we have a cluster set up with two nodes, installed itegration services on both nodes. When the cluster fails over integration services packages are not available and the msdb database is not available which is where the packages are stored.
Can anyone tell me how to set this up so integration services is always available.

Thanks

Here are the steps to cluster SSIS:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms345193.aspx

You do not rally have to cluster SSIS to get this to work. The main points are these:

Now you must modify the location and the content of the service configuration file so that both the configuration file and the package store are available to all nodes in the case of a failover. Locate the configuration file at %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\90\DTS\Binn\MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml. Copy it to the shared disk.

Create a new folder named Packages on the shared disk. Grant List Folders and Write permissions on the new folder to the built-in Users group.

Open the configuration file from the shared disk in a text or XML editor. Change the value of the ServerName element to the name of the virtual SQL Server which is in the same group.

Change the value of the StorePath element to the fully-qualified path of the Packages folder created on the shared disk in a previous step.

Update the value of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSDTS\ServiceConfigFile in the Registry to the fully-qualified path and filename of the service configuration file on the shared disk.
