Hello,

Getting following error if i create an OLE DB soruce to remote DB

OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "(null)" returned message "Login timeout expired".
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "(null)" returned message "An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.".
Msg 2, Level 16, State 1, Line 0
Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2].


If i remove the OPENROWSET it works fine.

Is there any alternate to OPENROWSET, which will eventually remove the problem of "Ad-Hoc Remote Queries"
OR
How to fix the above error ?

Cheers

Check that you have

a) remote connections enable for named pipes in is enabled in SQL Server Surface Area Manager > Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections

b) OPENROWSET is enabled in SQL Server Surface Area Manager > Surface Area Configuration & Features

Great article Craig, just to acknowledge your work i also modified the reports to include a graph to get a quick glance before scanning the report to check for failed jobs.

Tx once more:-)

It's better to fail while trying, rather than fail without trying!!!

This post is pretty old but I have a question i have the report all set up but Im having issues getting one of my reports to show up one server. I added one more server to the report but the in tables if I select still cant get the job activity. This is a instance sql server thats the only difference from the other 9 servers.

I have 9 working and set up exaclty the same.

Any help would be appreciated
