I'm trying to export a simple maintenance plan from an SQL Server instance.
I want to check the export into source control, and apply the exported maintenance plan to functionally identical instances.
When I try to connect to Integration Services on the Export target, I receive the following error:
Connecting to the Integration Services service on the computer "WEBSERVER" failed with the following error: The specified service does not exist as an installed service.
We chose to disable Integration Services on WEBSERVER because we use this box only for serving data to consumer applications. All data on WEBSERVER is replicated from a backend instance. Integration Services is used heavily for processing data on the backend instance.
Is there a documented way to export a maintenance plan without using Integration Services? Does Microsoft support it?
