Dear all expertist,

Right now we plan to create link server for MS SQL server and we run this script:

/****** Object:  LinkedServer [TWDB]    Script Date: 03/13/2012 14:14:10 ******/
IF  EXISTS (SELECT srv.name FROM sys.servers srv WHERE srv.server_id != 0 AND srv.name = N'TWDB')EXEC master.dbo.sp_dropserver @server=N'TWDB', @droplogins='droplogins'
GO

/****** Object:  LinkedServer [TWDB]    Script Date: 03/13/2012 14:14:11 ******/
EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedserver @server = N'TWDB', @srvproduct=N'SQLCL10', @provider=N'SQLNCLI10', @datasrc=N'<IP address>,<port number>', @catalog=N'TRACKWORKDB'
 /* For security reasons the linked server remote logins password is changed with ######## */
EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @rmtsrvname=N'TWDB',@useself=N'False',@locallogin=NULL,@rmtuser=N'capdiadmin',@rmtpassword='########'

GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'collation compatible', @optvalue=N'false'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'data access', @optvalue=N'true'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'dist', @optvalue=N'false'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'pub', @optvalue=N'false'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'rpc', @optvalue=N'false'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'rpc out', @optvalue=N'false'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'sub', @optvalue=N'false'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'connect timeout', @optvalue=N'0'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'collation name', @optvalue=null
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'lazy schema validation', @optvalue=N'false'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'query timeout', @optvalue=N'0'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'use remote collation', @optvalue=N'true'
GO

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'TWDB', @optname=N'remote proc transaction promotion', @optvalue=N'true'
GO

So the question is, anyway to make link server connect using server name instead of IP address?
