Hi ,


we are trying to configure SAS 9.3 - Metadata Server on 64 bit and getting the following error. 


Can you please help what is wrong with this?


The following problem was encountered while configuring SAS Metadata Server Configuration:  sas - The user Id, sasinst specified as the installer account , is invalid , Either the account does not exist or the password is invalid.

it looks to me a lot as a typo while providing your password.

Don't post data (any kind of) as Office documents, as they pose a security risk and are blocked by many firewalls. Instead do a copy/paste of text into a {i} window, or post a screenshot as png/jpg. But text is always preferred.

Indeed, that would help to help you. Specially if this is not a very elaborate document, just a log file, it is better shared in the communities by using the "Insert code" functionality. Or just insert an image, as suggested.
