Problem running batch on Unix server

When I create and submit batch on remote server in succession, it gets submitted and the log is generated error free. But when I submit the same batch again after few minutes, it is giving me the below error in log file:-

 

ERROR: File is in use /backup/adhoc/batchtest007.sas.
ERROR: Errors printed on page 1.

Also, when I checked on the server, there is a process "sasels" active(please see attachment) which needs to be killed to submit the batch successfully. Please suggest me a method to remediate this.

Re: Problem running batch on Unix server

Have you run this past your IT group responsible for the network and SAS install?  It could be any number of things, so I would suggest you discuss it with them, and if you still can't figure it out, then an SAS IT support ticket may be in order.

It may be you just don't have permission to delete that file via your SAS.

Re: Problem running batch on Unix server

When you are discussing this, you need consider ELSSRV:

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/hostunx/67929/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n0h9c98pye6fpdn11x...

Please clarify how you are executing the batch. The sasels dependency indicates a WorkSpace or a Stored Process server scenario.

Re: Problem running batch on Unix server

Hi @LinusH: First I am establishing a connection to the SAS server on the remote UNIX server then I am creating the batch i.e batch.sas , by including some files like so:-

%include "/pgmsetup/startup.sas";
%include "/backup/adhoc/AKReq34.sas";

Then I am submitting the batch by using statements like so:-

 

"nohup sas93 -noterminal /backup/adhoc/batch.sas -altlog /backup/adhoc/batch.log -print 
/backup/adhoc/batch.lst 2>/dev/null &";
