Upgrade Integration Services

If SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) or SQL Server 2008 Integration Services (SSIS) is currently installed on your computer, you can upgrade to SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS).

When you upgrade to SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS) on a machine that has one of these earlier versions of Integration Services installed, SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS) is installed side-by-side with the earlier version.

With this side-by-side install, multiple versions of dtexec utility are installed. To ensure that you run the correct version of the utility, at the command prompt run the utility by entering the full path (<drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\<version>\DTS\Binn). For more information about dtexec, see dtexec Utility.

Note Note

In previous versions of SQL Server, by default when you installed SQL Server all users in the Users group had access to the Integration Services service. When you install SQL Server 2014, users do not have access to the Integration Services service. The service is secure by default. After SQL Server 2014 is installed, the SQL Server administrator must run the DCOM Configuration tool (Dcomcnfg.exe) to grant specific users access to the Integration Services service. For more information, see Grant Permissions to Integration Services Service.

We recommended that you run Upgrade Advisor before you upgrade to SQL Server 2014. Upgrade Advisor reports issues that you might encounter if you migrate existing Integration Services packages to the new package format that SQL Server 2014 uses. For more information, see Use Upgrade Advisor to Prepare for Upgrades.

Note Note

Support for migrating or running Data Transformation Services (DTS) packages has been discontinued in in the current release of SQL Server Integration Services. The following DTS functionality has been discontinued.

  • DTS runtime

  • DTS API

  • Package Migration Wizard for migrating DTS packages to the next version of Integration Services

  • Support for DTS package maintenance in SQL Server Management Studio

  • Execute DTS 2000 Package task

  • Upgrade Advisor scan of DTS packages.

For information about other discontinued features, see Discontinued Integration Services Functionality in SQL Server 2014.

You can upgrade by using one of the following methods:

  • Run SQL Server 2014 Setup and select the option to Upgrade from SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2, or SQL Server 2012.

  • Run setup.exe at the command prompt and specify the /ACTION=upgrade option. For more information, see the section, "Installation Scripts for Integration Services," in Install SQL Server 2014 from the Command Prompt.

You cannot use upgrade to perform the following actions:

  • Reconfigure an existing installation of Integration Services.

  • Move from a 32-bit to a 64-bit version of SQL Server or from a 64-bit version to a 32-bit version.

  • Move from one localized version of SQL Server to another localized version.

When you upgrade, you can upgrade both Integration Services and the Database Engine, or just upgrade the Database Engine, or just upgrade Integration Services. If you upgrade only the Database Engine, SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) or SQL Server 2008 Integration Services (SSIS) remains functional, but you do not have the functionality of SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS). If you upgrade only Integration Services, SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS) is fully functional, but can only store packages in the file system, unless an instance of the SQL Server 2014 Database Engine is available on another computer.

This section describes the effects of performing an upgrade that has the following criteria:

  • You upgrade both Integration Services and an instance of the Database Engine to SQL Server 2014.

  • Both Integration Services and the instance of the Database Engine are on the same computer.

What the Upgrade Process Does

The upgrade process does the following tasks:

  • Installs the SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS) files, service, and tools (Management Studio and SQL Server Data Tools). When there are multiple instances of SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 on the same computer, the first time you upgrade any of the instances to SQL Server 2014, the SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS) files, service, and tools are installed.

  • Upgrades the instance of the SQL Server 2005 or the SQL Server 2008 Database Engine to the SQL Server 2014 version.

  • Moves data from the SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) or SQL Server 2008 Integration Services (SSIS) system tables to the SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS) system tables, as follows:

    • Moves packages without change from the msdb.dbo.sysdtspackages90 system table to the msdb.dbo.sysssispackages system table.

      Note Note

      Although the data moves to a different system table, the upgrade process does not migrate packages to the new format.

    • Moves folder metadata from the msdb.sysdtsfolders90 system table to the msdb.sysssisfolders system table.

    • Moves log data from the msdb.sysdtslog90 system table to the msdb.sysssislog system table.

  • Removes the msdb.sysdts*90 system tables and the stored procedures that are used to access them after moving the data to the new msdb.sysssis* tables. However, upgrade replaces the sysdtslog90 table with a view that is also named sysdtslog90. This new sysdtslog90 view exposes the new msdb.sysssislog system table. This ensures that reports based on the log table continue to run without interruption.

  • To control access to packages, creates three new fixed database-level roles: db_ssisadmin, db_ssisltduser, and db_ssisoperator. The SQL Server 2005 Integration Services roles of db_dtsadmin, db_dtsltduser, and db_dtsoperator are not removed, but are made members of the corresponding new roles.

  • If the SSIS package store (that is, the file system location managed by the Integration Services service) is the default location under \SQL Server\90, \SQL Server\100, or \SQL Server\110 moves those packages to the new default location under \SQL Server\120.

  • Updates the Integration Services service configuration file to point to the upgraded instance of the Database Engine.

What the Upgrade Process Does Not Do

The upgrade process does not do the following tasks:

  • Does not remove the SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) or SQL Server 2008 Integration Services (SSIS) service.

  • Does not migrate existing Integration Services packages to the new package format that SQL Server 2014 uses. For information about how to migrate packages, see Upgrade Integration Services Packages.

  • Does not move packages from file system locations, other than the default location, that have been added to the service configuration file. If you have previously edited the service configuration file to add more file system folders, packages that are stored in those folders will not be moved to a new location.

  • In SQL Server Agent job steps that call the dtexec utility (dtexec.exe) directly, does not update the file system path for the dtexec utility. You have to edit these job steps manually to update the file system path to specify the SQL Server 2014 location for the dtexec utility.

What You Can Do After Upgrading

After the upgrade process finishes, you can do the following tasks:

  • Run SQL Server Agent jobs that run packages.

  • Use Management Studio to manage Integration Services packages that are stored in an instance of SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2014. You need to modify the service configuration file to add the instance of SQL Server 2008 to the list of locations managed by the service.

    Note Note

    Early versions of Management Studio cannot connect to SQL Server 2014 Integration Services (SSIS) Service.

  • Identify the version of packages in the msdb.dbo.sysssispackages system table by checking the value in the packageformat column. The table has a packageformat column that identifies the version of each package. A value of 2 in the packageformat column indicates a SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) package; a value of 3 indicates a SQL Server 2008 Integration Services (SSIS) package. Until you migrate packages to the new package format, the value in the packageformat column does not change.

  • You cannot use the SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 tools to design, run, or manage Integration Services packages. The SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 tools include the respective versions of SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard, and the Package Execution Utility (dtexecui.exe). The upgrade process does not remove the SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 tools. However, you will not able to use these tools to continue to work with SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) or SQL Server 2008 Integration Services (SSIS) packages on a server that has been upgraded.

  • By default, in an upgrade installation, Integration Services is configured to log events that are related to the running of packages to the Application event log. This setting might generate too many event log entries when you use the Data Collector feature of SQL Server 2014. The events that are logged include EventID 12288, "Package started," and EventID 12289, "Package finished successfully." To stop logging these two events to the Application event log, open the registry for editing. Then in the registry, locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\120\SSIS node, and change the DWORD value of the LogPackageExecutionToEventLog setting from 1 to 0.

This section describes the effects of performing an upgrade that has the following criteria:

  • You upgrade only an instance of the Database Engine. That is, the instance of the Database Engine is now an instance of SQL Server 2014, but the instance of Integration Services and the client tools are from SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008.

  • The instance of the Database Engine is on one computer, and Integration Services and the client tools are on another computer.

What You Can Do After Upgrading

The system tables that store packages in the upgraded instance of the Database Engine are not the same as those used in SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008. Therefore, the SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 versions of Management Studio and SQL Server Data Tools cannot discover the packages in the system tables on the upgraded instance of the Database Engine. Because these packages cannot be discovered, there are limitations on what you can do with those packages:

  • You cannot use the SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 tools, Management Studio and SQL Server Data Tools, on other computers to load or manage packages from the upgraded instance of the Database Engine. 

    Note Note

    Although the packages in the upgraded instance of the Database Engine have not yet been migrated to the new package format, they are not discoverable by the SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 tools. Therefore, the packages cannot be used by the SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 tools.

  • You cannot use SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) or SQL Server 2008 Integration Services (SSIS) on other computers to run packages that are stored in msdb on the upgraded instance of the Database Engine.

  • You cannot use SQL Server Agent jobs on SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 computers to run SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) or SQL Server 2008 Integration Services (SSIS) packages that are stored in the upgraded instance of the Database Engine.
