Hi SCC,

I have a stored procedure on server A that makes a linked server call to server B.... on server A I see the wait type is OLEDB so I want to look at the SPID on server B... is there a way to identify the remote SPID other than connecting to the server and doing an sp_who2 and looking for the client who made the connection and then username of the linked server?

Thanks!

If you want to identify the SPID on the remote Server you need to connect to the Remote Server.

I often use sp_who3 and sp_WhoIsActive. They will only show active SPIDS.

I actually found that you can find the SPID of the of a linked server call using master..sysprocesses on the local server under the waitresource field, INVENTORY is the alias to the linked server in this case and SPID 139 is remote SPID:

spid kpid blocked waittype waittime lastwaittype waitresource
53 8428 0 0x006D 78 OLEDB INVENTORY (SPID=139)
Go
