Consider a scenario where you installed SQL 2012 Integration Services and when non-admin is trying to connect to the Integration Service using SSMS , they receive an “Access is denied” error as shown in the screen below
This issue might be caused due to behavioral changes with security in SSIS 2012 setup. In previous versions of SQL Server, by default when you installed SQL Server all users in the Users group had access to the Integration Services service. When you install the current release of SQL Server, users do not have access to the Integration Services service. The service is secure by default. After SQL Server is installed, the administrator must grant access to the service
To grant access to non-admin user to the Integration Services service
- Run Dcomcnfg.exe. Dcomcnfg.exe provides a user interface for modifying certain settings in the registry.
- In the Component Services dialog, expand the Component Services > Computers > My Computer > DCOM Config node.
- Right-click Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services 11.0, and then click Properties.
- On the Security tab, click Edit in the Launch and Activation Permissions area.
- Add users and assign appropriate permissions, and then click Ok.
- Repeat steps 4 – 5 for Access Permissions.
- Restart SQL Server Management Studio.
- Restart the Integration Services Service
If we still continue to see the Access is denied errors, we should following troubleshooting steps mentioned in the following KB article
Hope this helps !!!
