    When ever you work with linked servers, make sure you give full four-part name without any short cuts.

    In your script you are not passing the name of owner object. (I can see double dots, which holds good for internal to a server but not for linked servers as far I understand)

    Four Part Name: Servername.Database.owner.objectname

    Did you name your linked server as: [] ???
