I'm not an expert in SSiS.  I have a 2008 R2 SQL Server and the Microsoft BPA recommends moving the SYSSSISLOG table from its default database, MSDB, to its own database.  However, I cannot find a "hold your hand" example of how to move it after searching for a few hours now.

Any tips would be appreciated!

"That table is pointed at using a Connection Manager. Simply change the server & database that that Connection Manager is pointing to."

Thanks for the link.  I found that one earlier and tried to decipher the connection manager, but I must be dense when it comes to the connection manager.  I have not found how to configure the connection manager to accomplish this.  The server in question is being accessed by an ASP.NET application.  Do I need to modify the web.config?

Thanks for your tips.

sure.. this is how a connection manager looks like the attached..

see a small intro at http://dataintegrity.wordpress.com/2009/09/21/ssisintr/

you have to turn on the option "SSIS log provider for SQL Server" for logging" for logging to happen. In the connection manager for logging, give another database name and the SYSSSISLOG will written to that database.

Thanks for providing a screenshot.  I guess this is my first problem.  I cannot find any method of launching the connection manager.  I've searched both server and clients for a way to pop up the screen you provided.  Maybe connection manager was not installed?  My work location blocks wordpress.com blogs (unfortunately) and so I'll have to check out your link from home tonight.

Thanks again for your input.  I'm going to accept your answer as the solution after finding the following Microsoft page:


I was trying to comply with the Best Practices Analyzer, but I have confirmed we're not using this feature.  At least I now understand the connection manager and where it comes from.
