DTExec: Could not import the configuration file

DTExec: Could not import the configuration file

DTExec: Could not import the configuration file

Hello everyone,

I've developed a SSIS package that reads info from a config file. In BIDS 2008 it works like a charm. I then created a SQL Job that invokes this job and uses that config file during execution.

I have developed several other SSIS Packages, deployed them to the same SSIS Server, created the new SQL Job on a server where other SQL Jobs are already running, put the config file in the exact same folder where other config files are, set the SQL Job to run as the same owner as the other SQL Jobs and configured the Step (there is only one step in the SQL Job) to run as the same proxy account as all the other steps in the SQL Jobs... but every time I run the SQL Job, I get the following error:
"DTExec: Could not import the configuration file BlaBlaBla.dtsConfig"

I understand the error is 99% due to some permission issue, but, given that everything is configured the same way as other SQL Jobs that are running, do you see anything else I may be missing?

Thanks in advance,
SuperJB bigglasses

RE: DTExec: Could not import the configuration file

Could be inherited permissions - fact you have copied the file to same folder does not mean the permissions on that file to the required sql server account are the same as other files on that folder that work fine
