Recently had a server die and had to rebuild it from backups. Now I'm getting intermittent failures from several of my Access applications (which work using linked tables and passthrough queries). I also have another SQL server that is linked to the restored one, and many of the stored procedures include calls over this link.

Main problem is that the error messages are so generic, I can't even tell which of my 2 SQL Server's it can't reach. Most of the time it seems that some of the passthrough stored procedures run, but with some failures.

How can I tell which SQL server is not available? How can I troubleshoot and correct this issue as its intermittent and does not always fail?

EDIT: Any way to make this error message give me more information????
