I have been unsuccessful in getting either structure_dump or schema_dump
to work with MS SQL Server. From what I can tell, that seems to be
expected behavior at this point in Ruby/Rails developement. Is that
about right?

Unfortunately I have to work with a legacy MS SQL database schema and so
"move to mysql" is a no-op.

Hi Mike,

I too am having problems with schema_dump and MS SQL Server.  To delay
issue I've switched to using SQLite for dev and test.  However, I'm
encouraged by the changelog of ActiveRecord 1.13.0:

It mentions supporting migrations for sql server.

I'll post my findings to the list once I've solved the mystery.
