Need some help ASAP! Trying to set up a linked server from SQL 2005(64 bit) to SYBASE v.15.0 (32-bit).

I have the ASE drivers installed on the 2005 box, but get errors. Please advise.

Tried both MDASQL and SQLOLEDB as the provider, but no good.

The latest msg I get is:
OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "MySYBASEServer" returned message "[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified". <-- I DID set a DSN up and tested connection successfully!


-- Adding linked server:

exec sp_addlinkedserver @server = SYBASESRV' ,

@srvproduct = 'Sybase',

@provider = 'SQLOLEDB',

@datasrc = 'SYBMaster'

-- Adding linked server login:

sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @useself='false ', @rmtsrvname = 'SYBASESRV',

@rmtuser = 'myuser',

@rmtpassword = 'mypassword'

Also tried:

EXEC sp_addlinkedserver
@server = 'SYBASESRV',


@provider = 'SQLOLEDB' ,

@provstr = 'DRIVER=Sybase ASE OLEDB Provider;SRVR=SYBASESRV;UID=mylogin;PWD=mypassword'

I would configure an ODBC connection and use it to make linked server work.
