Default Problem Scheduling a job on DTS package.

Problem with SQL 2000 DTS package scheduling and pulling the data off Access 2000 database.

I was trying to schedule a job using the DTS package. I had no problem with running it manually, but it failed when I scheduled the job. Few steps are involved in this job. The job Failed when it processed the step of pulling the data off the Access 2000 to SQL 2000 server. The access 2000 database resides on a different server from SQL 2000 server. We have used the net use command and tried to map the drive and all failed. We have taken care of the ownership of the package on both servers by giving the same user name on both server.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

When you schedule a job to run from the server, the package is run under a different user context than when you run it manually. Check the network login that the SQL Server Agent service is running under, this login should have rights to read the MS Access database you are trying to pull in.

One way around this is to setup the Proxy account, however for more information on this problem check out the following article:


(SQL Server Central requires a free registration in order to view their articles but it's well worth the time it takes to register!)

Good luck!

The owner of the job is Server1/Administrator. Server2 also has the administrator username with the same password.

The job was scheduled to pull data from server2 to server1, while these two servers are under the same work group (not a domain). I wonder if the Server1/Administrator is just a local user name to server1 because the two servers are not under the same domain. Is that what you mean?

To fix this, I should create a proxy account. Is that right?

Thank you very much!!!
