At our site we would like to make more use of the SAS Environment Manager and the logging/event options that are available for this.

as in:


I would like to customise the logging on the SAS Servers in the file. For most of my servers the file is available. Though it is missing for the MetadataServer.


I would have expected it under:



Who can help me with the following:

Where/When this should be created? (is this during EVManager install/config?)

How to fix/create this missing properties file? (I assume it cannot just be created and used without adjusting some further config options)


We Are on currently running

SAS 9.4 on Linux 3.0.101-107

Environment Manager 2.4


Kind regards,

Hello @MereM,


I think you got a good guess. probably the initialisation of EMI does not include the metadata server. It is possible that this plugin config is applicable only to full SAS compute machines.


I cannot help you here, sorry. I don't think this is a question of licensing, just scripting, hence perhaps SAS Technical Support can help you with this question.

If you get a solution, could you please share it with us, it can help other people with the same requirement!


thanks in advance,

Did you get answer for this ? I  also don't see that property file in my env, and I want to use logging options . Can I create a new file with same name or need to do any configurations settings.

Have you enabled the SAS Environment Manager Service Architecture? I believe this adds these files and some default alerts on ERRORS in the log, etc.
