Deploying SSIS packages with SQL Server Management Studio
By: Ray Barley
SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) can be used to deploy SSIS packages to SQL Server or to the Package Store.

As you can see there are two nodes under Stored Packages: File System and MSDB. File System is actually the package store with a default location in SQL Server 2005 of C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\DTS\Packages. MSDB is of course the MSDB database.
In the examples that follow we will deploy the CreateSalesForecastInput.dtsx package from its location in the project folder to the package store and the MSDB database.
