Scott, I tried a simple example:


exec ('select @@version') at POST01

it gives:
Msg 7202, Level 11, State 2, Line 2
Could not find server 'POST01' in sys.servers. Verify that the correct server name was specified. If necessary, execute the stored procedure sp_addlinkedserver to add the server to sys.servers.


does your method involved linked server usage?

is it more easy to make work without linked server or sys.servers entry?

Yes, it uses linked servers.  It's going to be more difficult to run a lot of code on other servers without using a linked server.

OK.  we will get permissions to set up linked servers.

will [sqlcmd Utility] also need linked servers?
