How to: Deploy Packages to SQL Server

This procedure describes how to install SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) packages to an instance of SQL Server, using the Package Installation Wizard.

Before you can run the Package Installation Wizard you must copy the deployment folder, which was created when you built a deployment utility, to the target computer. For more information, see Creating a Deployment Utility.

To become better acquainted with the concepts explained in this section, see Deploying Packages Tutorial.

  1. Open the deployment folder on the target computer.

  2. Double-click the manifest file, <project name>.SSISDeploymentManifest, to start the Package Installation Wizard.

  3. On the Deploy SSIS Packages page, select the SQL Server deployment option.

  4. Optionally, select Validate packages after installation to validate packages after they are installed on the target server.

  5. On the Specify Target SQL Server page, specify the instance of SQL Server to install the packages to and select an authentication mode. If you select SQL Server Authentication, you must provide a user name and a password.

  6. On the Select Installation Folder page, specify the folder in the file system for the package dependencies that will be installed.

  7. If the package includes configurations, you can edit configurations by updating values in the Value list on the Configure Packages page.

  8. If you elected to validate packages after installation, view the validation results of the deployed packages.
