Contact your Linux admin to verify that you enter this information correctly and that these users can be authenticated. Also read the SAS doc about authentication thoroughly.

Hello @Ishwarkumar,


what kind of users and authentication are we speaking about? Since this is a Linux machine, we would need additional information such as:


- you registered internal (@saspw) or external users?

- Is your authentication Host Authetication?

- ON your Linux machine, do you have PAM?

- On your metadata server configuration, are you connecting against an AD or LDAP?
