10.5.1 Preparations

To be able to migrate from Microsoft SQL Server, ensure the following:

  • The source SQL Server instance is running, and accepts TCP connections.

  • You know the IP and port of the source SQL server instance. If you will be migrating using a Microsoft ODBC driver for SQL Server (the default in Windows), you will need to know the host and the name of the SQL Server instance.

  • Make sure that the SQL Server is reachable from where you will be running MySQL Workbench. More specifically, check the firewall settings.

  • Make sure that the user account has proper privileges to the database that will be migrated.
