SSIS For Each loop with data flow hangs on DTC (SID -2) when inside transaction

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
The short story: I have a data flow inside a For Each container that is inside a sequence container.  A transaction is established at the sequence container, with Isolation Level Serializable.  The For Each container is limited to execute only 4 iterations.  The data flow iterates once fine, but the second iteration hangs.  The Activity Monitor shows the process is waiting on a another process with a SID of -2.  From other research in the past, I have found that this is an internal process dedicated to DTC (Distributed Transaction Coordinator). Environment: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 (SP3) on Windows 2008 R2 Standard.  I'm using SQL Server BIDS 2005 for building these packages.  I also have SQL Server 2008 installed and the databases are installed there. The details: The data flow merges data from the same table in two databases, source and target, using a Merge Join component.  It then performs a few transformations and lookups from other tables in the target DB to get IDs.  Then it inserts new records into the target DB or updates existing records in the target DB.  The two source tables are using OLE DB Source components with customized queries.  The insert target component is an OLE DB Destination and the update target component is an OLE DB Command.  In this particular scenario,

How to detect that a Data Flow Task has failed (from inside a custom componet)

Hi, in the PostExecute Method of a custom component i would like to check if the Data Flow Task has been failed. Is that possible? Also it would be great to be able to check if this custom component already got all data or has been marked as "green".  Thanks, Dennis

Custom SSIS Data Flow Component Not Showing in Toolbox or GAC

Hello - I have created a very simple data flow component for SSIS (Actually, I am following this example:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1C2A7DD2-3EC3-4641-9407-A5A337BEA7D3&displaylang=en).  However, when I register the DLL to the GAC, I am unable to find the assembly in C:\Windows\Assembly - even though the GACUTIL says "Assembly Registered Successfully".  Furthermore, after copying the DLL to the PipelineComponents folder for SSIS (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\PipelineComponents), it does not show in the "Choose Items . . ." dialog box of SSIS.   I am running SQL Server 2008 Dev edition, Visual Studio 2010 with .NET 4.0, and Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit edition.  Any assistance/thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Data flow task with multiple destinations randomly hangs

I have a package whose control flow consisting of a single data flow task with multiple destinations continues to hang at random locations.  The data flow task is fairly simple: - One OLE DB source (one query of selecting about 10 fields from one table) - 9 lookups that serve basically as left joins to capture which data "drops off" (does a row redirect on on lookup errors to an "error flow") - Two destinations: one the captures all the data that doesn't drop off from the lookups, and another to capture the data that does drop off; these write to two tables unrelated to each other, and unrelated to any of the tables I'm reading from I have tried the following: - Changed one or both destinations from OLE DB to flat file -- still randomly hangs - Removed both destinations altogether -- this always suceeds.   - Removed destination A and leave destination B -- this always succeeds - Removed destination B and leave destination A -- this always succeeds I took great care in making sure I get no warnings when the package runs, even resolving the unneeded column warnings, and the duplicate keys on all my lookups, but it still hangs. However, once I give up and stop the package, the following error is thrown (among others that appear to be a byproduct of the root issue): Error: 0xC02020C4 at Data Flow Task, OLE_SRC AP12 [1]: The attempt to

Assembly items don't show in SSIS Data Flow

I successfully add a new assembly (MapPoint Batch Geocoder.dll) into GAC using Mscorcfg.msc and I can see it from the assembly list and I've added the dll into SSIS's PipelineComponents folder but for some reason I just cannot see it from SSIS Data Flow Item tab, I saw some others have the similar issue, and I actually tried to fix it based on their solutions such as change the framework version, but nothing changed. I am using VS2008, .NET 3.5 framework. I don't understand how come I can see it from GAC and also can see it through .NET tab in "Add References" but just not from Data Flow Item tab? Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

SSIS data flow Data Types vs. SQL Server Data Types


How do I join a SSIS text field type cast from the Derived Column Transformation Editor with a varchar from an SQL data table in a lookup?

Also, is there any reference on which SSIS data flow datatypes can be JOINed to SQL Server datatypes?

Here's the problem:  I have records in a flat file.  The flat file name contains the data of the records.  When importing, I read the flat file name into a data field using SSIS.  Then, I use FINDSTRING to create a derived column that contains just the file date as YYYYMMDD.

There's a SQL Table that contains Currency Rates, indexed by currency code and date, in DD/MM/YYYY format, but it's stored as a VARCHAR

My problems:

A.) I tried to convert the string, '07302010' into the following formats, without success:





However, none of these can understand the string '20100730' as a date!


B.) Furthermore, if i convert the field into a DTW_STR, it still doesn't match the varchar(50) in my db.


So, basically, despite using all available typecast date formats, and several string formats as well, I can't find a way to

A.) Parse text out of a field

B.) Convert that text to either a DATE format or a TEXT format

C.) Use that resulting field to

Data Flow Task failing to drag-and-drop onto SSIS Control Flow

This morning, I started having problems with Visual Studio 2005 on XP when I tried to create an SSIS project; I was getting an error message about the failure to create an SSIS runtime object, with the reference "Unable to cast COM of type 'Microsoft.SqlServer.DTS.Runtime.Wrapper.PackageNeutralClass' to interface type". Digging here and elsewhere on the Net, I used regsvr32 to re-register msxml3.dll, msxml6.dll, and dts.dll. This allowed me to create a new SSIS project, but I was unable to add a data flow task to the Control Flow pane -- when I dragged the control onto the pane, nothing happened, and when opened the Data Flow pane and clicked on the 'No data flow task has been defined. Click here to create a data flow task" link, I got a 'Failed to create the task. The designer could not be initialized." error. Searching here and on the Net, I uninstalled and reinstalled the SQL Server 2005 workstation tools.

After doing this, I am still unable to create a data flow task by dragging the task out of the toolbox; the pointer assumes the right form for the drag-and-drop, as it does for other tasks, but when I release the mouse button, nothing happens. However, when I go to the Data Flow pane and click on the 'click here to create a new data flow task', it creates the task, and I am able to use copy-and-paste to make copies of the data flow task

MySql Transaction inside a loop.


Hi.  I'm trying to delete a bunch of records in mysql.  The record info to delete (userid, name) is stored in an arraylist.  It seems to only delete the first record and gives an error ("Transaction has already been rolled back or is not pending.") afterwards.  I have the transaction commit inside the loop which I think is the issue but not sure how to go further if I bring it outside of the loop.  Here's the relevant bits of the code.  Thanks in advance.

However, when I go to BI Development Studio and try to add the new task I can't see it in the SSIS Data Flow Items...it is not visible. Does anyone know why I can add/see it?
