Error when login to metadata server in SAS EG

 

Hi,

I hope that I'm in the right place to ask this question. One of my colleagues is new in SAS and has problem

to connect to the server in SAS EG. She is getting error for SASUSER library. Please refer to the attached file.

What can be the problem?

Re: Error when login to metadata server in SAS EG

The first line is all you need.

[Error] The launch of the server process failed because of an invalid or inaccessible SASUSER library.

First of all, you have to check how the SASUSER library is defined in the workspace server configuration. If both of you use the same logical workspace server, just start your own EG, connect to the server, open Libraries, right-click on SASUSER, and select Properties.

This will reveal the path name to the SASUSER.

Then you can check if the user has write access to the required path.

Hi @Doriana;

 

Please check this community page for your referance:

https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Enterprise-Guide/SASApp-Connection-Issue/td-p/177300

 

It is about the same issue, which you are facing right now,

and also try the steps which @KurtBremser mentioned for diagnosing the error.

 

Thanks,

Kalind

Re: Error when login to metadata server in SAS EG

And, BTW, you do not have a problem with the metadata server login. Your error message comes from trying to start a workspace server, which can only happen after a connection to the metadata server has been established (except when using "Local" without any connection to a remote server).
