* Here you need to specify the server name from where the SSIS packages should be taken, then provide the authentication details, (i.e windows or sql), After providing the server name & authentication the Package will be enabled and you can select SSIS package.


* You can click on the button shown with red arrow mark to select the SSIS Package that you need to schedule, you will be popped with the below window.


* After selecting the SSIS package, the package name will be displayed in the package column as shown below.

      You can add a new step with the below command to start the job.

      EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_start_job @job_name=’My Job’

      If you want to start in another server then change the step type to operating system and then use the below command

      SQLCMD -E -SServer1 -dmsdb -Q”EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_start_job @job_name=’My Job’”
