    The link specifies how to configue proxy account. My doubt is why the error is logging ( reason) and when the agent service is recycled it is working fine.

    Because of the lack of privileges in running with the Proxy account.
    Have you locked down XP[-]CMDSHELL for non sysadmin users?
    Also make sure the SQLAgent has got relevant privileges when this job is running.
