How to fix Environment Manager - MetadataServer missing file

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.

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?)

Re: How to fix Environment Manager - MetadataServer missing file

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,
