I get an error 229: "Execute permission denied on 'xp_servicecontrol'. database 'master', owner 'dbo'"
when I attempt to schedule a job using the SQL Server Agent in v. 7.0. I actually get the above error when I attempt to start the SQLServer Agent. If I tried right-clicking to schedule a job I would get other errors such as execute permission denied on sp_get_sqlagent_properties. Our DBA is mainly a network guy and I think he needs to grant certain permissions to let me schedule jobs. Does anyone know specifically how to set these permissions? Any thoughts would be welcome.
