AFAIK, there is no option to influence the automatically created directory name. But you could set up paths for the individual users in your physical work location and put that into the -work commandline option:
I need to add to my previous post: if you use the cleanwork utility to get rid of orphaned work directories, you must now write a script that runs cleanwork individually for every username subdirectory.
That is true, But we are a small SAS shop and all of my users are not logging in at night so I have that clean up written into by metadata backup job that just deletes all folders beyond "LEV1\SASUser". I've had this setup working for 10 years now. It works great for us.
I modified the SASv9_usermods.cfg file located in .....SAShome...\Lev1\SASApp folder and added:
/* Setup the MYSASFILES system variable */ -SET MYSASFILES "D:\SASUser\Lev1\SASUser\!username"
This way all of my users folder are in one central location so I can find them quickly and also, it's easy to clean them up this way.(when users sessions are interrupted). I have a job that cleans the folders up every night)
