Running SAS 9.4 Foundation under z/OS

Dear all,

 

While invoking the SAS Clist /SAS under z/OS, I am getting the following error message. This is fresh SAS installation on z/OS.

I found a SAS note on this issue, i.e. http://support.sas.com/kb/17/578.html

This SAS note says that I need to specify an appropriate REGION value, and then rerun the RENEW job, but I am not sure how to specify the region value in the SAS clist library where SAS is getting invoked in z/OS. Thanks in advance.

 

Error message:-

**********************************************************************************************

Get in touch with your z/OS operators and system programmers. They should be able to guide you.
