High Security Prices–Always Encrypted 2019 needs Datacenter Edition

I was recently doing some work on Always Encrypted in SQL Server 2019 and needed to set up an HGS server. I went through most of the setup, and then encountered this issue:

2019-04-24 07_52_51-Window

After embarrassing myself to other MVPs and Microsoft, I realized I hadn’t read the requirements for the secure enclaves. I need 2 machines, but the SQL Server has to run on Windows 10 or Windows 2019 Server – Datacenter Edition.

Grrr, I had built a machine for this and need to tear it down and restart the process. It’s not that hard, but it’s annoying.

I should learn to read more carefully.
