Ok heres the situation:
We have a linked server from SQL 2000 to a foxpro dbf.
In our test enviroment we had the Foxpro and SQL server on the same machine. The linked worked perfect.

Now we are ready to implement it. When we made a link to the real FoxPro dbf nothing is showing up in the tables.

The  FoxPro is on a seperate machine under another domain in active Directory. We desperately need to connect to the FoxPro table under our current setup. Even suggests point in the right direction would help!!!

Well 10_ hours later 2 pots of coffee and lots of trial and error it is working. We thought it was a rights issue and it ended up being just that. SQL server agent had log in with an NT account not the system account. After we did that everything is working great! Hope this helps anyone other there that ever goes through this and saves them some time!
