The Azure VM pre-configures the firewall to open the SQL Server port 1433 for remote connections. But to remotely connect, you also need to add a network security group rule as described in the next section.

Configure for remote connections

To be able to remotely connect to SQL Server on an Azure VM, you must configure an inbound rule on the network security group. The rule allows traffic on the port on which SQL Server listens (default of 1433). The following steps show how to use the Azure portal for this step.

  1. In the portal, select Virtual machines, and then select your SQL Server VM.
  2. In the list of properties, select Network interfaces.
  3. Then select the Network Interface for your VM.
  4. Click the Network security group link.
  5. In the properties of the Network Security Group, selct Inbound security rules.
  6. Click the +Add button.
  7. Provide a Name of "SQLServerRemoteConnections".
  8. In the Service list, select MS SQL.
  9. Click OK to save the rule for your VM.

Connect to the Linux VM

If you already use a BASH shell, connect to the Azure VM using the ssh command. In the following command, replace the VM user name and IP address to connect to your Linux VM.

You can find the IP address of your VM in the Azure portal.

If you are running on Windows and do not have a BASH shell, you can install an SSH client, such as PuTTY.

  1. Run PuTTY.
  2. On the PuTTY configuration screen enter your VM's public IP address.
  3. Click Open and enter your username and password at the prompts.

Configure SQL Server

  1. After connecting to your Linux VM, open a new command terminal.
  2. Set up SQL Server with the following command.

    sudo /opt/mssql/bin/mssql-conf setup

    Accept the License and enter a password for the system administrator account. You can start the server when prompted.
