SSIS Job Cannot Start - A required privilege is not held by the client

I'm stumped on this one. We had to run the gpuupdate /force last week and then the job started failing
with this error:

The process could not be created for step 1 of job (reason: A required privilege is not held by the client). The step failed.

The Agent service runs under a Domain account. I have

  • changed it to Local system
  • stopped/started agent
  • changed Agent to run under the Domain account
  • stopped/started agent

The SSIS job still fails.

(Jobs that only execute TSQL are ok) It's only SSIS packages that can't run now.
Appreciate any tips. Thanks

SSIS also runs under a service account. Have you changed that as well?
