How Metadata server reads information from omaconfig.xml file at startup ?

Hello,

 

How Metadata server reads information from omaconfig.xml file at startup ? How the file omaconfig.xml file is called ?

 

As in Linux, to start metadata server we start the MetadataServer.sh script . MetadataServer script points to SASMeta/MetadataServer/sasv9.cfg  file which again points to SASFoundation/sasv9.cfg file and it points to SASFoundation/nls/en/sasv9.cfg. Where the omaconfig.xml file is mentioned  and how it is being called ?

@sriramsahani,

 

The filename omaconfig.xml is hardcoded. That file will be opened during startup of the metadata server using proprietary code.

It's in the compiled machine code of the SAS executable, so nowhere where you can access it without violating the SAS license (which forbids re-engineering).

Exactly as @alexal and @KurtBremser advised:

our omaconfig.xml file might include an option that activates a SAS Metadata Server or repository manager feature that is needed by a particular SAS application. When this is the case, do not remove the option or change its setting unless you are instructed to do so by SAS Technical Support.
