No "maintenance" folder in SQL management studio

hi all,

I've just built a new SQL server running windows 2008 server and SQL 2005.  I upgraded to service pack 3 and moved my database over to the new server fine but I'm now trying to set up maintenance plans and the folder is missing.  I've looked around and everything I can find on this problem seems to be about people running SQL express but this is the full SQL server.  The SQL server agent service is running and I went ahead are reinstalled the Integration Services but still no go.

Any Ideas where I go next?

Do you see the folder Management in Object explorer ?
If you do, do you see SQL Server Logs, DTC, and Legacy, and it's only the Maintenance Plans folder that's missing ?

In Management Studio, can you click on Help, and then About, and take a print screen.
It sounds like it's management studio express.

Are the databases running in compatability level of SQL2000
Can you check the folders under Legacy ?

Here you go... As you can see my old (now DR) server has the folder on the same management studio install but the new server does not.  

Humpdy,

Yes they are running in compatablility mode 80 but the DR environment is as well and that works fine.

Yes and when I ran
SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')

it returns SP3.

That is interesting, thing is this is a brand new install.  I just backed up the database and used it to create a new one on this server.  No upgrade at all.  Plus the  msdb.dbo.sysdtspackagefolders90 table they refer to doesn't even exist in the MSDB database.  Also I just checked widows update to make sure I got all the updates and it's showing SP3 needed.  I'm going to re-install that and see what happens.

The
Maintenance Plan Wizard (and the interface to plans from SMSS) is part of
SSIS. Install SSIS from the SQL Server CD and you should get it working.

Yes I can, I'm using management studio from my workstation and can see it fine.  I can connect to the old server and see the folder, and the new server without the folder at the same time.

so weird !!
found this on google.

I found a solution
use msdb
Verify that the folder is missing:
exec sp_executesql N'exec [msdb].[dbo].[sp_dts_getfolder] @P1, @P2',N'@P1
nvarchar(17),@P2 uniqueidentifier',N'Maintenance
Plans','00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'

Add the folder if missing:
exec sp_dts_addfolder '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000','Maintenance
Plans','08AA12D5-8F98-4DAB-A4FC-980B150A5DC8'

I'll check that out after I finish the re-install of SP3. I didn't build the server or do the original SQL install, I'm wondering if maybe the SSIS was installed AFTER sp3 was applied...
