Is it possible to install IaaS Agent extension in full mode for Ubuntu with SQL Server? If not, is there any prediction of this happening?

    Hi @Thiago Pereira da Silva

    The SQL IaaS Agent extension on Linux is only available in lightweight mode, which supports only changing the license type and edition of SQL Server. Use the Azure CLI or Azure PowerShell to register your SQL Server VM with the extension in lightweight mode for limited functionality.

    Reference https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-sql/virtual-machines/linux/sql-iaas-agent-extension-register-vm-linux?view=azuresql&tabs=bash#register-vm
