Linked Server: Database not in catalog

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
A database isn't showing up in the catalog of a linked server.  I've checked and the user set up in the linked server connection is a member of the datareader role and has view schema rights to that db.  What else can/should I check?  I've ran into this before but can't remember what I did to fix it.  

This is a 2008 to 2008 server.
