We recently installed a new SAS Server on Linux (9.4M6). We installed the EM 15.1 client on a machine. When we tried to start a new SAS Miner session, the following error appear:
We opened the sassw.config and copy the sas environment url and paste it directly on a web browser. The sas-environment.xml opens fine. As you can see, we have two environments on the file because we have the legacy server (version 9.4M4) until we complete the migration to the new server.
Suggest to try these options as shared in the KB link.
Diagnosing and resolving "The application was unable to load the SAS environment definitions."
This error message typically occurs when attempting to launch SAS Enterprise Miner Client. The message suggests that SAS Enterprise Miner Client was able to find the value for the SASENVIRONMENTSURL key, but encountered a problem when using that value as a URL. The problem could occur while accessing the URL, while inspecting the XML contents, or while validating the server(s) that are referenced in the XML.
As a first step, attempt to access the URL with a web browser on the problematic machine. If a web browser on the same machine can return the XML successfully, then investigation should focus on further diagnostics within SAS Enterprise Miner Client: em_console output. See the section"Collecting em_console output"for details.
If a web browser on the same machine cannot return the XML successfully, then investigation should turn to the server or to the connection between the client and server. Is the server process serving up the XML and running as expected? See the section"Inspecting server status"and"Collecting relevant server logs"for details.
