Manage an Azure-SSIS integration runtime

The Create an Azure-SSIS integration runtime article shows you how to create an Azure-SSIS integration runtime (IR) by using Azure Data Factory. This article provides information about reconfiguring an existing Azure-SSIS integration runtime.


This article applies to version 2 of Data Factory, which is currently in preview. If you are using version 1 of the Data Factory service, which is generally available (GA), see Data Factory version 1 documentation.

Data Factory UI

You can use Data Factory UI to stop, edit/reconfigure, or delete an Azure-SSIS IR.

  1. In the Data Factory UI, switch to the Edit tab. To launch Data Factory UI, click Author & Monitor on the home page of your data factory.
  2. In the left pane, click Connections.
  3. In the right pane, switch to the Integration Runtimes.
  4. You can use buttons in the Actions column to stop, edit, or delete the integration runtime. The Code button in the Actions column lets you view the JSON definition associated with the integration runtime.

    Actions for Azure SSIS IR

To reconfigure an Azure-SSIS IR

  1. Stop the integration runtime by clicking Stop in the Actions column. To refresh the list view, click Refresh on the toolbar. After the IR is stopped, you see that the first action lets you start the IR.

  2. Edit/reconfigure IR by clicking Edit button in the Actions column. In the Integration Runtime Setup window, change settings (for example, size of the node, number of nodes, or maximum parallel executions per node).
  3. To restart the IR, click Start button in the Actions column.

Azure PowerShell

After you provision and start an instance of Azure-SSIS integration runtime, you can reconfigure it by running a sequence of Stop - Set - Start PowerShell cmdlets consecutively. For example, the following PowerShell script changes the number of nodes allocated for the Azure-SSIS integration runtime instance to five.

Reconfigure an Azure-SSIS IR

  1. First, stop the Azure-SSIS integration runtime by using the Stop-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime cmdlet. This command releases all of its nodes and stops billing.

    Stop-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName 
  2. Next, reconfigure the Azure-SSIS IR by using the Set-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime cmdlet. The following sample command scales out an Azure-SSIS integration runtime to five nodes.

    Set-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -NodeCount 5
  3. Then, start the Azure-SSIS integration runtime by using the Start-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime cmdlet. This command allocates all of its nodes for running SSIS packages.

    Start-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName

Delete an Azure-SSIS IR

  1. First, list all existing Azure SSIS IRs under your data factory.

    Get-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -Status
  2. Next, stop all existing Azure SSIS IRs in your data factory.

    Stop-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -Force
  3. Next, remove all existing Azure SSIS IRs in your data factory one by one.

    Remove-AzureRmDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -Force
  4. Finally, remove your data factory.

    Remove-AzureRmDataFactoryV2 -Name $DataFactoryName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -Force
  5. If you had created a new resource group, remove the resource group.

    Remove-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name $ResourceGroupName -Force
