xp_cmdshell and xp_sqlagent_proxy_account issue

I am not currently a sysadmin, but had the SA grant me access to execute both xp_cmdshell and xp_sqlagent_proxy_account.

I successfully executed xp_sqlagent_proxy_account using N'SET'  and even did an N'GET' and ensured that the account was in fact set properly.

However, even after executing this, I still get the following when executing xp_cmdshell:

Msg 50001, Level 1, State 50001
xp_cmdshell failed to execute because current security context is not sysadmin and proxy acount is not setup correctly. For more information, refer to Book Online, search for topic related to xp_sqlagent_proxy_account.


Does anyone have any idea why this would still be happening?!

You can do those commands even when the proxy_account isn't setup.

You may want to get your admin to verify the SQL Server Agent Properties as the Non-SysAdmin job step proxy account may still be checked on.

THANK YOU!.

It was that setting that was checked in the SQL Agent properties on the production server.  Amazing how I hadn't seen that suggestion elsewhere before, even after 3 hours of searching.  


Thanks again.
