sp_remoteoption

SQL Server 2000

Displays or changes options for a remote login defined on the local server running Microsoft® SQL Server™.

Syntax

sp_remoteoption [ [ @remoteserver = ] 'remoteserver' ]
    [ , [ @loginame = ] 'loginame' ]
    [ , [ @remotename = ] 'remotename' ]
    [ , [ @optname = ] 'optname' ]
    [ , [ @optvalue = ] 'optvalue' ]

Arguments

[@remoteserver =] 'remoteserver'

Is the name of the remote server that the remote login applies to. remoteserver is sysname, with a default of NULL. The server must be known to the local server (added using sp_addserver). remoteserver is the server that initiates remote procedure calls to the local server.

[@loginame =] 'loginame'

Is the login ID of the user on the local SQL Server. login is sysname, with a default of NULL. login must already exist on the local SQL Server.

[@remotename =] 'remotename'

Is the login ID of the user on remoteserver. remote_name is sysname, with a default of NULL. remotename must exist on remoteserver.

[@optname =] 'optname'

Is the option to set or turn off. optname is varchar(35), with a default of NULL. trusted is the only option. When the option is set, the local server accepts remote logins from remote servers without verifying user access for the particular remote login. The default server behavior is untrusted (trusted set to FALSE), resulting in password verification of the remote login when connecting to the local SQL Server from the remote server.

[@optvalue =] 'optvalue'

Is the value for optname. optvalue is varchar(10), with a default of NULL. Set to TRUE to set optname, FALSE to turn it off.
