70-463 Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012

You are developing a project that contains multiple SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) packages. The packages will be deployed to the SSIS
catalog. One of the steps in each package accesses an FTP site to download sales transaction data.
You create project parameters to store the username and password that are used to access the FTP site.
You need to ensure that the username and password values are encrypted when they are deployed.
What should you do?
A. Set the Sensitive property of the parameters to True.
B. Set the Protection Level property of the package to EncryptSensitiveWithUserKey.
C. Change the parameters to package parameters.
D. Change the project to the Legacy Deployment model.

Correct Answer: A

Section: Volume A
Sensitive. If the value of this property is True, parameter values are encrypted in the catalog.

You develop a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package that imports SQL Azure data into a data warehouse every night.
The SQL Azure data contains many misspellings and variations of abbreviations. To import the data, a developer used the Fuzzy Lookup transformation
to choose the closest-matching string from a reference table of allowed values. The number of rows in the reference table is very large.
If no acceptable match is found, the Fuzzy Lookup transformation passes a null value.
The current setting for the Fuzzy Lookup similarity threshold is 0.50.
Many values are incorrectly matched.
You need to ensure that more accurate matches are made by the Fuzzy Lookup transformation without degrading performance.
What should you do?

A. Change the Exhaustive property to True.
B. Change the similarity threshold to 0.55.
C. Change the similarity threshold to 0.40.
D. Increase the maximum number of matches per lookup.

Correct Answer: B

Section: Volume A


You install a SQL Server database engine instance on a production server. A month later, you install SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).
You must develop an SSIS project and deploy it to the server by using the Project Deployment model.
Operations Log records that are outside the configured retention period must be cleaned automatically.
You need to create the SSIS catalog on the production server and ensure that the operations log cleaning requirement is met.
What should you do? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose all that apply.)
A. Enable XP Command Shell.
B. Enable CLR Integration.
C. Enable OLE Automation.
D. Start the SQL Server Browser service.
E. Enable Cross Database Ownership Chaining
F. Start the SQL Server Agent service
G. Enable Ad Hoc Remote Queries.

Correct Answer: BF

Section: Volume A


B: To create the SSISDB catalog in SQL Server Management Studio
1. Open SQL Server Management Studio.
2. Connect to the SQL Server Database Engine.
3. In Object Explorer, expand the server node, right-click the Integration Services Catalogs node, and then click Create Catalog.
4. Click Enable CLR Integration.
The catalog uses CLR stored procedures.
F: SSIS projects, packages, parameters, environments, and operational history are all stored in the SSISDB database so if you have hundreds of SSIS
packages or packages that run every few minutes you could see how the database storing all the historical information would grow exponentially.
Also included when you enable this feature is a SQL Server Agent Job called SSIS Server Maintenance job:



A SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package named DataFeed interacts with an external vendor data feed. The package is executed several
times a day, either as part of other packages’ control flow or by itself. The external data feed is unreliable because network failures and slow response
times are frequent. The package is currently deployed on the file system.
To analyze the reliability of the external data feed, you must collect execution data.
Every time the DataFeed package is executed, the following information must be logged:
Start Time
End Time
Execution Result

Execution Duration
You need to design a logging solution that meets the requirements by using the least amount of administrative and development effort.
Which three actions should you perform in sequence? (To answer, move the appropriate actions from the list of actions to the answer area and arrange
them in the correct order.)
Select and Place:


Correct Answer:


Section: Volume A

Box 1: Create a new project and add the package to the project.
SQL Server Integration Services includes log providers that you can use to implement logging in packages, containers, and tasks. With logging, you can
capture run-time information about a package, helping you audit and troubleshoot a package every time it is run. For example, a log can capture the
name of the operator who ran the package and the time the package began and finished.
Box 2: Deploy the project that contains the package to the SSIS catalog and execute the package on the server.
You deploy the Integration Services project to the Integration Services server.
Box 3: Query the catalog.executable_statistics view
Catalog.executable_statistics, but not Catalog.execution_data_statistics, include the required information: Start Time, End Time, Execution Result, and
Execution Duration.

A SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package on a computer is failing periodically in production. The package was created less than one year ago
and was deployed to the SSIS catalog.
Sometimes the package is started on a SQL Agent schedule; sometimes the package is started manually by an SSIS developer by using the Object
Explorer in SQL Server Management Studio.
You need to identify the authenticated user responsible for starting the package each time it failed in the past.
Where can you find this information?
A. the SQL Server Log
B. the SSISDB.[catalog].[executions] view
C. the SSISDB.[catalog].[event_messages] view
D. the SQL Agent Job History
E. the SQL Agent Error Log
