I installed a new version (2008 to 2012) of SQL Server and have been having issues since the beginning. Its on Windows 212 Server VM and it has been causing problems with my permissions since day 1. I configured Mixed mode for authentication and when I open the Database Engine with 'sa' everything is fine. When I try to open SSIS from management studio it doesnt give me the option of opening in SQL auth just windows auth and it gives me an error saying "Access is denied". The same thing happens with SSAS. I wanted to import some of the SSIS packages over to the upgraded server but it seems like I dont have any pernmissions, even though my login is an Admin on the server. Can some let me know what to do cause this has been causing a big problem for me.
