Published SSIS Package in SQL Server 2012

What happened to the export SSIS package?

Going from 2008R2 to 2012, SSIS packages began using the project deployment model.

The quick way to get a copy of the SSIS package out of SQL is to run SQL Server Management Studio as Administrator and expand the tree:

“Integration Services Catalogs” -> SSISDB -> ProjectFolderName -> Projects -> ProjectName

Then right-click the ProjectName and select “Export…”

Save and remember the name and path you save the *.ispac file.

Rename the ispac file with *.zip

Then can unzip the file.

@@Servername is NULL

After applying CU8 for SQL 2012 SP2 @@Servername was null 

Somehow ended up in condition of no entry in sys.servers for server_id 0

select * from sys.servers where server_id=0

This returned 0 rows.  Can add the local server with:

sp_addserver ‘<servername>’, local

Then had to restart the server for it to take effect

If it will be a while before can reboot, then suggest using

The partner transaction manager has disabled its support for remote/network transactions

First verify the “Distribute Transaction Coordinator” Service is running on both database server computer and client computers

1.      Go to “Administrative Tools > Services”

2.      Turn on the “Distribute Transaction Coordinator” Service if it is not running

If it is running and client application is not on the same computer as the database server, on the computer running database server

1.      Go to “Administrative Tools > Component Services”

2.      On the left navigation tree, go to 

“Component Services > Computers > My Computer”  (you may need to double click and wait as some nodes need time to expand)

3.      Right click on “My Computer”, select “Properties”

4.      Select “MSDTC” tab

5.      Click “Security Configuration”

6.      Make sure you check “Network DTC Access”, “Allow Remote Client”, “Allow Inbound/Outbound”, “Enable TIP”  (Some option may not be necessary, have a try to get your configuration)

7.      The service will restart


On your client computer use the same above procedure to open the “Security Configuration” setting, make sure you check “Network DTC Access”, “Allow Inbound/Outbound” option, restart service and computer if necessary.

On you SQL server service manager, click “Service” dropdown, select “Distribute Transaction Coordinator”, it should be also running on your server computer.
