I want proper steps to configure package for environmental variable and deploy that package and run it on another machine so it will use config from environmental variable.

What tool you are using to design packages? SSIS 2008/2008R2/2012.

As per my experience you should always create environmental variables as System Variables.

First point to note is that they're called 'environment' variables, not environmental - these won't help us with climate change.

The link provided by Koen provides all the details - look for the parts which refer to 'indirect' configuration.


Help us to help you. For better, quicker and more-focused answers to your questions, consider following the advice in this link.

If the answer to your question can be found with a brief Google search, please perform the search yourself, rather than expecting one of the SSC members to do it for you.

Please surround any code or links you post with the appropriate IFCode formatting tags. It helps readability a lot.

One caution I want to throw out here - environment variables are NOT instance aware. That is if you have 2 (or more) instances of SQL Server on the same installation of windows, they will all share the environment variables. This one bit me when I took over some SSIS from a contractor and the QA and UAT instances were on the same windows server.

Another related issue is that you can't install multiple instances of SSIS on one server, so that one SSIS has to share QA and UAt as well.
