SSIS Documentation

Apr 17, 2007

Hi folks

According to the book I am reading at the moment, there's supposed to be an SSIS documentation that ships with the product. I had the software installed by the IT guys but nothing with it apart from the books on line.

Does any one know of specific documentation on this?

Reference Documentation On VBA In Relation To SSIS

Feb 21, 2006

Hi, I have heard alot of people talk about using C# for scripting withing SSIS and the answer to that question is no apparently. You can only use VBA but there is no extensive or in my respect any documentation as reference for using VBA in SSIS. I am new to VBA because i used to use jscipt and vbscript in early version of sql server. But in order to learn using VBA, I need to learn it in which there seems to be no reference in relation to SSIS. All the VBA references you find are in relation to MS Office. Is there anything i am missing or can someone show me where to go as my reference for VBA in SSIS. Its bad enough to change the scripting language but worse not to provide any reference materials for uses to get up to speed.

Integration Services :: SSIS Standards And Documentation Template

Oct 21, 2015

I am sure this questions have been asked  but i was not able to find a useful information. 

1. I am looking for a SSIS Standards document or source. A document developer can use for developing ssis package. This should include how to name each container, task , and how to organize things. Basics of SSIS. Is there some kind of source where i can find this information . We are starting out to migrate from informatica to SSIS but before we do that we would like to put standards in place so all SSIS development is consistent.

2. SSIS project documentation template that we can use to document each project.  Is there anything out there that we can follow to document each of our project.

Aug 30, 2006

Hey, I've a few jobs which call SSIS packages. If I run the SSIS package, it runs fine but if I try to run the job which calls this package, it fails. Can someone help me troubleshoot this issue? None of my jobs that call an SSIS package work. All of them fail.

Thank you

Error While Executing SSIS Package From Other SSIS Package

Jan 10, 2007


In our project we have two SSIS package.

And there is a task (Execute SSIS package) in First package that calls the execution of second package.

I m continuously receiving an error "Failed to decrypt protected XML node "PackagePassword" with error 0x8009000B "Key not valid for use in specified state.". You may not be authorized to access this information. This error occurs when there is a cryptographic error. Verify that the correct key is available."

As we are running first package by job, job runs successfully logging above error

The protection level of second package is set to "EncryptSensitiveWithUserKey"

Can anybody please suggest how to handle it?

Passing Execute DTS Package Result (success/failure) To Calling SSIS Package

Mar 6, 2008

I have a SSIS job, one of the last steps it performs is to execute a SQL 2000 DTS package. This has to be done as a SQL 2000 DTS package as it is performing rebuilds of SQL 2000 Analysis Services dimensions and cubes. We've found that when the DTS fails the SSIS job is happily completing showing as a success, we would prefer to know it went wrong.

As far as I'm aware SSIS merely starts the DTS off and doesn't care about it's result. I've taken a look in to turning on the logging for the execute DTS package and thought that the ExecuteDTS80PackageTaskTaskResult would give me the answer I need...but is merely written to the log not available as an event-handler. It also looks like it is not safe to put a SQL task in as the next item to go look at the SQL 2000 system tables to look at the log for the DTS package as the SSIS documentation warns that the DTS package can continue to run after the execute DTS package task has ended.

Ideally I want any error raised within the DTS package to cascade up to be an error in the SSIS job, I can then handle it appropriately. I cannot find a way to do this. Is there a way?

If not, can anyone suggest how in the remainder of the SSIS tasks I can be sure that the DTS has completed before I start any other tasks that will check for the SQL 2000 log of its execution?

Several Different Errors When Creating And Running SSIS Package. Package Runs Successfuly Sometimes.

May 2, 2008

Hi All,

I am in the process of moving from a 32-bit SQL Server 2005 Enterprise (9.0.3054) to a 64-bit SQL Server 2005 Enterprise (9.0.3054 with 4 CPUs and 8GB of memory on Win 2003 SP2) and the process has been very frustrating to say the least. I am having a problem with packages that I created on my 64-bit SQL Server. I am importing a few tables from the 32-SQL Server into the 64-bit SQL Server using the Task --> Import to create the package.

Sometimes when I am creating a package I get the following error in a message box:

SQL Server Import and Export Wizard

The SSIS Runtime object could not be created. Verify that DTS.dll is available and registered. The wizard cannot continue and it will terminate.

Additional information: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt. (System.Windows.Forms)

Other times when I run a package that has run successfully before I get the following error:

Faulting application dtexecui.exe, version 9.0.3042.0, stamp 45cd726d, faulting module unknown, version, stamp 00000000, debug? 0, fault address 0x025d23f0.

Other times I get this error message:

.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.1433 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (79FFEE24) (80131506)

And still other times

The package appears to hang when running. By this I mean that the Package Execution Progress shows progress up to a point then it just stops. (The package takes about 17 seconds to run normally) CPU usage is at 1% and the package cannot be stopped.

I have deleted and re-created the package several times and I have also re-installed the service pack on the SQL Server (9.0.3054) but that did not help.

Does anyone have any other suggestions to try?

Problem When Running A SSIS Master-package-child Package On Non Default Sql-server Instance

Dec 6, 2007

Hi there

We have a SSIS run which runs as follows

The master package has a configuration file, specifying the connect strings
The master package passes these connect-strings to the child packages in a variable
Both master package and child packages have connection managers, setup to use localhost. This is done deliberately to be able to test the packages on individual development pcs.
We do not want to change anything inside the packages when deploying to test, and from test to production. All differences will be in the config files (which are pretty fixed, they very seldom change). That way we can be sure that we can deploy to production without any changes at all.

The package is run from the file system, through a job-schedule.

We experience the following when running on a not default sql-server instance (called dkms5253uedw)

Case 1:
The master package starts by executing three sql-scripts (drop foreign keys, truncate tables, create foreign keys). This works fine.

The master package then executes the first child package. We then in the sysdtslog get:

Error - cannot connect to database xxx?
Info - package is preparing to get connection string from parent ?

The child package then executes OK, does all its work, and finish. Because there has been an error, the master package then stops with an error.

Case 2:
When we run exactly the same, but with the connection strings in the config file pointing to the default instance (dkms5253), the everything works fine.

Case 3:
When we run exactly the same, again against the dkms5253uedw instance, but now with the exact same databases defined in the default instance, it also works perfect.

Case 4:
When we then stop the sql-server on the default instance, the package faults again, this time with

Error - timeout when connect to database xxx?
Info - package is preparing to get connection string from parent ?

And the continues as in the first case

From all this we conclude, that the child package tries to connect to the database before it knows the connection string it gets passed in the variable from the master package. It therefore tries to connect to the default instance, and this only works if the default instance is running and has the same databases defined. As far as we can see, the child package does no work against the default instance (no logging etc.).

We have tried delayed validation in the packages and in the connection managers, but with the same results (error).

So we are desperately hoping that someone can help us solve this problem.

Report With SSIS Package Having Indirect Package Configuration Setup

Sep 10, 2007

Deployed Report having SSIS package as source do not work when Indirect Package configuration is used in ETL package. It seems ETL package when called/executed from Report manager does not recognize environment variable to pick up the dtsconfig file.

The Report works when Direct package configuration is used to same dtsconfig file.

What could be the reason? Any solution for this? This will cause our build/deployment to QA and Prod very difficult.

Problem Setting Package Variables In SSIS Package

Sep 8, 2006


I am making use of the DtUtil tool to deploy my package to SQL Server.
Following is my configuration:
32-bit machine and 32-bit named instance of Yukon.

I have some package variables which need to be set in the code.

Previously I did it as follows:

Set the package variables in the code. For example:

pkgFile.Variables["User::DestinationServerName"].Value = <myvalue>

Deploy the package as follows:

applnObj.SaveToSqlServer(pkgFile, null,
destinationServer, null, null);

Here the package was successfully deployed and when i open those packages using BIDS, I am able to see that the variables are set to the values as doen in teh code.

Because of oen problem I am not using SaveToSQLServer method. So I switched to DTUtil tool.
Now I am doing it this way:

Set the package variables as before.
Deploy the package to SQL Server using DTUtil tool.

Now is the problem:
The package is successfully deployed. But the variables are not set to the value that I have specified in the code.

I also tried DTexec utility to set the package variable. Even that does n't work.
Can anyone help me out? Is there any alternate method to set package variables?

Integration Services :: Executing Child SSIS Package In Parent SSIS

Oct 9, 2015

I want to achieve the following in (SSIS/SSDT for SQL 2012) - 

I have a generic SSIS package which simply sends out email notifications using SMTP email task (this package is within its own project, and has project level input parameters).

I need to be able to call this package in the Event handler section of every package (numbering in about less than 60) that we have. These packages are within their own respective projects.

I thought I could use the "execute package task", but it turns out , using this, I cannot call a package that is part of some other project. I also cannot call a package that is stored in the CATALOG. Is there any way I can do this ?

When I call the child package , I should be able to send in parameters like - error information and package name of the Parent package.

SSIS Called From Agent Job Not Calling New Child SSIS Package Addition

Oct 29, 2007

I have an SSIS package (TransAgentMaster) that I recently modified to include a call to a child package via the file system. The child package creates a text file. When I run the package in dev studio then the child package/text file is produced.

I then imported the TransAgentMaster as a stored packagesfilesystem package into SQL SSIS and executed the package. The child package produced the text file.

I then ran the SQL Server Agent to see if the child package would work and it did not generate the text file. Thus after updating a SSIS package importing the package into SSIS the job that calls the package will not call the child package. Please not that the TransAgentMaster package calls 7 children packages just not my new one.

Any thoughts why the agent will not run the child newly crated childe package?

SSIS - Get ServerName From A XML Or TXT File Into SSIS Package

Jan 4, 2008

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?!

Load A SSIS Package Via Web Service: The Package Failed To Load Due To Error 0xC0011008 Error Loading From XML.WHAT IS THAT?

May 19, 2006


I have a big problem and i'm not able to find any hint on the Network.

I have a window2000 pc, VS2005,II5 and SQLServer 2005(dev edition)

I created an SSIS Package (query to DB and the result is loaded into an Excel file) that works fine.

I imported the dtsx file inside my "Stored Packages".

I would like to load and run the package programmatically on a Remote Scenario using the web services.

I created a solution with web service and web page that invoke the web service.

When my code execute:
Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Application.LoadFromDtsServer(packagePath, ".", Nothing)

I got the Error:
Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.DtsRuntimeException: The package failed to load due to error 0xC0011008 "Error loading from XML. No further detailed error information can be specified for this problem because no Events object was passed where detailed error information can be stored.". This occurs when CPackage::LoadFromXML fails.

The error message doesn't help so much and there is nothing on the www to give me and advice....

Is it a SSIS problem???

Thank you for any help!!
