    Unanswered: Unable to add Linked Server via EM

    When I launch EM and go to Security -->Linked Server-->Add New Linked Server, the EM hangs when I click on Add New Linked Server. Any suggestions on what am I supposed to do out here.

    Whe you click new linked server on EM, this will trigger sql to look at all the drivers available in your server. How many drivers you have installed in your box? Check to see if any one is invalid. SQL may not give you an error message, it will just keep trying. I think that is you case.

    Thanks that helped. I had an invalid driver which when I uninstalled, I could create a linked server via EM.
