Hello

thanks for the interesting article.
I started the procedure to install and activate DTS support on 2008 server, but even if I have
- Integration Services.
- Client Tools Backward Compatibility.
installed on my SQL2008, when I launch SQLServer2005_BC for my system I get the error
"Installation of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Backward compatibility
failed
because a higher version already exists on the machine. To proceed,
uninstall the higher version and then run Microsoft SQL Server 2005
Backward compatibility setup again."

How can I solve it?

Thanks

Paolo

Hi Paolo,

Did you look for SQL Server 2005 Backward Compatibility in Add/Remove Programs? If its there try unistalling it and then try your install again.

There is also an extra permissioning step required in order to be able to execute DTS packages in SQL 2008. All SQL Server logins which need to run a package need to be users in the msdb database with membership of one of the SSIS roles. We use db_ssisoperator.

Yes checked before posting. No prev installation. I googled about this issue but found no definitive post or article about it.

Thanks

Darren Green has created a wonderful tool which is free to use, it is calledDTSBackup . We have been using this tool for more than six years, for moving DTS packages from one system to another. This tool also enables to move the packages across different versions of SQL Server. We have used it on SQL Server 2000; SQL Server 2008 and between them.

The tool is very simple to use and it moves packages under few minutes. In our environment when we moved about 100 packages; about 20 them were large; it was completed under 5 minutes.

Enjoy

There is an excellent software that can convert DTS packages to SSIS packages from a company called pragmatic works. I have done this recently and it works. I had to do some code adjustments (cast and stuff) on one column only. Otherwise it worked superbly.

So now I do not have to worry about DTS packages anymore as they are depreceated by Microsoft.

The newer runtime dtexec.exe doesn't run DTS 2000 packages natively. It runs SSIS 2005/2008 packages with the [Execute DTS 2000 Package Task] embedded as a task in the control flow.

The easier runtime to run DTS 2000 packages is DTSRun.exe.
Which can be installed via the Backward Compatibility SQLServer2005_BC*.msi or from the latest feature pack download for SQL 2008.

You should also mention that DTS 2000 is deprecated, and might not be supported in future releases of SQL Server. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms403408.aspx
