More on Package Configurations

Douglas Laudenschlager from the SSIS documentation team has posted an excellent article to his unofficial SSIS blog on how package configurations are applied in SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 Integration services. Check it out here.

I don’t often post on my blog simply to reference someone else’s original work, but I wanted to do it today because:

  • Package configurations are a vitally important feature that are often misunderstood.
  • The manner in which configurations are applied has changed between SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008.
  • These changes can cause changes in package behavior when executing packages with specific DTEXEC options

So if you are moving from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008, definitely be sure to read about these changes.

My name is Matthew Roche, and I am a Senior Program Manager with the SQL Server product group at Microsoft. I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
