Machine Learning Server (SQL): how to backup and restore Python and Packages RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installation of numpy-1.18.1-cp35-cp35m-win_amd64.whl package in Python 3.5 (machine learning server 9.4.7 for windows x64, SQL Management Studio v17.9.1, MSSQL Server 2017) I recieved the error:

        Unable to communicate with the runtime for 'Python' script. Please check the requirements of 'Python' runtime.
    If will not be able to fix the problem, I would prefer not to reinstall ML Server from scratch, but restore Python and its packages from backup.

    Is there a method of backup and restore Python and Packages?
    May be, it is sufficient to backup and restore some Python folders like: 

        C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL14.MSSQLSERVER\PYTHON_SERVICES\

    Thank you very much.
