running jobs against replica databases

running jobs against replica databases

HI All,

i have a job that runs a number of ssis packages. at the moment it runs against the primary database however i want to run it against the read only db. the setup is sql server 2012 with always on. the connection string for the package is the listener so i need to add a step to force the job to check if its primary or secondary and then run the next step.

what i was thinking was a piece of sql like so:

DECLARE @preferredReplica int

SET @preferredReplica = (SELECT [master].sys.fn_hadr_backup_is_preferred_replica('DBNAME'))

IF (@preferredReplica = 1)
go to step 2.

question is how do i programmatically get the step to the next step?

so something like

IF (@preferredReplica = 1)
run package or don't run package

Thanks in advance.
