SQL SERVER PACKAGES - Protecting Information

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I am currently writing specific queries to extract data from one server to another and save these packages. These packages i use then to schedule jobs that gets executed every 3 hours to update date.

I would like to protect my intelectual property and query so that a third party can't copy the work i have done etc. How to i enable this, as i see that the various protection's thats available rely on password, but that prohibets me then from scheduling it without using the password?

Please assist.

SQL Server: Build Apps that Provide Real-Time Information and Customized Content Using SQL Server No


The adoption of wireless devices continues to spread unabated, and organizations are looking for new ways to get in touch with customers through these new mobile devices. In the past, unsuccessful ideas such as push technology were used to send targeted information to customers. Now, SQL Server Notification Services uses the SQL Server 2000 database engine and the .NET Framework to promote a new breed of notification applications that will allow relevant, consensual communications to be sent to any subscriber device.Here the author provides an architectural overview of the core features that make up SQL Server Notification Services. Along the way he discusses how they can be used for pushing Web content.

How to get configuration information in side server-side code

I'm relatively new to writing code for sharepoint 2010, and one thing I'm curious about is how/where can I store configuration information, so that if I code on 1 platform and push to another, how do I keep things like the weburl, sites, lists, etc in a config file?  Is there a standard config file to use, or would it always be the web.config for the entire system? Specifically, if i start up code, how can I find a) what is the current weburl I'm on, b) what site/sitecollection, and c) a list of all lists? thanks  Rocky Sanders

SharePoint 2007 + PowerPoint gives "Contacting the server for information" for a long time

I've never had this issue for but today all of a sudden I tried to open a PowerPoint document posted to a document library on our SharePoint 2007 site and it gave a message saying "Contacting the server for information" for a long time.  It eventually opened but not until after 5-10 minutes.  Does anyone know what might have caused this?  The file itself is pretty small, only 70KB, and as I said we haven't had this problem before.

Need Information on pulling data from Oracle Source to SQL Server

Hi,   I was told that we will be extracting data from Oracle database and loading into SQL Server Database. I will be developing packages on the Remote Server where SQL Server is installed. I mean I wont be developing anything on my local machine. This is the first time I will be writing a package to extract data from Oracle database and my knowledge on Oracle is zero.   Could someone list out  what all I need to do to extract data from Oracle database ?  Server that I will be working is new and nothing is installed on that except the SQL Server 2008.      

Folders or folder like equivalent in SQL Server 2008 ? for packages & stored procedures ?

Hi,      Currently running SQL-Server 2000.  We have hundreds of stored procedures and DTS packages. We have so many it's becoming a serious challenge for names and such.  We were wondering if SQL Server 2008 has a way to 'nest' both the equivalent of DTS packages (SSIS) and stored procedures in something akin to 'folders'.  We know we have to upgrade one of these days but a version that would handle these would be much more attractive. Just getting this functionality would be worth whatever effort would be required to upgrade.   Thanks in advance for any help on this.

SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager no longer displays DTS packages

SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager no longer displays DTS packages and the SQL Server Agent jobs that use the DTS packages now fail. The affected servers are running Windows Server 2003 SP2 and SQL Server 2000 SP4 and all update patches for both the OS and SQL Server. The DTS packages are ActiveX scripts that read data from a database table and output that data to a text file on the same server.  They include the database connection string and the SQL account used by the connection string has not changed. I've determined that the DTS packages still exist by trying to re-create them with the same name, but they don't appear in the Local Packages window and they no longer function when the scheduled job that uses then runs. The SQL Server Agent Job error is as follows: Executed as user: <server admin user account>. DTSRun: Loading... Error: -2147467259 (80004005); Provider Error: 11 (B) Error string: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionRead (recv()).] General network error. Check you network documentation. Error source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server Help file: Help context 0. Process Exit Code 1. The step failed. The job has working perfectly for the last 5 years, until about a week ago when it started failing. I have two other servers with the exact same configuration running the same DTS packages and job that still work and the DTS packages show up in Enterprise

Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Packages


I see empty folders inside Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Packages. The folders must have been created with the creation of the packages , since the names of the folders are same as that of the packages. They are empty so I did not understand the significance of these folders ?

Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005 SSIS packages


My home machine has sql 2005  and Visual Studio 2005 installed. I uninstalled VS 2005 (RTM) and installed VS 2008 (RTM) in its place. I then found that the SSIS templates were missing. Lesson: don't uninstall VS 2005 if you want to use SSIS 2005!


1. Is there any "workaround" to this issue?


2. (If the answer to 1 is "No") I will install VS 2008 side-by-side with VS 2005 on the same box.  When the SSIS issue is finally resolved, can I uninstall VS 2005 without doing damage to the VS 2008 install?










Restoring a content database from another server/AD does not synch user profile information for new


In my SharePoint 2010 beta environment, I have user profiles synching with Active Directory.  I just restored a content database from a separate environment/domain and logged in with my current account.  When I try to create an alert on a library/item, I get the error:

“You do not have an e-mail address.  Alert has been created successfully but you will not receive notifications until valid e-mail or mobile address has been provided in your profile.”

I went to My Profile and found that the My Profile had the right e-mail address (I guess because this is on my My Site Host).

But when I went to My Settings, it did not have any e-mail address for me (I guess this is because it is at the WSS content database level and the e-mail address hasn’t yet synched from the user profile database).

Does anyone the timer job that synchs the user profile with the My Settings for a site collection in a content database?

Issue is posted to my blog with screenshots here:



Save output tab/window information for debugging project compilation on server


Below is an example of when I run my VB.net project in VS2008, i have an "Output" tab at the bottom that shows some detailed information on what is going on.  My application builds & runs in debug within seconds, but on the server the very first load most mornings takes about 3 minutes.  I'd like to save this "Output" tab information to a text file so that when it runs on the actual server, i can see whats going on.  Maybe even add timestamps to it as well. Could someone please explain how to do this?  Thank you!
