@@RemServer – SQL Server

@@RemServer: this function returns the name of the remote SQL server name using stored procedure. It enables a stored procedure to check the name of the database server from which the procedure is run.


I have created a stored procedure in Dev1a server as shown below.

pic1If we execute this stored procedure locally it will return null. Because, The value of the remserver function to the local server is null.

pic2if we execute this procedure with server name it returns the remote server name.

pic3Microsoft said that this function will be removed in the future version of SQL Server. So, we have to use linked server in the new application development.
