@@REMSERVER enables a stored procedure to check the name of the database server from which the procedure is run.

The following example creates the procedure usp_CheckServer that returns the name of the remote server.


The following stored procedure is created on the local server SEATTLE1. The user logs on to a remote server, LONDON2, and runs usp_CheckServer.
