We are currently migrating our servers to a new data center. Currently, SQL Server 2014 and SSIS packages are deploying in seconds.
The new data center has several SQL Server 2016 installations and I've found that "changing the protection level" takes a long time for some (about 7 minutes!), But for some it's fast. If I change the SSIS project TargetServer version to 2016, changing the protection level on all new servers is slow.
The protection level of the project and the packages has been (and is) set to DontSaveSensitive.
What is the cause of the slowness and how can I fix it? It is finally provided without error.
