We have 2 SQL Servers running, each with different corp. databases. We now have a need to build queries using data from BOTH databases. They don't seem to want to talk to each other, is it possible something was missed on the set-up of 1 or both of the servers?

TIA for the help, I'm the only DB guy here - Admin/Server setup is a learning experience, and much of this was inherited!

R those 2 servers running on the same network? Same Workgroup ? Same Domain ?
Can u access one server from the other (in both ways ?)
Do u have same user setup on both machines (A user in SQL Server) ?
While on one server, open query analyzer and access a table in a DB in the other Server!!
Give a feedback to proceed.

"They don't seem to want to talk to each other"

How are you currently trying to get them to talk to each other?

You can use Linked Servers and do this, or maybe openrowset.
