SQL 2005 Create JOB to Schedule autorun of SSIS pkg


How to Schedule and Run a SSIS package ( DTS ) Job

  • The job executor account needs the roles of sysadmin, SQLAgentUserRole, SQLAgentReaderRole, SQLAgentOperatorRole
  • The job needs to be run under Proxy account
  • The job executor account is better to be used to create SSIS package and so you are sure the job executor account has the right to run this SSIS package.

The following steps can be followed to get the job done.

Then click OK

Use msdb

Sp_add_proxy @proxy_name='MyProxy', @credential_name='MyCredential'

Sp_grant_login_to_proxy @login_name=' devlogin', @proxy_name='MyProxy'

Sp_grant_proxy_to_subsystem @proxy_name='MyProxy', @subsystem_name='SSIS'
