update a linked Server

update a linked Server

(OP)
Hi,
I have an SQL_server 2008 R2 and linked Server to an MySq-Database.

Now I must update some tables (more then 20k) rows on the linked Server.
My Problem:
It takes very long when I update the tables on the linked Server:

update t
set t.field=s.field,t.field1=s.field1,t.field2=s.field2
from mysql...table1 t
inner join table s on t.key_field=s.key_field


best regar for youtr help

RE: update a linked Server

Maybe it would be quicker to export the table across servers and then update?

RE: update a linked Server

or update a local table and then replicate?
