I am working on UIP from 9.4 M7 to 9.4 M8 on Linux 7.9 environment. The installation was successful, when it comes to the configuration step, the connection to the metadata server keeps failing using the sasadm@saspw user. sasauth.conf is set use PAM Authenticaion, I've also added the openssl lib to the path. I've already opened a case for this, but it is moving really slow. If any of you faced this issue or have some ideas, I would really appreciate it.

I think you need to use an OS account for configuration, not a SAS metadata account. The SAS install account is a good choice.

Thanks for your reply. So, I am using sasadm@saspw which is an internal account. I tried your suggestion and used sas user which is the OS account, it still gives the same error "Unable to connect to a SAS Metadata Server with the specified connection information"


In that case I suggest you open a Tech Support track for your problem. I'm assuming that your metadata server has all services running.

Yes, A Track has already been opened and have been told that this is an isolated issue and no one has reported so far. I will update this thread when we have found a solution.
