You cannot use rebuild log to rebuild the log on a remote computer. You have to rebuild the log on a drive on the local machine.  You need to change this:

\\databasename\F\Mssql\MSSQL\Data\fake_log.ldf

to somethin like F:\Mssql\MSSQL\Data\fake_log.ldf'

Remote drives are not supported with SQL Server unless you have trace flag 1807 enabled per article:

This is highly not recommended by Microsoft.
