I am running  a package that has  different kind of data flow tasks in it. I have execute process task control flow item. That executes an exe file.  Now when I run this package manually every thing works fine. But if I run this package using a job it gives me an error. Except this execute process task every thing else in this package run  when I run this package from sql job. What could be the reason for the failure of this particular task?

Also please note that,I have given a correct UNC path.

looks like a permission issue....
- Does the user running the job have the right to that package?
- did you setup the 'WorkingDirectory' for that Execute process task?

Event I felt the same.I don't know how to check whether all required permissions are there?
(i.e.) How do I ensure that user running the job have all the sufficient rights?What are all the rights that a usee need to possess in order to run ?

I don't know,what you are referring to working directory for that Execute Process Task?Is that a property of an execute process task?If so, what value do i need to set that warking directory to?

yeah it's a property, and should probably be the directory where the exe is...

Also, did you try to delete that package and build a new one?
It seems sometimes SSIS packages fail when there was changes to DB (backup/restore, login changes, etc)...

Sorry I can't really help you more, I'm not an expert with SSIS problems...

Hi,

Looks like it's a permission issue as stalhw mentioned earlier, make sure the execution account that the SQL agent job is using has permission to run access the database.

That's a common problem, just check the SQL AGENT service account and make sure it has access.

Please give proper permissions to Access that folder as well as executing permission of EXE to SQL Agent user.

You're welcome, believe me all of us doing that mistake, we use an admin or SA account to devlop, then when we deploy we get permission denied!!

but always try to use package configurations to get out of that mistake.
