  1. SA_PASSWORD: “change_this_password” as shown on the docker-compose.yml file did not work for me and container logs had the following message:

    2019-07-17 14:19:20.63 spid31s ERROR: Unable to set system administrator password: Password validation failed. The password does not meet SQL Server password policy requirements because it is not complex enough. The password must be at least 8 characters long and contain characters from three of the following four sets: Uppercase letters, Lowercase letters, Base 10 digits, and Symbols..
    2019-07-17 14:19:20.63 spid31s An error occurred during server setup. See previous errors for more information.

  2. It seems that you need to change your password with something complex that fulfills the given criteria. “AEdCC.b9” should work I guess.

  3. Can you tell me which npm package you are using and what version? I tried `npm i -g mssql` but that will not take the arguments you describe, it says no such file -u.

  4. where does the Data and log files stored? If it is inside the container by default, how can we map to the host MacOs volume?

    How do we backup the database to outside of the container?
