    I'm still in the middle or adding servers to a multi-configuration setup, and other than the error I ran into earlier, requiring EXECUTE permissions on sp_ssis_getfolder, I enocuntered another error today:

    To enable this option, on the target server, the 'Agent XPs' option has to be turned on. This is easily done:

    Code (TSQL):

    sp_configure 'Agent XPs', 1
    You can also visually see whether the option is on or off, by the way, as SQL Server Agent will then show it in its description:

    Attempting to change the setting as described above might not be possible on your system off the bat if you did not turn on the ability to show advanced options.If this is the case, you will see the following error:

    Luckily, this, too, is easily done by issuing the command below:

    Code (TSQL):

    sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1;
