Visual Studio hangs when SSIS has an issue

Scott-3123 21 Reputation points

When all the servers that my SSIS jobs talks to are online there are no issues. As soon as one of them goes down though, Visual Studio 2019 Professional will totally lock up if I open the SSIS package because it can't do the validation. Is there any way to work around that? Why isn't that validation done on a background thread? Locking up the UI is evil.

    1.Please choose Work offline;

    2.Please set Delay Validation as True;

    Please refer to there are situations in which validation is not desirable.
