I thought of this as well, but you cannot set the CheckpointFileName property with package configurations. You'd have to add a variable and create an expression that would set this property using the value of that variable. The variable could then be set using configurations.
Hmm...I have to disagree with you on this. Though your alternative (assign the CheckpointFileName to a variable and use a package config to change the variable) works just fine, I was able to create a package configuration file that included the CheckpointFileName property and changed it directly.
CheckpointFileName and CheckpointUsage were second and third on the list of Properties in the Package Configuration Wizard. I checked CheckpointFileName and saved the configuration to XML. Editing the config file, I found entries for:
I edited this, changing the value of CheckpointFile.xml
. Then I executed the package in a way that forced it to fail. This caused it to create a checkpoint file, and it used the CheckpointFileTestMe.xml name. I also tested it with a different pathname, and that worked as well.
