I’d really like to know what most ppl are using and which offers them the most flexibility. Also if you have two instances on the same server that run the same process but from diff sources to diff destinations.

I guess im needing someone to explain to me in layman’s terms how the XML and Environmental Variable config works. There is a lot of stuff online and I’m sort of coming to grips with it but it still feels rather fuzzy.

It seems to be a heavy subject and I'm still fairly new to the whole thing but, for what it's worth, I'm using xml files.

I've got one server and I'm trying to create multiple environments within it, so I use a parent package, with an xml configuration file. This lets me define variables that are specific to the environment (PROD, TEST, DEV, etc.). I can use variables to define the locations and names of child packages, meaning that I can switch between each environment just by changing the xml config file the parent package is fed.

With environment variables, I only have one environment, so I couldn't manage this flexibility.

Hope this helps

I use XML configurations...They are very flexible and easy to manage...I store the configurations in variables and store these variables in xml config files...so when I change the environment, I just modify the values of variables in xml file...

Since, the path of the source and destination is different, you have to opt .. package configuration wizard to create XML configuration.

Using DTSconfig option you can deploy your package as a file system one or in sql server.
