Hi,

I'm currently trying to replicate an entire SQL2000 database to another server. The distributer fails while trying to deliver the snapshot to the subscriber with this error

- Could not find server 'UKSQL01' in sysservers. Execute sp_addlinkedserver to add the server to sysservers. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 7202)

The server UKSQL01 no longer exists, however it is still being referenced somewhere in the database i'm trying to replicate. I tried to create a linked server anyway with that name so there would be a reference in sysservers but that failed too.

Is there a way i can check all procs views and functions for references to this defunct linked server? Or a peice of software i can use to search for this reference in all objects? So i can remove it.

Thanks

Hi,

You could try SQL Search from RedGate that has proved to be an invaluable (free too!) tool for me at times.

Thanks,


Simon

You can search text in syscomments table like so:
SELECT DISTINCT so.name
FROM syscomments sc
INNER JOIN sysobjects so ON sc.id=so.id
WHERE sc.TEXT LIKE '%UKSQL01%'
