You need to create a linked server using sp_addlinkedserver procedure


EXEC sp_addlinkedserver
@server='TestServer',
@srvproduct='',
@provider='SQLNCLI',
@datasrc='YourServer\InstanceName'



Then, create linker server login


EXEC sp_addlinkedsrvlogin 'TestServer', 'false', 'sa', 'sa', 'password'



Thats it.

Now query the server,


select * from TestServer.master.dbo.sysobjects

Ramesh,

You can also use opendatasource to query remote servers. try that if u need it only for the hour else go for linked servers for permanent solution.
