Sql Server Agent stops executing jobs


Hello everyone.  I'm having a problem with the sql server agent occasionally not executing its scheduled jobs, and unless the sql server agent is restarted they will not execute according to their schedule.  I've read many posts on people having problems with running a package manually and then not being able to run it in a job, although that is not my problem since these are jobs that have all run successfully historically, and only until the agent is restarted do they start working again.  It is the strangest thing.....we have many different jobs on this server and all of them will just mysteriously stop being executed.  Two other things of note, the agent and server processes both run on AD accounts, and we receive this error:


SQL Server Scheduled Job 'X' - Status: Failed - Invoked on: 2007-10-27 02:00:00 - Message: The job failed.  Unable to determine if the owner (AD\adacct) of job 'X' has server access (reason: Unable to connect to server - check SQL Server and SQL Server Agent errorlogs).


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SQL Server Agent Job And Database Mail - Error formatting query, probably invalid paramters


We have a stored procedure that we are trying to call with a SQL Server Agent Job. The stored procedure calls Database Mail. This is SQL 2008. The execute task is simply:


USE [Production]




When the job runs, it is erroring out immediately, with the error:

Execute as user: NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE. Error formatting query, probably invalid paramters [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 22050). The step failed.

When we go into SQL Server Manager and just execute the SQL query, it works though. Something within the SQL Server Agent job,  and Database Mail is causing problems. Any ideas? Thanks.



Migrating SQL Server 2005 databases, including SQL Agent jobs and SQL users



I should begin to migrate all my data from a SQL Server 2005 (x86) SP3 to another server with SQL 2005 (x64) SP3 installed. About moving the Databases, I think that detach and attach them won't create unexpected problems.

The problems that scare me are:

  1. Migrate the SQL Agent processes. I've created so complex jobs that I'd rather swim across an ocean than rewrite them.
  2. Migrate Users. There are near 70 users with integrated security and each has different mappings to the 40 DBs. Unfortunately there's no domain, so I don't know whether it's possible to copy them without changing their GUIDs.

Does anybody know if my goal is within reach?

Can someone tell me which step to make (and in what order)?

Thank you very much.

executing bat files in SQL Server Agent Jobs



there are 2 batfiles running in daily maintenance plans. one, compressing Backups using GZIP and the other deletes old Backup Files.

the delete.bat uses "forfiles" command and successfully deletes files. recenlt the maintenance plan continued to failed and to investigate i foundout that when there are no files met for  the bat files' criteria, it is being recorded as an error and job faliure in SQL Server.

for example, when there are no files to be deleted, the bat file returns a message like "ERROR NO FILES FOUND UNDER THE GIVEN CRITERIA"

this message is interpreted as an error in the SQL Server JOb which is actually not.


do i have a way of handling this kind of errors?


please reply

Error while executing a package through SQL Server Agent

Hi All,   I have a ssis package. It has 3 tasks, first task updates a record in Oracle database to set an Indicator to “Y”, second task process SSAS Cube and the third again updates the same record and sets the indicator to “N”. This package has 2 data sources, one is Oracle and the other is Analysis Services. I gave the credentials for the Oracle and use NT Authority for Analysis services.   When I am executing from BIDS package is executing successfully. But when I am calling the job to execute this package its throwing me the error. Below is the error.     Message Executed as user: User\Username. ...ion 9.00.4035.00 for 64-bit  Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-2005.

Sending Email by exeucting a stored proc on SQL Server that references CLR

Hi Guys, I want to modify the data type of the @body variable in the stored procedure that sends an email. The stored procedure is as follows:   CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[spSendMail4]<br/> @recipients [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @cc [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @subject [nvarchar](4000),<br/> @from [nvarchar](4000), @body [nvarchar](4000), @attachment [nvarchar](4000)<br/> WITH EXECUTE AS CALLER<br/> AS <br/> EXTERNAL NAME [SMTPCLR].[StoredProcedure].[spSendMail]<br/> GO   I want to change the @body variable to data type: text. The reason for this, is because I am sending an HTML email whose content (characters) exceed 8000. Basically the new stored procedure should looks like below:   CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[spSendMail4] @recipients [nvarchar](4000), @cc [nvarchar](4000), @subject [nvarchar](4000), @from [nvarchar](4000), @body text, @attachment [nvarchar](4000) WITH EXECUTE AS CALLER AS EXTERNAL NAME [SMTPCLR].[StoredProcedure].[spSendMail] GO   If attempt to make this change, I get the below error:   CREATE PROCEDURE for "spSendMail" failed because T-SQL and CLR types for parameter "@body" do not match.   Understandably so, because from the article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms131092%28SQL.100%29.aspx CLR data type (.NET Framework) is not compa

Access to SQL Server Jobs

Hello folks, Would like to grant group of users ( windows logins) to CREATE / MODIFY / DELETE / SCHEDULE jobs on SQL Server 2005. But can not grant users SYSADMIN privileges. I know that by granting users SQLAgentOperatorRole, SQLAgenetReaderRole and SQLAgentUserRole the User will be able to create jobs but they will be the owner of the newly created job and other users can not MODIFY / VIEW / RESCHEDULE the jobs. Is there any way to customize permissions to windows logins to have permission to CREATE / MODIFY / DELETE / SCHEDULE jobs without granting them SYSADMIN privilages ? Appreciate your reply   Thank You Arunaroon

Install on New Windows7 - Getting Invalid SQL Server Agent credentials

Hi: I have a Developer License for MSSQL Server 2008.  Have just upgraded to Windows 7 Professional Edition.  When installing MS SQL Server, the setup shows that I have an instance of SQL Server Express already installed.  I am given a choice between Default Instance and Named Instance.  First time I chose named instance and then used the name of my machine - RBS1.  I received the following message:  The credentials you provided for the SQL Server Agent service are invalid. To continue, provide a valid account and password for the SQL Server Agent service. Went back and tried Default instance and got same answer.  Can't proceed to install.  Any help in this greatly appreciated. roger
