So, I have a job that has been on the schedule for about six months or so. Everythings has been fine, then all of the sudden it doesn't want to work.
Job: Process incoming eligibility file (sghs0310.11) [where "0310.11" is the date, and yes the ".11" is the extension]
The file is dropped on our ftp site, the job runs the next morning then emails me when the job is complete with success or failure. It's been working great until about two weeks ago, then I started receiving this message:

It is our internal ftp site, not external. I did check that the credential is set to not expire and the password is still valid/same. When I run the package locally it works. my sqlsvc account used as my package proxy does has full control also.

Have you checked your access to the FTP server..try to open it manually and see if anything has changed recently.. I am sure you would have done this but then.. Also, try to run the package manually and see if you get the same error.. Let me know, what you see

I've checked the access a few times. I've even retyped the password to ensure it was still granted.
Coincidentally I had installed an SSIS toolset the day before it started failling. I just finished uninstalling it and the job ran successfully. Not sure if this is a coincidence or what.
