SSIS Package deployment issue

Posted on 2014-07-16

When I deploy a package using a SSISDeploymentManifest file, I am getting an error:

"Failed to decrypt an encrypted XML node because the password was not specified or not correct. Package load will attempt to continue without encrypted information."

The package loads, but does not contain the connection string information for the database and will not run on the server. I can run the package without errors on my desktop. I know that the password I am entering is correct as I have tried it many times.

It is a very simple package with three tasks that query a table and email the results so there is not a lot to it. But I will have many more that increase in complexity once I get this issue resolved.

I am using the EncryptSensitiveWithPassword option as these jobs must run on a schedule using the SQL Server agent.

I have seen options that require access to the msdb database, but I do not have access to that on the server. I am a developer that has admin access to my databases and the permissions to upload SSIS packages. All elevated permissions belong to the DBAs only.

Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing?

    I follow similar steps in SQL 2005 and 2008 without any issues, but I know that I am probably missing something in the configuration. Any suggestions on where to look?

    I am still not sure what is causing this error when I upload the package to the server. However, it does not prevent the package from uploading and everything runs fine. I am not going to pursue this any more, three days trying to find answers is long enough.
