How can i add linked server using Enterprise Manager ?
Posted on 2010-09-19
I have two databases on separate servers and I need to combine the data from the two servers.
I tried adding linked server using Enterprise Manager and I chose other data source
--> Microsoft OLE DB provider for SQL server, product name --> SQL Server, data source --> the IP address of the other server (also tried the server name) , provider string -->SQLOLEDB, Catalog -->the DB I need to retrieve the data from.
In the security tap I wrote the local account and the remote account and both of them have the same credentials same user name and same password, from the connections I chose be made using this security context and I typed the SA user name and password (the SA password of database on the other server I am trying to connect).
I got an error message access is denied.
I don't know what the problem is as this is the first time for me to create linked server.
