SSIS Integration Services, pull from different SQL Server, insert/update nightly on custom table

I am new to integration services, and would like to setup a nightly task that references a view on a different SQL server on my network. I want to insert/update information into a custom student table that would store account numbers from another SQL box. I am confused on the control flow and data flow parts of this task.

I created a control flow of: Data Flow Task and then went into the properties of it. From the data properties, I created a OLE DB Source and another OLE DB Source, but what am confused on is my inner join. I am trying to map to the Copos Server, but since it is on a different server, I am getting errors on adding the linked server when I try and click mappings. Do I have to add a linked Server when the Source server is under the Connection Manager?

Should I get going about this another way? Should I be using the Data Flow Transformations of Merge or a Merge Join?

so forgetting about SSIS for a minute - Are you saying you need to a SELECT from a table on Server1 and then INNER to a second table on Server2?

I want to read a view from Server 1 and then do a inner join on the update statement for Server 2. The view does not have the same personid to match the personid on Server2. Thats why I have to do a inner join.

So you need to do something in SSIS that mimics the below SQL pseudo code?

UPDATE std_1
SET std_1.AccountNumber = std_2.AccountNumber
FROM Server1.Student std_1
JOIN Server2.Student std_2
ON std_2.StudentID = std_1.StudentID

You may be able to user a Merge Join as outlined in this article

Change the sources to be OLEDB sources as opposed to Flat File sources
