I am working on some policy based management issues where I need to run some tasks across my servers. To do so would require me to create some one-the-fly linked servers that would have sysadmin rights and destroy themselves after they are finished. Then I came upon this: http://blogs.msdn.com/sqlrem/archive/2008/02/04/multiple-server-query-execution-in-sql-server-2008.aspx Now I can see myself running maintenance and scripts across servers with the greatest of ease. I hope that Microsoft has this out of the box, secure and without bugs. Is this too much to ask for?
