Hi all. EBI noob here, but we're still having to bridge the old way of doing things with the new world. So, we've got EBI running on a UNIX box. I would like to access a folder (containing SAS dataset) on our Windows/Novell server using EG running on the Unix compute server. Seems like it would be simple enough to build a libname statement to the other server, adding some host and log-in arguments, but I just haven't been able to pin down the syntax. Is this possible?
Here's my everyday script:
/* signon to remote */
%let sasR = upc6001sas01 4600;
signon sasR user=_prompt_;
/* or if you do not wish to be prompted for user/password */
*signon sasR user=myuser password=mypassword;
That was an example of the "old school", which requires SAS/CONNECT on both SAS client and server. The more "modern" way to connect from EG to an EBIS installation is connect to it's workspace server through the metadata server. Contact your EBIS system admin for details concerning portnumber, authentication, library assignment on the server etc.
