We use SSIS packages to import files. These SSIS packages are run with sqljobs. During deployment the sqljobs are created with a script. That is the plan.
While running the script to create the sqljobs we got an error:
Error 14274: Cannot add, update, or delete a job (or its steps or schedules) that originated from an MSX server

Most solutions found on the internet talk about the name of the server. When you’ve renamed your Sql Server (yeah right) then you need to update the originating_server column in the sysjobs. This was not the case for us.
Over at msdn someone suggested to look at the variables. The first create sqljob would set the @jobid variable and the second create statement would use that value as input, where it is intended as output. The suggested SET @jobid = NULL before each call to sp_add_job did the trick.
