  1. Make backups portable to on-premise SQL

    Get this message when attempting to restore an SMI backup to on-premise SQL:

    The database was backed up on a server running version 15.00.0700. That version is incompatible with this server, which is running version xx.xx.xxxx. Either restore the database on a server that supports the backup, or use a backup that is compatible with this server.

    Lock in is risky for customers for a number of reasons. A workaround is using BACPAC but getting an established database into a state where BACPAC doesn't spew errors is difficult in our experience.
