good that you re-posted under a different topic than the SUGA one.
Well, just with that it is not easy to help you, we need more information. I will assume the issue is within a Virtual Machine of yours SAS'prepared VM "SAS University Edition" or a VM created by yourself, as SAS per-se is not supported in OSX (any).
In this case, you have 2 options: a) fix the permissions of the /tmp folder to 777 (which does not seems to be always possible, and Apple haven't resolve it yet), or to change the default location of the work folder on your $SASHOME/SASFoundation/9.4/nls/en/sasv9.conf file. You will see a -WORK '/tmp', if you change the folder to a folder with enough permissions, you are good to go.
