I am getting the following error, about once per day, and the server it is trying to connect to is always the same server. I would perfer not to run a wide open trace on the production server.. so trying to find a much better way of finding out what is going on.

[SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 258) OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "R2D2" returned message "Login timeout expired". [SQLSTATE 01000] (Error 7412) OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "R2D2" returned message "Unable to complete login process due to delay in prelogin response". [SQLSTATE 01000] (Error 7412). The step failed.

What exactly are you trying to find out? The error is pretty specific: the authentication process is timing out.

Try increasing the connection timeout property on the actual linked server and increase the remote query timeout on the actual server. If it's not a timing issue, the link below may be of some assistance in determining the cause

Check if there is any resource contention (CPU, Memory, Ntk ..) \ blocking on the server that's causing this ..

It is set at 20 sec.. I would think that should be long enough...it is a SQL Auth login, so all the server has to do is process the request.

Yes, it should, but as sqlbuddy mentioned, it could be blocked for a variety of reasons. Try extending it to 180 for testing purposes only (or zero for no timeout) and see if it connects.
