Access has to be running on a Winders machine. At least the drivers. Another option might be to migrate the data, and use ODBC and linked tables to let Access still work temporarily, but really have the data already transitioned.
Otherwise it is a weird linked ODBC bouncing off a Windows machine on the way to the data.
