  • Create the machine

echo 'export PATH="$PATH:/opt/mssql-tools/bin"' >> ~/.bash_profile
echo 'export PATH="$PATH:/opt/mssql-tools/bin"' >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
  • Add remote access in the local Firewall
sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=1433/tcp --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --reload
  • Add remote access on the VM only for your IP

    --resource-group myGroup ^
    --nsg-name MSFT-DB-01NSG ^
    --name allow-sqlserver-hi ^
    --protocol tcp ^
    --priority 1010 ^

That's it.
