VMware Data Services Manager enables you to provision databases that run Microsoft SQL Server Editions of Enterprise, Standard, and Developer of version Microsoft SQL Server 2019.
When you use VMware Data Services Manager to create a Microsoft SQL Server database, you configure certain Microsoft SQL Server properties.
The Database Configuration properties, which you configure while creating a Microsoft SQL Server database, identify the name of the default database, the database server port number, and the database administrator user credentials.
|Database Name||The name of the default database.|
|Database Port No||The port number on which the database server runs. The default is 1433. (Read-only)|
|Username||The database administrator user name.|
|Password||The password for the database adminstrator. Apart from alphanumeric characters, the password can only include the special characters, ?, !, @, #, $, %, ^, and *.|
The DB Options Configuration properties control certain runtime characteristics of the Microsoft SQL Server database. These are:
|Property Name||Description||Default Value|
|max_connections||Microsoft SQL Server allows a maximum of 32767 concurrent connections which is the maximum number of users that can simultaneously log in to the Microsoft SQL server database VM.||100|
|locale||Supported through mssql.conf file.||Unset|
|Collation||Can be changed using a T-SQL script.||Unset|
To access a Microsoft SQL ServerL database, the host on which the client application is running must have connectivity to the Application Network configured for the database.
You can use any SQL client application to connect to a database in your Microsoft SQL Server database. To connect, you must be able to identify the FQDN of the Microsoft SQL Server host, the port on which the server is running, and the database name. You must also have the Microsoft SQL Server admin credentials on hand. You can obtain this information from the VMware Data Services Manager console. See Locating the Database Connection Parameters.
