Unanswered: DTS Global Variables Behaviour with > 1 User
I have a DTS package that users of the database can run which basically acts like a 'live update' (as the database is based on a values produced from another system) and it takes roughly 30 or so seconds to run...
The dts package is not going to have a particularly large hit rate but i am interested in knowing what will happen if a user (user 1) attempts to run the package when it is in already in use by another user (user 2) ?
The dts package is from a sp using the dtsrun utility (passes in global variables).
I know that a second DTS will start before the first has finished but what i am not sure about is what will happen to the Global Variables when the second DTS package starts - i.e. will starting a second instance of the package with different variables have an effect on the first DTS's global variables while it is running?
