Question 14


Answer C is correct. You must have a linked server defined at the location at which you are executing the query. A remote server is antiquated technology that should not be used and is not supported for use in SQL Server 2005. An alias does not help the situation; it only provides for another name. Four-part names do not work if no linked server is defined.
