  • Some questions on your article.

     

    If you create a generic SQL ID for the developers, how do you know who changed what.

    Now that they all have the same ID. It makes is impossible to specify which devleper gets DBO rights to there DB they are working on.

    Did you encounter any of these issues and how did you overcome it?

  • My experience with using sp_reassign_dtspackageowner in a Windows authentication mode environment is that once a developer saves a change to the package, the package reverts back to the original owner.

  • i have imported a DTS package from one sql server to another. the source server uses windows authentication and the destination uses sql authentication.

    when i transferred the package, the owner id in the destination still shows the windows id of that of source server login. due to this i believe i am unable to edit it.

    any suggestion..on how i can edit and save it.

    thanks

  • Have you tried to edit and save it?  How about resaving package with another name?

  • good article; but sometimes DTS packages seem more "mystic" than this... scheduling, security context, proxy accounts, service accounts... thank you Bill Gates... unfortunately, it doesn't seem that SSIS is any better.  But, thanks for repeating the article... good job.

  • I really disagree that SQL authentication is better than Windows - I can make a laundry list as to why, but I don't have the time. I just can't imagine someone advocating Mixed Mode or SQL authentication.

    I'm wondering the same thing is there some SQL/stored procedure that can be run on the database to get a history of who made the change.
