At my last job I was able to create a schema from a MSSQL server using
DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader. I believe I specified specifically what
tables I wanted it to create a schema for, though. I did have to ignore
a few warnings about column types, and manually tweak a few other
things. In any case, it is possible and saved me a ton of time since
the tables had way too many columns.
