I am running an stored proc using execute sql task. The package is set to run automatically using sql Agent. Sometimes I see query timeout error wen the package is run. How do I set the query time out? On the properties window It show 0 for timeout.

I am also running another sproc inside a script task (c# script) in the same package. How do I set the query time out for running this sproc in the script task?

Thanks.

There are three timeouts:

General
Connect
Command

General should be the overall timeout for the connection.  Connect should be just for the connection.  If the connection hasn't been established by the timeout (or the default), it will stop trying to connect.  Command timeout is likely the timeout SSIS will wait for a command to complete

Switch to "Data Flow" tab (vs. Control Flow) and select the DataReader source. The Properties window will show CommandTimeout at the very top; it is set to 30 seconds by default. .
