    I am creating a test environment for our production server. The server has multiple databases.  I would like to bring all the DTS packages over.  Can I do this by restoring our production MSDB database into the test environment?


    Thanx for the input,

    Restoring the MSDB database will restore all the DTS packages, SQL Agent Jobs, Backup history, etc...

    Take a look at DTSBackup2000 over at

    They also list a couple of other methods for moving packages in the FAQ section.

    Bear in mind that depending on what your packages do and how they are configured, you might need to manually edit each package to change connection details.
