Executing SSIS Package with DTEXEC

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-10
With SQL 2005 I was able to develop a Batch File that did some file manipulation and then executed a SSIS package. The code to execute the SSIS package is: DTEXEC.EXE /De Password /F File path to package.dtsx

My Server was upgrade to SQL 2008 and now the Batch will still manipulate my files however, it will NOT execute the SSIS package.

Any ideas? Thanks Much

Thanks for the link. The code for a bat in the link is:
dtexec /F "%OLDDIR%\MyPackageName.dtsx

What is the purpose of the set OLDDIR=%CD% ? Do you need to have it?

Is this an interactive batch job, or is this running under the agents security context?  If it is interactive you will have to add the the needed lauch permissions to DCOM config. Also ensure the user or service account is in the db_dtsoperator role.

it's used to get dinamically the path of the package.
You cannot store the packages insider SSIS Server?
