SQL Server 2008 SSIS FTP Step Failing

I have an 2008 SSIS package with an FTP step. I enter the FTP info into the FTP Connection Manager and the package will execute successfully. However it will not retain the FTP password even after saving the package. Any ideas?

Try to right-click on your FTP Connection Manager and choose Properties. Type your password and then, when you get to saving your package, save it with EncryptSensitiveWithPassword option. This is different from the default EncryptSensitiveWithUserKey option, which will, for example, fail to run your package when you setup a job, because the account is not going to be consistent with yours (the one used to create SSIS package).

Sorry, I don't see the option to save it with EncryptSensitiveWithPassword. Thanks, Mark

@marobins I think I just found a great resource for your question on SSC site. It has 5 pages of discussions devoted to the same problem like you have. Here is the link: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic278800-148-1.aspx

Marobins, if you click on an empty space on the control flow then press F4 to bring up the properties of the package, there is a section on security. Make sure the package says EncryptSensitiveWithUserKey, then you will be able to keep the password in the FTP connection
