So running with Dom Admin did not resolve the issue?

What is the history of your SQL server?  I have seen issue with databases which have been deleted but are still listed in the master database.

Also have you seen this for 32bit running on 64 bit systems?  http://thedotnet.com/nntp/547835/showpost.aspx

***********************************************

have discovered the problem!

- The system which was having the problem is a newer 64bit server with
64bit Windows Server 2003.

- The DTS package is using a "Copy SQL Server Objects Task" task.

- I copied this DTS package from a 32 bit Windows Server 2003 system.

The point of all of this is that on the last tab (Copy) in defining
the "Copy SQL Server Objects Task" task contains a textbox
requesting the Script File Directory:.  The default value of this
field is the installation location of the SQL Server tools.  Typically
found at:  C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools

However; on the 64bit system the default location is at:  C:\Program
Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools

Since I copied this DTS package over to the 64bit system; it was
pointing to an invalid file system location.  And this is why I
received the Invalid OLEVERB error.

I would only get that error message in the Job History logs though.  I
discovered this was the problem when running the DTS Package without
the job, because it gave me a much more useful error message.  It was
something along the lines of, "Invalid specified path defined"
Anyway, it made me look into the package and look specifically for
anything specifying a file path; and thats exactly what I found.

Thanks for your interest in helping.
