One of my clients has asked for a setup that’s a bit unusual. I installed him a minimal Rocky Linux 8.7 server with a MariaDB database server. The whole thing is running as a guest system on Windows Server.
There’s a Windows guest system running on that same server, and an application running on that VM has to connect to the MariaDB server running on Linux.
I’m currently looking for a simple MySQL/MariaDB command line client for Windows that would allow me to test the connection. I’ve already tested remote connections locally on my workstation, and it works fine. But I’m 100% Linux here, so my testing capacities for Windows are a bit limited.
What do I have to install on Windows to get the simple
mysql command that would allow me to test the connection via a simple
mysql -u dbuser -p dbuserpass -h <ip_address> ? On Linux that would be a simple
dnf install mariadb.
