Critical Status - Database-Oriented Issues Plus

It seems that everything has a critical status, especially when it comes to databases and software development! Here's a place for listing issues and ideas relating to database and development issues. I'll list problems and ideas mainly related to SQL Server 2005. Post your thoughts, advice or complaints! Later this year will be the 25th anniversary of being in the trenches of the IT industry. I specialize in database applications development. I'd like to share my experiences with everyone and learn of those of others. You never stop learning.

A bit of SSIS confusion with server names

When registering a new Integration Service in SSMS, you're can only enter a server name. It won't register the instance. When you are importing/exporting a package to/from one instance to another, enter the server name AND instance in the server list even though it may only supply just the server name. Add the "\" and instance name to the server name as you would say registering a new server instance. You'll get an "OLE DB error 0x80004005 (Client unable to establish connection) occurred while enumerating packages" error. You're not able to log into the server because its name is incomplete.

i had found ONE listing that pointed to the correct resolution: Read down about midway to get the answer.
