SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 Integration Services (SSIS) package that contains a data flow task.
  • You use the Unpivot transformation in the data flow task.
  • You run the SSIS package several times with the same input data.
In this scenario, the SSIS package may produce inconsistent results.

Note If you reduce the value of the DefaultBufferMaxRows property and the DefaultBufferSize property, this issue may occur more frequently.
