sql 2008 linked server

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

I am trying to create a linked server on our new sql 2008 machine.  I get the following error when I try to create it (login failed for user xxxx. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 18456).  I can sign-on to the server using ssms using the same username/password (on the same machine I am trying to create the linked server on).  I have tried creating other linked server and I get the same result.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

SQL Server 2008 Linked Server SELECT INTO issue

  
I have a SQL Server 2008 installation running on a clustered Windows Server 2008 R2. I am trying to execute a query on a remote SQL Server to create a table.

Unable to connect Excel 2003 from linked server in sql 2008 64 bit

  
Hi ALL,

I was unable to connect to excel 2003 with linked server created in sql server 2008 64 bit. This was working fine with sql server 2005 32 bit.

I know that there no 64 bit drivers for JET drivers, but i am looking for some alternative ways to do the same job.

I dont want to migrate to Excel 2007.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Thanks,

Linked server from SQL Server 2008 R2 to SQL Server 2005 not working

  

I'm trying to create a linked server from SQL Server r2 to SQL Server 2005 (both 64 bit Enterprise) using the following script

 EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedserver
 @server = N'TestLS'
 ,@srvproduct=''
 ,@provider='SQLOLEDB.1'
 ,@datasrc=N'dw_prod'
 ,@provstr='Integrated Security=SSPI;';
 
 GO

SELECT
    *
 FROM
    [TestLS].[I_OLAP].[dbo].[FACT_AUDIT]
I verified that the Kerberos is working.

When I try to run a four part query as below it gives me the error

Msg 18456, Level 14, State 1, Line 1
Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'.
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "TestLS" returned message "Invalid connection string attribute".


If I try to set up the linked server against localhost (i.e. SQL 2008 R2, it works just fine).


Thanks,

Distributed transaction using linked server not working in SQL Server 2008 64 bit

  

Hi. I have had an issue trying to get distributed transactions to work in SQL Server 2008 using a linked server. The error message I get is

OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "pod1" returned message "No transaction is active.".
Msg 7391, Level 16, State 2, Line 3
The operation could not be performed because OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "pod1" was unable to begin a distributed transaction.

My Environment:

Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 64 bit, SQL Server 2008 Enterprise 64 bit

Problem occurs with multiple different builds of SQL Server 2008 - I have been able to reproduce the problem with 10.0.1600.0, 10.0.1779.0 (CU 2), as well as 10.0.2531 (SP1)

 

I am aware that other people have had this issue and have reviewed all existing posts. I have verified that the MSDTC is configured correctly on both machines. I have also used DTCTester to verify that DTC is working correctly on all machines in question. None of the mentioned resolutions has solved this problem for me.

I am not seeing this problem occur on my 32 bit test machines - it is only occurring if at least one of the two machines is 64 bit.

SQL Server 2008 R2 Express 64bit Linked Server

  

Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64bit.
Sql Server 2008 R2 Express with Advanced Services 64bit.

I am converting an Access 2000 database to SQL Server. I developed a script that creates a linked server to import the data into SQL Server and manipulate it into the new structure. All works well on my 32 bit developement machine.

We just had the above new server built. The linked server is created without error, but trying to access the data in the Access database results in the error

'OLE DB provider Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 cannot be used for distributed queries because the provider is configured to run in single-threaded apartment mode."

 In searching, it seems that there is no 64 bit provider for jet.

Once the new system is up and running, the application also requires some regular imports of Access and Excel files, so this is not a one-time problem.

I can convert all Access and Excel files to 2007 version (ACE) if needed. However, I did try adding a linked server using the ACE provider and got the following error when trying to access the linked server

The OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" has not been registered. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 7403)

What are my options?

Do I need to uninstall 64bit SQL and install 32bit?

 


Linked server issue on test box, post upgrade 2005 to 2008 R2

  

In an effort to do some testing prior to upgrading our environment to 2008 R2, I made a test instance on our Dev box.  2005 instance, copied as many things as I could think of from various other instances.  Made a basic linked server to our main cluster, had a repeating job to email me results of a query across that link every few hours.

 

Everything was working fine until the upgrade finished.  It completed at ~7pm.  The email at 6PM came through fine (while the upgrade was in progress), the email at 8pm didn't come through.  Checked various things (DB mail was still working, tested fine).  It couldn't access the data across the linked server.  I tried deleting that link and remaking it.  Errors out.  Tried running the same scripts we use to create our standard linked servers, error out.  The only ones that I can set up and function are links to other instances on the same box.

I've looked around at other fixes for this error message and none seem to make any difference.  Log in with Domain cred's, log in with the sa account, no difference.  I can connect from other instances & servers back to this one, just not outbound from this one.  And it worked prior to the upgrade I applied to it.  All other instances on the box are 2005 as well.

Here is the message I ge

Suggestion about exporting data into Access database from sql server 2008 without Linked Server

  

Hello,

    We have a website that was using Sql server 2005. There was a option in Website where when a user clicks a button, Some tables data will be exported to an access database. To achieve this, we have setup a linked server to Access database. We have moved from sql server 2005 to 2008 (64bit). We did not want to use that option of having a linked server now. I am looking for different ways to achieve the task. We also donot want to use OPENROWSET and OPENDATASOURCE .

 

Can someone  give some insight about this?

 

Thanks,

Clustered SQL 2008 R2 x64, Oracle linked server works on one node, fails on the other

  

Juicy bits:

- SQL Server 2008 R2 x64

- Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (X64)   Apr  2 2010 15:48:46   Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation  Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7600: ) 

- Active/passive cluster

- Oracle client 11gR1

- "Allow Inprocess" provider option is enabled

 

I'm stumped.  Our development, QA and UAT environments are all running the same versions of Windows, SQL, and Oracle client.  Linked server between SQL and Oracle works just fine.

 

Production is clustered.  The linked server works just fine on one node of the cluster, but if we failover to the other node, attempts to use the linked server in any way, OPENQUERY, GUI, etc..., cause the following error:

OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "ORACLE" returned message "ORA-12634: Memory allocation failed".

Msg 7303, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "ORACLE".

 

What am I missing?  I've reinstalled the Oracle client on the defective node, verified that the SQL Server service account has full rights to the Oracle client dir

Issue with linked server 2008 (and R2) not an issue in 2005

  

Hi,

I have been using SQL 2005 successfully to connect to tables in a 10g Oracle data warehouse. I have been using the 11g client.

I have tried several times to get this working in SQL Server 2008 (and R2) and have tried the 10g and 11g clients...

I do a query like Select top 100 * from DWD..DW.IC_TRAN_PND and I get the error: 

"Invalid data for type "numeric".

 

I have read about the reasons for this but is there a way to make it work like it does in SQL server 2005?


Execute stored procedure on linked DB2 server from MS SQL 2008 SP1 64 bit problem

  
Hi everybody. I am trying to execute stired procedure on linked DB2 server from MS SQL 2008 x64
I installed IBM Access client x64 and on provider tab showed up 3 providers IBMDASQL,IBMDA400,IBMDARLA
I installed linked server as shown on this two links:

1)http://www.mcpressonline.com/database/db2/db2-integration-with-sql-server-2005-part-i-linked-server-enhancements.html
2)http://stackoverflow.com/questions/329051/execute-db2-iseries-stored-procedure-from-a-sql-2005-linked-server

I installed linked server using all this 3 providers

    @srvproduct=N'DB2 UDB for iSeries',
    @provider=N'IBMDASQL',-- provider for example

Cannot update Excel 2007 spreadsheet as linked server within SQL 2005 or SQL 2008 via ADO

  
Greetings!

I am having difficulty updating an Excel worksheet via the ACE.OLEDB.12.0
provider.

I have a worksheet defined as a linked server in SQL Server via this
provider, and all attempts to update the lone worksheet in this file as a
linked server results in the following:

OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "linked_excel"
returned message "Bookmark is invalid.".
Msg 7346, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Cannot get the data of the row from the OLE DB provider
"Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "linked_excel".

The query:
update linked_excel...sheet1$ set error_col='hithere' where
)='G'

However, when I try to perform precisely the same update against the same
source via openrowset, it works, to-wit:

update openrowset('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0','Excel
12.0;HDR=yes;Database=f:\path_to_file\filename.xlsx','select * from
[sheet1$]')
set error_col='hithere'
where
='G'

SELECT's performed against either version work properly.

The linked server behavior is consistent across SQL 2005 and 2008
installations.

I am concerned that this problem is an artifact of an OLEDB provider update that purposely disabled update b

Linked Server on SQL 2008 is slow

  

Hi,

I have 2 MS SQL servers one with SQL 2008(machine A) and another with MS SQL 2005 (machine B)

I created a linked server from Machine A to Machine B. Executed a simple query

Select * from [Machine B].Database.Xtable

It took nearly 30 seconds to bring back 496 rows of data.

Similarly created a linked server from machine B to machine A.Executed the simple query

Select * from [Machine A].Database.Xtable

It took less than a second to display the same 496 rows.

Is there any specific setting to be done on MS SQL 2008 to improve the performance.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hari
