In SQL Management Studio, run the following query against the NQCCDB Database:
Select * from <hostname>.<qdb>.dbo.object
Replace <hostname> with the name of the SQL Server hosting the repository in question, and replace <QDB> with the actual repository name (which is QDB by default).
If you get rows returned, you do not have a linked server problem. If you get an error, you have a Linked Server issue. NetIQ is not responsible for Linked Server issues, you should work with a SQL Server Administrator or Microsoft to resolve this issue.
