sas remote submit from grid

[ Edited ]

I was posting this on "base sas programming" window but not sure if it needs to here to get some comment/ideas,


Hello - I have Linux grid environment sas 9.4. trying remote submit code from sas grid environment to test sas server where have sas metadata server/object spawner and sas connect spawner up and running fine.


I can ssh from grid sas server 9from where I am executing code) to test server.


when I run below code, receives below error.


options metaport=8561 metauser=userid metapass=XXXXXXXX;
%let rc=%sysfunc(grdsvc_enable(_all_, server=SASApp));

NOTE: Connecting to SAS Metadata Server produced: ERROR: No logical grid server exists for SAS Application Server "SASApp".
NOTE: SAS application server not found; the local machine will be used.


signon ses1;



sas statements....







I added test sas server to "sasapp - logical workspace server" under grid environment but still sees that error...


anything else needs to be done?

Does the user you are connecting to the Metadata server with have Read access to SASApp and it's definitions ?


Does anything show in the Metadata server log when you connect ?

Re: sas remote submit from grid

I changed connection code little bit and it seems working fine - however, it doesn't seems code is executing on remote server, it is executing on sas grid environment itself and not to remote test server.


Goal is executing sas job from grid sas environment to remote test server where we have sas running fine as well.


 %let 7541;

 options remote=rhost comamid=tcp
