To install Microsoft SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To upgrade Microsoft SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To uninstall Microsoft SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


Deployment Method:

📝 NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to

2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade sql-server-2019 -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade sql-server-2019 -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Operating System requirements for SQL Server Developer

  • Windows 10 TH1 1507 or greater
  • Windows Server 2016 or greater

Package Specific

Package notes

This package will install SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition using an existing .iso file. If a path to an existing .iso is not supplied, it downloads the same .iso that can be obtained from the SQL Server Basic Installer's Download Media menu.

The initial release of this package is focused on installing and uninstalling a default instance of SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition.

Future plans include better support for non-default instances (including uninstalling).

Note that the install script makes use of Mount-DiskImage as the minimum OS requirements for SQL Server include this cmdlet.

Package Parameters

The following package parameters can be set:

  • /IsoPath: - path to a local copy of the .iso file - if not supplied then .iso is downloaded
  • /IgnorePendingReboot - don't check for pending reboot (Warning, SQL Server installation may fail if reboots are pending)

All other package parameters are passed through to SQL Server Setup, allowing you to customise the installation as necessary.

The following are set by default:

  • /ConfigurationFile: - The path to a configurationfile.ini - defaults to the supplied tools\configurationfile.ini
  • /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS: - A username or group to add to the SQL SysAdmin role - defaults to current user. This option is only set if configurationfile.ini does not contain 'SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS=' at the start of a line.

See for the full list of parameters supported by SQL Server.

To pass parameters, use --params "''" (e.g. choco install sql-server-2019 [other options] --params="'/ITEM:value /ITEM2:value2'").

Example using /IsoPath to use previously downloaded SQL Server .iso

choco install sql-server-2019 --params="'/IsoPath:c:\downloads\SQLServer2019-x64-ENU-Dev.iso'"

Chocolatey Pro / Business users

If you allow the package to download the ISO file, it is suggested you run Chocolatey with the --skip-virus-check parameter, as the online virus scanner doesn't handle files over 500MB. You should use alternate methods of scanning in this case.

Function Get-PendingReboot
    Gets the pending reboot status on a local or remote computer.

    This function will query the registry on a local or remote computer and determine if the
    system is pending a reboot, from Microsoft updates, Configuration Manager Client SDK, Pending Computer 
    Rename, Domain Join or Pending File Rename Operations. For Windows 2008+ the function will query the 
    CBS registry key as another factor in determining pending reboot state.  "PendingFileRenameOperations" 
    and "Auto Update\RebootRequired" are observed as being consistant across Windows Server 2003 & 2008.
    CBServicing = Component Based Servicing (Windows 2008+)
    WindowsUpdate = Windows Update / Auto Update (Windows 2003+)
    CCMClientSDK = SCCM 2012 Clients only (DetermineIfRebootPending method) otherwise $null value
    PendComputerRename = Detects either a computer rename or domain join operation (Windows 2003+)
    PendFileRename = PendingFileRenameOperations (Windows 2003+)
    PendFileRenVal = PendingFilerenameOperations registry value; used to filter if need be, some Anti-
                     Virus leverage this key for def/dat removal, giving a false positive PendingReboot

.PARAMETER ComputerName
    A single Computer or an array of computer names.  The default is localhost ($env:COMPUTERNAME).

    A single path to send error data to a log file.

    PS C:\> Get-PendingReboot -ComputerName (Get-Content C:\ServerList.txt) | Format-Table -AutoSize
    Computer CBServicing WindowsUpdate CCMClientSDK PendFileRename PendFileRenVal RebootPending
    -------- ----------- ------------- ------------ -------------- -------------- -------------
    DC01           False         False                       False                        False
    DC02           False         False                       False                        False
    FS01           False         False                       False                        False

    This example will capture the contents of C:\ServerList.txt and query the pending reboot
    information from the systems contained in the file and display the output in a table. The
    null values are by design, since these systems do not have the SCCM 2012 client installed,
    nor was the PendingFileRenameOperations value populated.

    PS C:\> Get-PendingReboot
    Computer           : WKS01
    CBServicing        : False
    WindowsUpdate      : True
    CCMClient          : False
    PendComputerRename : False
    PendFileRename     : False
    PendFileRenVal     : 
    RebootPending      : True
    This example will query the local machine for pending reboot information.
    PS C:\> $Servers = Get-Content C:\Servers.txt
    PS C:\> Get-PendingReboot -Computer $Servers | Export-Csv C:\PendingRebootReport.csv -NoTypeInformation
    This example will create a report that contains pending reboot information.

    PSVer:   2.0/3.0/4.0/5.0
    Updated: 27JUL2015
    UpdNote: Added Domain Join detection to PendComputerRename, does not detect Workgroup Join/Change
             Fixed Bug where a computer rename was not detected in 2008 R2 and above if a domain join occurred at the same time.
             Fixed Bug where the CBServicing wasn't detected on Windows 10 and/or Windows Server Technical Preview (2016)
             Added CCMClient property - Used with SCCM 2012 Clients only
             Added ValueFromPipelineByPropertyName=$true to the ComputerName Parameter
             Removed $Data variable from the PSObject - it is not needed
             Bug with the way CCMClientSDK returned null value if it was false
             Removed unneeded variables
             Added PendFileRenVal - Contents of the PendingFileRenameOperations Reg Entry
             Removed .Net Registry connection, replaced with WMI StdRegProv
             Added ComputerPendingRename
