I have a problem with ssis2008

I built a package that have a connection with SQL Server authentication (username : sa).

When I use BI, it works fine but when I build a job that used this package it doesn't work.

I tried several solution for example change the package protection level or using xml configuration file to save password but none of them worked. Can some body help me?

Errors are:

Log in failed for user sa


Can not decrypt the password

What protection level do you have for the package ? – praveen Apr 6 '13 at 13:22
You shouldn't be using the sa account - not even in testing .... – marc_s Apr 6 '13 at 13:23
