One SSIS package - multiple configurations?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
I'm looking for a basic guideline/best practices for creating an SSIS setup involving one "master" package called with one variable that will link it to a set of configurations based on that variable. Currently we create a new package for each client, each with their own configuration. Now each package is basically the same but we create an entirely new package file for each customer. There are variables that are of the YES/NO variety to enable/disable specific functions based on client need. As it is now, if we improve the package (a new version if you will) we have to go back to all prior packages to update and make the adjustment. These can be anything from a small SQL code change to an entirely new container of tasks. Either way, you get the idea, this is very inefficient and I am attempting to standardize our packages and process. If anyone could post a few links or point me in the right direction it would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Deploying SSIS Package configurations in production and development


I'm working on a SSIS package which I want to deploy onto our development environment on a daily basis as I work on it. In addition, I want it to be easy to deploy to production. We're using xml configuration files for our packages, but I haven't seen anyone discuss the entire development process.

Do people keep their production and development configuration files in source control? If so, how? Are they part of your BIDS SSIS project? I tried adding them to "Miscellaneous". i.e. Example:

I have a project with the following SSIS Packages in it:




In the Miscellaneous folder I have:






I did this so I can keep them in source control. We don't use package deployment utilities, we just deploy by hand, but putting the files in Miscellaneous breaks the building of the deployment utilities because it attempts to copy the config files into the Deployment directory twice.


In addition, I set up the package configurations such that the

Run a package for multiple servers (configurations)


I have a package that collects information from an SQL Server about the databases on that server. I store this information in a table from where I can create graphs (for example the disk usage, etc.). Now I would like to run this package for about 20 servers. The only difference in the package is the connection of the source DB. What would be the easiest way to do this:

1. Build a loop in the package that runs 20 times and putting the server name in a variable

2. Set package configurations that it runs 20 times with every time a different value for the server of the read db component (is that even possible??)

3. Another option that I don't know of yet?

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

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

SSIS package Scheduled Job Not Running

I'm not sure which way to research this issue.. I have an SSIS package that we can run just fine manually. But, when we put it into a scheduled job, it won't run. The package is on the same system as the SQL Server (2005), but it does call for updates from tables on another SQL Server (2000) on another domain (trusted). So, I'm thinking this might be a permissions / security issue, but not sure where to start... The package ProtectionLevel is "don't save sensitive", but that didn't help. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. jill

help regarding SSIS package!

Hi Everyone,, I am pretty much new to SSIS. Any help regarding this project would be appreciate it. I need to transfer data from the files into a Database. I need to use FTP to copy those files locally on a machine and then combine/merge those files  and then read the data from those files and copy the values into the database. I have atleast 5-6 files which I need to combine or read them individually to form a single row in the database. (I am not sure if merging into single file or reading as each indivial file is faster!) Those files are in report formats and can be opened like notepad. There is Ton of data in each file and some filtering is required before I insert a single record into the DB. I just started learing the SSIS package, i am not really sure how I can do it.Any help or sample code or screen shots would be really appreciated!! Thanks Sunny.
