  • The installation of Integration Services is damaged.

  • The service account that was specified for the Integration Services service does not have the required level of permissions.

  • Re-run Setup to repair the damaged installation of Integration Services.

  • Use SQL Server Configuration Manager, a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in, to select a different service account for the Integration Services service. If you do not change the default value, the Integration Services service runs under the Network Service account.
