I am using a SQL on RHEL 8.2, have installed Commvault Filesystem and SQL agent 11.24 on it.


[sqladmin@SQL82~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.2 (Ootpa)
[sqladmin@SQL82 ~]$


Have used sqladmin which has necessary sysadmin rights and added these under properties of SQL client however still unable to discover any DBs in the subclient. Any clue ?

Hi @Dipendra 

Thanks for the question.

Please take a look at Microsoft SQL Server: System requirements and ensure your environment meets these requirements.

RHEL 8.2 is listed as supported:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 - 7.8, or 8.0 - 8.3 Server  /  EXT4 or XFS


There is also a requirement for ODBC 17.x or newer:

On Linux, Install Microsoft ODBC Driver 17.x or a More Recent Version

Install ODBC driver 'Microsoft ODBC 17.x' or above on the SQL server Linux client that you want to back up.
