MS SQL Linked server

I'm trying to create a linked server to SYBASE database. I've installed Sybase client on the MS SQL 2008 machine and created ODBC connection and tested it and working fine.

On MS SQL, once I try to create the linked server, I'm receiving the attached error

Please post screenshots either as embed image in the post or as direct attachment. But not embedded in a Word document..

Btw, the error message says it clearly: The driver needs to access a file. You need to remember that SQL Server is run under a different account than you. So it normally should not have access to this folder or file.

Ste5an your comment noted.

As for the permission, Im logging with my user name who is a sysadmin. I'm the domain admin also with full permission!

I just noted that the file Phoenix.ids is not available in this C:\SYBASE\OLE folder? and I have no idea why it is trying to read from this directory.

I want to stress again that the SYBASE OLE is connection is working fine

It's not your account, it's the SQL Server account which normallly not have the permission.

The missing file is an detail of the Sybase driver, which I don't know. So you should search the docs for this.
