Hi,

 

When a new SAS users start, We start finding My SAS Files folder in project folders. Programmers using SAS EG and batch submit to run programs on SAS server and SAS Eg installed on users machine locally. The following SAS options are in place on SAS 9.4 server.

 

-SET MYSASFILES "?FOLDERID_Documents\My SAS Files\9.4"

-SASUSER "?FOLDERID_Documents\My SAS Files\9.4"

 

I know that  "?FOLDERID_Documents\My SAS Files\9.4" maps to  "C:\users\user-ID\documents\My SAS Files\9.4" folder in SAS users profile on SAS server. 

Windows server 2012 R2

SAS9.4 M5

 

I'm uncertain about this "My SAS Files" folder in programming folders. We have to manually delete this folder every time.

 

Any suggestions?

Hi,

In which location on the server did you see those config options set? They may be being overridden by a setting elsewhere. 

What are the 'programming folders' you are referring to?

@AjmalFarzam,

 

In which location on the server did you see those config options set?

I see that -SET MYSASFILES "?FOLDERID_Documents\My SAS Files\9.4" specified in E:\Program Files\SAS\SASFoundation\9.4\nls\en\sasv9.cfg file.

What are the 'programming folders' you are referring to? 

Fileshare server (storage)

Sorry I deleted my last post as it wasn't quite accurate. 

You mentioned this is occurring for programmers using EG and in batch. Do you have MYSASFILES set in another sasv9.cfg file elsewhere? For example, check the following: 

E:\Program Files\SASconfig\Lev1\SASApp94\sasv9_usermods.cfg

E:\Program Files\SASconfig\Lev1\SASApp94\WorkspaceServer\sasv9.cfg

E:\Program Files\SASconfig\Lev1\SASApp94\WorkspaceServer\sasv9_usermods.cfg

E:\Program Files\SASconfig\Lev1\SASApp94\BatchServer\sasv9.cfg

E:\Program Files\SASconfig\Lev1\SASApp94\BatchServer\sasv9_usermods.cfg

 

Check this post for more info on the sequence in which the config files are processed: https://communities.sas.com/t5/Administration-and-Deployment/SAS-Config-Files-Sequence/td-p/375889

@AjmalFarzam,

 

I have verified all sasv9.cfg files in SASAPP, Workspace server, and batch server. MYSASFILES option specified in E:\Program Files\SAS\SASFoundation\9.4\nls\en\sasv9.cfg file as -

             -SET MYSASFILES "?FOLDERID_Documents\My SAS Files\9.4"
