"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is a pain and it does not support some of the newer data types in SQL Server.  This question has a section at the end where the asker explains how it finally did it.  The 'mssql' driver on Linux is not the same as the 'mssql' driver on Windows.
