We have been hitting the sort execution failure recently on our batch jobs. memsize in sasv9_usermods.cfg was already set .
Appreciate if someone confirm that if we apply changes to the sasv9_usermods.cfg file to adjust sortsize, do we need to restart our SAS servers or it will automatically be in effect on our next batch run?
The config file I'm pertaining to is the one which usually sits in the SAS/Config/Lev1 foldfsor
As I understand it batch jobs run in their own SAS session and not via any SAS services. As long as your batch job is run in the Lev1 environment, say for example using the LSF scheduler in Management Console then it should pick up your config.
You can confirm if your settings are working or not by running PROC OPTIONS in a batch job.
