Rocky Linux 8.4 is now available for download

After a long wait, the first stable and production-ready release of Rocky Linux is finally available! Rocky Enterprise Software Foundation ( RESF ) announced the release of Rocky Linux 8.4 on June 21, 2021, after months of intense development. Up until the release of Rocky 8.4, only the Beta version – Rocky Linux 8.3 RC ( Release Candidate ) 1– was available. It was intended for testing purposes and not for use in production workloads.

Rocky Linux 8.4 is 100% binary compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4 and provides all the goodies associated with RHEL 8.4 at absolutely no cost. Its release is welcome news to organizations that depended on CentOS 8 for their production workloads as they can now seamlessly migrate to Rocky Linux 8.4.

SQL Server Always On Availability Groups for SQL Server Linux instances

In this 29th article of the SQL Server Always On Availability Groups series, we configure the AG between SQL Server Linux instances.

Introduction

SQL Server 2017 & 2019 works on the cross-platform operating system: Windows and Linux. You can use SQL Server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, and Ubuntu. You can install it on-premise or cloud solutions such as Azure, AWS.

Environment details

In this article, we create an availability group between two Linux instances. For this purpose, we require two virtual machines in the Oracle VM VirtualBox. You can follow my earlier article SQL Server 2019 on Linux with Ubuntu, and prepare the virtual machines with Ubuntu OS.

I use the following virtual machines in this article:

  • linuxnode2: 10.0.2.51 – Initially, it acts as the primary replica
  • linuxnode3: 10.0.2.50 – Initially, it acts as the Secondary replica
  • Domain Controller and DNS: VDITest3 (10.0.2.15)
  • SSMS client on Windows VM: SQLNode3 (10.0.2.44)

Configure the SQL Server Linux VM’s for static IPs

By default, once you create a virtual machine, it gets a dynamic IP address. The dynamic IP address might change when you reboot the OS. We need to assign the static IP address using the network configuration of Ubuntu.

Connect to the virtual machine linuxnode3, launch terminal and install the ifconfig utility like below. We use the ifconfig command to check the network interfaces and associated IP addresses.
