If you’ve been a SQL Server DBA for the past 5,10,15 years then your exposure to Linux has likely been minimum or even non-existent.
Consider some of the typical methods you’d use/check when investigating a SQL Server that is no-longer responding:
|Connect using RDP|
|Locate and view SQL Errorlogs|
|Windows Event Logs|
|SQL Server Configuration Manager|
In the Linux column, would you know the corresponding tool?
It’s just a matter of time before a vendor/project/Manager hands over a SQL Server on Linux for you to support and at the end of the day when there is an issue with SQL it’ll likely end up in your lap.
So now, is a really good time to start getting up to speed with Linux support.
