I have to migrate to a new server and domain. I have serveral servers which have links to this server. I did the linked server with the server name (maybe not the best), but for the developers they liked the idea that the link gave them access to all the read-only database objects they needed. I realize you could do the other way of having an oledb source for each catalog(database) but this would have required a catalog/link for each database ( Ihave 6 db's that need to be exposed). ANy better approaches?

Your approach of using the linked server would be the approach that I would use; especially since the data is read_only.
