writing views of views on another server

I have two sql servers (express 2008) on the same domain. On one I can write views that include tables/views from the second server, but on the second server I can not do the same.

I'm using the standard [servername].[database].[schema].[view]. It seems that the second server simply can't find/return the view from server one.

I've checked settings and things seem to be setup identically.

Do you have the servers linked in both directions?

Run this on the second server and it will tell you if you have a linked server setup:
FROM sys.servers

I thought it was linked, but just double checked just to be sure. It wasn't set up correctly. I fixed it, and now it works fine. Thanks.
