you can use a UNC path, assuming permissions for the network are in place:

RESTORE DATABASE MyDatabase FROM DISK='\\LOWELLSMACHINE\c$\SQLBackups\2008Backups\MyDatabase.bak'

Hi Krasavita,
I could not find any method to directly restore on another server through query. Probably you can use osql command utility from inside the job to get it done. Alternately, you can create a windows scheduled task on the server2 using osql commmand line to resotre on server2.

i missed the part about restoring on the remote server.

if you have a linked server, i know you can do EXECUTE AT;

here's an example of creating a table on the remote server, you could change that to run the BACKUP command instead.


EXEC sp_addlinkedserver 'SeattleSales', 'SQL Server'
GO
EXECUTE ( 'CREATE TABLE AdventureWorks2008R2.dbo.SalesTbl
(SalesID int, SalesName varchar(10)) ; ' ) AT SeattleSales;



untested:

EXECUTE('RESTORE DATABASE MyDatabase FROM DISK=''E:\Backups\MyDatabase.bak''') AT SeattleSales

Can you just copy the backup file to a place that is accessible to the second server?
