DTSRUN privileges?

P: n/a
I am trying to get a DTS package to be run from the command line with
the dtsrun utility. The DTS package is stored in the database. The user
I supply is a user in the database. I get an error stating "SQL Server
does not exist or access denied." It looks to me like the SQL Server
instance does exist because it tries to start the package. I get
"DTSRun: Executing". If I put in a server that is non-existent, I do not
get that message. I also know that my username and password are correct.

Here is output from my attempt to run dtsrun for my DTS pkg (server,
user, password change to protect my db security):

C:\>dtsrun /Sserver_name /Uuser /Ppass /Npkg_name
DTSRun: Loading...
DTSRun: Executing...
DTSRun OnStart: DTSStep_DTSExecuteSQLTask_1
DTSRun OnError: DTSStep_DTSExecuteSQLTask_1, Error = -2147467259 (80004005)
Error string: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server
does not exist or access denied.
Error source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
Help file:
Help context: 0
Error Detail Records:
Error: -2147467259 (80004005); Provider Error: 17 (11)
Error string: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server
does not exist or access denied.
Error source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
Help file:
Help context: 0
DTSRun OnFinish: DTSStep_DTSExecuteSQLTask_1
DTSRun: Package execution complete.
I suspect that my user I am connecting to the database with does not
have privileges to execute the DTS package. I cannot determine, from
BOL, what privs I need to grant to this user to let them execute this
package. Any ideas?
TIA,
Brian

Hi Brian.

The fact that it says:
DTSRun: Loading...
DTSRun: Executing...
indicates your user can run DTSRUN. What is more likely is that user cannot
connect to the servers and databases named in the package.

Try going into Query analyzer and connect to the server as that user and see
if you can connect to the database and select from some of its tables.

To add to Dick's response, be aware that the DTS package runs on same
machine as DTSRUN. You'll get these errors if you run the package on a
client machine and have specified SQL Server name 'local' in the DTS
connection.

The user can connect to the database and query tables just fine with QA.
This is not a Windows user, but rather one that is authenticated in the
database.

I do plan on running the DTSRUN utility from a client machine, but I
have stated the SQL Server's name in the /S switch. I did not use
'local' or '.' for the server name since I know the package is not local
to the client.

Thanks,
Brian

Hi Brian

Can you open the package and look at the connections. Dan was suggesting
that one of these connections might be "(local)". also I would add to my
previous comment, the username specified for these connections might lack
the privileges to connect to the database.

Also if to open the package and execute it from the designer you can see
which step is crashing.
