sqlcmd installed on an Ubuntu LTS instance and I'm able to connect successfully to Windows SQL Server and do queries and such.
sqlcmd -S 192.168.0.100 -U SA -P secret
I need to be able to create a backup of the database (preferably as a gigantic
It appears that the
BACKUP command can only save a .bak file to the remote Windows SQL Server, but I want to save it locally on the Linux client that's actually running
BACKUP DATABASE [MyDatabaseName] TO DISK = N'./MS-SQL-Server-Test-DB.bak' WITH NOFORMAT, NOINIT, NAME = N'MS-SQL-Server-Test-DB Full Database Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10 GO
How can I backup to the local client instead of the remote server?
(I have full sudo access on the Linux client, but only sqlcmd db backup user and SA user access to the Windows Server).
Note: It's Windows Server 2019 or something like that. It doesn't have ssh installed, and I don't think I can get it installed.
