SQL Server Agent has no Access to Path

32,584 Recognized Expert Moderator MVP
SQL Server 2000.
MS Windows 2000.

My server has recently stopped using (lost access to) the Path environment variable for jobs run by the SQL Server Agent.
I have restarted the services as well as the whole server but nothing allows the SQL Server Agent to have access to the Path again.
I know the problem is the path as I am running a DTS job using DTSRun.Exe. When I specify the full path for DTSRun.Exe it works ok, but when I simply specify DTSRun, it doesn't.
The command run is :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DTSRun /S(Local) /E /NVectaCust
The error reported is :
Executed as user: MyDomain\SQLAdm in. The process could not be created for step 9 of job 0x58D606D25DFF2 A4F96F11AA5D93B 840B (reason: The system cannot find the file specified). The step failed.
This confused me until I realised it was referring to the DTSRun.Exe file. I tried a fully specified reference and it worked (It also worked when I ran the same command from a simple CMD.EXE command prompt).

If this is known behaviour and, more importantly, if anyone knows a fix to make it work correctly again, I'd be very interested to hear about it. In the mean time I will update all my job steps to hold the fully specified command names. Not really looking forward to that - it's not tidy and it's not logical. I hate mess.

Hi guys, I have put together a flexible client-side user agent detector (written in js). I thought that some of you may find it useful. Code is here: http://fotios.cc/software/ua_detect.htm The detector requires javascript 1.0 to work. This translates to netscape 2.0 and IE 3.0 (although maybe IE 2.0 also works with it)

I have an import routine that takes a generic file (Excel, CSV, Fixed length, PDMS BOM, XML, etc) and maps fields to a temp import table on the server, in the field mapping there may be functions specified so the user may put in "Mid([DocNumber,12,3)" as a value to go into FieldX.

We are attempting to make a request to a web service (we will refer to it as XXXServices) hosted on a Web Logic server from a C# SOAP client. The server responds with a 401 Unauthorized error (that appears in plain text), and causes the client to crash.

I've got a custom HttpHandler to process all requests for a given extension. It gets invoked OK, but if I try to do a Server.Transfer I get an HttpException. A Response.Redirect works, but I really need to avoid the extra round-trip to the client. I've tried Passing the page name, the full URL, and the instance of the handler class to the Transfer method, but everything gets me the same error 500. Any help would be appreciated.
