SSIS package run by SQL Agent fails

We have a package in dtsx format setup to automate some tasks over FTP.
When we run the package manually from Development Studio it works fine.
When we ask SQL Server Agent to execute the job it gives an error indicating access rights issue as follows:

Unable to load the package as XML because of package does not have a valid XML format. A specific XML parser error will be posted.  End Error  Error: 2014-11-12 16:38:07.48     Code: 0xC0011002     Source: {C439F4ED-1F2D-48BF-9DF8-5C895594B508}      Description: Failed to open package file "\\cphebtda01\dataanalyse$\Kunder\PM\SSIS Automation\StoreReportV2\Integration Services Project1\Package.dtsx" due to error 0x80070005 "Access is denied.".  This occurs when loading a package and the file cannot be opened or loaded correctly into the XML document. This can be the result of specifying an incorrect file name when calling LoadPackage or the specified XML file has an incorrect format.  End Error  Could not load package "\\cphebtda01\dataanalyse$\Kunder\PM\SSIS Automation\StoreReportV2\Integration Services Project1\Package.dtsx" because of error 0xC0011002.  Description: Failed to open package file "\\cphebtda01\dataanalyse$\Kunder\PM\SSIS Automation\StoreReportV2\Integration Services Project1\Package.dtsx" due to error 0x80070005 "Access is denied.".  This occurs when loading a package and the file cannot be opened or loaded correctly into the XML document. This can be the result of specifying an incorrect file name when calling LoadPackage or the specified XML file has an incorrect format.  

SQL Server and dtsx resides on the same server.

When we look at the folder permissions for the folder that contains the dtsx how can we verify that the NT Service\SQLSERVERAGENT has the necessary rights to the folder?

No Folder rights have been changed since server install (is app. 2 months old).

Hi there

I think we may be looking at this the wrong way - since SQL Server agent runs as an NT Service - does that not implicitly grant it access to all files on the NTFS volume via the SYSTEM Group?

If the above is true and NT Service\SQLSERVERAGENT is a member of SYSTEM then the error must be something else than the services access to the file - yes??

Best Regards
Thomas

The Account we where trying to use had access to the Root drive d:\$ - but it did not work untill we specifically gave the account access to the folder that contained the SSIS package to execute.

David Johnson's remark helped solve this issue eventually - just took us a long time to find the way to fix it with this info - due to wrong assumptions :)
