Linked Server Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'

I set up a linked server to a server named "DB6" on a domain I will call "DOMAIN2". I created the linked server and have tried every permutation of security context I can think of but keep getting "Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'" when I try to view the tables.

I was able to link back to my source server which I will call "DB1" (which is in a different domain).

My latest try:  set password on sa, used sa and password to connect to linked server.

Authentication on both machines is Windows And SQL Server.

I suspect domain-related issues are behind this but I am not sure what to ask my System Admin. I asked him to allow anonymous logins but he said he will not do that.

Thanks

Hello,


1) Define a trust relationship whereby the domain containing the SQL Server "trusts" the domain which contains the users (and vica-versa "is trusted by"...) This will allow you to "see" the accounts in Domain A in your User Manager.

2) Create a local group on the SQL Server in question. This will be the receptacle of the trusted domain accounts you need to provide access for.

3) Using SQL Server Security Manager, give the newly-created local group rights to the database(s) you wish them to access. Be sure to automatically create SQl Logins for them using the check box!!!

4) In SQL Enterprise Manager, set the permissions on the object(s) so that the user(s) in question can Select, Update, etc... as necessary.

Jose

5) These users will now be able to use SQL Server tables through any means (ODBC, DB-LIB, etc...)

I am not sure if this will work, but it is the only response I have received and it is quite detailed. Thanks. I will try this and see if it works. In the meantime, I worked around the problem.
