I am having reasonable success running SQL Server for Linux on Docker for Mac, as per the instructions on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/linux/sql-server-linux-setup-docker. The article also notes that:
Volume mapping for Docker-machine on Mac with the SQL Server on Linux image is not supported at this time.
This, of course, makes it difficult to do any more than really simple testing on the Mac if you have to re-install the database every time you start up Docker.
Has anybody a suggested strategy for maintaining a database beyond the current session?
