I loaded it yesterday. Too early to tell but the installation itself when without a hitch and no demons as of yet...

saw this on usenet:


SQL Experts,

1. I have two Windows 2003 Standard Server boxes.
2. Both host MS/SQL Server Standard 2000.
3. Server#2 is linked to Server#1 using SQL/Enterprised Link Server applet.
4. Both servers have Win2k3 Service Pack#1 installed.
5. Both server enable firewall via SCW (Security Config. Wizard). I locked
everything but SQL Server Port (1433).
6. Both use TCP/IP as top (default) network protocol.
7. All Windows XP clients can read/write to and from the two SQL servers
without problem (Windows and SQL Auth. are used).

Problem: Server #2 cannot read data from Server#1 it links to. It said
Sever#1 is not running or access denied. Even if SQL Ports on both boxes are
widely openned. because clients from outside can get to it. Hopwever, if I
disable firewall on Server# 1, then Server# 2 will be able to read data from
#1. I really like the FW in service pack# 1. But if I have to disable it in
order to use "Link Server" (server-to-server) in MS/SQL then this new thing
(FW) in W2k3 is really useless ! Therefore I assume that I am missing
something very important ?

Has anyone else seen a problem like this?
