The name of the parent folder.


The name of the existing folder.


The new name of the folder.


The name of the server where the folder is located.

The following code example creates a folder within the Integration Services services hierarchy, verifies that the folder has been created, renames it, verifies that the old name is still recognized as a folder, and then verifies whether the new folder name is found.

static void Main(string[] args)
            // Create a folder named myOldFolder.
            Application app = new Application();
            app.CreateFolderOnDtsServer(@"\File System\", "myOldFolder", "yourserver");

            // Verify that creation was successful.
            Boolean folderExists = app.FolderExistsOnDtsServer(@"File System\myOldFolder", "yourserver");
            Console.WriteLine("Folder exists? " + folderExists);

            // Rename myOldFolder to myNewFolder.
            app.RenameFolderOnDtsServer(@"File System", "myOldFolder", "myNewFolder", "yourserver");

            // Verify that the old folder still exists.
            folderExists = app.FolderExistsOnDtsServer(@"File System\myOldFolder", "yourserver");
            Console.WriteLine("Old, renamed folder exists? " + folderExists);

            // Verify that the folder exists with the new name. 
            folderExists = app.FolderExistsOnDtsServer(@"File System\myNewFolder", "yourserver");
            Console.WriteLine("New folder exists? " + folderExists);

Sample Output:

Folder exists? True

Old, renamed folder exists? False

New folder exists? True
