DTS Lookup Error - Could not find server '' in sysservers.
Posted on 2004-04-23
Error Source : Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
Error Description : Could not find server '' in sysservers. Execute sp_addlinkedserver to add the server to sysservers.
I am getting this error when I try and create a lookup for a data transformation in a DTS package. The lookup is needed on the local server. At a point in the past this machine has been renamed, which may have caused the problem, and if I had more time I would rebuild the system as it needs it anyway. However, it is not possible now and I need to have this DTS package created and tested ASAP.
Whats causing the error, how do I solve it so that I can create a Lookup on the local machine. Currently I can make the lookup, and it works ok, but this error does not bode well for future performance.
