  • Interesting QOTD.

  • If you have multiple instances of SQL Server, then you need a <ServerName> node that describes each instance. I am not sure the question makes this clear.

    If you use FineBuild to install your instances, then this work is done for you automatically.

    Also, if you install a SQL cluster and are certain you will only ever have one SQL instance on the cluster it is safe to setup SSIS as a cluster. If you want a SSIS cluster, use the parameter /SetupSSISCluster:Yes and FineBuild will build the SSIS cluster, setup a Package Store folder on a shared drive, and update MsDtsSrvr.ini to allow SSIS to recognise both the shared msdb database and the shared package store folder.

  • Got to learn something, I am yet to explorer SSIS settings may be I will understand it clearly when I get the time to learn SSIS in detail...

  • As I work in a shop with multiple DBA's, I don't always get to "fiddle" with the configuration. Definitely learned something today. Thanks for the question.

  • Great question.


  • I can tell you from personal experience, in an environment where we are moving to multiple instances on huge workhorse cluster systems, that this is a critical thing to know. Integration Services won't work properly if you need to use the MSDB portion of IS storage. That said, if you keep packages in the file system and only use SQL Agent to run them as jobs, you don't even need Integration Services. You can supply all of the detail in the job creation to run the package without use of Integration Services (which is the preferred method at our shop, though not always possible with third party apps, thus the criticality of today's question).

  • Great question rfr.

    Been looking forward to it since you posted that you submitted a question.

    I was not disapointed.

  • good question

  • Great question. The referenced article has a really good overview of how this all hangs together, too. Definitely learned something today!

  • I had no idea but made a lucky guess based on the answer that looked like it might be correct.

  • Great question, caught me on this one. But now I know better.:-)
