I am getting the following error while accessing data from SQL Server 2000 from SQL Server 2005.
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "hqserver" returned message "Communication link failure".
Msg 10054, Level 16, State 1, Line 0
TCP Provider: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.
Msg 18456, Level 14, State 1, Line 0
Login failed for user 'netstats'.
I tried connecting from SQL Server Management Studio and I was able to connect using the netstats user id and execute queries against the database.
But if I execute the same query from using the linked server, I get the mentioned error.
Any help is much appreciated.
