Scheduling a ssis package to run

I have an SSIS package that is in the file system. I want to schedule it to run daily. It will b accessing data that is on another server. When I try to set it up, I browse to the package location to get the path, but when I try to run it, it says it does not find it. Itried entering the path as unc but it still got the same error. I have never used the sql server agent before.

The package is located in the file system, but is not on the server where I am trying to set it up. Is that the issue?

I moved the package to the c drive of the server I have the job on it found it. HOWEVER, it is getting an error that it cannot open the destination flat file. That flat file is  on a drive on another server. It retrieves data from the database (also on another server just fine). I am running it as myself as the owner. I have read/write permissions to the file that it can't open. Any suggestions.

I got past that problem by specifying a UNC path for my destination file. I have one more error now. In another step I have a source file that uses an ODBC connection. The odbc connection is setup on the server, but the package does not appear to find it. This is the error message: Error Code 0xC0208449 Source Transform Data to CSV(Data Flow Task) Description ADO.NET Source has failed to acquire the connection with the following error message “ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data Source name not found and no default driver specified”

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Yes, as you discovered the paths are the server where SQL Agent/whatever is running, and not your dev box's file paths.

>That flat file is  on a drive on another server.
Same answer.

>Description ADO.NET Source has failed to acquire the connection
Might be a driver issue on that server, and the next step is to search for what versions of the ADO.NET drivers are on the server, what's needed, and possibliy download an update.   Have you tried it ODBC to see if that works?

The ODBC connection is fine. This package will run fine when executed manually from the server where it is now.

I actually found the solution. The Odbc connection was defined as a User DSN, It needed to be a System DSN.

I am accepting as solution since it was the only respose I got. I am not sure if that is what I am supposed to do. I pretty much figured it out myself.
