Due to unicode "upgrade", I'm looking at redoing about 20 packages. I use the wizard to generate the package. This is where I choose to encrypt sensitive data with a package password. Once it's done, sometimes I need to add a step or two so then I reset the sql connection password (click save), set encryption on the package to password and type the password again. Then, I setup the SQL AGent job in which I have to type the package password and then I have to click on the data sources and for the SQL connection I enter ;password=myserverpassword. Of course, sometimes there's a typo or something does not register right and the job fails when it runs, so I have to go back into package and double check sql connection password and password encryption password (whew).
To redo these, what is the best method with encryption or is there something else?
