How To Install Microsoft SQL Server 2016: SSIS Configuration For Named Instances

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis is a short series of posts on how to install Microsoft SQL Server 2016; the series index can be found here.

In the last post, I installed SSIS, but if you are using a named Instance of SQL Server, there is a configuration step required.

To make the change, there is a file called MsDtsSrvr.ini which, for SQL Server 2016, is located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\130\DTS\Binn. The ServerName needs to be changed to include the full SQL Server Instance Name (as highlighted below):

MsDtsSrvr.ini file in Notepad

Once the full SQL Server Instance Name was added and the file saved, SSIS is ready to use.

How To Install Microsoft SQL Server 2016: Installing SQL Server Integration Services

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 0 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis is a short series of posts on how to install Microsoft SQL Server 2016; the series index can be found here.

When I started the installation of the Analysis Cubes for Microsoft Dynamics GP as part of my ‘Hands On with GP 2016 R2 series, I knew I needed SQL Server Analysis Services (clue was in the name), but I didn’t initially realise that I was going to need SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) although in retrospect it should have been obvious too.

The reason SSIS is needed, is that the Analysis Cubes in SSAS are populated by integration jobs from SSIS (scheduled using SQL Server Agent).

So I had to come back and install SSIS. You do this by launching the SQL Server setup utility and, under Installation click on New SQL Server stand-alone installation or add features to an existing installation:

SQL Server Installation Center

How To Install Microsoft SQL Server 2016: Series Index

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 13 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPA new version of SQL Server came out last year, and I’ve been creating some new demo machines for use at work. It has become habit to screenshot everything I install or configure, so I decided I might as well post a small series on how to install Microsoft SQL Server 2016 and it’s component parts.

The posts will be made over the coming days and show in the series index, below:

How To Install Microsoft SQL Server 2016
Installing SQL Server Database Engine
Configuring SQL Server Reporting Services
Installing SQL Server Analysis Services
Installing SQL Server Integration Services
SSIS Configuration For Named Instances
Installing SQL Server Management Studio

The installation of SQL Server has been broken down into different posts, as I don’t install all components all of the time, but only install the ones which are required at the time.

Analysis Cubes for Microsoft Dynamics GP Configuration Error

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPAs part of my hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 series I installed and configured the Analysis Cubes for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

This is the first time I have done this (I tend to hand reporting to other members of my team) and to do it I had to install a couple of extra SQL Server components; namely SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).

This all happened quite smoothly, but when I got to the Analysis Cubes configuration step I encountered a Fatal Error:

Fatal Error - Error encountered --> details written to 'C:\Users\iang\AppData\Local\temp\2\ACConfigurationWizard.log'

Fatal Error

Error encountered --> details written to 'C:\Users\iang\AppData\Local\temp\2\ACConfigurationWizard.log'

I navigated to the specified log file and had a look:
