  1. Antony Batten says:

    It seems that SQL Agent is not supported on SQL vNext on Linux CTP1 … therefore SSMA does not work because SQL Agent is a prerequisite. Is there a workaround?

    1. Sreraman says:

      You are right that SQL Agent is not yet enabled for SQL vNext on Linux. This means that users cannot do server side data migration. However, SSMA automatically defaults to client side data migration in this scenario which provides the users the same functionality.
