Linked Server error: Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [53] – MSDN TSQL forum


–> Question:

I am trying to create a linked server of a remote server in my local system.

and getting following error:

Linked Server error

Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [53]
OLE DB provider “SQLNCLI10” for linked server “MY_LINKED_SERVER” returned message “Login timeout expired”…
 

–> My Answer:

What SQL Server version you are working on?

Do you have proper access rights and permission to connect to the Remote server?

Check, if TCP/IP and Named Pipes are enabled in Remote Server, in Config Manager?

And, are you executing Linked Server from the same machine, or any remote client?

The error number is 53, which means Network Path is not Found, try to ping the server, check Server Name in your Linked Server DDL script, Also check for Windows Firewall settings.
