SQL Server script to replicate all data from a remote database to a local database

Replicates all data from the remote database to the local database. The local contents are removed, all current local data is erased and not recoverable.
You have to set the value for @LINKED_SERVER_NAME as your local Linked Server name for the remote SQL Server instance.
