Assume that you are connected to a server named Washington. First, construct a Transact-SQL statement to add Boston as a linked server to Washington. Second, write a line of code that executes a remote stored procedure, called usp_GetSalary, located on the Boston server in the Employees database, owned by dbo. The usp_GetSalary stored procedure accepts one argument, which is the ID of the employee. In your SQL statement, pass the value of 205 for this parameter.
