SSIS Package Cannot Access Remote UNC File Via The Admin Share

I am developing a package to restore a database from backup file on a remote server. I am having problems accessing the remote backup file when it is addressed via the admin share, in this case N$. It runs okay if a specific share is created but for some unknown reason fails via the adminshare.

I am executing the package job with a proxy account that is a member of the local administrators group on the remote server.

It appears that access via a remote admin share isn't possible from within a SSIS package. Is this the case?

SSIS Package, Remote Server Access, Proxy Agent: The Steps

I created an SSIS package that runs fine when invoked manually on a Source server but fails when run via SQL Agent scheduler. The package accesses resouces on a remote server. Are these the steps, in the right order, that I need to do?

1. Create a Credential on the Source Server

(BTW , when I do this, it asks for a Windows login and an account password. I wanted to use a Domain

account but the dialog box does not seem to accept Windows authentication. I'm confused.)

2. Create a Proxy

( I need to use the credential created in 1 above to crate the Proxy)

(What is the Principals page about? I'm creating a Proxy account which I expect to act as the account used

when this step is invoked. I defined the Identity of that account when I created the credential in 1)

3. Schedule the package and create the job step that copies data between remote servers.

(In the "Run As" list, select the proxy created in 1)

SSIS Package Storage In A UNC Network Share?

Somehow I have an impression this can be done.
Somehow I tried myself by modifying MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml to point it to network UNC share, but it didn't work for me. It gave me an error

"Failed to retrieve data for this request (Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoEnum)
Additional Information: The storage localtion for the folder 'File System' cannot be accessed. (MsDtsSrvr)"

I checked my UNC permission, and I even allow full access from "everyone", but it still does not work.

I paste my MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml here too, and any help is greatly appreciated!

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<DtsServiceConfiguration xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
<Folder xsi:type="SqlServerFolder">
<Folder xsi:type="FileSystemFolder">

Trying To Access A DBase III File With A SSIS Package

I am trying to get a handle on the new SQL Server Integration Services in SQL Server 2005. There is a legacy DTS package that I need to get working on our new server (using SQL Server 2005) but I can't seem to get it to work.First, I migrated it and attempted to run the package. It gave me many errors. So, I thought I would just rebuild it in integrated services. Everything was going smooth until I got to the real data transformation part.I added a data flow task and it took me to the Data Flow tab. Then I added a DataReader Source. I am trying to read from a dBase III file and I assumed I would be using an ODBC driver for that. Well... it has been hell trying to get it to see the dBase III file and access it.I have tried two solutions from the internet.This one and this one (by Wenyang) with no positive results.No matter what I do I still get an error in the bottom of the Advanced Editor for DataReader Source that reads: "Error at Sales Transformation [DataReader Source [81]]: Cannot acquire a managed connection from the run-time connection manager."Has anyone attempted anything like this before? Are there any SSIS experts around here that can drop me a few pearls of wisdom?Thanks in advance... I'm dying here.

SSIS Package Can't Access File System


I have an SSIS package that has an "execute process task" that executes a batch file. The package has been deployed to the msdb database, and is called from a stored procedure using xp_cmdshell dtexec ...

I can execute the package just fine if I'm logged onto the server as a system administrator, by running the stored procedure from a query window.

However, if I log on to the server as a non-admin user, the package attempts to run, but breaks at the file system task, with "Access Denied". It can't run the batch file. It seems to be a permissions issue at the file system level.

How do I resolve this?? Please help.

SQL 2005 Maintenance Cleanup Task Is Not Deleting Files On Remote File Share

I have the following issue with Maintenance plan backups that work for BAK DIF and TRN to a remote server share.
When I try and remove the old files with a clean up task I get an error and the files don't get deleted.

The version is as follows
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.3054.00 (X64) Mar 23 2007 18:41:50
Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on
Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 2)

The error result is as follows,

Failed-1073548784) Executing the query "EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_delete_file
0,N'\\EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_delete_file 0,N'\ABCD-A1\BACKUPS\ABCD_BACKUP\ABC_DAILY\ABCD',N'trn',N'2008-01-13T12:52:49'" failed with the following error: "xp_delete_file() returned error 2, 'The
system cannot find the file specified.'". Possible failure reasons: Problems
with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set
correctly, or connection not established correctly.

The maintenance plan seems to be adding extra "" though when i enter the
code directly in a query i get same error.


EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_delete_file 0,N'\ABCD-A1BACKUPSABCD_BACKUPABC_DAILYABCD',N'trn',N'2008-01-13T12:52:49'


xp_delete_file() returned error 2, 'The system cannot find the file specified.'

The servers belong to the same domain and are using the same Service account which has all the necessary rights to the share and the file directory location. The backups work but i get the error on the cleanup task.

Trying to figure out how to get the Cleanup task to delete old files. The same happens for all file extensions and I have tried other locations with simpler file paths same error.

Using SSIS To Access Network Share From Different Domain

Hey All,

This is my first time using the forums here nor am I a SQL programmer. I'm trying to help a coworker figure out how to access files from a network share (using a UNC path) from a different domain. Right now we have three domains - Production, Development, and the Local. There is a one-way trust setup with the development and local domains, so using cross domain accounts is easy. Unfortunately, we cannot setup one right now with our production domain to any of the other two domains. Is there a way to pass production credentials from our local or development domain servers to a production server share? Am I even approaching this in the right way? Maybe there is a different method, any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Admin Access To SQL Without Server/domain Admin Access

We are using Win2k3 R2 with SQL 2000 in a domain environment.

Is it possible to create a domain group to grant admin level and user level access to SQL2000/2005 without giving users server admin or domain admin access?

It has always been my impression that to have admin access to SQL that you had to at least had admin level access on the server.

Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Access To Datareader Destination On A Remote Package

I'm fairly new to SSIS, and I'm looking for some general guidance on the best approach to take to a particular issue. Essentially, I've built a web application, running on a remote server, and I'm looking to take the contents of an Excel spreadsheet, load it into memory, run a whole mess of calculations against it, and then load the results into a table on MS-SQL 2005. The calculations are in a class library, written in C#, so my sense was that the best approach would be to a) load the data into a datareader, b) run the calculations against the data and c) load it to SQL. Of these steps, a) seems like the place where SSIS would come into play.

My question is, once I've got the data into a datareader, how can it be accessed from my code? I'd been playing around with DtsClient until having the realization that it was intended to be used locally. Is there a similar method for doing this sort of thing remotely?

Running Ssis Package With A Remote Sql Agent?

hi all,

thanks for the valuable information all the time!!! saved me a lot of time...

our team developes a system for text data improvement using ssis .

we have a few heavy packages that we want to execute on two separate "SSIS servers" that will be dedicated to runnung these packages only, and repeatedly. the main sql server will be placed on a different server machine .

my question is:

what is the best way to do this?

if we schedule these packages as a job of the Sql Ajent- does that mean that the packages will be executed on the sql server machine (which is not what we want) ? or could we define a remote machine to run the package on, and specify our "SSIS servers"?

or- should we use a simple scedualer on the "SSIS servers" using a dtexec command? but then i loose the benefits in using the sql agent- such as logging, notifications, etc.

do we need to install sqlserver on these "ssis servers"?

thanks for your replies!

.net: Call SSIS-Package From Remote Computer


is there any way to execute a SSIS package at the SQL Server programatically from a remote computer? (I use .net 2)

I don't need variables or return values, I only want to start the package. I know that it is easier to do that job with a webservice etc on the SQL Server but I cannot use such.

A method to call a package from a stored procedure would also help me a lot

Kind regards, _Rodney_

SSIS Package With FTP Task That Preserves Remote Timestamp?

In my SSIS package, I want to use an FTP Task to transfer a remote file locally for processing. Part of this processing involves looking at the file's timestamp to determine the date range of records within the file that I'm interested in.

When I did the FTP steps manually using coreFTP, I had no problems because that FTP client preserves remote timestamps... I'm finding that the SSIS FTP Task doesn't do this. I tried using shell ftp too and ended up again with the current time instead of actual timestamp. Is there any way to get what I'm after using no third party clients?

Maybe MS can add an extra boolean field to the FTP Task Editor for preserving timestamps? :)

ASP.NET Reading Package List From Remote SSIS Server

Hi everyone!

I have a question regarding ASP.NET 2.0 reading available packages (calling "GetDtsServerPackageInfos" on the "Application"-Object which returns "Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.PackageInfos") from a remote SSIS server (not running them). It seems to me that I am experiencing either a security/delegation issue or that I am trying to do something that is not possible...

The setup is the following.

I have two machines, A and B. A runs IIS 6/ASP.NET 2.0 and B runs SQL Server and SSIS. They belong to the same domain. IIS runs the application pool with the webapplication in question under the "Network Service" account and A is trusted for delegation to B. At the moment its trusted when using Kerberos and for MSSQLSrvc and rpcss; but I tried "all" and many more as well.

I configured IE to use Windows Authentication and set the URL to belog to the Intranet (to enable kerberos authentication).

My ASP.NET webapplication now tries to read (in the sense explained above) the available packages on the SSIS machine (B). The packages are stored on the filesystem, not in mdsb. But I feel that this does not matter, since ASP.NET is accessing them through "the SSIS service" which can access packages in msdb or/and on the filesystem?

What happens now is that

a) everything works, when I fire up IE on A and access the webapplication. The user I have on A is a local admin.
b) I get "E_ACCESSDENIED" when I start IE as regular User on A
c) I get "E_ACCESSDENIED" when I access the webapplication from any other machine than A (IE6 or IE7)

My main question is: is it possible to do what I want to do? The other question is, why does everything work when I access the webapplication from A, but not from any other machine? The second thing makes me think it could be a delegation issue (double hop and SSIS don't seem to go togethe too well). But still, I could not find any resource telling me that this is impossible And frankly, I do not fully understand delegation and/or Kerberos.

I would greatly appreciate if anybody had a pointer or something for me.

Btw: Thanks to Caddre for his (her?) first help and pointing me to this forum.

Problem Running SSIS Package As Job On Remote Machine


I have created a SSIS package on my local machine.
I need to deploy this package on a Test Server and it should execute as a scheduled job.

I am not sure of the steps I need to follow and things I need to be careful about.

I have the following doubts:
1) While developing the package, I have referred to the local SQL Server with Windows credentials.
2) The package, once deployed on the Test Server needs to point to the test server database with SQL Server credentials.
3) I know how to create a deployment utility. However, I am not sure if the deployment manifest will run without errors on the remote machine.
4) Even if the deployment manifest executes successfully and deploys the packages, how do I generate a script to create a Job and schedule the package?
5) I am using a File DSN to connect to IBM DB2 database in one of my Data Flow Tasks in this package. How do I configure it automatically on the remote machine? Won't there be any issues with it?

Please help me...

Thanks and Regards,

Execute SSIS Package At Remote Server Across Domain


Is that possible to execute SSIS packages from a remote SQL Server 2005 in another domain at local computer (Windows XP)?

Can I use SQL authentication to connect to the remote SSIS? My problem is, the user who execute the SSIS is not allow to access to SQL server directly. Is that possible to code everything in a batch file instead?

I tried to use web services to execute the remote SSIS but it always return "authentication error"?

Can someone help?

Many thanks!

Access Denied - Remote Connection To SSIS

We have 2 SQL2005 servers currently. 1 is a dev box, the other production. To grant remote access to SSIS, I added my developers to the local Distributed COM Users group and also gave them remote Access and remote Activation on the MsDtsServer component.

This worked just fine. Recently we applied SP1 and the follow-on hotfixes to all SQL components. I followed the install order prescribed in the Q article and applied all component fixes. My developers are now unable to access SSIS remotely unless I add them to the local administrator's group. I don't see anywhere that a log gets generated to help me track down what's going on. Nothing shows up in my Windows security log, despite enabling audit logging on: Accout Logon Events, Logon Event, Object Access, and Privilege Use.

Is this a know issue in SP1 or the hotfixes? I'm hesitant to apply the patches to my production box until I can resolve this issue.

Access Denied Error Message Using Xp_cmdshell To Access Network Share

When running the following statement in SQL 2005, I get the error message "Access is denied":

exec master.dbo.xp_cmdshell 'TYPE \SERVER-BSHAREFILE.TXT'

The following are true about the network:

The SQL Server is installed on SERVER-A.
SERVER-A and SERVER-B are Windows 2003 servers on the same Windows 2003 domain.
The SQL Server and SQL Server Agent services are running under the domain account SQLSERVICE.
SQLSERVICE is a member of the Domain Admins group.
The Domain Admins group is part of the local Administrators group on SERVER-B.
The SQLSERVICE account has also explicitly been given Full Control to the folder referenced by \SERVER-BSHARE
xp_cmdshell use has been enabled on the SQL Server.

If I run the following command in SQL:

exec master.dbo.xp_cmdshell 'whoami'the following is returned: DOMAINSQLSERVICE
If I change the command to access the c: drive instead of a network drive, it executes successfully.

Can anyone shed some light on why I still cannot access any of the files in this folder using xp_cmdshell?

Remote Connection To SSIS Fails With Access Is Denied

I'm new to SSIS and I'm having problems getting a remote connection to the SSIS service using Management Studio on my workstation. If I terminal Service onto the Server I have no problems connecting to SSIS, but if I try to connect remotely I get the "Access is denied" error message. I have completed the following steps:

To configure rights for remote users on Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP
1. If the user is not a member of the local Administrators group, add the user to the Distributed COM Users group. You can do this in the Computer Management MMC snap-in accessed from the Administrative Tools menu.
2. Open Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component Services to start the Component Services MMC snap-in.
3. Expand the Component Services node in the left pane of the console. Expand the Computers node, expand My Computer, and then click the DCOM Config node.
4. Select the DCOM Config node, and then select MsDtsServer in the list of applications that can be configured.
5. Right-click on MsDtsServer and select Properties.
6. In the MsDtsServer Properties dialog box, select the Security tab.
7. Under Launch and Activation Permissions, select Customize, then click Edit to open the Launch Permission dialog box.
8. In the Launch Permission dialog box, add or delete users, and assign the appropriate permissions to the appropriate users and groups. The available permissions are Local Launch, Remote Launch, Local Activation, and Remote Activation. The Launch rights grant or deny permission to start and stop the service; the Activation rights grant or deny permission to connect to the service.
9. Click OK to close the dialog box. Close the MMC snap-in.
10. Restart the Integration Services service.

But I still get the Access is denied error from my workstation??

I have Power User rights on the server and I'm a sysadmin in the database instance. The SSIS packages I am trying to access are stored in the database. If I add myself to the local administrators group on the server I CAN get remote access, but this is not an acceptable solution in our production environment.

Thanks for any help

SQL Remote Admin

Dear Friends,
Please tell me what you would need to administer SQL Server hosted in the
USA. My client need to delete some incorrect information. This is what I
think that you would need. You correct it and email this back to me
immediately. I believe that you will connect using Enterprise Service

1. Version of SQL Server
2. IP address or the name of the server.
3. Win NT Level Security, user name and password at the admin level
4. SQL Server Secutiy, username and password with admin privileges (only
need this if it has been activited)
5. Database Level Security, username and password
6. Name of the database and table (what would you do if the user does
not know the name of database and the table from where the information is to
be deleted, can you query and find out all the databases on the server and
similarly search all the tables)
7. The information to be deleted.

Non Admin Remote Restore

We have an sql server on our internet connection that we are allowing a charity to use. Unfortunately, during this development period, they are constantly modifying their db, requiring the new version to be placed on the server.
At the moment, we (the admin) are manually restoring the backup they send us which is fast becoming a big problem.
Is there a 'clever' way of doing this so that we don't have to be involved manually?
