    Could you post the exact error message?

    I have links all over the place with different SQL versions (ranging from 2008 R2 to 2016) and everything seems to work without  much trouble.

    What version of SQL are you using on the 2 instances?  What provider are you using?

    What options are you turning on on the linked server?

    If you run just a VERY basic linked server creation script, does it succeed?  Something like:

    EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedserver @server = N'TESTLINK', @srvproduct=N'', @provider=N'SQLNCLI', @datasrc=N'server\instance,port'
    /* For security reasons the linked server remote logins password is changed with ######## */
    EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @rmtsrvname=N'TESTLINK',@useself=N'False',@locallogin=NULL,@rmtuser=N'sa',@rmtpassword='########'

    That should create a very basic linked server for you connecting as sa (change the remtuser and rmtpassword values).
