when I run the query: select * from openquery(TEST, 'select * from tb_alltypes')

[OLE/DB provider returned message: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified]
OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'MSDASQL' IDBInitialize::Initialize returned 0x80004005:   ].
Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

I had to do these steps; on the sql box:
* install the mysql client odbc or oledb software (watch out if you have to install 32 or 64 bit!)
* if it was ODBC; I created a system DSN name in the appropriate ODBC tool (32 vs 64 bit); and use that name in the linked server config
* if it was OLEDB; I could just use the remote server name directly without the DSN
