Do every SAS user need to have a login on the App server

A quick SAS admin question...

 
Do every SAS user need to have a login on the App server...
 
We’ve run into an issue with an SAS App server caused by the SAS clients.  As of right now, no one that does not have an existing profile on the server can log into it.  The problem is that for some reason SAS is running using files located within the Default user profile (c:\Users\Default\Documents\My SAS Files\9.4 on the
As of right now, no one can execute SAS code in SAS EG without having an existing login on the SAS App server.  The problem is that for some reason SAS is running using files located within the Default user profile (c:\Users\Default\Documents\My SAS Files\9.4 on the server) ...
 
One of the suggested solutions is that we replace "?FOLDERID_Documents\MySASFiles\9.4" to "D:\SASUSER\!username"  for MYSASFiles and SASUSER set statements in the sasv9.cfg file...so that the Admins don't need to create a local server login to the SAS user...
 
Is that a correct assumption...if yes, what impact will it have other than restarting object spawner?
Also, how can we test that it’s been implemented as expected?
 
Please let me know...Thanks in advance.

Re: Do every SAS user need to have a login on the App server

Starting a workspace server requires a defined user on the server. EG requires a workspace server, so you need to have defined users in the OS level (which also need to be defined in SAS metadata).

By default yes. No, only if you are using SAS Token Authentication.
