The owner of the job is an administrator in SQL Server. I have the

I've created other jobs that just execute plain old SQL using the

What am I missing?
Any help would be appreciated!

I have an SSIS package that inserts website URLs from a SQLServer table into a variable used by an HTTP Connection Manager, then downloads the data files from those URLs using a ForEach Loop and a Script Task. Works beautifully when a data file is found at the URL, but hangs if no data file is found. I've set the Timeout property on the HTTP Connection Manager to 30 seconds, but doesn't work. how to first check if a data file exists, of if the request returns nothing, or how to trap this situation in a try-catch?
Here is the VB code I'm using in the Script Task:
Public Sub Main() Try ' Connect to website using HTTP connection manager Dim nativeObject As Object = Dts.Connections("HTTP Connection Manager").AcquireConnection(Nothing) ' Create a new HTTP client connection Dim connection As New HttpClientConnection(nativeObject)

I have a stored procedure which when executed from management studio completes successfully. If I invoke the stored procedure from SSIS which in turn is called from a SQL Server job the jobs runs indefnitely.
Now I wanted to see how far did it go in the execution of sp and I had some logging done at various places in stored procedure....It came till the RETURN 0 , the last statement of sp. The call to the SP is the last task in the SSIS package...So if the sp is alsmost completed and execute sql task is the last one in SSi, why is the job running indefinitely.
Hello everyone, I am having an odd behavior with an SSIS package that transfers data from one database to another. It seems to me that with some of the larger databases the services just stops working (0% utilization) when it is almost done. I don't get errors and the job stays in the "executing" state.
This doesn't happen always, but it will happen once the package is ran many times over the course of the week, I was wondering if you guys could point me in a direction on how I can find out the source of these hangs. Right now I am leaning towards it being a memory issue (or other misc. hardware problems) but I would like to rule out that it is software first.
I have two SSIS packages that I want to run in one SQL Agent job as two individual steps. The two packages run fine when they are in separate jobs. However, when I run the job conaining both SSIS packages (under the same proxy), the first SSIS package starts, but hangs in the middle.
I then tried setting the DelayValidation flag to True as suggested for a similar issue in another thread from this forum. After changing the DelayValidation flag to True for all containers and tasks on the second SSIS package, the first SSIS package ran completely through sucessfully, but the job continued executing for hours and the second SSIS package never started. I finally killed the job.
Any ideas as to what is the problem here? I have logged to the event viewer and see that the first package completes sucessfully. They run successfully in separate jobs, but I can not get them to run together within the same job without hanging.
I have a number of packages that I have moved from an old server. Each package was scheduled with a SQL Agent job. On the old server everything ran fine. All of the packages run fine from VS, from DTEXECUI and I have tried one from the command line with DTEXEC and it worked.
When I run from the SQL Agent job, I don't get a failure, the package just hangs. I let one of the agent jobs sit for an hour with no progress. The package typically takes about 15 minutes to complete.
Below is the output from my package log up to the point that it hangs:
I created a SSIS package which loads CSV into database. The package is called in a C# console application which is set as scheduled task in a server. The problem I having is that the package hangs during validation stage: "Truncation may occur due to inserting data from data flow column "Reading Type" with a length of 50 to database column "ReadingType" with a length of 2."There is no problem loading same data from development machine.
Hi, we are writting a SQL Server Integration Services package to import data from a MySql database to a Sql Database.
We are using ODBC 3.51 Drivers to connect to the MySql Database in SSIS. The package runs perfectly in design mode. When we schedule the package to run, the package seems to hang about 1/3 of the times.
What can this be. We used to the package and ran it from a Sql Server 2005 to a Sql Server 2005 database. This setup works perfectly. When i'm doing MySql to Sql Server 2005, 1/3 of the times, it does not work.
When I push my SSIS packages up to my production server (which has a different data source than my developement environment) and I try to open the package on the production server, it takes forever for to validate all the steps of the SSIS package because it's trying to validate against a datasource that isnt there, so it just waits for each element it's validating to time out. This is exceptionally annoying.
Is there a way to turn off this validation 'feature'?
We're experiencing a problem where intermittently our SSIS packages will hang. There are no log errors or events in the event viewer. It will happen whether the package is executed from the SQL Job Agent or run from BIDs. When running from BIDs it appears to hang inside one of the data flows (several parallel pipes with sorts, merge joins etc...). It appears to hang in multiple pipes within the data flow component. The problem is reproducable, we just kill it and re-run, and it appears to hang in the same places.
Now here's the odd thing: as we simply open and close some of the components in the pipe line after the place it hangs, a subsequent run will go further in the pipeline before hanging. If we open and close all the components after the point it initially hung, the data flow will run fine, from there on out. When I say "open and close" I mean no changes are made, we simply double-click the component, like a merge join, then click 'close.'
To me this does not seem like a memory problem but likely something is wrong with the metadata, where opening a component and closing it somehow alters the metadata to "right it".
This seems to occur intermittently after we make modifications to the package. It's like if you make any mod, even unrelated to the data flow, you then have to go through and open and close every component in your package to ensure it will work. Again, no errors or warnings are fired.
The package always runs fine on my developing machine and will halt on other machine at AddBlobData after certain number row records were processed. I am stuck here. Anyone has any suggestion?
What I need is reading data from mutiple tables in one database and writing into a single table in another datable. In order preserve all the columns data, I use input column fields to construct a new object and then serialize it, and store the serialize data into detination db table. (The object and serialization function is coming from c# dll.)
Dim b As BusinessLicense = New BusinessLicense() b.ApprovalDate = Row.approvaldate b.BusinessId = Row.busid b.BusinessName = Row.busname b.NaicsCode = Row.naicscode b.NaicsDescription = Row.naicsdescr b.OwnerName = Row.ownername b.Phone = Row.phone b.Pkey = Row.pkey b.RenewalDate = Row.renewaldate b.StartDate = Row.startdate b.Suite = Row.suite
Row.serializedobject.AddBlobData(Serializer.Serialize(b)) '''----This is blocking line Row.infoType = BusinessLicense.TYPE
Both machine is xp with sp2. and standard SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.1399.06
Hello Experts, I am createing one task (user control) in SSIS. I have property grid in my GUI and 2 buttons (OK & Cancle). PropertyGrid has Properties like SourceConnection, OutputConnection etc....right now I am able to populate Connections in list box next to Source and Output Property.
Now my question to you guys is depending on Source Connection it should read that text file associated with connection manager. After validation it should pick header (first line of text file bases on record type) and write it into new file when task is executed. I have following code for your reference. Please let me know I am going in right direction or not.. What should go here ? ->Under Class A
In a foreachloop, I am inserting records into a flat file which is working fine. But the thing is that as the file grows, it takes longer for it to locate the EOF(End of File) of the flat file so as to insert the records.
I have around 70-100 lines written to the file at each loop and there are more than 20k records to be looped. wihich means that at the end I should be having 1400k - 20000k line in the text file.
One solution would be to insert the records at the start of the file itself so that it does not has to lookup the EOF each time before writting.
Another would be to generate separate files and then merge it.
Any idea how can this can be done?
Beside this I have to zip the file and then SFTP to a given address.
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 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 need to build an asp.net/C# application to read values from an Excel spreadsheet. Once the values are read from the spreadsheet, the C# code will do some elementary statistics on the values read. Then the values read and their computations will be written to a sql server database. My manager suggested that SSIS might be a good candidate technology for doing this type of work. Does that sound correct? My only hesitation with using SSIS is that I want to keep the application as simple as possible, so that the code can be more portable. Maybe might argument is not a good one, but maybe someone can help me out here. Ralph
Dear Friends, I store several configurations in the main database of my SSIS packages. I need to get the servername from a xml or txt file in order to get those configurations stored in my database. How you think is the better way to do that? Using a FlatFileSource to read the file and a script to save the value into a SSIS variable? Using the package configuration I cant do that... maybe I dont know, but I can save the SSIS variale in the configuration file, but what I need is to do the inverse, read the configuration file and save the value in the SSIS variable. How the best way you suggest?! Regards!! Thanks.
Is there anyway to send excel file from ssis using send mail task without saving the excel file locally. I need to automate the process which involves loading the excel file from the database and send it to some people.
I am using an XML source component to integrate it into an SQL server data base.My problem is that when I try to open my data flow containing the XML source component, it take much time to open it, so I don't know why beacause I have a very good machine with 2GO of RAM. is it a problem of SSIS with XML files?

have a URL that I get from a partner by calling another URL and feeding it some query parameters. That call returns to me a URL which is what I need to then go get the file I'm downloading. I have no problem getting that URL into a variable in my SSIS package. URL....there are several key-value pairs after that question mark which denote the login information, the report ID that it's picking up, etc.
If I manually take that URL and dump it into IE and hit enter, I get the standard "Open/Save/Cancel" prompt. If I open it, I see the XML that should be in my file in the browser. If I save it, I get the standard save dialoge box so that I can save the xml file.How do I do this in SSIS? I can create a file connection for where I want this XML file to be saved, but I don't see an option in the XML task to simply save the file from a URL.
