    Unanswered: Instance of OLE DB provider can not be created

    Hello. I get the following error message from Server-Agent-Jobs:

    Cannot create an instance of OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "xxx". [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 7302).

    The linked server already exists a long time and has always worked. I can still see all the tables and can query the data via select. The stored procedure that is called in the job, can I call manually. Only by job, it will go wrong.

    Does anyone know what can I do? Thanks for the help.

    Jobs run in the security context of the SQLAgent account. Sounds like the SQLAgent account doesn't have sufficient permissions

    This tip has brought me into the right direction. On the SQL Agent account, nothing has changed. But after a restart of the SQL Server Agent it works now.
    Thank you.
