systemd[1]: Configuration file /usr/lib/systemd/system/mssql-server.service is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.

@doctorzeus I never used SQLAgent so I don't really know what's going wrong. I followed these two tutorials ( and and it seems to work.

I updated the package because I discovered that Microsoft now specifies the Python 2 interpreter on the scripts, so the sed used to correct the interpreter was wrong.

@gabrielmldantas Did a fresh install this weekend and still getting the same error unfortunately.

Did Microsoft remove SQLAgent availability from the Developer license as otherwise I can't find anything on google referencing the issue so assuming its a package/distro issue?

@gabrielmldantas no luck unfortunately, guessing it's something todo with the upgrade from 2017-2019.. Going to try a fresh install..

Is Microsoft maintaining the 2017 one? If so someone could always start a separate package.

@doctorzeus I didn't have this problem but the 2 or 3 last versions of SQL Server had a problem with OpenSSL causing connection failures. That's why I linked the correct OpenSSL libraries directly into the installation directory. Anyway, a new version was released yesterday and it seems to not need the link anymore, so I removed them from the PKGBUILD. You can try to update to see if it works for you.

Don't know if this is package specific (will delete if I find its not) but since the update to 15.0.2000.5 sqlagent refuses to start with:

SQL Server does not accept the connection (error: 11001). Waiting for Sql Server to allow connections. Operation attempted was: Verify Connection On Start.

The agent makes several attempts and finally gives up with the error:

SQLServer Error: 11001, TCP Provider: No such host is known. [SQLSTATE 08001]

Might be to do with the upgrade from 2017 to 2019.

@pickfire yes, the config and settings scripts still target Python 2.

Does it still requires python2? commented on 2019-11-14 12:51

@doctorzeus thanks a lot.

doctorzeus commented on 2019-11-14 12:33 once installed via pacman you run /opt/mssql/bin/mssql-conf and it will set ask you what edition you want to install..
