Failure Executing SSIS package from C# on two separate servers

I have a ssis package on SQL Server machine.
I wrote a C# webservice that loads the package and then executes it.
when I installed the webservice on the IIS of a different server the execution returns DTSExecResult.Failure.

I tried creating a new Application Pool and set its Identity to Configurable, and gave it a domain user which is Administrator on the SQL Server machine and has access to the package.
Still no luck....

What kind of user & permissions do I need to define?

I would appreciate any help...

Do you have SSIS runtime installed on the working IIS machine, and no SSIS runtime installed on the non working IIS machine?

The answer is both Yes and No.
The server where the package is saved has SSIS runtime installed.

As to the other server (IIS server) - at first it was a server with no ssis runtime installed.
So I tried from a different server which does have ssis installed, but still it couldn't execute.

When I try running it from the IIS server, I also get a "login failed" in the Event viewer (Application event) of the Sql machine (where the package is installed).
The source is MSSQLSERVER and it says "Login failed for user Domain\UserName".

What does all this mean??

Some more info on the errors I get:
1. When I configure the Application Pool Identity to: local system, I get on Machine B the following error (event viewer- application):
    Product: SQL Server
    ID: 18456
    Version: 10.0
    Component: SQLEngine
    Symbolic Name: LOGON_FAILED
    Message: Login failed for user "domain\ServerName$"

    I found a description of this error in the microsoft Support Center. It talks about problem with authentication.
    I still didn't finish investigating it.

    (on machine A I don't get any error in the event viewer)

2. When I configure the Application Pool Identity to: Configurable, and set an Administrator user "Domain\UserName" (administrator on both A & B machines) I don't get on Machine B any error in the event viewer, but I do get one on Machine A.
    On Machine A I get the error:
    Source: SQLISPackage
    ID: 12291
    User: Domain\UserName
    Description: Package "packageName" failed.

    I tried looking for it in the Microsoft Support Center, but they have no info on the subject.

Actually your first objective should be to alter your package to include logging, and ensure that it logs to a local drive that exists on all machines (i.e. C drive). Then you can look at the logs for more detailed info.
The two errors you have above are different errors - the first one is because your IIS service account can't log into SQL Server. The second one is because your package won't run, and for more information on why your package won't run you need to enable logging.
