Copy SSIS packages from MS SQL SERVER 2008 R2

Copy SSIS packages from SQL Server 2008 R2 to another SQL Server 2008

First day at the new job I was asked if I knew anything about moving SSIS packages from one server to another server. The developer/dbo was dreading having to manually download and deploy the SSIS packages from the old server to the new server.

I quickly started looking for an automated, scripted solution and came across this stackoverflow post that was asking nearly the exact same question.  The only real difference was the original question was asking about  moving where as we needed to copy. (moving meant removing from old server as we nearly found out the hard way).

Below is the sql code from that post that I decided to group together on my github for sharing and for later use which by the way, I ended up reusing. I think making this into a stored procedure with a few more bells and whistles might come in handy.

Copy SSIS packages from MSDB SQL SERVER 2008 R2 to another SQL SERVER 2008 R2.  

Requires command line utility dtutil:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\130\DTS\Binn\dtutil.exe
    (Path varies on verison ie. 130)
Notes: 
    Assumes default instance and localhost.

You can run this and copy the results to a file editor which I found useful to then copy and replace all the usernames/passwords with our information. Running one line to test was nice before running the whole batch file.

Here is the batch file to copy to. I kept one line in order to show the the format but your results from the query above should pull all your package paths out. Remember to run this on the original SQL Server.

REM Script to COPY SSIS packages from one SQL_SERVER to another SQL_SERVER
REM ECERVANTES 12.15.2017 
REM USAGE:
REM     Copies MSDB packages from server to server. Script must be altered to move/copy from file system. 
REM     Users SQL Server command line tool: dtutil 
REM     Must be run from origin server. 
REM Notes:  
REM     Yes I know there is no for loop but I couldn't find a way to do that with MSDB packages. 
REM     Text generated using ExtractSSISPackageInformation.sql script. Use that to apply changes. 
REM     <username> and <password> removed for security


dtutil /SQL "\<PACKAGE NAME>" /SOURCEUSER <username> /SOURCEPASSWORD <password> /DestServer <DB_SERVER> /COPY SQL;"\<PACKAGE NAME>" /DESTUSER <username> /DESTPASSWORD <password>

Insta_Delete

Earlier this year I began playing with an open source instagram bot, InstaPy, after hearing the creator talk about web automation with selenium. I was very impressed and frankly amazed with what was possible with selenium and wanted to see how I could incorporate it in both my personal projects and professional career.

Since 2010, I had posted more images on IG than Flickr, 8,200+ with a good chunk of them "throw away" images. I already backed up my photos so now came the challenge to clean/delete my feed. Spring cleaning, pruning the hedges, whatever you want to call it, IG doesn't make it easy.

Enter Insta_Delete (no relation to the app that kept popping up in my google searches).

I decided to build myself a bot glorified script to first scroll as far back as possible on my feed, then scrape the page for URL's, parse and find the href links, save them to a file, log in with a mobile emulated browser and delete those old posts.







I wrote a script that is working now, …

Data Visualization with Python

Scatter plots with Matplotlib  I'm in the middle of taking a 6 week Data Visualization course at Code Academy so I guess you might call this a midterm project. In this jupyter notebook project, we have use real world space data (celestial star location ) for the Orion constellation and output a 3D scatter plot. This was fun but because it is an intro course, the project didn't even get to labeling the actual star which I thought was bunk. 
At the end of the project, they offer you a link to some star data and challenge you to plot some local stars. So I decided to publish my results that I will end up turning in for the extra credit portion of the project. (code below)
I picked a few stars, starting with some familiar ones, like Sirius, and started plotting it out. It took a while to get the labels on correctly, for some reason, I thought it was going to be easy but it definitely took some searching as the 3D portion of it made finding the examples far more challenging than t…
