Application.ExistsOnDtsServer Method

Returns a Boolean that indicates whether the specified package already exists on the Integration Services service.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS (in microsoft.sqlserver.manageddts.dll)

Public Function ExistsOnDtsServer ( _
	sPackagePath As String, _
	sServerName As String _
) As Boolean
public boolean ExistsOnDtsServer (
	String sPackagePath, 
	String sServerName
public function ExistsOnDtsServer (
	sPackagePath : String, 
	sServerName : String
) : boolean



The fully qualified path of the package.


The name of the server to search for the package.

Return Value

true if the package specified by sPackagePath exists on the server named by sServerName; otherwise, false.

The following code example shows a package being saved to the File System under the parent folder, myFolder2. The example then checks if the package was saved by querying using the ExistsOnDtsServer method.

Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
            ' The variable pkg points to the location
            ' of the ExecuteProcess package sample 
            ' that is installed with the SSIS samples.
            Dim pkg As String =  "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx" 
            Dim app As Application =  New Application() 
            Dim p As Package =  app.LoadPackage(pkg,Nothing) 
            ' Save the package under myFolder which is found under the 
            ' File System folder on the DTS Service
            app.SaveToDtsServer(p, Nothing, "File System\myFolder2", "yourserver")
            ' Verify that the package was saved by 
            ' using ExistsOnDtsServer.
            Dim packageExists As Boolean =  app.ExistsOnDtsServer("File System\myFolder", "yourserver") 
            Console.WriteLine("Package exists? " + packageExists)
End Sub

Sample Output:

Folder exists? True

Package exists? True

Folder exists? False
