    am having a bit of a linked server problem .

    I created a sql server linked server and it's been working fine for last 2 years and suddenly not working .

    SQL Server Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.5324.00 (X64) Aug 24 2012 18:28:47 Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 2)

    Oracle client version Oracle - OraClient11g_home1

    Cannot create an instance of OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server

    Ps : we have enabled Allow in Process in Sql Server for Oracle Provider

    anyone got any ideas on this and what can be done to avoid this happen again

    many thanks

    any Service Pack applied to Windows or SQL Server?

    any change to the Oracle client?

    Either way, seeing the whole error stack wouldn't hurt.

    By the way... check if the Oracle credentials the Linked Server is using are still valid on the Oracle database.
