The Scenario is that I am deploying the SSIS packages from test network to production server. The architecture of my SSIS packages are that for each table I am having one package which pulls data from the oracle application and dumps to the sql server.

so for 20 tables I am having 20 packages. On top of these 20 packages I am having a master package which calls these 20 packages. I have enabled the package configuration for these 20 packages and is using XML configurations for creating the Config file. And then I am reusing the Config file in all the corresponding packages.

Then I deployed the packages and did file system installation lets say in C drive deploye folder. so c:/deploy will now have the config file along with all the packages.

Now we I changed the datasource in the config file and running each packages individually then they are referring the Config file from c:/deploy. But when I am running the master package then it is referring the Config file fro the Bin folder.

How can I configure the package such that the master package also refers the Config file fro c:/deploy folder. I cannot use environment variable on production server.

You could try to work with relative paths:

Setting up a SQL Agent job to run the master SSIS package may help. The job step configuration for an SSIS package includes a "Configurations" tab for defining which config file(s) to use.
