SQL Agent job fails running SSIS packages

by Geir » Fri, 01 Aug 2008 14:34:41

I need some help from you on a problem with SQL Server Agent that I believe many of you have experienced. When searching on the web I find some loose answers, but it would not solve my problems. So here is my story.

1. I have created two SSIS packages, package 1 and package 2. Both packages have a Execute SQL Task making a select sql statement to a table, say Customer in AdventureWorks DB. Package1 also makes a Execute Pacakge Task to Package 2. Both packages have protectionlevel property set to EncryptSensitiveWithUserKey

2. Then I created two package configuration files per package, one indirect xml configuration and one xml configuration file. The former I created an environment variable called pack1, which was specifying the path and file name of second config file. Likewise, I did for package2. Maybe I could have reused thie first configuration file, but I am not sure since package1 calls package2.

3. Now I build and deploy my packages. Then I run my manifest file, going through the deployment wizard setting the necceccary properties like server name, user, password, I have also create the same environment variables on the deployment machine. I ensure that the package1 and package2 can be run under integration services (file system). And both package works. So far so good

4. Now I want to create a SQL server agent job that runs package1 and package2. Here I found an article that decribed How to Schedule and Run a SSIS package ( DTS ) Job in SQL Server 2005 http://www.veryComputer.com/

5. I created a job executor account and then Create SQL proxy account and associate proxy account with job executor account as described. I created a new ssis job, specifying type ssis integration services, run as proxy, setting package source to SSIS package store, naming the server and package name (package2).

6. Now, I try running job1 which runs package2. ANd it works. I was aware if I needed to give file permission on users (read and execute) on my dtsx/dtsconfig/log files. So far so good

7. Now, I try to run job test which runs package1 (which also runs package2). But now the job fails :-(. The job runs for some seconds, but fails. I have to say that I have some script tasks with message boxes inside!!! hope this doesn't matter. I have created all neccessary accounts, proxies, credentials and so on. here is the view history

Well, I read some place that I could run the job as type operating system (cmdexec). Here i could not choose Run as, but had to select SQL SErver agent account. NOw I got this message

SQL Agent job fails running SSIS packages

I was running into a similar problem and what I ended up doing was inserting the package variable, system:ErrorDescription, into a sql table so that I could see what the actual error message being produced by the package was.

You can do this in the event handlers tab of the package make sure it's at the package level. If the package name is test make sure the Executable drop down on the left says test and the Event Handler one on the right says onError.

Then click on the main screen and drop an Execute SQL Task on. (you'll need a table with the columns similar to the Audit Error Tracking table I use)

The insert statment should look something like this:




Redeploy the package to the server and let us konw what errors come back after running it.

Hope that helps some
