I have two MS SQL Servers 2000 on two machines. Is there a way I can create a view table in ServerA, which would look at ServerB, using a ServerA user, who does not exists in ServerB.
First Link the ServerB to ServerA:
EXEC sp_addlinkedserver 'ServerB', 'SQL Server'
Then establish the user that we'll use to connect from ServerA to ServerB.
For that task we'll use a valid account in ServerA (with the appropriate permissions) and map it to a valid account in ServerB. That account must have permission to access the source table for the view in ServerA:
@rmtsrvname = 'ServerB',
@useself = 'false',
@locallogin = 'YourLocalUserFromA',
@rmtuser = 'YourRemoteUserFromB',
@rmtpassword = 'PasswordOf_rmtuser'
Log in to ServerA with the account that we mapped to ServerB and create the view:
CREATE VIEW dbo.MyView
SELECT Field1, Field2, FieldN
Start using it, and good luck:
SELECT * FROM MyView
