RemotePassword Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The RemotePassword property specifies a password used when a distributed query, or another Microsoft SQL Server process, accesses a data store using a linked server OLE DB data source definition.

.RemotePassword= value


An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list


A string that matches the SQL Server data type sysname.


Write-only prior to adding the LinkedServerLogin object to its containing LinkedServerLogins collection.

HRESULT SetRemotePassword(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);

When an OLE DB data source definition, called a linked server, is created, a login record is created that simply passes connection authentication data to the linked server when an attempt is made to establish a connection to the data source.

Configure a linked server definition to use specific authentication data by creating additional records mapping logins on the linking server. For more information about using SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) to configure linked server security, see LinkedServerLogin Object

Creating a LinkedServerLogin object and modifying a RemotePassword property value require membership in either the sysadmin or securityadmin role.
