2005 Maintenance Plan - Error 14234

Attempting to set up a simple backup job on another team's sql box. Went through all the wizard steps to create a backup job for them. Failed at the final hurdle, with >

Create maintenance plan failed.Additional information:Create failed for JobStep 'Subplan'. (Microsoft.SqlServer.MaintenancePlanTasks)

An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)

The specified '@subsystem' is invalid (valid values are returned by sp_enum_sqlagent_subsystems). (Microsoft SQL Server, Error 14234)

This is due to not having Integration Services installed.

Bizarre that maintenance plans should need them, but there you go! Mind you, it was an unpatched system that I'm not responsible for, so maybe this error becomes more obvious in a later release.
