Login timeout expired. The SQL Server instance specified in SSIS service configuration is not present or is not available

We all know that SQL Server Integration services is not cluster aware. This means that we cannot set the SQL Server Integration Services to failover automatically. But still in many situations we are required to have SSIS installed on a cluster and make it work when the database engine failover or failback.
To achieve this, we have to install SSIS on all the nodes of the cluster.
Okay, I have a 2 node cluster and I have installed SSIS on both the nodes.
What next?
When we install the SSIS, the configuration file by default refers to "." which means local default instance. But in the clustered environment, we never install the database engine with the node name and hence when we try to open the Integration services it fails with the below error message.
To fix this error, we have to modify the SSIS configuration file "MsDtsSrvr.ini.xml" to refer to the correct SQL Server Instance Name.
This file will be usually located at "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn" and for SQL Server 2005 at "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\DTS\Binn"

Before editing the file

After editing the file, restart the SQL Server Integration services to refer to the new SQL Server instance name

The article on Flutter app development benefits is very informative and well-written. It covers the key advantages of using Flutter for app development, such as faster development time, seamless integration with existing code, and native performance. I especially liked how the article provided real-world examples to illustrate these benefits. Great read!
