Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Enterprise - Proven platform for enterprise your database operations

  • August 09, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Ease of deployment and installation. Integrates very well with other Microsoft products and the cloud. Very easy administration with Microsoft SQL Manager. Ability to run SQL script on the management console.
What do you dislike about the product?
Sometimes databases need to be repaired/recovered after certain restoration operations when restoring from DB backup. It would have been nice to have a repair option in the interface instead of using the SQL commands to attempt recovery with the restore option.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Microsoft SQL Server 2017 on Windows 2016 is our main database warehouse for managing all databases within multiple RDBMS platforms. From a single management console, we can easily operate and recover all our databases. In the past we were running several versions on different databases (including different vendors). Management of all those systems required skills as well as a learning curve. Having migrated to a single uniform platform allowed us to manage our database more efficiently and efectifely.

Works - But needs documentation

  • July 12, 2019

Works well - but you need some kind of documentation. I struggled to get onto the SQL server.

Login as a local admin and then login into MS SQL Manager that way. You can then go into Security\Logins and enable the sa account.

How does one login to SQL Server?

  • May 23, 2018

Absolutely frustrating to figure out HOW to login to SQL Server on this box. Zero instructions! Happened to come here to the comments to find out from another user

You login using the local Administrator account.

This isn't anywhere in the documentation. Spin up the AMI, Domain Join if necessary. Login to the server as the login administrator, then open up MSSQL Management Studio and login using the Windows Authentication method...Add you login accounts from there. SA is also disabled out of the box.

No documentation on SQL passwords

  • March 27, 2018
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

I guess it might work ok - but I'll never know. There is zero documentation on the default credentials for SQL 2017, making it unusable. How hard would it be to include a brief document along with this AMI? I'd have been better off installing SQL Server myself.
