I'm still fumbling with SSIS so please bear with me.
I have four SSIS packages (using SQL ‘08) that need to be executed simultaneously. I thought I could use the Execute Package Task to run all four but it looks like I can only execute one package at a time with this … is there a better task to use or maybe a better way to use this task? I don't want to create four jobs to run each package - I'd like to create one job that runs one package, which executes the four packages.
So ... what is the best way to execute all four packages at one time?
You can use 4 Execute Package Tasks, each one containing one packages. And make sure all 4 Execute Package Tasks run in Parallel.
Normally they run in parallel.
