short question, is there a problem while trying to save a SSIS Package from the export wizard when the management studio is version 2016 and the SQL server is version 2014?

Errormessage is:

In SQL Server Express, Web, or Workgroup, you can run the package that the Import and Export Wizard creates, but cannot save it. To save packages that the wizard creates, you must upgrade to SQL Server Standard, Enterprise, Developer or Evaluation.

SSMS Version: 13.0.15600.2 SQL Server Version: 12.0.4416.0

License Information via:

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')

Output:

12.0.4416.0, SP1, Enterprise Edition: Core-based Licensing (64-bit)

If I try the same on the server, with ssms 12.0.4416.0, there isn't any problem.

Thank you in advance.

  1. SSMS can only connect to SQL Server 2016 Integrated Services (SSIS 2016) instances. There is a known compatibility limitation with SQL Server Integration Services that prevents connecting to previous versions. As a workaround for this problem, you can connect to your SQL Server Integration Service instance by using the SSMS release aligned with your SSIS instance.
