New features and fixes

This version of the Azure Stack Hub SQL resource provider includes the following improvements and fixes:


  • SQL resource provider portal extension might choose the wrong subscription. The SQL resource provider uses Azure Resource Manager calls to determine the first service admin subscription to use, which might not be the Default Provider Subscription. If that happens, the SQL resource provider doesn't work normally.

  • SQL hosting server doesn't list hosted databases. User-created databases might not be listed when viewing tenant resources for SQL hosting servers.

  • Previous SQL resource provider ( deployment could fail if TLS 1.2 isn't enabled. Updated the SQL resource provider to enable TLS 1.2 when deploying the resource provider, updating the resource provider, or rotating secrets.

  • SQL resource provider secret rotation fails. Fixed issue resulting in the following error code when rotating secrets: New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment - Error: Code=InvalidDeploymentParameterValue; Message=The value of deployment parameter 'StorageAccountBlobUri' is null.

Known issues

  • SQL SKUs can take up to an hour to be visible in the portal. It can take up to an hour for newly created SKUs to be visible for use when creating new SQL databases.

    Workaround: None.

  • Reused SQL logins. Attempting to create a new SQL login with the same username as an existing login under the same subscription will result in reusing the same login and the existing password.

    Workaround: Use different usernames when creating new logins under the same subscription or create logins with the same username under different subscriptions.

  • Shared SQL logins cause data inconsistency. If a SQL login is shared for multiple SQL databases under the same subscription, changing the login password will cause data inconsistency.

    Workaround: Always use different logins for different databases under the same subscription.

  • SQL resource provider fails to add SQL Server Always On listener. When using the listener IP address of the SQL Server Always On Listener, the SQL resource provider VM can't resolve the listener's host name.

    Workaround: Ensure that DNS works correctly to resolve the listener IP to listener host name.
