Enterprise Evaluation Edition SSIS/BIDS/DTS

Enterprise Evaluation Edition SSIS/BIDS/DTS

Enterprise Evaluation Edition SSIS/BIDS/DTS

I am evaluating SQL Server 2005 to use on a project that needs connectivity to an AS400/Iseries.

My installed Enterprise Evaluation Edition doesn't want to talk to the AS400 so I've tried to load the DTS backward compatibility msi.  I've run the install but I can't find it within SQL Server 2005's legacy tree.  

Am I looking in the right place?
Does the DTS backward compatibility install work with the evaluation version?

I need to be sure I can talk to the AS400 before I recommend we buy SQL Server 2005.

Dazed and confused

RE: Enterprise Evaluation Edition SSIS/BIDS/DTS

I'm not sure why you need DTS to talk to an AS400.  All you should need is an OLEDB/ODBC driver to be used in SSIS.

RE: Enterprise Evaluation Edition SSIS/BIDS/DTS

In order to talk to the AS/400 you will need to install the AS/400 drivers on both your workstation and the SQL Server.

MCSA (2003) / MCDBA (SQL 2000)
MCTS (SQL 2005 / Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0: Configuration / Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007: Configuration)
MCITP Database Administrator (SQL 2005) / Database Developer (SQL 2005)
