DTS Packages
Identify all packages to migrate
Manually "Save As" packages to NEW server
Update any affected pointers

Scheduled Jobs
Identify all Jobs to be migrated
Copy jobs to New Server
DO NOT COPY JOBS THAT RUN DTS PACKAGES. Reshedule packages instead
Update any affected pointers



Sorry for digging up an old thread but can I ask why it is necessary to reschedule DTS package jobs rather than run the scripted job on new migration instance?

Thanks

when you upload a DTS package, it gets given a GUID. The jobs refer to this GUID, which will be different on the new server, as it is a 'new' package. one workaround is to edit the job to refer to the dts name instead of Id, but I think it is easier to re-schedule
