Creating SQL Maintenance Plans from SSIS Package

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I created an SSIS Package in Visual Studio, and saved a copy of the package on my local SQL Server as an MSDB Maintenance Plan.  When I open up the SQL Management Studio, I have to connect using the 'Integration Services' Server Type to see the package in Maintenance Plans.  But, I don't know how to migrate the plan so I can see it in 'Management/Maintenance Plans' on the Server so I can schedule it.  How do I do this?  

FYI, I can create a job with the package and schedule it that way, but I need to do it as a MP.

Lets establish if sql considers it an MP first.
If you run this query against MSDB - do you see your package there?
SELECT *  FROM [msdb].[dbo].[sysdbmaintplans]

the table is actually 'sysdtspackages' (there's also a 'sysdtslog90'), but there are no rows in the table.  I can see it when I look at the tree view in Integration Services.  I was able to create a job, and an MP that refers to the job.  

From my research, it seems I'm unable to create an editable Maintenance Plan.  If that's the case, I can live with it.

You're right, sql2005 had the 90 suffix to denote the version number
