Choose Destination Location (DTS Package Migration Wizard)

Use the Choose Destination Location page to specify the destination to migrate packages to.


After migrating packages from within Management Studio, connect to the local instance of Integration Services in Object Explorer to see the migrated packages. If you selected SQL Server as the destination, the migrated packages will be visible under the MSDB node. If you selected a file system folder as the destination, you can right-click the File System node and select Import Package to display the migrated packages. Packages migrated from within BI Development Studio are saved to the file system folder that you specified and added to the open project under the SSIS Packages node.
