Default DTS copy


I have all the packages saved in the SQL Server, now they planned to scrape the existing system and would need to move it to the new server. What is the best recommended way to move all the packages from one server to another.

Currently, I'm exporting the packages to the filesystem as .DTS file and importing it to the new server, one by one and change the conn string info. in the target server manually.

As you know, its a time consuming process of copying the package one by one. Is there any other way to copy it to the new server? Will backup and restore of MSDB help in these aspects? Also, way to change conn string of db only by an automated process.

The other way, what i felt was open the package in the existing system and use "Save as" option pointing to the new server...

Thanks in advance.
