Your job owner owns more than you

leave a comment »

The job owner matters.

When you run your Sql Server job that executes your SSIS package or a job creating files or a job inserting to an access database or a job accessing files you may get something akin to

Non-SysAdmins have been denied permission to run DTS Execution job steps without a proxy account.  The step failed.

This means that you need to find an account and set the owner of the job to that account.  It could be system or NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM or whatever your sysadmin dictates. 

You would think that the ‘execute as’ would control who is running the show, but this is not the case.  ‘Execute as’ is just the Carney pulling the levers.
