I just added a proxy to a Agent Job and got the following error.

 Grant permission by calling sp_grant_proxy_to_subsystem or sp_grant_login_to_proxy

Does anybody know fix?

thanks

In which group you created the proxy and what type of command youa re using in Agent job?
Do the credential (used for proxy) have the permission for the resource used by job?

Have you granted the relevant subsystem permissions to the proxy user. Ie if you are runnning an SSIS package then you will have to grant the user access to the SSIS subsystem.

The order in which you should set up a proxy is to add the user to Security > Credentials and then under "SQL Server Agent" > Proxies (Right Click) New Proxy and assign the subsystem permissions.

Ok past that error now... the new error is

Unable to start execution of step 3 (reason: Could not get proxy data for proxy_id = 41).  The step failed.

This is tricky...

In the drop down in the job you have created you will see as per the screen shot. This is the subsystem. SUBSYSTEM

Is your SQL Service running under "Local System" or is a user specified?

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\DTS\Binn\DTEXEC.EXE" /SQL "\BReports\Invoicing" /SERVER AD1/MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING E

This command work fine if i run the Job under the SA account.

When I use the proxy it does not work.

I have included sysadmin and SQLAgentUserRole in the principals of the proxy.

Probably a good idea to get a Jew one created with the specific filesystem permissions that are needed.

thank you so much for helping me through this issue.

A new domain account was created which I used in the proxy.

It all works now.
