SQL Server Script

I have a script which runs fine on my SQL Server Management Studio, but when I run it from a bat file I get a Error message

Change Database Context to VBScanWDB
Msg 7202, level 11 , state 2, Server MASChiCK\SQLExpress, line 2
Could not find server 'ChickRWJ in sysservers. Exe sp_addlinkedserver to add the server to syservers.

The CHICKRWJ is already linked into the Server so why would I run the addlinkserver  Attached is my SQL Script
sqlcmd -S 64.57.248.239,9998\CHIEF -l 65534 -U sa -P golf  -i C:|name.sql

Open in new window

You have to modify your command as follows (using the -Q switch to issue a commandline query and exit)

sqlcmd -S 64.57.248.239,9998\CHIEF -l 65534 -U sa -P golf  -Q "select * from master.sys.servers"

Your problem is probably what DB you connect to by default.  Add the specific db to your command string.

It doesn't look like a problem with DB not being specified in the command, if DB is omitted the default database for the login will  be used automatically (and besides this is the SA login)..

Can you verify if the specified linked server does exist by running the following command using sqlcmd -

select * from master.sys.servers

Use VBScanWDB
GO

INSERT INTO ActivityCode
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[ActivityCode]

INSERT INTO Department
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[Department]

INSERT INTO Employee
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[Employee]


INSERT INTO IM2_InventoryItemWhseDetl
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[IM2_InventoryItemWhseDetl]

INSERT INTO IM3_ItemCosting
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[IM3_ItemCosting]

INSERT INTO Parts
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[Parts]

INSERT INTO Settings
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[Settings]

INSERT INTO WorkTicket
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[WorkTicket]

INSERT INTO WorkTicketParts
SELECT * FROM [CHICKRWJ].[VBScanWDB].[dbo].[WorkTicketParts]

GO

The Link Server name is CHICKRWJ how come I can run this from a Bat file useing

sqlcmd  -i c:\DELVBScanData.sql
sqlcmd  -i c:\ImportVBscanData.sql

bat file

Probably because the linked server does not exist on "64.57.248.239,9998\CHIEF", but it does on your local box.
