I was recently wanting to test out some PolyBase features in SQL Server. Azure being my test environment of choice these days, I spun up an Azure SQL Virtual Machine, but I quickly found that PolyBase wasn’t installed. To add it I would need the install media of course, but how does one get that in an Azure SQL Virtual Machine?
Everybody should test out PolyBase, but that’s because I’m wildly biased. Anyhow, Bob shows us where we can find the installation media.
