After completing this course, students will be able to:
Describe key capabilities and components of SQL Server on Linux
Describe how to deploy SQL Server on Linux
Describe how to install the additional optional components to SQL Server
Describe how to configure SQL Server on Linux
Describe how to connect and manage SQL server images on Linux
Describe how to migrate databases from other database systems to SQL Server on Linux and provide disaster recovery
Describe the high availability features of SQL Server on Linux

Course Outline

Module 1: Introduction to SQL Server on Linux
Describe key capabilities and components of SQL Server on Linux.
Why is SQL Server on Linux?
SQL Server on Linux capabilities
Linux SQL Server VM in Azure

Module 2: Deploying SQL Server on Linux
This module examines deploying SQL Server to a number of common Linux instances.
Deploying SQL Server on Ubuntu
Deploying SQL Server on SUSE
Deploying SQL Server on Red Hat
Deploying SQL Server containers on Docker
Lab : Deploying SQL Server on Linux
Installing SQL Server
Installing command line tools
Creating a database
Create a SQL Server 2017 Docker container

Module 3: Installing additional components
When you install the SQL Server on Linux with the mssql-server package, only the core database engine is installed. Additional components, such as SQL Server Agent, Full-Text Search and SQL Server Integration Services must be installed from separate
packages. This module covers the installation process for these additional components.
SQL Server agent
SQL Server full-text search
SQL Server integration services
Lab : Installing additional components
SQL Server agent
SQL Server full-text search
SQL Server integration services
Remove the Azure virtual machine

Module 4: Configuring SQL Server on Linux
Once a Microsoft SQL Server on Linux instance is installed, you must configure it. Since SQL Server on Linux does not include a Linux-native GUI tool for configuring SQL Server settings, you must use command-line tools and options to configure aspects of
the SQL Server behavior. This module covers configuring SQL Server on Linux and SQL Server on Linux Docker containers.
Configuring SQL Server with mssql-conf
Configure a SQL Server on Linux Docker image

Module 5: Managing Database Solutions for SQL Server for Linux
Once you have installed and configured Microsoft SQL Server on Linux, you need to know how to connect to your SQL Server on Linux instance, both to manage SQL Server and to connect your applications to SQL Server. In this module, you will learn about
several ways that developers and administrators can connect to SQL Server instances running on Linux..
Connecting to SQL Server on Linux
Managing SQL Server on Linux
Lab : Managing SQL Server on Linux
Connect to SQL Server on Linux
Manage SQL Server on Linux

Module 6: Migrating Databases to SQL Server on Linux and Disaster Recovery
Once you are familiar with the basic operation of Microsoft SQL Server on Linux, you are likely to need to import data. The data you import might take the form of whole databases that you are migrating to SQL Server on Linux from SQL Server on Windows, or
from another RDBMS. You might also need to import data to or export data from individual tables or groups of tables in your databases. This module introduces various techniques for moving data and databases to and from SQL Server on Linux.
Backup and restore
Database export and import
SQL Server migration assistant
Bulk copy program
SQL Server integration services
Lab : Migrating databases
Migrate a database with backup and restore
Migrate a database with SQL Server migration assistant

Module 7: High Availability
SQL Server on Linux can power mission-critical database systems with high-availability technologies at several different granularities. Log shipping provides high availability for single databases. Failover clustering provides automatic failover and
redundancy for SQL Server instances. Availability groups provide high availability, disaster recovery, and read load balancing for groups of databases. This module covers configuring these technologies for SQL Server on Linux.
Log shipping
Failover clustering
Availability groups
Lab : High availability
Configure log shipping
Create a read-scale availability group
