    Unanswered: Heavy Duty SSIS Job

    Hello all,

    I am task to do some research on creating a SQL Server agent jobs the
    encompasses 15 SSIS jobs that run at the same time, after its finish it will trigger the next set of jobs to run (8) at the same time, next 2 jobs, next 1, next 1 end SQL Server agent jobs.

    Managing 27 jobs is combersome, just running using 1 SQL agent job.

    Please advises.

    Thanking you in advance,

    Lystra

    i do not understand what the problem is.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    The problem is:

    Can I run all 27 in the same job.

    I would like the first 15 packages as step 1, step 2 is running 8 packages, step 3 would consist of 2 packages, and step 4, 5 would consist of 1 packages each.

    Can this be done.

    I tried setting up a job, I was only able to use 1 package at a time per step.

    Thanks

    can't you make jobs fire off other jobs as job steps?

    why can't we go with one SSIS\DTS thingy per job step?

    It's fine, but is that the best way to go, in my research I have come across the DTEXEC.exe, is it possible to run multiple packages simultaneously?

    dunno. try it and get back to us and let us know. I imagine the answer is yes but I just code these days and I do not spend so much time studying the internal nuts and bolts any more.

    Create one SSIS package and then use a combination of execute SSIS tasks and Sequence Containers to manage the workflow.

    Then schedule this singular package in the job.
