Hello all,

Which option is better is i need to access table A in server S since server S2?

OPTION A: publish this table in server S an subscribe in server S2?
OPTION B: make a direct reference in my procedure in server s2 as "S2.myDataBase.dbo.tableA"

I would recommend option B for the very brief information you've given us. We are using option A on some systems, but that's because we have a reporting requirement.
