Migrating a SQL Server database from Windows to Linux.

Applies to: SQL Server 2017, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7.3.

On this article we are showing how to migrate a SQL Server database from a SQL Server 2012 instance installed on Windows Server to a SQL Server 2017 instance installed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
