To indicate that you accept the MS SQL Server image EULA, call the acceptLicense() method, or place a file at the root of the classpath named container-license-acceptance.txt, e.g. at src/test/resources/container-license-acceptance.txt. This file should contain the line: (or, if you are overriding the docker image name/tag, update accordingly).
