To run the SSIS Package Upgrade Wizard

Options

Update connection strings to use new provider names
Update the connection strings to use the names for the following providers for the current release of Integration Services :

  • OLE DB Provider for Analysis Services

  • SQL Server Native Client

    The SSIS Package Upgrade Wizard updates only connection strings that are stored in connection managers. The wizard does not update connection strings that are constructed dynamically by using the Integration Services expression language, or by using code in a Script task.

    Validate upgrade packages
    Validate the upgrade packages and save only those upgrade packages that pass validation.

    If you do not select this option, the wizard will not validate upgrade packages. Therefore, the wizard will save all upgrade packages, regardless of whether the packages are valid or not. The wizard saves upgrade packages to the destination that is specified on the SelectDestination Location page of the wizard.

    Validation adds time to the upgrade process. We recommend that you do not select this option for large packages that are likely to be upgraded successfully.

    Ignore Configurations
    Does not load package configurations during the package upgrade. Selecting this option reduces the time required to upgrade the package.
