Hi All,

We are using SSIS 2005. The SSIS packages are retriving the records from DB2 source tables to SQL server destination tables.

now the source team is planning to migrate their databases from DB2 to oracle. So we need to change the existing SSIS packages according to that (need to modify the DB2 source tables connection manager to oracle connection manager.

Can you please let me know what are all the modifications to be done in the ssis packages corresponds to this change. If you have any document you can share with me if possible.

It would be really helpful for us if you provide these details.

Thanks in Advance.

What source component do you use in your data flow? Is it OLEDB Source or ADO.NET Data Source?

Hello,

I believe Oracle can use OleDB. Also, I know Oracle has a .NET provider as well. I know it comes packaged with SSIS 2008 and I believe it comess with 2005 as well. If it doesn't, you can probably download Oracle's .NET provider from Oracle's site. Then, once you install the provider, it should show up as one of the providers in the Datareader Source Connection (2008 replaced this the ADO.NET source connection). You should then be able to replace all of your existing source connections with the DataReader source using the Oracle's provider.

One thing to keep in mind (I've seen this happen in conversions); when the files are converted from DB2 to Oracle, your DBAs may also update datatypes to the ones they feel are the most efficient in Oracle. This could be added work for you as you may have to perform data conversions in your package to compensate.

Thanks,

Strick
