working on cheap USB pendrives.
Thank you Microsoft (and Scott)
