The SERVER attribute-keyword is the name of the target computer that acts as a WMI server. This attribute-keyword is used primarily to specify a remote WMI server. If this attribute-keyword is omitted, the local WMI server is used. The following example shows a remote WMI server:
Windows Server 2003: The WMI Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) Adapter is not available in Windows Server 2003. When you upgrade to Windows Server 2003 the WMI ODBC Adapter is not removed if it already exists on a computer. For an alternative type of data access, see Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC).
