I made a practice problem for myself - Using SSIS, make a package to load data from text files located on a Server P, load these files into a table in Server Q. Can I also run this package from a third Server R ? Or should the package be run from Server Q itself because that is where the destination tables are.
Main task - It is easy to load it from my local machine. But, how do I load text files from a different server, i.e not on my system which has the SSIS ?
As long as the connections are defined using 'full' naming conventions (UNC paths for files and not localhost etc for the SQL Server instances), you shouldn't have any problems. Except for when the job is scheduled to run under SQL Agent - then you will have permissions problems on the file access because of the context in which SQL Agent runs (I'd say that this is FAQ #1 for SSIS forums).
