SSIS Connection Failure in SSMS

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

In SSMS when I connect to SSIS it seems to work. When I try to expand teh MSDB folder under Stored Packages, I get a login failed message with some verbiage about the instance either being non-existent or not available. There are two instances installed on this machine - a default instance and a named instance. The MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml config file has "." for the server. I have tried the server name and IP address in this config all to no avail. Any ideas why this is happening?

Can not get excel connection when calling an SSIS package from ASP

I have an SSIS package importing data from excel. I have coded it and deployed it on the sql 2008 server. I then execute it via a stored procedure with the following: select @cmd = 'C:\"Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn\DTExec.exe" /sq "HRIS"' select   @cmd = @cmd + ' /SET \Package.Variables[User::path].Properties[Value];"' + @path + '"' exec   @rtn = master..xp_cmdshell @cmd   This works fine when  i execute it on my local machine. But when I try to call this Stored proc from my asp app (classic asp, not .net) I get the error: Code: 0xC0202009 Source: HRIS Connection manager "SourceConnectionExcel" Description: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR.

SSIS Connection Configuration

Hello,   I have a bunch of packages that use different connections. I would like to put all these connections in the a sql config file and use only the needed connections for that package when executing. Right now when I run a package that doesn't use all the connections in the config table I get errors for all the other connections.   I would like to keep all the connections in one table for easy management, is this possible and even if the package does not use all the connections.   THanks, J

SSIS Excel Connection Manager Data Type Conversion Issues with SS Agent Job

Hi All! I have an issue I've been trying to fix but can't seem to figure it out. I was hoping a kind person would point me in the right direction. :o) I have an SSIS package that uses an excel connection manager source, and I want to run this package through a job scheduled in the SQL server agent. The data types for the excel file fields are 2 (DT_WSTR) and 5 (DT_R8). When I run the package directly through the SSIS package (VS solution) all of the data fields are properly imported into the database table. But...when I run this package through the SQL server agent job, ONLY the string (DT_WSTR) fields in each row are being imported, all of the float fields are imported as NULL. I set the data types for these float fields as "float" in the SQL server import table (data type). Even though the excel source float fields are indicating a type of DT_R8 in the excel connection manager and I set the data types in the SQL server table to "float", I also used the data conversion component and set the type to "float" as a fail-safe. I guess I should add to that the data access mode in the excel connection manager is using a custom code to select only those columns that I needed and to trim rows that I didn't need. Here's my code that I have in the excel source editor: select f1, f2, f3, f5, f6, f7, f8 from [mdo$] where f2 <> 'Rep Name'

SSIS Enpoint failure

Hello All,   I'm getting an error that states "Could not find endpoint element with name 'BAReachServiceEndpoint1' and contract 'BAService.IBAService' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this name could be found in the client element." I have an SSIS package using a DataFlow task.  Inside that data flow task, is a Script Component as the Source.  It will call a client's API. The app.config is as follows: <?xml version="1.0"?> <configuration> <configSections> </configSections> <startup><supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/></startup><system.serviceModel> <bindings> <wsHttpBinding> <binding name="BAReachServiceEndpoint1" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" transactionFlow="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard" maxBufferPoolSize="524288" maxReceivedMessageSize="65536" messageEncoding="Text" textEncoding="utf-8" useDefaultWebProxy="true" allowCo

SSIS Send Mail Task - Failure Sending Mail

Hi Everyone, Hopefully someone out there will have an idea as this is driving me nuts. I've setup a task to email on success/failure and keep receiving the following message when executed: Progress: The SendMail task is initiated. - 0 percent complete[Send Mail Task] Error: An error occurred with the following error message: "Failure sending mail.". Progress: The SendMail task is completed. - 100 percent completeTask Send Mail Task failed When I configure Outlook Express on the same machine with the same settings it works. On the SMTP Connection Manager I have left the default name, tested with both an IP address and Server Name, and no authentication or SSL. On the Send Mail Task, it uses the above connection. The To: , From: , Subject  fields are populated. Message SourceType is DirectInput, MessageSource is Test, Priority is Normal and no attachments or expressions etc. Nothing useful is logged in the Event Viewer even with full logging turned on. Any suggestions appreciated, Thanks.

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 2008 - Excel Source using SQL Connection cancels as soon as package runs.

Let me preface this by saying I'm brand-new to SSIS development. I'm using 64-bit SSIS 2008 and I'm trying to read an Excel spreadsheet using OLE DB. I've already run into and corrected the Run64BitRuntime problem.  Now when I invoke the Package it cancels immediately with the following output: SSIS package "Lesson1X.dtsx" starting. Information: 0x4004300A at Data Flow Task, SSIS.Pipeline: Validation phase is beginning. SSIS package "Lesson1X.dtsx" finished: Canceled. The program '[5400] Lesson1X.dtsx: DTS' has exited with code 0 (0x0). When I edit the Excel Source component itself there are no errors and I am able to Preview the results successfully.  If I use Table or View to access the file, the package runs successfully. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

An error occurred within the report server database. This may be due to a connection failure, timeo



I can't get Reporting Services to work with Sharepoint.

I've followed the instructions for installation of Reporting Service in SharePoint Integrated Mode, and completed the indicated steps on the SharePoint Central Administration Site successfully.  When I try to create a page with a Reporting Services Webpart, I get the following error:


Invalid object name 'History'.
An error occurred within the report server database.  This may be due to a connection failure, timeout or low disk condition within the database. (rsReportServerDatabaseError)


I have SQL 2008 R2, SharePoint Enterprise 2010, and Report Builder 3.0.  SQL and Sharepoint are installed on the same server.

I'm certain that there isn't a disk or timeout problem, so I'm assuming that it's a connection failure, but don't know what steps to take to troubleshoot and correct this.

Iam having problem connecting with Sybase from SSIS or Link Server of SQL Server 2008.

 We are also able to create System DSN from ODBC Administrator in Windows 7. I am also able to import data in the MS Access. Here is the System DSN I created, successfully.

 I would really appreciate you can help us out.

Programmatic SSIS: reading Connection Type Specific Connection Manager properties



I'm trying to read Connection Manager properties, but am stumbling when trying to access anything  beyond the generic ConnectionManager objects. In it's stripped down format the code i'm using to read a Property is this:

string InputProperty = string.Empty;

PropertyInfo PropInfo = null;     // Uses System.Reflection to get property info

foreach (ConnectionManager v in package.Connections)


	PropInfo = typeof(ConnectionManager).GetProperty(InputProperty);



However if i'm trying to read an input property that's specific to a type of connection manager, e.g. Flat File Connection manager property HeaderRowsToSkip, the above code fails as the ConnectionManager object only serves up a few generic properties.

Now, I assume that I need to cast or similar to get the IDTSConnectionManagerFlatFile Connection type...  but at this point I get lost. Can anybody give me a helpful pointer?

Cheers, James

SSIS Dynamic Connection Provider



I am working on SSIS 2008. My requirement is that I need to connect to SQL Server or Oracle datbase in lookup, but I will get to know this at runtime whether its SQL Server or Oracle. So one option is to create separate connection for each and use separate lookups. But my question is can I use only one connection and one lookup and achieve this? I short can I can change oledb connection provider at runtime?




SQL Server/Access ADP connection failure

Hi All,

I have successfully installed SQL Server 2008 Express on my stand-alone Windows 7 pc.  I've logged on to it, created databases, tables, etc. and have successfully linked to an Access 2007 database by specifying the machine source as SQL Server (ODBC).

I am planning to employ ADP instead of linking the tables to Access.  Per instructions I created an ADP database and when given the choice 'Do you want to connect to an existing SQL Server database?' I choose 'Yes'.

On the Data Link Properties screen, server name field (my SQL Server name doesn't appear in the drop down) I key 'HP\SQLExpress'. After selecting 'NT' security I try to select the database on the server whereupon I get: 'Specified server not found'.

When I log on to SQL Server management studio I use 'HP\SQLExpress'. So why doesn't it find it on the Data Link Properties screen?
