Migrating SSIS packages from SQL 2005 server to new SQL 2012 server

Migrating SSIS packages from SQL 2005 server to new SQL 2012 server

(OP)
I exported the 3 packages that were setup in SQL 2005 and imported them into my new SQL 2012 server. The datasources on the package are still referencing the old server but I'm unable to edit them within the job in sql server. I don't have Visual Studio. Is that the only way to make a data source modification?

RE: Migrating SSIS packages from SQL 2005 server to new SQL 2012 server

If you are careful, you should be able to text-edit your .dtsx item and find the <DTS:ConnectionManager> entries, and make adjustments there. I haven't done this myself before, but if you make a copy for safety you should be able to recover if it doesn't work.

Never would have thought to do that. Edited it, and re-imported and it seems to have worked. Thx!
