Reconfigure an Azure-SSIS integration runtime

The Create an Azure-SSIS integration runtime article shows you how to create an Azure-SSIS integration runtime 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.

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 5.

Stop Azure-SSIS IR

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 

Reconfigure Azure-SSIS IR

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

Start Azure-SSIS IR

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
