We have a new set up of Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bits and need to connect to another server of the same where we have an ADS data base version 10.10 installed. In the past we have been using data sources and stored procedures without any issues. In this new environment it will not let us connect.

We have set up a data source in 'system dsn' and are using 'Advantage StreamlineSQL 10.10.0049' and creating a data source pointing to a data dictionary type .add.

The linked server is using provider Microsoft OLEDB Provider for ODBC Drivers and we are referencing the data source name. A test connection, nothing happens

I have also noticed that there is a provider for 'Advantage OLDEDB Provider' in the 'Linked Servers provider' - should I use this instead?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Out of curiosity did you install the 64-bit ODBC driver?

Either the OLEDB provider or the ODBC driver should work.

We have installed adsodbc__x86_64 and also adsoledb_x86_x64 so it should work.

The linked server setup is working fine from a Windows 2003 server to the 2008 server where the ADS data base is located.

When we test using the 'run' command it will connect to the data base using the same connection string and just leaving out the WM2000DATA.add.

Is there another ADS driver we should try to install?

Either of these should work. It's hard to say with "nothing happens" as an error. Is the OLEDB provider giving the same issue?

Perhaps try setting an ODBC trace up and see if any additional information can be found. Another option is to maybe try the ODBC driver for 11.1
