Not able to install MSSQL 2019 DATABASE on linux 7.8 (`GLIBC_2.27' not found ) RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello Team,

    Microsoft docs says MSSQL  2019 can be installed on  RHEL 7.3 - 7.8, or 8.0 - 8.2 machine with at least 2 GB of memory.

    Now after having and EC2 instance ready while trying to install mssql server I am getting below error. After researching a lot I couldn't find any suitable solution. One solution says we can't upgrade this GLIBC so better to install on RHEL 8 and even we can upgrade from RHEL 7.8 to 8.

    Can you please let us know how to deal with this issue. If solution is to go with version 8 can you please update the docs.

    /opt/mssql/bin/sqlservr: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.27' not found (required by /opt/mssql/bin/sqlservr)
    /opt/mssql/bin/sqlservr: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.18' not found (required by /opt/mssql/bin/../lib/

    Awaiting for quick response. Thank You!!
