Is there a way to restrict linked server access for a particular login in sql server 2008r2.
Thanks in advance.
on this screen of the linked server properties, simply make sure the first radio button "not be made" is selected.
additionally, everyone who DOES have permissions needs to be mapped/added int eh grid pictured here as well.
when set up like that, the user will not have access/gets an error when trying to use it.
