For security reasons, we are searching for a solution to restrict the destination path for proc export. We want to block the access to the local drive. Anyone have a solution?
You may need to describe your SAS environment in much more detail.
If everything goes through a server you should be able to restrict user permissions.
If you are talking about stand alone PC with SAS loaded locally you are going to have a very hard time with this.
To control where SAS writes to, consider to use LOCKDOWN:
In a client/server environment, you can (and should) use the tools of the operating system (permissions) to control where users can write to; also use file system quotas to prevent users from wasting storage.
The SAS Users Group for Administrators (SUGA) is open to all SAS administrators and architects who install, update, manage or maintain a SAS deployment.
