I am trying to deploy a set of cubes and I am getting this message "The top level folder "MSDB" is not found". I have modified the MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml file with the server\instance name. In this case, this server had SQL 2005 on it and when I went to install SQL Server 2012 I could not get the default instance of SQL to install. So the instance name is MyServerName\SQL2012. This is name I used in the MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml file.  So there is no default SQL instance on this server. What can I try to get the cubes to deploy?

Now this gets stranger. When I connect to SSIS there is no File System or MSBD under packages. When I installed SSIS it says it has completed successfully.

I was able to get a little further by uninstalling SSIS for SQL Server 2005. However, now when I go into SSIS for SQL Server 2012 I am greeted with the message that "The SQL Server instance specified in the SSIS configuration file is not present" Now the message is correct in that there is no default SQL instance on this server but I did change the configuration as below. What msut I do to get SSIS to work on this server?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<DtsServiceConfiguration xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"

xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
 

<StopExecutingPackagesOnShutdown>true</StopExecutingPackagesOnShutdown>
  <TopLevelFolders>
    <Folder xsi:type="SqlServerFolder">
      <Name>MSDB</Name>
      <ServerName>.</ServerName>
    </Folder>
    <Folder xsi:type="SqlServerFolder">
      <Name>MSDB</Name>
      <ServerName>MYSERVER\SQL2012</ServerName>
    </Folder>
    <Folder xsi:type="FileSystemFolder">
      <Name>File System</Name>
      <StorePath>..\Packages</StorePath>
    </Folder>
  </TopLevelFolders>  
</DtsServiceConfiguration>

Carrying on with this, I changed the account that was running SSIS to a domain account that was a local admin on this server. After doing this I was able to deploy my cubes.
