SQl Server 2005 Express to AS/400 DB2 Problem

Last Modified: 2013-12-06

We had a server crash earlier in the month.  The server hosted a customized intranet that was linked to a SQL server.  The SQL server was also linked to our AS/400 i-Series server.  I can't figure out how to re establish the connection between the SQL and AS400.  I can ping the AS400, log into through client access, and test a UDL connection... BUT SQL will not see it.  I've also tried Linked Server in SQL with out success.  

I'm sure it's either the DSN config, Linked Server values, or a SQL config...  Need some help!

I would need details because I'm a network guy than a programmer...
