SAS Management Console - sort list of server in Deploy SAS Data Step Program

Hi,

how to apply sorted list of servers (Batch Server field) during deploying batch run program? The list which is available is not sorted, i.e.:

000111246

023200210

034321343

343343253

This is not a problem if you have couple servers, but if number of server is let's say more then 50 then its difficult to choose the proper one. Is it some function in SAS Mamangement Console which will sort server list?

Regards,

c44rl

Every batch-server is part of some Appserver context. Every appserver context should be a well define isolated set of data for a specific user-group.

It make no sense to apply some application code as being run on all batch servers as it belongs to one application. This is the design of an appserver (bisecag).

There must be an other issue why you are asking this.  What is your issue?

Re: SAS Management Console - sort list of server in Deploy SAS Data Step Program

Well, I am not an SAS Admin expert, I am only programmer. I use SAS MC to deploy job. When I click on 'Batch Sever' field list then I have number of servers. It is a problem, because I assume that is more then 100. The list is not sorted by number, so I need to scroll down the list and find proper server name to choose.The issue is that is annoying Smiley Happy.

C44rl,  I got lost. You have a big list of batch servers you choose a batch server of that list.

Logically it would be just one script (batch server) serving all those (to be deployed) jobs to run.

I seems someone was thinking every program should have his own batchserver    

Scheduling in SAS(R) 9.4 (batch server)  SAS(R) 9.4 Intelligence Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide (batch server)

Do you have a platform admin or are you doing this as nobody else is there for this job?

Is what you are doing not his but something different?

There are some batch options like:

SAS(R) Data Integration Studio 4.5: User's Guide (batch deploy using DI)

SAS(R) 9.4 Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide, Third Edition (metadata administration more platform admin task)
