SYMPTOMS

When you use the Web Service task in a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) package, you notice that a time-out setting is not available for the Web Service task. The Web Service task will time out after 100 seconds automatically. You also cannot use the time-out setting for the HTTP connection that uses by the Web Service task to control when the Web Service task times out.

RESOLUTION

Service pack information

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for SQL Server 2005. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Cumulative update information

The fix for this issue was first released in Cumulative Update 10. For more information about how to obtain this cumulative update package for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
956854 Cumulative update package 10 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2
Note Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release. Microsoft recommends that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
937137 The SQL Server 2005 builds that were released after SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 was released
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 hotfixes are created for specific SQL Server service packs. You must apply a SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 hotfix to an installation of SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2. By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, write custom code to programmatically interface with a Web Service. You can use the code in an SSIS Script task. In the code, you can manually set a time-out setting by using the WebClientProtocol.Timeout property. For more information about the WebClientProtocol.Timeout Property, visit the following Microsoft Developer Network (MDSN) Web site:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.services.protocols.webclientprotocol.timeout.aspx

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3.

MORE INFORMATION

How to control a time-out setting for a Web Service task after you apply this hotfix

After you apply cumulative update package 10 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, you can use the time-out setting for the HTTP connection that is used by the Web Service task to control when the Web Service task times out. The Web Service task will inherit the time-out setting of the HTTP connection. However, you must set the time-out setting to a number that is larger than 100. You must do this because the existing SQL Server 2005 Integration Services design depends on the 100-second time-out behavior that exists before this hotfix is applied. For example, if you set the time-out setting for the HTTP connection to 30, the Web Service task will not time out at 30 seconds. Instead, the Web Service task will time out at 100 seconds. You can set the time-out setting to a value that is larger than 100 seconds to accommodate a slow Web Service task method.

Note The maximum value that you can use for an HTTP connection time-out setting is 300 seconds.

This behavior is also fixed in Microsoft SQL Server 2008. In SQL Server 2008, there is no restriction on the HTTP connection time-out values. You can specify a number from 0 to 300 for the HTTP connection to control the time-out value for the Web Service task.
