I'm using a proxy to run several SQL Server agent jobs.
Essentially the jobs copy data from Excel spreadsheets into a dbs via a network shared drive. The jobs have been failing for several weeks with the following error:
"Unable to start execution of step 1 (reason: Error authenticating proxy SERVERNAME\sharename, system error: ConnGetProxyPassword). The step failed."
when I run it under the proxy account, if I run it under the SQL Server Agent then I don't have permission errors.
I've recreated the proxy accounts but this has made no difference. The password for the proxy is correct.
Banging my head against this - any suggestions? It's not password length which I've seen suggested online.
