SQL Agent Proxy behavior

· Uncategorized
Authors

After migration from SQL2005 to SQL2008R2 none of our SQL jobs ran successfully using the default SQL Server Agent Service account (Run as defined in the jobstep).
However using a proxy account, linked to a credential that impersonates the same SQL Server Agent service account, everything runs fine.

We solved this issue by explicitly grant the service account database role membership to the db_ssisadmin role in msdb.

And everything worked fine.

When revoking this role membership, everything remained to work correctly, so this sounds like a bug!
