Querying Linked Servers

To issue full-text queries against linked servers, you must first create a full-text index on the target tables and columns on the remote server. Next you must add the remote server as a linked server. That being done, you can use a four-part name in CONTAINS or FREETEXT full-text queries to query the target tables and columns on the linked server.
