  • Hi SNIVAS,


    We don’t need to install SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).


    We could create a plan using the Maintenance Plan Wizard. About how to create a maintenance plan using the Maintenance Plan Wizard, please see the following steps:

        1. In Object Explorer, expand a server, and then expand Management.

        2. Right-click Maintenance Plans and select Maintenance Plan Wizard.

        3. Follow the steps of the wizard to create a maintenance plan.


    For more information about how to create a maintenance plan, please visit the following link:



    If you have any more questions, please feel free to let me know.

    2.Did required changes (Selected all database) for Backup

    3.Click on Save icon

    It is showing an error "Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxx).

  • SQL Server 2005 with Service Pack 2 and above does not require SSIS to be installed for creating of Maintenance plans.

    SQL Server 2008 with Service Pack 1 or Cumulative Update 3.


    FIX: Error message when you run a maintenance plan in SQL Server 2008: "The SQL Server Execute Package Utility requires Integration Services to be installed"

    Do maintenance plans require SSIS?

    Do we need SSIS to create Maintenance Plan
