first time use DI studio:connection problem

After first time open DI studio, a pop up menu show:

please specify a name for your metadata profile:

Name: My server,

Please enter the information necessary to establish a connection:

machine:

port:

userid:

password"

That mean I need to connect to the metadata server first before use DI studio.

My question is the metadata server should be started on the same machine with DI studio or any remote metadata server will be fine?

Please advise .

Thanks!

DI Studio is the client. The servers can be on the same or different machines. Same story as for other clients like SAS EG.

It's all documented: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/etlug/63360/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n0kvnite8j3kikn1lcbs...

You will need a valid SAS Metadata User and Password.

And this link gives you a list of Admin tasks and where you will find them documented: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/etlug/63360/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n0a1xzsuqksz2pn1pgu4...

The server name would be better (as IP addresses can change) but the IP address will work.
