SQL Server Agent TSQL Query using sp_OACreate. What NT security does the dbo SQL user have?

Posted on 2004-04-29
Last Modified: 2011-08-18
I have a TSQL script that calls a COM object from it. The running user (SQL Agent scheduler) runs it with a dbo login from SQL so who's security does it connect to the COM object as? The login process of SQL Agent, the login process of SQL server or something else?

DECLARE @iCnt int
DECLARE @sSource varchar(255)
DECLARE @sDesc varchar(255)
DECLARE @sObjectName varchar(255)

SET @iCnt = 1
SELECT "Current User: " = CURRENT_USER, " Time: " = CONVERT(char(30), CURRENT_TIMESTAMP)
    SET @sObjectName = CASE @iCnt
        WHEN 1 THEN 'QBXMLRPEQODBCInteractive.RequestProcessor'
        WHEN 2 THEN 'QBXMLRP.RequestProcessor'
        WHEN 3 THEN 'QBXMLRP2EQODBCInteractive.RequestProcessor'
        WHEN 4 THEN 'QBXMLRP2.RequestProcessor'
        ELSE 'Xerces.DOMDocument'
    EXEC @iHR = sp_OACreate @sObjectName, @oQBXMLrp OUT
    IF @iHR <> 0 BEGIN
        EXEC sp_OAGetErrorInfo @oQBXMLrp, @sSource OUT, @sDesc OUT
        SELECT "Object" = @sObjectName, "Function" = 'CreateObject', "HR" = convert(varbinary(4),@iHR), "Source" = @sSource, "Description" = @sDesc
        SELECT "Object" = @sObjectName, "Function" = 'CreateObject', "HR" = convert(varbinary(4),0), "Source" = '', "Description" = 'Successfully Created'

    EXEC @iHR = sp_OADestroy @oQBXMLrp
    SET @iCnt = @iCnt + 1

If it's actually running under the scheduler, it would be called with the SQLAgent USER/Password....
