MS SQL to MySQL and the Workbench - Several Issues
Posted by: Zachary NOT_FOUND

I'd like to migrate some MSSQL data to MySQL and tried a few tools (SQLyog, etc) and most say that the MySQL Workbench should work.

Well I first had MariaDB setup on an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS box and found that the workbench is just not happy with it. So removed all that and did a stock installation of MySQL from the Ubuntu repos.

I'm still having an issue. I'm not against paying for the workbench, if it makes a difference, but would like to see if it meets my needs before I do so.

I CAN connect and issue queries on my box as a standard user locally using: mysql -u root -p

I CAN also connect via SSH tunnel to this box from SQLyog remotely on same LAN. So everything should be setup correctly permission-wise.

I CAN connect to the database using the workbench on the same LAN, but I cannot do a migration using the migration wizard.

Can someone give me some guidance. I think the migration wizard is lying about the connection attempt.


Some logs from the migration attempt.....
