@gabrielmldantas no luck unfortunately, guessing it's something todo with the upgrade from 2017-2019.. Going to try a fresh install..

Is Microsoft maintaining the 2017 one? If so someone could always start a separate package.

@doctorzeus I didn't have this problem but the 2 or 3 last versions of SQL Server had a problem with OpenSSL causing connection failures. That's why I linked the correct OpenSSL libraries directly into the installation directory. Anyway, a new version was released yesterday and it seems to not need the link anymore, so I removed them from the PKGBUILD. You can try to update to see if it works for you.

Don't know if this is package specific (will delete if I find its not) but since the update to 15.0.2000.5 sqlagent refuses to start with:

SQL Server does not accept the connection (error: 11001). Waiting for Sql Server to allow connections. Operation attempted was: Verify Connection On Start.

The agent makes several attempts and finally gives up with the error:

SQLServer Error: 11001, TCP Provider: No such host is known. [SQLSTATE 08001]

Might be to do with the upgrade from 2017 to 2019.

@pickfire yes, the config and settings scripts still target Python 2.

Does it still requires python2? commented on 2019-11-14 12:51

@doctorzeus thanks a lot.

doctorzeus commented on 2019-11-14 12:33 once installed via pacman you run /opt/mssql/bin/mssql-conf and it will set ask you what edition you want to install.. commented on 2019-11-14 10:33

I am sorry for this question, but I am not sure about licence of this mssql server. I need free legal Express version, is it possible to use this package or I need another RPM from Microsoft? Thanks for answer.

When I try to run the setup routine, I get as far as setting a password and then it dies with the error below, so I was wondering if there is anything else I am supposed to be doing:

Confirm the SQL Server system administrator password:

If you get the following error after updating to 14.0.3076.1+ when running mssql-conf setup (taken from the log file):

TDSSNIClient initialization failed with error 0x2742, status code 0xa. Reason: Unable to initialize the TCP/IP listener. A socket operation encountered a dead network.

This seems to be an issue when ipv6 is disabled via the kernel option. To fix this either enable IPV6 or (even better) disable ipv6 via sysctl instead.
