You may want to try removing the authkey option from your sascfg_personal.py.

That message seems to indicate you do not have the necessary permissions to read that file.
Does the file exist and have permissions set as outlined in https://go.documentation.sas.com/api/docsets/authinfo/9.4/content/authinfo.pdf
For the server name, have you specified the value in your authkey option?

Hi Greg,

Thanks for the link, i am going through it now. I have a simple question
What should be the extension or format the auth file. Now my auth file is in _authinfo.py Should the authfile have the extension ".netrc"?

Typically the authinfo file has no extension. In Windows the file is called "_authinfo" and in UNIX ".authinfo".

I was able to get your code to work by changing

cars=sas.sasdata('cars', 'sashelp')

to 

cars=sas_session.sasdata('cars', 'sashelp')
