Hi,
I have a package stored in the MSDB database which I now want to move and execute from the file system.
I connected to SSIS in management studio,
Right click on the package in MSDB
Select export package,
Enter a package path to a folder I have created,
Click OK
And I get the following message
msdb-export.pngI am expecting the dtsx package to be copied to the folder I have created.
Any guidance appreciated,
Thanks

Hi Surdra,
That does not resolve my issue unfortunately, also it is an abandoned question.

I have tried doing this on my windows 7 pro laptop and opened management studio as an administrator .
I   created  a folder c:\test on my local drive and tried to export the package from the MSDB database to this location and I got the following error

===================================

Cannot find folder "c:\test".


------------------------------
Program Location:

   at Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Application.ExistsOnSqlServer(String packagePath, String serverName, String serverUserName, String serverPassword)
   at Microsoft.DataTransformationServices.Controls.PackageLocationControl.SavePackage(Package package)
   at Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.ObjectExplorerUI.ExportPackageAction.OnSavePackage(Object sender, CancelEventArgs e)

===================================

Cannot find folder "c:\test".


------------------------------
Program Location:

   at Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper.ApplicationClass.ExistsOnSQLServer(String bstrPackagePath, String bstrServerName, String bstrServerUserName, String bstrServerPassword)
   at Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Application.ExistsOnSqlServer(String packagePath, String serverName, String serverUserName, String serverPassword)

Here is another attempt to extract a dtsx file from the msdb database on my windows 7 laptop
file transfer
Maybe I have misunderstood the functionality?
What I am expecting is the dtsx file of the File Watcher task to be copied to c:\test.
Is that a reasonable assumption?

It may seem weird but you need to select File System as Package Location.  It refers to the destination, not the source...

Surendra: please read questions properly before posting, that link you posted doesn't have any relation to this question.

is this sql server on your PC?

if not - you need full path  \\pcname, maybe create shared folder, etc.


also check if you have sql server permissions (for example SA, SSIS admin) and NTFS permissions on your PC

or ask DBA to get it for you

Thanks ValentinoV,
This is exactly the issue :-)
"It may seem weird but you need to select File System as Package Location.  It refers to the destination, not the source..."
I would never have "got" that...

Hi EugeneZ, thanks for your response,

Thanks Surendra for your initial response
