BizTalk Server 2016 and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) 2016: Connecting to the Integration Services service on the computer “localhost” failed with the following error: “Access is denied.” – PART II: Could not load package BAM_AN_

Last blog post I wrote about an “Access is denied” error while trying to connect with SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Today’s post is about the same problem but in a different situation/context, of course with a different cause and solution, this time I got this error while trying to execute a SQL Server Job to run the BAM_AN_<name>View and BAM_DM_<name> to import BAM data to Analysis Server and maintaining the BAMPrimaryImport BAM tables:

BizTalk Server and SSIS: BAM Job Access is denied

To better contextualize this issue, I got this error after:

  • I give permissions to my user to connect to SSIS (see how in my previous blog post)
  • I successfully created the SQL JOB to import and maintain BAM data, so I was able to navigate in SSIS to select the correct packages

Cause

Again, the description says that by default, only administrators have access to the Integration Services service. On Windows Vista and later, the process must be running with administrative privileges to connect to the Integration Services service. That, in other words, means:

  • insufficient rights to connect to SSIS.

And the reason behind that is that the tasks are by default running under (Run as) SQL Server Agent Service Account that is typically a different user that the user that is configuring/creating the importation Jobs. Usually, it will run under a service account or NT Service like: “NT SERVICEMSSQLSERVER” or in my case “NT ServiceSQLAgent$BIZTALK” and this may not have access to SSIS.

BizTalk Server and SSIS: BAM Job default run as

Solution

The solution to this issue is:

  • to give permission to the SQL Server Agent Service Account
  • or for better control, you should set up a Proxy Account to run SSIS packages.

To set up a Proxy Account to run SSIS packages you should:

  • Note: I will assume that there a Login for the user is already created/configured in SQL Server and that will also have access to BAMPrimaryImport database;
  • The first step is to create the credentials which will be then used in the Proxy Account. To do this, we need to:
    • In SQL Server Management Studio, click on Security and then right click on Credentials, click on New Credential…

BizTalk Server and SSIS: create a new credential

    • On the New Credential window
      • Put a Credential name. You can put the same name as the domain name or a meaningful name. In my case, I add “BAM Import Account”
      • Click on Identity, which will open the Select User or Group window to ensure you select the correct user or Group;
      • And then you will need to put in the password for the Domain account you selected and confirm the password in another text box

BizTalk Server and SSIS: create a new credential

      • Then click Ok to create your new Credential
  • The second step will be creating a proxy to be used within the SQL Server Agent. To do that you should:
    • In SSMS, click on SQL Server Agent, then Proxies and then SSIS Package Execution.
    • Right-click and select New Proxy…

BizTalk Server and SSIS: create a new proxy

    • On the New Proxy account window
      • Give your Proxy a meaningful name, in my case, “BAM Proxy”
      • Under Credential Name select the credential you should use to execute the packages, in my case, “BAM Import Account”
      • And activate the following subsystems from the list:
        • “SQL Server Integration Services Package”

BizTalk Server and SSIS: create a new proxy

      • Then click Ok to create your new Proxy.
  • The third and final step is to associate this proxy on your job execution. To do that you should:
    • In SSMS go to SQL Server Agent, right click on the BAM importation Jobs and select Properties
      • Select the steps tab and for edit all the steps that are executing the SSIS packages
      • On the “Run as” combo box, you will now be able to see the Proxy created earlier. Select that option. And click OK.

BizTalk Server and SSIS: BAM Job Access is denied solved

Now, and assuming that you configured adequately, if you manually run the job, or wait for the next scheduled execution, it will run successfully… we hope.

BizTalk Server 2016 and Install SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) 2016: The specified service does not exist as an installed service

I’m back to writing! With so many talks in recent times and those who still come, and with it all the time necessary to prepare them; with so much work and new projects ongoing (thankfully); with 3 kids at home and recently married… it has been difficult to arrange a free time to concentrate on the writing. But I’m back, and for starting with a smooth topic that I like: “Errors and Warnings, Causes and Solutions” on a problem that actually I faced today while trying to connect with SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS): “The specified service does not exist as an installed service.”

Today, while I was trying to access SSIS from SQL Server 2016 Server, that host and support BizTalk Server 2016 I got the following and bizarre error:

TITLE: Connect to Server

——————————

Cannot connect to ..

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Connecting to the Integration Services service on the computer “localhost” failed with the following error: “The specified service does not exist as an installed service.”.

This error can occur when you try to connect to a SQL Server 2005 Integration Services service from the current version of the SQL Server tools. Instead, add folders to the service configuration file to let the local Integration Services service manage packages on the SQL Server 2005 instance.

BizTalk Server and SSIS: The specified service does not exist as an installed service

Cause

This was bizarre because again I was trying to access to SSIS directly from SQL Server machine and I was sure that I had Integration Services installed and running on the server as I was able to confirm access to the services (services.msc).

BizTalk Server and SSIS: Services

I’m not a SQL Server specialist, but after careful research into the SSIS documentation it says:

“To connect directly to an instance of the legacy Integration Services Service, you have to use the version of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) aligned with the version of SQL Server on which the Integration Services Service is running. For example, to connect to the legacy Integration Services Service running on an instance of SQL Server 2016, you have to use the version of SSMS released for SQL Server 2016.”

BizTalk Server and SSIS: Documentation about versions

That triggered some red lights on my head because:

  • I knew that this was a recent installation and we were using a current version of SQL Server Management Studio (v17.9.1);
  • and I also knew that for example during the BizTalk Server configuration we may face some issues configuring some features if we are using a recent version of SSMS, you should use a compatible and recommended version: SSMS 16.5.3.

Solution

So, to solve this issue, you should:

In my case, I was able to connect to SSIS without any problem from SSMS installed in BizTalk Server 2018 machine because I always installed from day one SSMS 16.5.3 on BizTalk Servers machines.
