HostName is enabled through the automatic system macro variable:  &syshostname

You can print it in the log by: %put &syshostnmae;

or get it in your code by: hostname = "&syshostname";

In some cases (as on SAS UE) you may achieve LOCALHOST as hostname.


Check documentation of system macro variables, mainly start with &sys...

some of them may differ according to sas platform.
