SQL server 2008 r2 to connect to SQL Server 2008 r2 running ADS 10.10

Have a situation where we currently are using SQL Server 2005 to connect to SQL Server 2008 r2 running ADS 10.10. We are using stored procedures with open query, linked server and data source connection to data dictionary. This been working fine for years

Now moving to a newer server, from the SQL Server 2005 to a SQL Server 2008 r2, we are having issues connection to the same ADS database, we are having issues getting connected through the linked server and not able to run the stored procedures. Looks like the server comes

to a hault when trying to test connection

The configuration of the linked servers are exactly the same (MS OLE DB provider for ODBC drivers), data sources are the same and stored procedures are all the same. Tried even using the Advantage OLE DB Provider without any luck.

My question is: Have others experienced issues connecting from SQL Server 2008 r2 to another SQL server 2008 r2 running ADS 10.10? We seem not to be able to figure out what is wrong, whether it is on the ADS side or the side we are running SPs from. Any input would be appreciated.

Thank you all.

    I'm not sure there is enough information here.

    Can you describe the setup a bit more?

    Is is really SQL Server -> SQL Server2 -> ADS?

    At which point is the failure? SQL Server -> SQL Server2 or SQL Server2 -> ADS?

    You mentioned testing the server comes to a hault. Which server? SQL Server or ADS?

    Are any error messages displayed?

    Does ARC (Advantage Data Architect) connect ok?

    Are there any errors in the Advantage error log at the time of the test?

      Thank you Edgar,

      I think the drivers are OK because we use the same driver to connect (MSDASQL) to connect to other data servers and data bases without problem. I will take another look and see what I can find.

      Thanks again.
