SSIS Execute Process Task Give "Access is Denied" error but it is not related to access control.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hello All - I have a very weired SSIS problem. I am using BIDS in two machines - Windows 7 Professional Edition x64 bit (development workstation) and Windows 2003 Standard Edition x32 bit SP2 (server) . The visual studio version on both the machines are Version 2.0.50727 SP2. I found that my package's ExecuteProcessTask fails with "Access is denied" error in Windows2003 but runs ok in Windows 7 dev box. I then tried to debug the package in the Windows 2003 environment itself. The package failed in debug mode too with the same message. After looking for a while I found that when I shorten the Argument length of the failing ExecuteProcessTask the task did seem to work. So in Windows2003 environment if my argument exceeds 1846 characters the ExecuteProcessTask fails with message "Access is Denied". If the argument string is less than 1846 it works ok. In Windows 7 environment there is no problem at all. It does not seem like access problem but I may be wrong. Has anyone seen this? I will appreciate any reply. Thanks, Niben

Execute Process task - On Error (i want to override the error message)

Hi, In my package I am calling one exe to copy the files from local folders to SFTP. I am using a execute process task and I am passing the parameters like (address, username, password,....). The exe and syntax are given below. SFTPCopier.exe <<machinename>> <<username>> <<password> <<local directory path>> The problem is when the exe is failing to copy the files to SFTP due to some reason, the SSIS package is outputting the entire command in the log information (including the username & password). I dont want to write the password in the log information. I want to remove that password from the log information when an error occured in the execute process task. Can some one please tell me the way to override the message? Can I put a on error handler for that execute process task and use a script task to modify the "ErrorDescription" variable? Will that works? Thanks in advance.  

Implementing Transaction in SSIS Package - [Execute SQL Task] Error: Failed to acquire connection "<

I have a simple SSIS package with three "Execute SQL Tasks". I am using ADO.Net Connection to execute SPs on a DB server. When I execute this package It works fine. So far so good. Now, I need to implement transation on this package. And problem starts now onwards. When I try to execute package after setting TransationOption = Required for the Sequence container which contains all the tasks, I get following error. [Execute SQL Task] Error: Failed to acquire connection "NYCDB0008.Export". Connection may not be configured correctly or you may not have the right permissions on this connection. "NYCDB0008.Export" is the name of the ADO.Net connection. I have been hunting for any solution but all in vain. I have tried changing all DTC settings on the dev as well as Database server. Please respond if anyone has any solution. Thanks! Anand

SSIS Execute Process Task Problems

I have a command to decrypt a file that I can run from the command line and it works beautifully.  However, when I stuff it into an execute process task, it errors out every time or does nothing.   Here is the command I can run from the command line:   gpg -d --passphrase-fd 0 < c:\Dip_Fif.WUZ -o c:\Someoutputfile.in1  -r "KeyName" c:\Someinputfile.in1.pgp     I've pointed the execute process task object to the gpg.exe executable on my system and am stuffing the remainder in the arguments line.  I have also tried changing around all the timeout settings and sucess values.  I have found I can change the success value to 2 and it will show up as being green when complete, but the file doesn't decrypt.  It just in turn will throw an error on the next piece because the required file is not there.   I will probably end up writing a script to get this to work and use a script task but I really want to know why this will not work.   --Thanks--

Send multiple parameters SSIS execute process task



We are using Execute Process Task in SSIS package to execute a batch file to house keep the generated flat files which are older than a week from the archive folder.

The same batch file is used to delete the some temp files generated in the process.

As the Archive folder and temp folder paths are configurable, we are trying to pass the folder paths as parameters to batch file.

I used Expressions tab of Execute process Task Editor to map the variable to Arguments property. This is working fine. but I need to pass one more variable as an Argument.

Can some one help me how to achieve this. Thanks in advance.

SSIS Package fails with Execute Process Task when run from SQL Agent Job


I have an SSIS 2008 package running on Win 2008 64-bit server. The package has an Execute Process Task that runs a net use command using cmd.exe to make a connection.

This runs successfully when tested from the command prompt and runs successfully when the package is run in Visual Studio 2008. However, when the package is called from a SQLAgent job the package fails with the error (actual servernames and passwords removed):

Failing Task Name = EPT Connect mapped drive Error Code = -1073573551 Error Detail = In Executing "C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe" "/C net use
\\servername\foldername /USER:userid password" at "", The process exit code was "1" while the expected was "0".

I have determined that a successfull connection should provide a exit code of 0.

The job runs under a proxy account but as explained when the package has run from within VS 2008 it was also tested to run under the proxy account and is successful.

It is not a 64-bit issue as I have tested it by running the package using the 32-bit version of dtexec.exe and the same problem occurs.

Also I have found that by running a simple command process within the Execute Process Task such as dir *.* it is successful when run from the job indicating that it is in fact something related to the net use command itself when run from

Passing Argument from Execute Process Task (SSIS) to a Batch File



I have a batch process set up, which executes fine as long as the name of the file is built in.  My Execute Process task in SSIS also runs this batch file with succes.

I would like to pass the name of the file as a parameter from the Task (SSIS) to this batch file.  Looks like I am doing something wrong because it is failing.

This is the batch file:
cd \Program Files\WS_FTP Pro\
wsftppro -s "local:D:\Folder1\Folder2\%1" -d HDMS:/To_HDMS/

---  The %1 is the parameter

The argument that I am passing in is in the 'StandardInputVariable'

Would really really appreciate some help!  Thanks so much!

C# newbie stuck - trying to access column data in a SharePoint list in an SSIS script task

Hello, I'm sure this is the simplest question but I can't figure it out, even with Google's help. I am trying to stumble through some C# code in an SSIS script task and I am frustrated that I can't figure out how to do the easiest things.  I eventually want to find data in a column,and then use another list as a lookup to replace that value with another where the existing value matches a value in the lookup list.  So, the data in my (multiple choice) column might be "apples; bananas" and in another list I have a row that contains two columns, the first holding the value "Apples" and the second containing "Red Delicious" and my original column should read: "Red Delicious; bananas." But, alas, I can't even figure out how to see the data that is in a column. Here is my code: /*<br/> Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Script Task<br/> Write scripts using Microsoft Visual C# 2008.<br/> The ScriptMain is the entry point class of the script.<br/> */<br/> <br/> using System;<br/> using System.Data;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint;<br/> using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;<br/> using System.Windows.Forms;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;<br/> <br/> namespace ST_08becda4c05c49cd9f30ea76110076cd.csproj<br/> {<br/> [

Restoring 2008 Database with Filestream - Process cannot access file error

I'm trying to restore a copy of a database that has a filestream and am getting the error below. I've tried with move option to specify a new path and left it with default path, neither worked. Did a trace with procmon, didn't see anything. FileStream1 is a new folder that the restore process creates. I've deleted the folder, tried it with a new name, re-took the backup from the source machine, restarted SQL, rebooted the machine, drive permissions are open. I've run out of ideas on how to debug further. Looking up the error online wasn't much help either. Msg 3634, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 The operating system returned the error '32(The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.)' while attempting 'OpenFile' on 'X:\Data\FileStream1\4ecb2e48-0eee-4c99-a3f0-f1e6c7f00b24\f2efe374-9481-4c1b-a7f2-dcdcee350807\0000001b-0000aaa6-00f6'.

Error Trapping in SSIS Script Task

Hi, I am processing a cube partition using an SSIS script task. The script works out the name of the partition which requires processing based on the system date.The problem I have is whenever there is a failure in the processing task the only error I get is that the script task returned a failure result. This is reported by the SQL job that calls the script task and also by SSIS package logging. I am running SQL2005 SP3How can I get my script to return a meningful error? Thanks in advance.

SSIS 2005 Control Flow Task Priority

The short version is I am looking for a way to prioritize certain tasks in SSIS 2005 control flows. That is I want to be able to set it up so that Task B does not start until Task A has started but Task B does not need to wait for Task A to complete. The goal is to reduce the amount of time where I have idle threads hanging around waiting for Task A to complete so that they can move onto Tasks C, D & E. The issue I am dealing with is converting a data warehouse load from a linear job that calls a bunch of SPs to an SSIS package calling the same SPs but running multiple threads in parallel. So basically I have a bunch of Execute SQL Task and Sequence Container objects with Precedent Constraints mapping out the dependencies. So far no problems, things are working and initial testing looks like it will cut our load time significantly. However I noticed that tasks with no downstream dependencies are commonly being sequenced before those that do have dependencies. This is causing a lot of idle time in certain spots that I would like to minimize. For example: I have about 60 procs involved with this load, ~10 of them have no dependencies at all and can run at any time. Then I have another one with no upstream dependencies but almost every other task in the job is dependent on it. I would like to make sure that the task with the dependencies is running before I pick up any of t

SSIS package is giving error when ran thru JOB...its running good when I execute in BI Studio or Exe

Friends I am getting weird issue...I built an SSIS package. In one variable I used express builder and built like this...

But when I created a job just to execute that package in particular timings...the job is totally failing by throwing error....the error output is like the following: Started:  10:22:33 AM Error: 2010-02-27 10:23:06.23    Code: 0xC00470C2    Source: Rerun_MissingFiles    Description: Error code 0x80020005 occurred attempting to convert from data type DT_WSTR to data type DT_I4.

Error reading .config file in Windows Forms app - Access is denied

I'm attempting to read a connection string from a .config file in a Windows Forms app on a test laptop. A previous version of the application worked just fine, but now I get a configuration exception thrown - "Configuration system failed to initialize." The inner exception message says - "An error occurred loading a configuration file: Access is denied". The user I'm logged in as is in the Administrators group and there's no obvious problems with the config file. The same config file works just fine on my dev machine so it's not an issue with ordering of the XML. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.If a response to your question is helpful or answers it please mark it as such!
