MSSQL in Docker

I recently had to add MSSQL (Microsoft SQL) support to PyHSS, and to be honest I wasn’t looking forward to it.

I was expecting I’d have to setup a VM running Server 2016, then load those roles etc.

But instead:

docker run -e 'ACCEPT_EULA=Y' -e 'SA_PASSWORD=thisisthepasswordforMSSQL99#!' -p 1433:1433 -d mcr.microsoft.com/mssql/server:2017-latest

And it was up and running.

Way more painless than I expected!
