Azure CLI Day 47 – sql server show


In my previous post (http://thinkfirstcodelater.com/blog/?p=3463) I showed you how to use the Windows Azure cross platform command line tools to list your SQL database servers. In this post I’ll show you how to use the tools to get the details for a specific SQL database server.

Once again, just a reminder that I’m using the command line tools on a MacBook Air with OSX (Mavericks) installed, and I’m using Google Chrome as my default browser. However, the experience should be identical on Windows and Linux as well.

Open an instance of your command line (Terminal, Bash, Command Prompt, etc.) and type the following:

azure sql server show -h

The azure sql server show command is the command to use to show information about a specific SQL database server. The only parameter you need to provide is the name of your SQL database server. Now, enter the following into your CLI, substituting where appropriate:

azure sql server show ‘[YOUR SQL SERVER NAME]‘

I used the following:

azure sql server show ‘thbmcjr7xb’

That’s it. In my next post I’ll start looking at how to configure the firewall rules associated with your SQL database server.

Did you know you can try Windows Azure for free for 30 days? Just go to http://aka.ms/thecloud and sign up.
