I am using SQL Server 2008, not R2.

I'm creating an SSIS package, and I've properly enabled checkpoints.

I'm using sequence containers with transactions.

When I enable the transactions on the sequence containers (TransactionOption: Required) the checkpoint files no longer work.

The checkpoint file will get created when there is a failure, but its an empty file with no actual checkpoint in it.

I also tried using a ForLoop as described here: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Integration+Services+(SSIS)/65809/

This does work as described when not using transactions, but again when I turn on transactions then upon a failure I get an empty checkpoint file.

Any ideas? Seems like kind of a major bug, I can't imagine that it isn't possible to use checkpoints and transactions.

Is this something that has been resolved in a later release or something?

I have no advice, but we ran into the same problem here. I'm not an SSIS guy, but our SSIS team stopped using the checkpoints in SSIS and programmed their own -- a stored procedure that fires off before anything else in the container and checks things and then another that fires off after everything else that sets things.

Yeah, the biggest bummer with that is handling all the of the run-time variables....

Seems like a massive shortfall....

By the way, does anyone know if this functionality has been improved in 2012?
