Database Restoration Error In Azure

Hi Friends,

(Started watching some more series after ending of Prison Break. GOT & Friends are among few of them.)

Today I would like to share the following error, while I was trying to restore bacpac file from one Azure Server to another Azure Server.

Requirement: There was a need to restore the bacpac file from one environment to another.

What I did was:

1 Took the backup (bacpac) file from one server.
2. While I was restoring it, it was throwing the below error:

the internal target platform type

3. After doing some research, got to know something new, that we have to install “SQL Server Data Tools”. Below is the link to download the file:

4. Once it was installed, we were through the restoration process.

Thanks for reading the article. Stay Tuned.
