A newbee question: Connect to SSIS from within Management Studio?
I have a running service named: Integration Services 10.0, but from within Management Studio, I don't know how to connect to it, it doesn't appear under the connect button.

What does appear under the connect button? – Dayton Brown Oct 16 '09 at 14:50

In Management Studio -> Object Explorer, click on "Connect". You should have a drop-down with "Integration Services" under it.

No, I don't have it under the connect button, like I stated in the question – Peter Oct 16 '09 at 13:53
Thanks for correcting my reading-too-quickly. Are you using SSMS Express? Express doesn't have Integration Services support. – Scott Forsyth - MVP Oct 16 '09 at 15:39
