Procedures Crossing Servers

Question:
I am creating a data warehouse and need to SELECT and INSERT data across servers using SQL Server 6.5.

Is there any way I can code this in my stored procedure? I am not aware of any syntax that will allow me to do it.

Answer:
Basically, you have to inform each server of the other’s existence. Add the server name of the remote server to the sysservers table of each server, so that each one is defined as a remote server to the other.

Once the servers know about each other, create logins for the servers so they can interact.

Once they are identified as remote servers and have been given remote logins, then one server can ask the other one whatever it needs to.
