Run SSIS package at scheduled time without running SSIS service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I want to run SSIS Package using SQL Agent job, But for some reason, I am allowed to install SSIS services on the server. Is there any way to run SSIS package without running SSIS service? I tried using DTEXEC.exe command, but it still give an error. "To run SSIS package outside SQL server data tools you must install service".

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Swetha,

    The service itself is not doing much (only allows to connect), but to actually execute SSIS packages naturally you have to have the Integration Services installed where you want to run the package. Likewise, if you have SSIS installed elsewhere you can run it remotely off the local SQL Agent that connects to a remote package.
