MSSQL on Linux

Posted on 2006-04-27

I currently have some MSSQL databases which I wish to use on Linux. I don't want to have to convert them to MySQL because it's just too long-winded.

Is there a solution out there for running MSSQL on Linux?

    Accepted Solution

    There is nothing under Crossover office or under wine. It appears no  has got MSSQL to run and install yet. Navicat has a good migration tool for MSSQL > MySql. I just converted MSSQL to Oracle.(Oracle has a great MSSQL or Access migration tool, very easyt all automated. Not like it use to be!)You can download Oracle for linux for free. The migration tool for oracle is also free.

    I'll have to give that a try. For the moment i've setup a webserver that can access the current SQL server - as a temp solution.

    Hopefully MSSQL will come to Linux soon, everything else has! Thanks for letting me know + the extra info.
