Hi,

I am executing a stored proc which runs fine in sql server management studio which uses link server. But when I put that
stored proc inside a job & runs that jobs, it fails.

Here is the security setting for Link server

I have added my windows login to (Local server login to remote server login mappings:)
selected the radio button (Be made using the login's current security context)

Please help.

Thanks

Does the account that runs sql agent jobs have rights to get that data from the remote server? When you run it in sql management studio, it's running as you, but as a scheduled job, it's running as the agent account, which may not have the same rights.

The easiest way to do it is by using the "SQL Server Configuration Manager" in your start menu that installed with SQL Server - there are about a dozen places that permissions need to change, and that app will handle them all for you instead of doing them by hand.

If you want to do it by hand, here's Microsoft's official walk-through:
