Hello Masters,

I have SQL Server 2008, My Maintenance plan for backup(Full, Diff and Log) has been failing from last two days. There are 33 DB (Including system db). Whenever i go to edit my maintenance plan its giving me an error "The task requuires connection to be initialised". After I click to "OK" Its allowing me to editing maintenance plan but I am not able to see any DB in the list at mainenance plan window ! I found that there are about 3 DB whose status has been changed to restored, but there is an option that we can exclude DB whose state is not online. i tried it too but still no luck.

Can anyone help me to understand why its failing and how to recover from this error ?

Thanks in advance.

Jitendra

The SSIS service is not needed to run packages which are scheduled via SQL Agent, SQL will execute it via the DTExec command line tool.

If your running the package manually then yes you will need to ensure the SSIS service is online in order for you to connect to SSIS and read the package from the filesystem or MSDB.

If you run the package manually yes.

If you run the package by a Agent Job no.


If you only want to design and to execute SSIS packages, you do not have to start the SSIS service.

You need to have SSIS installed so that the components are available for SQL to use, but the SSIS service doesnt need to be started, it is only a management interface service called when connecting to SSIS vis SSMS.

I second what Anthony said. Your "Connection" field at the top of the maintenance plan window is blank. You need to specify your SQL instance (I would not browse for an instance as that can take a LONG time) and then see if your database list gets populated. If it does not for some reason you may have permissions issues. Any further errors post the screenshot and we can assist further.

If that was true, then you should not be able to schedule maintenance plans for your database backup\maintenance activities if you didn't install Integration Services.

It is easy enough to verify that it is not true. Look at an instance of SQL without Integration Services installed. There should not be any Intergration Services service listed in SQL Server Configuration Manager yet you can still create and run Maintnenance Plans.
