After Microsoft has launched SQL Server for Linux, even if your main tech stack is tied to Windows Server you may need to copy the database to another SQL Server located on a Linux computer.
For example, this can come in handy if you want to provide developers with a database for testing without buying a Windows Server license.
There are a few ways to tackle this task. This article examines the following methods to copy SQL Server database from Windows to Linux:
- Using T-SQL’s BACKUP DATABASE and RESTORE DATABASE commands;
- Generation of T-SQL database script (such as mysqldump);
- Creating BACPAC;
- SqlBak service.
