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.”

Let’s stay on the topic of my last blog post “BizTalk Server 2016 and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) 2016” and described another issue that I recently faced while trying to connect with SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS): “Access is denied“. The full error description was:

TITLE: Connect to Server

——————————

Cannot connect to localhost.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Failed to retrieve data for this request. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc)

Connecting to the Integration Services service on the computer “localhost” failed with the following error: “Access is denied.”

By default, only administrators have access to the Integration Services service. On Windows Vista and later, the process must be running with administrative privileges in order to connect to the Integration Services service. See the help topic for information on how to configure access to the service.

Cause

Well, 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 in order to connect to the Integration Services service. However, I was a local administrator and a BizTalk Administrator

But still, the cause is clear: insufficient rights to connect to SSIS. When using SQL Server 2012 or later, when a user without enough rights attempts to connect to an instance of Integration Services on a remote server, the server responds with an “Access is denied” error message. You can avoid this error message by ensuring that users have the required DCOM permissions.

Solution

So, to solve this issue, you should:

  • Open Component Services; from a Run dialog, you can enter “dcomcnfg“, with Administrator permissions.
  • On the left-hand tree, navigate to Component Services | Computers | My Computer | DCOM Config.
  • Find “Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services 13.0“, right-click and select “Properties
  • On the Properties windows, select the “Security” tab and for each type of permission click “Edit” and add an appropriate AD group or user.
    • Select “Allow” to all options.

Once you have completed, you will be required to restart the SSIS service.

  • From the start menu, navigate to the “SQL Servers Configuration Manager“, right-click on “SQL Server Integration Services“, and “Restart“.
