Hi All,

I am new to DTS as well as DB migration. I need to import around 150 DTS packages stored in the database from an old server which has SQL Server 2000 to the new server which has SQL Server 2008. I need to keep the DTS packages intact and store them somewhere on the new server, either within MSDB or File System. I do not want to convert the DTS packages into SSIS packages as testing and debugging each package will be too much effort. The idea is to run them using the dtexec.exe utility, through scheduled SQL Server Agent Jobs which I will be importing from the old server.

Here's what I have tried:

I tried importing the DTS packages using the migration wizard, but this converts them into SSIS packages which doesn't serve the purpose.

The other option that I see in Object Explorer on right clicking Management-->Legacy-->Data Transformation Services is "Import Package File" which gives me option to browse for .DTS files but since the DTS packages are stored in the DB on the old server I don't know how efficiently can I use this feature. Opening each package and saving as DTS file and then importing each .DTS file one by one seems like too much effort.


Any suggestions are welcome.

Never mind Guys! I found the solution myself at http://www.sqldts.com/204.aspx
Just tested it. It works like a charm even with SQL Server 2008!!
