Using SSIS on a Named Instance - Updating MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml

    I've read how I need to update MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml to replace "." with the name of my named instance. For example, in the script below I replaced "." with "MYSERVERNAMEMYINSTANCENAME". When I connect to Integration Services do I specify the named instance in the connection string or the default instance? I'm unable to connect specifying the named instance.
    <StopExecutingPackagesOnShutdown>true</StopExecutingPackagesOnShutdown>
    <TopLevelFolders>
    <Folder xsi:type="SqlServerFolder">
    <Name>MSDB</Name>
    <ServerName>MYSERVERNAMEMYINSTANCENAME</ServerName>
    </Folder>
    <Folder xsi:type="FileSystemFolder">
    <Name>File System</Name>
    <StorePath>..Packages</StorePath>
    </Folder>
    </TopLevelFolders>
    </DtsServiceConfiguration>
    Thanks, Dave

    Have you restarted the SQLAgent & SSIS service after this change?
    Not a solution but I guess it worked me earlier when I have had such issues.

    Eventually I found out you need to have a restart of SQLAgent when you make any changes to XML file for DTS/SSIS.

    After you have the changes to the .ini.xml file, you need to restart the IIS service on the server in order for this to take effect. It works!

    IIS?
    Don't think you need IIS for SSIS and it is only for SSRS.

    You are right my bad, I meant IS (SSIS) service
