Access denied to Integration services RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I am trying to connect to integration services database it is giving me below error, let me know how to fix this.

    is it because I am trying to connect as SA\ if so then how can I get rid of SA\ and connect as normal connection. I am able to connect to sqlserver using management studio with SA\username. 

    SQL Server version is 2012

  • Are you logged in locally on the machine where SQL/SSIS is installed, or are you attempting to connect remotely with SSMS from your workstation or laptop ?

    If attempting remote connection from a workstation via SSMS, you (or a system administrator) will first need to login locally on the SQL Server machine and configure permissions for SSIS access:
    Grant Permissions to Integration Services Service

    Hope that helps,

  • Hi thanks Philfactor,

    I am logging in locally using management studio.  SQL Server 2012 is installed locally on my machine.

    I was able to login earlier, looks like I messed up something, which I am trying to fix.

  • Hi Neil,

    As the above article provided by philfactor shows, when we install the current release of SQL Server, users do not have access to the Integration Services service. So, you could first have a try to refer to the steps to add the account “SA\XXX” to Launch and Activation Permissions area.

    Or, since it’s on your own local computer, you could refer to following link to add the “SA\XXX” to local Group Administrators and then login again.


    Best Regards,
