You receive this error message on deploy:

Error creating DTS package for [tablename]
Cannot find folder "[folderpath]"

This error can occur in the following scenario:


  • tX application
  • Integration Services


SQL Server default instance:

  • Other timeXtender databases
  • MSDB where SSIS packages are stored

SQL Server named instance:

  • Repository
  • Staging
  • DWH


In the timeXtender repository settings, staging and data warehouse, use the following settings:

Server: ServerB\namedinstance
SIS Server Name: ServerB

This will make sure that the SSIS packages are loaded from the correct instance of MSDB.
