Azure Data Factory Self-hosted Integration Runtime Tutorial | Connect to private on-premises network

With Azure Data Factory Self-hosted integration runtime, you can now integrate your on-premise, virtual private network data sources as well as those which require your own drivers.

In this episode I give you introduction to what Self-hosted integration runtime is. How can you install it and leverage it to move data between different data sources and how can this service solve your other challenges like bring-your-own driver scenarios.

In this episodes live demo of
– Creating simulated private network environment for demo
– Testing connectivity and working with on-premise environment
– Installing tools on Integration Runtime virtual machine
– Installing Self-hosted Integration Runtime
– Pulling data from on-premises to the cloud end-2-end demo

  1. Świetny film, jak zwykle 🙂 fajnie jest wysyłać klientom anglojęzycznym tak porządne instrukcje stworzone przez Polaka !!! 🙂

    runtime environment cannot be found on the self hosted integration runtime is required for parsing or writing /orc files. make sure java runtime environment has been installed on the self hosted integration runtime.

  3. Hi Adam, this was wonderful session. thanks for creating this video. I have one question. If we create a self hosted IR for one ADF and we dont want to share it. rather update same IR for different ADF, is it possible if yes, then can you help me on that.

  4. Hi Adam, All your videos are very informative and very clear step by step explanation., If could create a video on – load data from access DB using Access dataset in azure ?

  5. Hi Adam, I copied the key and pasted into Microsoft Integration Runtime Configuration Manager but failed.
    When i looked into detail.It stated that it doesn't recognize vm with a private ip.

  6. This process is okay if you are doing it for few tables what if you have 7-8k tables in your on-prem database? How to automate this process for all tables in your on-prem database. Any inputs ?

  7. Is this service good enough to export 3-4 TB of data from On-prem to Azure Cloud Blob storage? Any inputs on performance part & time part ? Is there any limitation ?

  8. Hi Adam,

    Thanks for the detailed explanation. I am have a very simple scenario. I want to copy few files stored in FTP location to Azure Blob/File using ADF on daily basis.

    I don't have ownership of the FTP and I cannot install Self-hosted IR or another utility on this.

    FTP is in our corporate network and we can access it using Active Directory credentials. What is the best way to achieve this?

  9. Hi Adam, will the Self Hosted Integration Runtime work to connect SQL Server 2008? just wonder if it supports such an old version of SQL server. many thanks.

  10. Could you give some reply on how to proper use "Additional connection properties"
    I try to connect to an Oracle instance, and it work fine, however I am not sure, if the FailOver instance will be connected, in case of the primary node is down.
    I have looked into
    I understood simply to type property name as AlternateServers and value as (HostName=<secondary host>:PortNumber=<secondary port>:ServiceName=<secondary service name>) to make sure to go to the FailOver instance in case of the primary node is down. Could you properly make a video on this too? Cannot find any examples..

  11. Just a small query, can we deploy the data from our VM to the data factory if we have already installed the self hosted IR

  12. Many thanks Adam for such a wonderful content. Quick question – How can I choose between AutoResolve and Self Hosted IR to run my ADF pipeline? Looks like by default, ADF takes self hosted IR to run pipelines.

  13. Great video Adam. Any specific reason behind the consideration "Don't install it on the same machine as Power BI gateway". Infact we did it in production and facing issues for a week now. Any help on this would be appreciated @Adam Marczak – Azure for Everyone

  14. Hi Adam.. Thanks for the detailed explanation.
    I tried to simulate this by creating VNET, VM (not used your script) and tried to access my local machine (laptop as my on-prem) from VM created on azure.
    I am unable to ping my local machine from Azure VM. However, I am able to do the vice versa (able to ping azure VM from local machine).
    Any thoughts?


  15. Hi Mark! I have an ADF using a Execute SSIS Task. I want to use windows(domainuser1) authentication to access the on premise database from Azure ADF. I have tested connection using SSMS using domainuser1 and it works fine. However, it doesn't work when I used the Secret in SSIS package connection in Azure ADF. Appreciate your help. Thank you.

  16. Hi Adam, just wondering if there is a way for the Self Hosted IR to talk to a SQL MI and how should I go about this. Thanks for your videos, they are the first place I come looking for answers!
