sp_servercaps system procedure

Displays information about a remote server's capabilities.

The server must be defined with the CREATE SERVER statement to use this system procedure.

  • @sname   Use this CHAR(64) parameter to specify a server defined with the CREATE SERVER statement. The specified @sname must be the same server name used in the CREATE SERVER statement.


This procedure displays information about a remote server's capabilities. SQL Anywhere uses this capability information to determine how much of a SQL statement can be forwarded to a remote server. The ISYSCAPABILITY system table, which lists the server capabilities, is not populated until after SQL Anywhere first connects to a remote server.
