Clustering SSIS , that SSIS the question !!!

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I am pretty much confused as to what to do; According to MS http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms345193.aspx, the disadvantages in making SSIS cluster aware seem to be greater than the advantages; all I want to do is to be able to run my DTS packages every time the cluster fails over to the inactive node; what is the best and safest approach?

This is my current environment:

We are using SQL Server 2005, 64-bit, on a Windows 2003 clustered server with Active/Passive 'A' and 'B' nodes. Databases are on a shared equallogic iscsi SAN.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Text Search Strategy Question for the SSIS Gurus...

BACKGROUND: As I have mentioned in some of my other posts I am using SSIS 2005 to replace an existing MS Access 2003 / VBA based ETL engine which I developed some years back.   Part of my existing Access-based ETL performs a text search of the source records and I am now attempting to replicate that functionality in SSIS (replicate in terms of the end-result and not necessarily the methods used to get to that end result).  I have an idea of how I plan to go about this but since am relatively new to SSIS so would greatly appreciate the feedback of those more experienced... DETAILED DESCRIPTION: In the source (Sybase ASE15) database, there is an "object" table (not the actual table name but for illustrative purposes it will suffice).  Within the object table there is a "description" column which is a char(60) datatype.  The description column simply represents a description of the object as defined by the source system end-user. For my ETL solution I allow the ETL administrator to define one or many (1...n) key words or phrases which represent search criteria.  These search criteria are stored in a reference table in my target SQL Server 2005 database (the same database to which my ETL will transform results and store them).  My objective, is as follows:  For each of the 1...n search criteria defined, try and find th

SSIS question

I have a filename variable and I want to load that variable into a SQL table. Can I use a execute SQL task for doing that? If so any ideas as to how it can be done. Thanks.sqldev

Another dynamic SSIS question


I'm seeking just a simple yes or now as to whether this can be done, and if so - a gentle nudge as to what approach to take.

The business problem is that our organization has used SQL Server as the data warehouse after a pretty intense ETL process that runs overnight. We recently acquired a Netezza appliance to interfact with Siebel (or Oracle BI), and I'm trying to create a process by which there nightly copies of the DW database in SQL Server over to Netezza.  All of this is simple to manually, but the requirements call me for me to create a metadata table of tables that are to be included in nightly and intra-day hourly updates.  This metadata table has the name of each table, the key data field for gettin recent transactions from Fact tables for hourly updates.

Based on input from our Netezza advisor, Netezza can handle up to six syncronous packages running at at a time.  For each scheduled task, the package would look at the metadata table for a list of tables, and use sys.all_columns to build up the package details.  Fortunately, the name of the tables and fields are identitcal from SQL Server to Netezza, and I've created a .Net page that allows developers to specify new tables they've created and the corresponding key date field that creates the Netezza DDL language to create the table and make data type translations.

Data Flows in SSIS - Mapping Multiple source tables to Destination table **Newb question**

Hi I am new to SSIS and had a basic question. I have around 30+ tables in a db that needs to be migrated to a newer schema in the DB. The data flow task seems to be ideally suited for my requirement. My question is do I need to create 30+ different data flow tasks for this which will get executed one after the other or is there a better way to migrate large number of tables. Also how are referential constraints taken care of during such migration. Thanks and Regards, Ganesh Ranganathan

SSIS - Passing a date parameter to a SQL Query question again....


I need to pass a date string to my sqlcommand inside of my "datareader source".  I read some of the questions about setting expression variables but I can't seem to figure out how to do it.  I pasted the query below.  The table name contains a date in it so I need to pass that date as a string into my sqlcommand at runtime.  Do I create a variable with the entire SQL command in it or can I just create a single variable that holds the date and just reference that in my datasource reader sqlcommand property?  Can someone assist me with the syntax for creating the expression?

     pages_20101006.`date` AS full_date,
     pages_20101006.`cat` AS category_no,

Thanks very much,



Question on Ole db destination provider - SSIS


Hello there

I have a package that imports data from a file to a SQL Server destination. My file has duplicate rows on the primary key column. This will cause the package to fail, since the table will not allow insertion of duplicate primary keys. I use ole db destination task . To this task, i have set error redirection so that any error that causes the rows that can cause error to be redirected. I am facing a different problem due to this property, i have set my ole db destination -- data access as table or view - fast load. If i run the package, all my rows fail insertion into my table and get redirected to my error output file. However if i change my data access mode -- table or view, this package runs and only the duplicate row gets redirected to the error file.

I am not very clear with this scenario. Can anyone please advise?. Since the input data is very high -- more than 5 million rows. The table or view data access mode will make the data insert very slow.

Please correct me if there is anything wrong,.

Using Conditional Split data Transfer in SSIS 2008

This article uses the Integration Services Conditional Split Data Transformation element to filter and transfer data from a set of flat text files to SQL Server database table. The concept can be easily extended to apply to any other source or destination such as Microsoft Excel. This scenario is useful in creating denormalized database tables in a reporting and analysis situation.

using SharePoint List for SSIS package

Migrate DB + files outside DB into SharePoint using SSIS and scripts


Hello, just wanted to ask a question about SSIS and SharePoint, any input will be greatly appreciated.... did search the forum but could not find anything....

So basically we have a SQL Server DB with the metadata ONLY, WITHOUT the related files(doc/ppt/pdf..etc) which should've been in the DB and they are on a separate web server inside folders. Each row in the DB has a key (column) which matches the related folder's name, so for row with ID #112, there's a folder named ID112 on the web server with the relevant files inside. There could be more than 8+ files for one folder.  

Now, I think it is possible but just wanted to double check, would it be possible to use SSIS and some kind of a script to get the metadata inside the SQL DB AND the related files inside those folders, combine & relate them and upload them into SharePoint as a custom list with file attachments? would they display the attachment normally (like the paperclip icon in a sharepoint list...etc) I wonder if anyone has tried this...

Any guidance, thoughts, suggestions for other solutions, inputs will be great!!! Thank you!!

SSIS Package Transaction locks entire table

Hello, I have SSIS package that using transactions and working as expected. But this locks all the tables involved in the data flow that are get inserted/loaded. If I query those tables during package execution the query waits till SSIS releases the lock. But I can still query those tables using NOLOCK hint. Is this possible SSIS will lock only the rows that it insert/update/delete etc? So that other user can still use that table or another instance of same SSIS Package can load data into those tables? My Package: In the package level I have TransactionOption = Required. The Sequence (Data Flow is inside this sequence) TransactionOption = Supported. I had some issue in my package that I posted here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlintegrationservices/thread/dfb5a8b9-d43c-452b-bb21-d6aea192fc97 and also resolved. Now I descovered this issue and trying to resolve. Thanks, Prabhat

Execute SSIS Package PART based on Some Condition

Hello, Is it possible to execute part of the Package based some condition? (Like If var1 = true, then execute this block). If Yes, what control flow I should use. Please advse. I will have a Package Variable and if that variable is True then some part should execute. REst all should execute every time the package is called. Like if I will have "2 Sequence Container" in my control flow, the first one should execute every time, but 2nd one only if the variable value = True. Thanks, Prabhat
