Login Failure message with SSIS in SQL Agent

Hi All I recently did a SQL2005 migration and it has been a nightmare eversince. I ran SQL2005 on a virtual machine for around 2 months with very little to no issues but since the "live" implementation 1 week ago I have had errors all over. This one is one I am battleing with for quite some time now. The SQL server agent has a set schedule and the steps are SSIS packages. All the packages are set up with Windows authentication. The first package/step executes without a problem this step runns for around 45 minutes and succeeds but when step 2 is suppose to start the error below is shown and then a couple of steps on it starts working again. Login failed for user ‘Domainusername’. [CLIENT: <local machine>] This occurrs on TSQL statements as well within the job but the message is different saying that it cannot find server ‘local’. I do think that the 2 messages are linked but how I do not know. If I start the job manualy and skip step 1 all runs perfect. Any help would be appreciated. Jacques

Are you specifying the servername as [.] or local in any of your scripts?
Also ensure the SQLAgent domain account has relevant privileges on that database including the permission on SQL Server. Satya SKJ
