SQL Server 2008 :: SSIS Copy File From SharePoint Library Using File System Task Permissions?
Jun 19, 2015
Historically I've always written a VB script to copy a file from a sharepoint library. I don't like this method because I have to input a username & password in the script and maintain a config file.
Yesterday I was playing around with using a file system task. The sharepoint file has a UNC path so why not? I created a simple test package with a single file system task that copies the sharepoint file (addressed via UNC) to another network location. Package runs fine locally.
I try running on our utility server but am getting a "The file name [SHAREPOINT UNC PATH] specified in the connection was not valid" error. Package is running with a proxy on the server and the proxy account has the same permissions to the sharepoint site (so far as I can tell) as me.
I am copying data from database to an excel file through SSIS. database is MS SQL 2005 and BIDS is also 2005.However, the job doing this task fails every time.As per investigation, the result of the query is more than 100,000 rows and we know that excel has a limit of 65000 rows of data.Is there a way of setting the limit up? or something? a better approach maybe so that everything will be copied to the excel file successfully.
The PrimeOutput method on component "Source - Query" (1) returned error code 0xC02020C4. The component returned a failure code when the pipeline engine called PrimeOutput(). The meaning of the failure code is defined by the component, but the error is fatal and the pipeline stopped executing. There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure. End Error Error: 2015-10-22 04:34:58.05 Code: 0xC0047021
Source: Data Flow Task Description: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_THREADFAILED.
Thread "SourceThread0" has exited with error code 0xC0047038. There may be error messages posted before this with more information on why the thread has exited. End Error DTExec: The package execution returned DTSER_FAILURE (1). Started: 4:30:00 AM Finished: 4:35:05 AM Elapsed: 304.844 seconds. The package execution failed. The step failed. "
I'm trying to call WinSCP in a SSIS Execute Process Task using a .bat file to automate. SSIS is returning a generic failure error message ("Error: 0xC0029151 at Execute Process Task, Execute Process Task: In Executing "MyServerC$Program Files (x86)WinSCPWinSCP.exe" "-script=MyNASShareWinSCPFTP.bat " at "", The process exit code was "1" while the expected was "0"."). So now I'm trying to run the .bat file by itself. Unfortunately, the command prompt rushes by so fast that I can't see what the server is doing.
I can't find anything on the WinSCP site that indicates how to slow down the .bat file processing or log the remote server responses. I do see how to use the /log switch when using the interactive command line console, but that's not what I want to do.
I have a package which is creating a excel file 'ExcelName.xls' and storing in 'E:ReportingDelivered_Reports'. Now I have to attach this report using send mail task and send it to given mail id. To achieve this I have configured the send mail task and in Expression Builder, I have selected the below expression:
I am able to run SSIS packages as SQL Server Agent jobs with a Control Flow items "File system task", if I move a file (test.txt) from a drive (c on the server (where SQL Agent jobs run) to a subdirectory on the same drive. But, if I try to move a file on a network drive, the package fail.
I need to move files from one location to another location and rename the file using File System Task in SSIS.. There are curent file and archived files in the folder ( C:donwload) and i need to grap only current file ( i.e Zipcode062407) and move to C:staging folder and rename it to currentzipcode.txt how can i grap only current file and move it to the different folder and rename the file using File System Task in SSIS?
I'm having an issue with a file system task & I'm not sure whether it is user error on my part or a bug. I'm using a SQL Task to create a transaction log backup & I'm saving the name of the file in a result set which I then am mapping to a package level user variable. After that runs I'm trying to copy this .BAK file to another folder using the file system task. I'm setting the following properties on the file system task.
Then I have entered the static directory for the file move.
Operation: Tried it with both copy file & move file.
After setting this I immediately get a validation warning telling me the source directory cannot be empty. If I try to run it, it fails. The weird thing is that if I set up a connection manager to a flat file & pass my user variable in as the connection string to this connection. Then set the Issourcepathvariable to false & the Sourceconnection to this connection manager it works.
I also have gotten it to work by substituting an ftp task in place of the file system task. The ftp task has no problem when I set the Islocalpathvariable to true & then pass my variable to Localvariable property. This is why I believe there is some sort of issue with the file system task. Has anyone seen this before? Is there some sort of problem with the way I'm setting it up?
Wanting to use File System Task in SSIS to move files from one location to another for archiving. I can't seem to figure out how to use a wild card for the file name. It seems that I must specify the actual file name which is a problem because only the first 4 letters in the file name remain a constant.
Does anyone know how to use a wild card or a way to work this in?
I have just loaded SQL Server 2005 SP1 and it is playing havoc with any SSIS packages that use the File System Task.
I am using the FST to copy a file to a directory after it has been loaded. This worked fine prior to SQ1 but now I am getting the following error if there are one or more files already in the target directory:
[File System Task] Error: An error occurred with the following error message: "The directory is not empty. ".
If I remove all files from the directory it works fine.
Has anyone come across this problem and got a workaround for this? Will it involve me writing a FSO script task???
I have an excel file that is stored in a sharepoint document library. I am trying to use SSIS to import it into a SQL database. I use the excel connection manager with a sharepoint UNC path. When I run it from BIDS, it runs successfully. When I run it from a job, I get an error
"It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view and write its data"
It is definitely not open by anyone else, and I have full permissions to the file. ALSO, the SQL Agent and Service acct which the job runs under, has full permissions to the file. I have tried running it under a proxy account with my user account, but it fails with the same message. Further, I can run a DIR command from a command prompt to list the sharepoint directory contents successfully, but when I run the same command from SSMS using xp_cmdshell, it fails with access denied. Again, the SQL Service acct has full rights to the sharepoint site.
I notice when i browse to the sharepoint document library and try to open the folder with "Open with Windows Explorer", it always asks me to login and I'm thinking that is related to the problem I am having - that it doesn't automatically pick up the windows authentication.
Does anyone know how to do this using variables? Everytime I try it, I get the
Error: Failed to lock variable for read access with error 0xc00100001.
I also tried it writing a script and still the same error. If I hard code the values into the variables it works fine but I will be running this everday so that it will pull in the current date along with the filename. So the value of the variables will change everyday. Here is my expression:
I was wondering if there is a way to 'Move File' with the File System Task inside of a For Each Loop container but to dynamically set the Destination path variable.
Currently, this is what I have: FileDestinationPath variable - set to C:TestFiles FileSourcePath variable - set to C:TestFiles FileNameAndLocation variable - set to blank
For Each Loop Container €“ Iterates through a folder C:TestFiles that has .txt files in it with dates in the file name. Ex: Test_09142006.txt. Sets the file path (fully qualified) to the Variable Mapping FileNameAndLocation.
Script Task (within For Each Loop, first step) €“ Sets the FileDestinationPath to the correct dated folder within C:TestFiles. For example, if the text files I want to move are for the 14th of September, it takes FileDestinationPath and appends the date folder to the end of it. The text files have a date in the file name (test_09142006.txt) and I am picking this apart (from FileNameAndLocation in the For Each Loop) to get the folder date. (dts.Variables(€śUser::FileDestinationPath€?).Value = dts.Variables(€śUser::FileDestinationPath€?).Value & €ś€? Month & €ś_€? & Day & €ś_€? & Year & €ś€?) which gives me €śC:TestFiles 9_14_2006€?.
File System Task (within For Each Loop, second step) €“ This is where the action is supposed to occur. I want it to take the FileDestinationPath and move the FileNameAndLocation file (from the For Loop) into this folder for each run.
Now as for my problem. I want this package to run everyday but it has to set the FileDestinationPath variable dynamically according to that day€™s date. Basically, how do I get this to work since I can€™t hard code the destination path variable from the start? I have the DestinationVariable on the File System Task set to the FileDestinationPath variable, after the script task builds it. However, using FileNameAndLocation as the SourceVariable on my File System Task tells me that the €śVariable €śFileNameAndLocation€? is used as a source or destination and is empty.€?
Let me know if I need to clarify further€¦...I may be missing something very simple. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I have a source files folder where the files generated everyday. My goal is pick the latest file and copy this single file to another folder. I used the Foreach loop container and got the latest file and stored the file name to a varible i.e. LatestFile Then i want to use the File System Task to copy this to the destination. On the beginning, I could not setup the Latestfile since I don't its name then, so when I setup the Source Connection property of the File system task, it is not allowed to leave the SourceVarible as blank!
I have a for each file loop and inside it a data flow that pulls from one of the flat files in the directory and then a file system task. If I choose the "Move File" option in the file system task to move the file to the archive directory, it fails with an access denied message. The access denied message occurs after a message saying file was successfully deleted. I am running this from BIDS right now and my local user can write delete etc in both the above directories. However, if I do a "copy file" in the file system task it seems to work. I think what is happening is it is deleting the file first and then trying to move it, but it no longer exists because it has been deleted--is this possible? Is this a bug of some sort?
For now I am going to workaround by putting in another file system task that deletes the files after they were copied and see how that goes, but would prefer just to do the "move" option.
I'm having trouble working this out in SSIS. I am trying to use a File System task to rename a file using an expression so that file.zip will be renamed to filemmyy.zip at the end of every month (for instance this month would be file0506.zip).
I am using the destination expression variable. But I'm not sure what to put for DestinationConnection. It seems to want a file name, but the file name is going to be variable, so I'm not sure what to put.
I am having a problem using the file system task, what I am trying to achieve is to move a file after it has been processed . I am using a For each loop container to process bunch of files but I want to remove the files that have been processed after every loop.To achieve this I added a File System Task after my data flow task and was using the same variable used in the for each loop container as my source variable but the package is not being validated and is gives the following error
"variable used as the source or the destination is empty"
I have a File System Task that uses variables to resolve the destination and source paths of a document. When I select the 'copyfile' operation...the document is copied from the source to the destination without error.
However when I change the property from 'copyfile' to 'movefile' I get an error and the document is not moved.
The source and destination variables contain a valid file path name since the copy commmand is working as expected. However when I alter the properties of the File System task to move the document. I get the following error:
Could not find a part of the path 'G:CommonInformation SystemsDropFilesrtNRT_ConfirmationOrder Confirmation Report_11062006.xlsOrder Confirmation Report_11062006.xls
It seems a little nonsensical since the document file paths are valid when performing a copy. For some reason the error log is showing that that the file path is the document name "Order Confirmation Report_11062006.xls" and adding it twice to the the directory path called "'G:CommonInformation SystemsDropFilesrtNRT_Confirmation" as you can see in the above error message.
To replicate the 'move' action...I added an extra File System Task that deletes the document once the copy has been performed. I would like some insight into why this doesn't seem to work.
I used file system watcher to read excel on my pc it worked fine, but when I tried to read the excel from SharePoint it did't work. The FileWatcher box showing the yellow color for long time that I had to stop the ssis.
So my question what is the cause of this. Do i need to set something or am i missing something? Please help.
I am trying to create and later read a data file from a package deployed in SSISDB, but it is not reading it while it is successfully creating the file. The same package when run from the file system package, runs successfully. Generating ispac and deploying in SSISDB is running for infinite time. Is it a permission issue?
I have a well-structured but also very large binary data-set that is generated by a C++ application every five minutes. The data needs to be accessed by SQL applications. Since data is generated every five minutes, performance is key, both for write and read. The data set is about 500MB.If data is written to the file system, the write performance doesn't involve SQL server. For reading it, I have a CLR to read the portions of the data that I need based on offset and length. That works and is very fast. The problem is that data is stored in the file system, so it is not self-contained within the database.
A second option that I haven't explored yet, is to write the data into a table as VARBINARY(MAX). I would read the data using SUBSTRING with appropriate offset and length. Performance of SQL write/read of binary data of this size, and whether there is a third option I haven't thought off. I'm using SQL Server 2014.
I need to create a script task in sql server 2008 R2 to check if a file exists in a directory. For example, to see if output.dat exist under c:results. If the file exists, then send out an email stating the file exists, if not then send out another email stating the file does not exists.I noticed there is a huge difference between the script task in sql 2005 and sql 2008 r2.
I PLACED A FILE SYSTEM OBJECT WICH IS USED TO (COPY FILE/MOVE FILE SO ON ) Once copy file working fine second time copy file gives an errors we need to check the condition if that folder contrain the dest.txt file we dont require to copy a file other wise we need to copy
so i need a controle for checking a folder contrain the dest.txt file or not
I'm just learning 2005, so apologies in advance for the newb questions.
I am facing the following situation: Each day I have to upload an assortment of .csv files with variable names (eg. FileOneYYYYMMDD.csv, FileTwoYYYYMMDD.csv, etc.) to an FTP site, from the following directory structure:
I have accomplished this by setting up a package with three sequence containers (one for each subdirectory), each of which holds a Foreach loop (with a file enumerator configured as *.csv), each of which holds an FTP Task. This may not be the best way to do it, but it works. But if there's a better way I'd like to know!
Anyway, the wall I've run into is trying to move the .csv files to an archive directory after they've been uploaded. The wildcard variable doesn't seem to work with the File System Task, so I'm having a hard time figuring out how to move a bunch of variably named .csv files at different depths of a directory structure to an archive directory.
I'm trying to create an import package using BIDS. I'm using SQL Server 2008. The data is saved as a .csv file so that I can use the flat file option for data source. The issue I am having is that when I preview the flat file after selecting it as the datasource, some of the data that have the numeric file format are showing up as non numeric, for instance the value -1,809,575,682,700 is being viewed as ""1 and the package is giving a conversion error.
I have a requirement to create a package that takes all files in a given folder and adds them to a single archive (.zip) file. I've tried several methods using 7zip and while I can create archives for every file in the directory I can't seem to get them into a single .zip file.
