Hi Folks,
 
I am trying to schedule the execution of a package through sql agent. The package call child packages that are falling over because the protection level of the child package is set to EncryptSensitiveWithPassword.

I believe you can pass the password through dtexec but that is not a desirable solution because I would need to hardcode the password in the job. Also I would need to setup a xp_cmdshell proxy for the user I am running the job as to run dtexec or make
that user sysadmin which I am not keen on either.

I have given a tip that I could use a package template  -  (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918760 method 5)
does anyone know if this would help my situation and what exactly to do (a pointer to some doco would be fab)

Can the child packages be set to use Windows Authentication?  That way you won't be using encrypted credentials embedded in the packages.  The SQL Agent service account must have permissions on the data sources that the packages access.

I think I found that answer. By using commandline tab in the step for the integration services job you can specify a /DEC <password> parameter.
