Hi there,

I have setup serveral maintenance plans on my design server and I now want to roll them out to the development, test, production servers.

Can I export the maintenance plan and then import it to another server?

check this out http://sqlserver-qa.net/blogs/tools/archive/2007/10/15/copy-db-maint-plans.aspx

All the maintenance plans are stored in MSDB, just like most SSIS packages are. Just export them from there and import to you desired server

In SQL Server 2005 you can import/export maintenance plans through SSIS (SQL Server Integration Services) which is the tool that SQL is using to create maintenance plans. Connect to integration services, look for the packages that are stored in MSDB and you should be able to browse to your maintenance plan and select import/export.
