How do I set the SSIS SQL Server configuration at run time?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

I've developed an SQL 2008 SSIS package that needs to run under several different configurations.  The selected configuration must be set at run time.  I'm using SQL Server to store the configurations.  Due to security restrictions and multiuser considerations, I cannot use indirect configuration selection via an environment variable.  In the dtexec command line I’ve tried using several variations of /Set \package.configurations[Configuration1].properties[ConfigurationFilter].value;DL1 without success.  Is there a way to set the Configuration Filter property from the dtexec command line?  What is the proper syntax?

SSIS Package retains designer setting, not Using Configuration From SQL Server Table.


Hello all,

I am using package configurations to set SSIS package variables from the SQL server Database [SSIS Configurations] table.   I have an environment variable set as my first configuration, to hold my database connection, and then the subsequent configurations are SQL configuration entries and held in the [SSIS Configurations] table.

When testing in BIDs, the connection is OK and the designer shows the correct values have been picked up.  All good!

But, when we change the database value in the [SSIS Configurations] table, the old configuration is still being used in BIDs.

I have checked using Profiler that BIDS is calling and retrieving the correct value from the table but the modified value is not being used in BIDs, instead it is retaining the old value when the package was designed.

How do I force the SSIS package to use the configuration specified in the SQL table?

Thanks, Helen


Essential SQL Server Date, Time and DateTime Functions

The essential date and time functions that every SQL Server database should have to ensure that you can easily manipulate dates and times without the need for any formatting considerations at all.

Date/Time Conversions Using SQL Server

There are many instances when dates and times don't show up at your doorstep in the format you'd like it to be, nor does the output of a query fit the needs of the people viewing it. One option is to format the data in the application itself. Another option is to use the built-in functions SQL Server provides to format the date string for you.

Test Run: Configuration Testing With Virtual Server, Part 2


Because Virtual Server is built upon a set of COM modules, you can automate the creation and testing of virtual machines. Here we use Windows PowerShell to run the tests.

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.

Does SQL Server have to load and init statics every time a SQL/CLR managed proc is invoked?

We are working with SQL/CLR stored procedures, triggers etc and it seems that all assemblies we use are unloaded/loaded every time a proc or trigger or TVF is called. Is this true? Is there any way to retain data between invocations of procs? for example can I create some static struct or object that I can setup once and then just refer to after that, so that unless we terminate SQL server, the static data is always in memory? Thanks PS: This was originally posted here, but that forum seems to be rarely frequented.

SQL Server Configuration Manager: Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion

I have a SQL Server 2005 box that was moved from a domain environment to a non-domain environment and was never dropped from its original domain before moving over.  Subsequently a new domain was created at the data center this SQL Server box now resides in.  The machine was dropped from its old domain and joined to the new one.   All the while the service accounts were set to the local admin account.  When I tried to start the Configuration Manager I got the message "Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion.".  I read some blog entries and tried changing all the service accounts to Local System and the error message still came up.   All of the SQL Server services run fine.  It is just this management console that I cannot open.  I wasn't with this employer when this box was moved to the data center so I do not know if it worked prior and there isn't anyone here that could give me its history.   Any help would be appreciated.

WCF - First call to Callback instance from Server takes considerable time to make it to the client.

Hello. There's a performance problem we are facing that we are unable to fix using DuplexChannels. The first call made by the client to the server reaches the server instantly. The first call made by the server to the first client using a Callback proxy will take several seconds to reach the client. All subsequent calls to the client (as well as other clients) will reach and execute instantly. The client connects to the Server using a proxy to IServiceProvision, supplies an instance to an implementation of IClientCallback and calls IServiceProvision.Start(). The server instantly processes the call and makes an asynchronous call to IClientCallback.DoWork(), which takes several seconds to enter the client's DoWork() implementation. The remainder of the execution then runs smoothly. Also, the server will experience such a slowdown only for the very first call of the first client that connects to it. Is it normal for the Callback interface to take so much time to warmup, only on the first call to the first client? Below is the full source code. Thanks for any information you may provide. Cheers Mike Shared Class Library using System.ServiceModel; namespace Test { [ServiceContract(Namespace = "http://test/IService", CallbackContract = typeof(IClientCallback))] public interface IServiceProvision { [OperationContract] void Start(); [OperationContract] void

Post Upgade task, Upgrading SSIS Pacakges to SQL Server 2008.

Hi, I am trying to upgrade sql 2005 packages to sql 2008 after doing in-place upgrade of DE and SSIS. Can I know what packageformat column in msdb.dbo.sysssispackages refer to, as according to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc879336.aspx the value should be 2 if the package is in sql 2005 and it should be 3 if it is upgraded. But I am seeing only 0 or 1.   Can I know any other method to figure out version of the ssis packages? I am having issues upgrading SSIS Packages from 2005 to 2008, using SSIS package upgrade wizard.   Thanks for your help. Regards, KRanp.

SSIS Deployment Reads local Environment Variable and not Server

Hi All, I have an SSIS package that uses an Environment variable to hold the connection string for the local SSISConfiguration table.  This works properly on my local machine.  However, when I import the package to Integration Services(through SSMS) it reads the environment variable from the local machine and not the server it is deployed to.  If I log on to the server remotely and do the same process it uses the the correct environment varible... (SQL Server 2005) Is there a way to deploy the package to the server and get it to use the correct Env variable without having to log-in to the server and import it?  Let me know if anyone is looking for additional information.   Thanks!

SQL Server Configuration Manager - Protocol Name is blank

When I run SQL Server Configuration Manager (2008) and click on SQL Server Network Configuration and then Protocols for SQL, the right side of the screen shows the protocol icons and their status, but the names (TCP/IP, Shared Memory, Named Pipes, etc) are not there. Can someone tell me how to get the names to display again? They used to show up. A thought is that I installed XP SP3 and that made them go away, but I can't prove that.

SQL server memory / speed configuration

Let me preface this by saying I'm aware of SQL server memory architecture, i.e it takes as much as it can get it's hand's on ...I've read through all the post's on here and they have been very helpful ... However if someone could take a look at these these configuration values ... I'm trying to get a new server dialed in, I'm still having some user end speed issues, and application hangup's that seem sql related ... I'm by no means a dba so if someone who's knowledgeable could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it ... I feel like something is not configured properly ... The box has Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (RTM) 64-bit on Windows NT 6.0 <X64> Service Pack 2 Dell Power Edge R10 16 Logical CPU, 8 Hyperthread 12gig of memory (Right now SQL has 10/12 gig allocated in the task manager ( I know this is not accurate ) I'm adding another 12 gig tomorrow ... So the machine will be running 24 gig) There's two 9 gig databases running on the machine with several 4-6 million row tables .... Server is SQL Dedicated Configuration Values   Page Life Expectancy 18,038 under moderate load, tho I've seen it as low as 1,200 under heavy load ....

SSIS Finishes earlier than SQL Server

I'm validating all of the facts in our Data warehouse after all packages are finished. In a separate package I query the Source and DWH and compare the results to eachother. This check does work for all of the facts accept for the last one loaded. It seems like SSIS is reporting the package to be finished, but SQL Server is still busy updating the table, so when I query the DWH at that time I do not get a full result. This only happens when packages are ran by the SQL Server Agent. When running SSIS in Debug mode I don't have this problem (probably beacause it is so much slower). Is there a way to solve this? (Other then scheduling the check at a later time?) Thnaks in advance!
