I thought I'd log this topic here after concluding an exhaustive investigation of this issue I've been having and thought this post would be a good place to brain-dump.
I have an SSIS package which pulls data from Oracle 10g to SS2005 9.00.5000 on Windows2003/XP.
I have eight different Data Source tasks pointing to the same View in Oracle DB which all run essentially the same query but with different WHERE clauses pointing to different tables within SS2005 instance.
One of the DS Tasks(only) is failing after pulling several thousand rows, the same number of rows each time and only this one task. The data are transmitted and arrives in the destination tables but then half-way through the DS task just falls over with the following error. I know there are more rows available and not all the data is pulled because when I query that View using Oracle SQL Developer I can see all rows from the Oracle source no problem:
SSIS Error Code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED. The PrimeOutput method on component "<component name> (1) returned error code 0xC0202009.
I think this is a driver issue where the SSIS package is encountering a data-type conversion issue. The Source connection fails, NOT, the Destination.
I am using the Oracle Provider for OLEDB 188.8.131.52 driver (connecting to 10g Oracle).
Any similar incidents please feel free to post here. I'm trying an older driver and will post feedback here.
