I need help with an error i get while executing a stored proc in SQL server 2012

Hi experts,
I get the following error when running a stored procedure in SQL Server 2012.  How can I fix it?  :

An error occurred while running the SSIS.
SQL Server blocked access to procedure 'sys.xp_cmdshell' of component 'xp_cmdshell' because this component is turned off as part of the security configuration for this server. A system administrator can enable the use of 'xp_cmdshell' by using sp_configure. For more information about enabling 'xp_cmdshell', see "Surface Area Configuration" in SQL Server Books Online.


Thanks in advance,
mrotor
