How to Change forgotten SAS Metadata Library (Secured Library) password

Hi,

 

I need to change SAS Metadata bound library (Secured Library) password

 

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/seclibag/66930/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n0cylegyx7e6pcn1n...

 

The thing is , i lost the old password.

 

I tried command like this , empty the old password and set new one

 

proc authlib lib=somd ;
remove securedfolder="/System/Secured Libraries"
securedlibrary="SOMD"
read=/newpass
write=/newpass
alter=newpass;
run;

 

But it doesn't work.

Any suggestion?

 

Thanks ,

Charlie

Hi,

 

when you say "it doesn't work", what do you mean? Do you get an error?

 

Thanks

Hi Anja,

 

Yes , the error indicating some password entered incorrectly

 

ERROR: All current secured library passwords must be valid in order to change any.

Hi,

 

Is this the exact and complete error message?

Do you get this error when you are submitting the code you use to change the password?

 

Lots of questions, I know, but there could be several reasons why this happens

 

Thanks

Anja
