Unable to obtain password in the connection string

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

I am reading a connection string for SQL Authenicated user from the SSIS Package Configuration file which looks like

Data Source="ServerName";Initial Catalog="DB";User Id="UID";pwd="PWD";Integrated Security= false;Persist Security Info=True;

 

I am accessing the above connection string in the script task. But the conection string comes without the password and it says login failed for the user. I am unable to get the password. 

 

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Unable to build connection string using Package Level variables from the AcquireConnection fonction

  
Hi all! In SSIS 2008, within a script component trying to refer to a package level variables that was added to the ReadOnlyVariables collection of the component, the following fails within the AcquireConnnection function and I get this error: Error 1 Validation error. Test1: Test1: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.ReadOnlyVariablesNotAvailableException: The collection of variables locked for read access is not available at this point.     à Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.ScriptComponentHost.HandleUserException(Exception e)     à Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.ScriptComponentHost.AcquireConnections(Object transaction)     à Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.ManagedComponentHost.HostAcquireConnections(IDTSManagedComponentWrapper100 wrapper, Object transaction)   string connectionString = "DSN=" + this.Variables.MYDSN; Conn = new OdbcConnection(connectionString); Conn.Open();     If I move the previous code in the PreExecute function, it runs fine though.   Then, if I move the connectionString variable to the class definition, and populate it from within the PreExecute function and leave the last 2 lines in the AcquireConnection function, I get the following error: Error 1 Validation error.

SSAS Deployment Wizard - Data Source connection string userid and Password getting removed

  

 

I have an SSAS database (Analysis Services 2005) which connects to Oracle for the data. I have the userid and password
saved in the connection string.

 

If I deploy the cube from Visual Studio I DON't have to manually edit the Data Source in the server to input the userid and password. The information is retained.

 

If I do a build and then deploy .asdatabase file using Deployment Wizard (Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Deployment.exe), the connection information dissappears. I have "Remove Passwords" = False in Project configuration. So when you build the project there will be a file with extension .assecurityinformation which holds the encrypted security info. Somehow

deployment wizard doesn't look at this file.

 

After the build I execute this command

Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Deployment.exe  .\Project.asdatabase /s:.\Deployment.log


I tried interactively and silent mode. Either way I cannot deploy the project with the userid and password in it.


Any clue?


[SOLVED] .Net 2 Service unable to access Connection String in Machine.config

  
I have a Windows Service I have developed in Visual Studio 2005 (C#).

It accesses a database using a connection string in machine.config.

On my Windows XP Pro 32bit (SP3) machine, it works correctly.

On my new Windows 7 Pro 64bit machine, it throws "object not set to an instance of an object" when it gets to the line where it's trying use the connection string.
This is the 'object' which is not set in Windows 7:
ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MyDatabase"].ConnectionString

 

The machine.config has the same connection string set up on both machines.

A .Net 2 website transferred to the Windows 7 machine has no problem accessing the same connection string.

I have tried a bunch of different permissions on the machine.config and its containing folders, and setting the service to log in as Admin, but I don't know exactly what permissions are required.

Does anyone know what's going on here? Many thanks.


SQL Connection String

  
We can learn or know how can we connect the database from our .net. This will help for freshers or .NET beginners!

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

  
ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

Let's abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

connection string question from a newbie

  

when publishing  in the webmatrix dialogue it asks for "destination connection string" for my "database.mdf"

I was not sure what it was so I pasted this from my web.config file :

Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True

it all published ok, but wont run, so I guess it has somthing to do with this connection string or some kind of configuration issue.

My question is this, What should go in the field for "Destination connection string"

Custom security via connection string

  
Hi Is it possible to pass information into the SQL Server relational engine via the connection string in the same way as it can be done for Analysis Services? I need to generate a user context for a forms authentication application (i.e. no windows user accounts). SSAS allows you to pass in a list of database roles or a customdata parameter on the connection string. These can be used inside the database in lieu of a windows identity. I am wondering if there are equivalent parameters available for the SQL connection string.  I guess that I could create SQL logins from each of the forms users with a system generated password and then pass the uid and password on the connection string but this seems unnecessarily complicated. Andrew Wiles - www.it-workplace.com - MDX made simple
