Migrated stored SSIS packages in msdb from SQL 2005 to 2012

Migrated stored SSIS packages in msdb from SQL 2005 to 2012

We have a few SSIS packages that were setup in the msdb database. There are no package files as they were created by someone else. I've tried the 2012 upgrade advisor on our new SQL 2012 server but supposedly to check for any issues, it requires that SQL 2005 SSIS be installed on the new server, which we can't do.

So, if we don't have the source files to open in Visual Studio then save as a new version, can we not migrate what's in MSDB to sql 2012? I'm confused if it's in the database and does not rely on any files, why it can't just be migrated.

RE: Migrated stored SSIS packages in msdb from SQL 2005 to 2012

I would export those packages to filesystem and then use the normal upgrade advisor - that should not require the old 2005 SSIS install

Once upgraded you may or not move them up to the msdb

yep - use SSMS and choose the Integration Services type connection
From there, right click on a package and choose "Export"
Chnage options to file system and export to a file location
From there you can add existing item to a vis studio solution and go from there
