Just make sure that the 'surface area configuration' under Server properties has the ad-hoc remote queries option enabled - this is disabled by default.

This is indicated in the link provided by aneeshattingal above

"OPENDATASOURCE can be used to access remote data from OLE DB data sources only when the DisallowAdhocAccess registry option is explicitly set to 0 for the specified provider, and the Ad Hoc Distributed Queries advanced configuration option is enabled. When these options are not set, the default behavior does not allow for ad hoc access."

example provided from URL:

SELECT *
FROM OPENDATASOURCE('SQLNCLI',
    'Data Source=London\Payroll;Integrated Security=SSPI')
    .AdventureWorks2008R2.HumanResources.Employee


When applying - get the following error:

Msg 15281, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
SQL Server blocked access to STATEMENT 'OpenRowset/OpenDatasource' of component 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries' because this component is turned off as part of the security configuration for this server. A system administrator can enable the use of 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries' by using sp_configure. For more information about enabling 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries', see "Surface Area Configuration" in SQL Server Books Online.

you need to enable  execution of adhoc distributed queries

exec sp_configure 'show advanced options',1
reconfigure
exec sp_configure 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries',1
reconfigure
