I've changed an SSIS package to use a 64-bit ODBC connection instead of 32-bit.

After deployment it works fine when executing the package but when running a SQL Server Agent job with the package it fails with:

An ODBC Error -1 has occurred


There was an error trying to establish an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) connection with the database server


The AcquireConnection call to the connection manager Athena West-1 64-bit failed with error code 0xC0014009.

What is the reason for this error?

  • I imagine the odbc connections are registered as user ODBCs, have you configured a proxy account on SQL Server agent to run the job as the said user?

  • is the 64 bit driver available on the server? Feb 4 at 2:15

My guess is a firewall is blocking the account, I'd recommend working with your security team to establish a service account in your AD, assuming this is a corporate environment

  • It works when running with the 32-bit version of the ODBC correction so it doesn't sound likely that it would be a firewall issue.
