Remote connection to SSIS fails with Access is Denied RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm new to SSIS and I'm having problems getting a remote connection to the SSIS service using Management Studio on my workstation.  If I terminal Service onto the Server I have no problems connecting to SSIS, but if I try to connect remotely I get the "Access is denied" error message.  I have completed the following steps:


    To configure rights for remote users on Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP

    1.           If the user is not a member of the local Administrators group, add the user to the Distributed COM Users group. You can do this in the Computer Management MMC snap-in accessed from the Administrative Tools menu.

    2.           Open Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component Services to start the Component Services MMC snap-in.

    3.           Expand the Component Services node in the left pane of the console. Expand the Computers node, expand My Computer, and then click the DCOM Config node.

    4.           Select the DCOM Config node, and then select MsDtsServer in the list of applications that can be configured.

    5.           Right-click on MsDtsServer and select Properties.

    6.           In the MsDtsServer Properties dialog box, select the Security tab.

    7.           Under Launch and Activation Permissions, select Customize, then click Edit to open the Launch Permission dialog box.

    8.           In the Launch Permission dialog box, add or delete users, and assign the appropriate permissions to the appropriate users and groups. The available permissions are Local Launch, Remote Launch, Local Activation, and Remote Activation. The Launch rights grant or deny permission to start and stop the service; the Activation rights grant or deny permission to connect to the service.

    9.           Click OK to close the dialog box. Close the MMC snap-in.

    10.       Restart the Integration Services service.


    But I still get the Access is denied error from my workstation?? 


    I have Power User rights on the server and I'm a sysadmin in the database instance.  The SSIS packages I am trying to access are stored in the database.  If I add myself to the local administrators group on the server I CAN get remote access, but this is not an acceptable solution in our production environment.


    Thanks for any help
