SQL Server Agent Job Always Fails???

I am trying to use the Copy Database Wizard to copy a database from a remote server.  The process seems pretty straightforward but the job always fails.  

Once the job starts, it will return a status of Success on everything  except "Execute SQL Server Agent Job".

Add log for package  -  Success
Add task for transferring database objects  -  Success
Create package  -  Success
Start SQL Server Agent Job  -   Success
Execute SQL Server Agent Job  -  ERROR

After reviewing the log, the only protion that seems to relate to an error is shown below ...

OnError,HP9640,NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM,12_7_146_218_HP9640_Transfer Objects Task,{AF102D8C-5A41-4CCF-9D29-DD90880820F8},{888498C1-24DA-4052-8DF4-8EA9C543ED6E},10/29/2008 1:34:04 PM,10/29/2008 1:34:04 PM,0,0x,The StoredProcedure '[dbo].[taFormatStringsForExecs]' cannot be scripted as its data is not accessible.
StackTrace:    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Scripter.ScriptWithList(DependencyCollection depList, SqlSmoObject[] objects)

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

ET

I am logged into my machine (Vista) as Admin and this is the Destination server.  Is that what you are referring to???

Since your running a SQL Agent job, the agent runs under a user context.  In Services, look at SQL Agent and find what user it is running under.  It is possible that user is not able to access the other server....does that make sense?

Ok, yes that's makes sense.

I looked at  Services >> SQL Server Agent >> Properties >> LogOn  and Local System Account is selected.   Probably need to select "This Account' and specify a valid login/pswd for the remote server.  Is that correct???

Indeed...try to use a domain account if you can.

Still no luck and now the machine that I have SQL Server 2005 Eval Edition running on has now crashed.  I will have to use the method where the DB is backed up and restored rather than trying to make Copy DB Wizard work.

Thanks for your comments and effort.
