Great article.

Let me just add my thoughts on minimizing having to edit your dts packages when you move them to a different server.

One way to avoid the need to change all those server connections in dts packages when you move them to another server is to use UDLs. you can setup UDLs in a centtral repository, say a file server and access them from that location. just make sure that you check the "always read properties from UDL file" check box.

Thanks for the feedback. UDL's are handy, not just for DTS packages. Every little bit helps later on.

Just remember that UDLs are only usefull in SQL 2000 because in SQL 7.0 they where consumed at design-time not run-time.

Having experienced migrating a Data Warehouse from SQL 7.0 to SQL 2000 (a MUST, believe me!), I discovered some very interesting issues with the DTS packages. You will discover that if you attempt to migrate DTS packages from one SQL2000 server to another, you will NOT be able to edit or delete the DTS packages if the new server has a different name....Seems that rather than embed Local in the msdb entries, it hard codes the server names into the entries...Not pretty.

Does this VB script to move DTS, moves owner id along with the package, because when I use save as
use my userid, and then the developer cannot use it.
Thanks

Yes, it does. Anything that is part of the package gets moved.

No way to establish a temporary connection over a VPN? You can export to COM files, copy them to the other server that way. Or even export as VB code and run that against the new server. Other than that...you could BCP out the tables involved, BCP back in on the other server.

What platform do you code this in? I'm doing a project for school where I have to copy info from one server to another. Also does there need to be a main routine to pass the values through the function(i.e. Destination Server)?

Personally I find copying the entries in the sysdtspackages table a lot easier, as described at http://www.sqldts.com/?204
