comment Creating a New Database Across a Network with SQL Server 2008 R2
The instance of SQL Server is running under the 'Administrator' account. On VAION I have given full permissions to 'Everyone', which I appreciate is everyone on the local machine (VAION), but I am not sure how to give explicit permission to users on VAIOE across the network. I am sure the permission I have set are working (real and write) as I can create whatever file I want on the C:Drive of VAION from VAIOE without issue.

harrymc. Thanks for your help so far and I apologise about my lax turn-around on responses. Despite my initial thoughts following a brief test, this has not solved the issue for me. The mass of coding I had to do is done and I now have some time to look into this issue with more depth. I enabled the 'sa' account, logged in and reran the above setup queries. I logged out of SQL and of Windows 7, and back in as a standard user, again I get the "linked server null" error. Any other ideas?

Sorry about the delay in the response. I have checked this on my local setup an it has seemed to do the trick. However, the problem takes a slightly different guise on a seperate setup so it will be interesting to see what happens there. Agian, thanks for your time and sorry about the lax response times - I have been upto my eye-balls!
