Problem:

I was trying to execute the SSIS package through SQL Server Agent and got the error below.

Error Message :

This occurs when loading a package and the file cannot be opened or loaded correctly into the XML document. This can be the result of specifying an incorrect file name when calling LoadPackage or the specified XML file has an incorrect format.

Solution 1:

The SQL Server Agent service account (i.e, in my case NT Service\SQLSERVERAGENT) does not have access to the directory where the SSIS package is present. This issue can be solved by providing Read permission on the directory to the service account.

Solution 2:

Create a proxy account with credentials which have permission to read from the directory and then run the SQL Server Agent job step as the proxy account.
