  • Hi Bhadri1991,

    The prerequisites for Polybase are as follows:

    • 64-bit SQL Server Evaluation edition.
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.
    • Minimum memory: 4 GB.
    • Minimum hard-disk space: 2 GB.
    • Recommended: Minimum of 16-GB RAM.
    • TCP/IP must be enabled for PolyBase to function correctly.
    • In order to use PolyBase, you must have sysadmin or CONTROL SERVER level permissions on the database.

    For more details, please refer to Install PolyBase on Windows, PolyBase features and limitations and Hardware and Software Requirements.

    Hope this could help you.

    Best Regards,

    Amelia Gu
