I need to install Data Integration Studio client on a local machine and connect to the remote machine where SAS servers are running. Is this possible? Where can I find the guide to accomplish this operation?
Yes, it is possible to connect to a remote sas server from a local data integration studio client. Check with your site admin if they have the sas client install package available ( usually this is a subset of the the complete sas installation package) , and make sure there are no firewalls blocking the sas metadata port ( default metadata port is 8561).
