Problem With WMI Tasks : Waiting For Files In Parallel In A SSIS Package

May 28, 2007


I have a problem with the task "event watcher".

I've made a query like the one in msdn (SELECT * FROM __InstanceCreationEvent WITHIN 10 WHERE Targetinstance ISA "CIM_DirectoryContainsFile" and TargetInstance.GroupComponent= "Win32_Directory.Name="e:\\temp""). I have 20 similar tasks for watching in different folders, but when there are too much tasks in parallel, it doesn't work anymore. I change the numbers of executables to 128 (in the general properties of the package (to test)) but it doesn't seems to work.

I don't understand why it works when there are only 1 or 2 (6 seems to be the maximum) tasks and not if there are more than 6.

Could you help me with this issue?

Configuration : Windows Server 2003, SQL Server 2005, SSIS, Sql Server Agent

Thanks a lot.

Rerunning Package With Parallel Tasks

Jun 26, 2007


I have done a search and have read some of the posts, but am left more confused than before. I am fairly new to SSIS. Here is my situation and what i am trying to accomplish.

I have a package that has a sequence container, in which there are multiple SQL tasks (about 20) running in parallel. I have checkpoints enabled, and FailPackageOnFailure enabled as well. If the package fails, when i re-run the package it will run the last task as well as all the other tasks. What I am looking to accomplish is when the package is re-run, have the SQL tasks that failed ran and not the previous successful tasks.

I think the best way would be via disabling tasks on successful completion of a task, where it writes the name of the SQL task to a temp table, but I am skeptical.

Can anyone point me in a direction to help me accomplish what I am looking for please.

Thanks in Advance.

How To Load Zip Files Using FTP Or Other SSIS Tasks

Mar 7, 2008

HI All,
I have Uzip Files to be downloaded From, the zip files get updated everyday thus i have to download the newly added files, the Zip file has got 13 text Files within it, the issue is:
1. how do i download it for the new zip file only, the zip files are shown below, i am trying using FTP Task, but need more info or other alternative.
2. (Optional) How do i UnZip it and and take the text files and then load them to sql server 2005, each text file has to be loaded to sql server tables.
3. How do i automate it, i mean every time i run the package (on Job based) it has to look the new file only, see the zip file below to understand what i am saying about.

02/25/2008 09:02PM 2,780,729
02/27/2008 09:04PM 1,274,557
02/25/2008 08:57PM 1,383,112
02/26/2008 04:21PM 3,327,882

03/03/2008 05:21PM 1,267,777
03/04/2008 04:49PM 3,238,121

As you can see the Zip file names are the blues color, they are added at different time, when you browse the you will get the blue color files, thus what i need is to download only the current Zip file (i mean i have to downLoad only the newly added Zip file (recent one)). Thus the SSIS Task has to go to this FTP server and look the newly added zip file. (Optional) if possible, After that i have Unzip it b/se i have 13 text files there, and then Load them to Sql Server 2005.

Please get help on this, the deadline is near by time, if possible try as soon as possible, I would like to say Thank you for every help you do and try.

Delete Files Older Than 3 Days Using SSIS Tasks

Aug 11, 2006

I want to delete all files in a given folder that are older than 3 days from today's date.

I tried using a "Foreach Loop container" with a "File System" task inside it but found I couldn't access any file properties such as the file creation date. Am I using the wrong task for this job?



P.S. History of the problem:

I used the sql 2005 Database maintenance program to setup our database backup jobs. One day I noticed that the free space on the drive where we keep the dumps had grown small. I found that we had at least 4 weeks of dumps in there, not the 3 days I wanted to keep! I looked but could not find the "delete file" option in the SSIS package generated by the Database Maintenance Wizard. No wonder the files were piling up.

Error Executing Parallel SQL Tasks

Mar 29, 2006

I have three SQL tasks executing in parallel in an Integration Services package.


It starts with task A; then B, C, and D all execute in parallel; and finally task E runs after BCD are done.

B, C, and D are all Execute SQL tasks, all with the same connection manager. Here is their code:

     FROM temp_B

     FROM temp_C

     FROM temp_D

Each one is setting a binary value to a package variable (using Result Set settings) based on the count of records from different tables.

This works with no problems when I run it against one server (development). But when I switch to the production server, task B and D both fail. I'v checked to make sure all of the temp tables exist in the database for that connection manager and that all three have the same connection manager - all is okay.

Here's the trickier part. When I'm still pointing to the production server and I run these tasks individually, they are all successful. It is only when they are attempting to run in parallel that they fail.

Here is the Output error:
Error: 0xC002F210 at Process Med?, Execute SQL Task: Executing the query "SELECT CASE WHEN COUNT(*) = 0 THEN 0 ELSE 1 END AS Process FROM temp_B" failed with the following error: "Invalid object name 'temp_B'.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly.

What could be causing this? I'm at a loss.

Checkpoints Problem In Parallel Tasks

Oct 24, 2006


I have a master package with a sequence container with around 10 execute package tasks (for child packages), all in parallel. Checkpoints has been enabled in the master package. For the execute package tasks FailParentOnFailure is set to true and for the sequence container FailPackageOnFailure is set to true.

The problem i am facing is as follows. One of the parallel tasks fails and at the time of failure some of the parallel tasks (say set S1) are completed succesfully and few are still in execution (say set S2) which eventually complete successfully. The container fails after all the tasks complete execution and fails the package. When the package is restarted the task which failed is not executed, but the tasks in set S2 are executed.

If FailPackageOnFailure is set to true and whatever be the FailParentOnFailure value for the execute package task, in case of restart the failed package is executed but the tasks in set S2 are also executed.

Please let me know if there is any setting that only the failed task executes on restart.

Thanks in advance

Mar 29, 2008

Thanks in advance in reading this thread.

I have developed a big SSIS package to extract data from flat-files ( + 200 Dataflows ).

The situation is the following, inside de SSIS package, there are a lot of validations before extracting & loading the flat-files, i'm running this validations in paralell, so that when a file arrives, it enters the "validation process" and start extracting the file.

When i run the SSIS package from BIDS it works the way i have concepted it... but when i run the ssis in the server, the tables that are loaded through the process are only "available" when the SSIS PACKAGE ends, it is imperative that trough the process, when a table receives new data, it becomes ready, and don't just be available when the SSIS package finishes...

I have attached the an lousing .jpeg.

It is importart for the tables to be available, so the stored procedures(OUTSIDE SSIS PACKAGE) that are dependent of some tables, start working before the SSIS package Ends.

Thanks in Advance.

Problem: DTS Parallel Tasks Running Sequentially

Aug 23, 2006


I have a SQL Server 2000 instance running on a Windows Server 2003 box with 4 processors. SQL Server is configured to use all 4 processors, and use all available processors for parallelism.

I have created a simple DTS package which has 2 "execute external process" tasks with no precedence constraints between them. There are no connections required or defined for the two tasks (sequential
processing is forced on tasks sharing connections). The DTS package
properties have the "limit the number of tasks to execute in parallel"
set to 4.

However, despite the above configuration, the two steps are never executed in parallel, but always sequentially.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why these tasks are not being executed in parallel?

Any suggestions welcome.

Setup 5 Dataflow Tasks In Series Or Parallel?

Jan 19, 2008

I've create a package that currently uses 5 DataFlow tasks connected in series to get data from 5 different files and place that information into 5 different temp tables. Each Dataflow task contains only a OLE Source, a row count and a OLE destination. My question is - Is it normal practise to keep each of these separate, or should I put them all into a single DataFlow? The package should only continue if all five dataflow task complete successfully.

SSIS SourceID Does Not Match ID For Any Of My Tasks, Package, Etc

Aug 16, 2007

I'm trying to do some custom SSIS logging using event handlers, similar to the ideas provided by Jamie Thomson in the past. My problem is that when I use System:ourceID as one of the items to be logged, I can't match up the SourceID to any of the GUIDs that are displayed in the property window for the various tasks in my package.

Where is this sourceID coming from and how can I track it down?

Thanks for any insight on this.

Multiple Data Flow Tasks In One SSIS Package

Jul 25, 2007

Is this a good idea at all considering the workflow may be similar now but may change in the future? Should it be left as one data flow per package?

SSIS Execute T-SQL Statement Tasks - Run Package On Another Server

Jun 12, 2007

I have some "Execute T-SQL Statement Tasks" in a package. I would like to run this same package on another SQL Server without having to change it on the other server. Since the server name can be given when setting up the connection, I think if I leave the server name out then the package could run on any server? Is my assumption correct?

As a beginner I have created some Packages to import Data to SQL Server.

The Packages are running well.

I have created a Task to run the Package on a SQL SERVER 2005 Express. The Task starts.

Then a Execute Package Wizard Picture appears on the Screen.

I have mannually to select the Connection Manager and the Connection String.

After the selection the Task runs without any Problem.

Now I like to get the Task to run without any manual intervention.

I was looking in Internet but could not find a solution.

Can someone give me a hint how to get the Task working without intervention?

Thanks for an early answer.

SQL 2012 :: Maintenance Plan Task Only After Completion Of Other Parallel Tasks

Dec 11, 2014

I have a scenario where i have to run update task on multiple servers in parallel and once all of them are completed (success or failure) another task is to be run on another server

1. in maintenance plan, if we add tasks which are not joined, will they run in paralled at the same time
2. if we link the last task to all the tasks with link type 'completed' will the last task complete after all tasks are completed or when any one of them is completed (i have big doubt here)

the business requirement behind this is to bring data from multiple servers into shadow copies locally and then process them together. its ok if some server data transfer fails, but its not ok to start processing centrally while data transfer is going on. further, we want to run data transfer from multiple servers in paralleled to save time.

Configured Child Packages - Invoke Without Waiting For Package Completion?

Apr 4, 2007

I want to set multiple child packages running without waiting for them to complete in a parent SSIS package. The catch is that I will be running the same child package in multiple threads with different configuration variables set. I want to drive the config variables for the child packages via a SQL Server table, and start the execution of each child package from within a for-loop container.

Here's what I've tried, and why it didn't work:

1) Execute package task. Didn't work: Waits for the child package to complete before moving to the next step.

2) Kicking off the package via the "sp_start_job" stored proc in the msdn db. Didn't work: Can't specify config variable values.

3) Using the DTExec command line prompt. Didn't work: Same issue as 1). Waits for the package to complete.

Anything I'm missing? Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

SSIS Package For Unzip Files Through Job

Oct 10, 2007


I have created a job that will execute a SSIS package which will unzip some zip files. For unzipping we are using WinZip. In the package I have used a .Net script task for unzipping. This script is using WZUNZIP. When I am executing the package directly it is unzipping all the zip files. But when I am executing the job that will execute the SSIS package for unzipping it is going on with the execution and not unzipping the zip files. So finally I stopped the job.

Can you please help me to resolve this issue?

SSIS Package Access Files Via Openrowset Strange Problem?

Sep 7, 2007

I have three machine:

S: Running SQL Server Express
V: Running SSIS package in VS.Net
F: Shared folder host excel files

And an openrowset SQL statement: select * from openrowset(..... \Fexcel.xls....). This statement can be run in SS management studio connecting to S using my Windows logon(integration security) without any problem.

However, the same SQL running inside SSIS package (integration security using my Windows account) get the following error:

Error: 0x0 at Check headers: OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" for linked server "(null)" returned message "The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file '\Fexcel.xls'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.".

ActiveX Script In A SSIS Package - Calling An FSO To Create/manipulate Files

Jul 3, 2007

I have a SQL2000 DTS package that executes vbscript to loop through a recordset which:

- runs a stored procedure and populated tables

- builds a recordset from the populated tables to write records to an Excel file

- writes status to text files with either the error or success notices

I use FSO to set up the success and error files, but the scheduled job in SQL2005 which calls the SSIS package returns the following error:

"Retrieving the file name for a component failed with error code 0x0015F74C"

I can successullly run this (vbscript) in both the SSIS package via the BI Development Studio and in MS Access (exactly the same code in both) - but not as a SSIS package called in a scheduled job in SQL2005.

I am at an impasse with this ... any and ALL assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.

Problem While Running Package Parallel

Feb 19, 2008


I have a package that is doing some file transformation (Text, XML, and Excel) job based on a variable value. This package is called by a Parent package, where I am calling this package parallel through a script Task. So there are three parallel script task and all variables are local to script task.

In Script Task I am assigning value to child package variable using following code.

packToLaunch = appLaunch.LoadPackage("SSISPackage.dtsx", Nothing)

For iVarCtr = 0 To Dts.Variables.Count - 1

VarName = Dts.Variables(iVarCtr).Name

packToLaunch.Variables(VarName).Value = Dts.Variables(VarName).Value


Dts.TaskResult = packToLaunch.Execute()


Out of three packages some are getting failed saying variables not found in collection.

To read a variable in child package I am setting it to ReadOnlyVariables List of Script Task.

In some places I am using following code

object objValue = null;

Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Variables variables = null;

if (varDispenser.Contains(variableName))


varDispenser.LockOneForRead(variableName, ref variables);

objValue = variables[variableName].Value;

if (variables.Locked) variables.Unlock();


return objValue;


I have created a hash table in child package and stored in a package variable through a script task.

When trying to access the variable through a custom task, in some of threads its returning me System.Object not System.HashTable.

Both the problems are working fine on a single processor machine, it starts giving errors on multi processor 64 bit machine.

Package Hangs On Parallel Upserts

Apr 26, 2006

I have data flow tasks, one which validates the import file and one which processes the import file if the validation passed. The validation runs and pushes the three row types to three different recordset destinations. When I enter the processing data flow task, I have three parallel trees processing each recordset saved in the previous task. I'm using a script component to generate the rows which are then sorted and merged with the production database to find existing records. Based on this, I split to an OLE DB command (running an UPDATE command) or OLE DB destination (to simply insert the records.)

In this particular case, all records are being updated and nothing is being inserted new. Two of the three trees will complete the sort but hang on the merge, split, and OLE DB command components. The other will do the same but also hang on the split.

In another case, I truncated each destination table before running the package and the package runs fine.

Are toes being stepped on in the data flow task and causing a deadlock?

Update: I removed the sort transformation and sorted the rows before pushing them to the recordsets and I still get the same results.

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Extracting Source / Dest Column Details From SSIS Package Files?

Jun 30, 2015

We have several hundred very simple ETL SSIS 2K8 package files (*.dtsx).

I'd like to be able to interrogate them to determine source and destination fields.

There's no great need to map source to dest or to extract data types.

So far, the most promising candidate is to load them using OPENROWSET into an XML field in a SS table.No problem there, but querying using OPENXML has me stumped.

The package files will change a couple of times per year, so the process needs to be repeatable with minimal manual intervention.

Running Multiple Instances Of The Same Package In Parallel

In my application code I am trying to invoke multiple threads in which each thread is loading an instance of the same SSIS package and would initialize the package variables with different values and execute the different instances in parallel. In each thread - after the package execution has completed successfully - I read that instance's SSIS package variables to get result information from that Instance run.

When I load the same package in different thread using LoadFromSqlServer() method
- does the code create multiple instances of the SSIS package and load the distinct instances in each of the thread
- Will the Package Execution ID be different for the different instances?
- Are the package level variables instance safe?

SQL 2012 :: SSIS Execution In Parallel

Feb 24, 2015

We have a monitoring tool that find a query that is using most of execution time of all sessions on the server.

I located it, and found it is a data flow task in an SSIS package.

It export data from a table which has big mount of data to another database.

I know it only executes one time, but I see in the monitoring tool it executes 4 times.

I am wondering is it because SSIS is doing it in parallel execution automatically?

We use all default settings, and the server physical cpu is 4.

Also it says the query is slow is because it has a wait called PREEMPTIVE_OS_WAITFORSINGLEOBJECT
not sure what does that mean

Parallel Development Of SSIS Packages

Jun 29, 2007

I have seen a number of posts regarding parallel development of SSIS packages and need some further information.

So far we have been developing SSIS packages along a single development stream and therefore have managed to avoid parallel development of our packages.

However, due to business pressures we will soon have multiple project streams running in parallel, and therefore multiple code branches, as part of that we will definitely need to redevelop the same SSIS packages in parallel. Judging from your post above and some testing we have done this is going to be a nightmare as we cannot merge the code. We can put in place processes to try and mitigate this but there are bound to be issues along the way.

Do you know whether this problem is going to be fixed? We are now using Team Foundation Server but presumably the merge algorythm used is same/similar to that of VSS and therefore very flaky?

However, not only are we having problems with the merging of the XML files, but we also use script tasks within the packages which are precompiled, as the DTSX files contain the binary objects associated with the script source code, if two developers change the same script task in isolated branches the binary is not recompiled as the merge software does not recognise this object.

Do you know whether these issues have been identified and are going to be fixed to be in line with the rest of Microsoft Configuration Managment principles of parallel development?

Many thanks.
