I am trying to connect SAS9.3 from my dekstop to SAS running in remote server in Unix solaris. Below is the piece of code.
%let server1=<hostname> <port no>;
options comamid=tcp remote=server1;
signon user='xxxx' password='xxxxxx' noscript;
I am trying from my desktop for different user ids just by changing credentials above. It works for few user ids and failing for others.
The user ids for which remote sign on fails are present in Unix box and able to login through putty.
Error message is
ERROR: A communication subsystem partner link setup request failure has occurred.
ERROR: Cannot start remote process.
ERROR: Remote signon to SERVER1 canceled.
Any suggestion what could be the issue? Is there any specific set up required at Unix box for users to remote signon from desktop?

All users must be set up with valid and current Solaris userids. That's the first thing to check.
If it is working for some userids then your signon process must be OK.

Check the permissions of a userid that works versus one that doesn't. Also login into a remote session via putty with a userid that doesn't work and try starting SAS from a command line. What happens?

Is there anything in the passwords that are similar.
In my old company when we added symbols (*) or made it a certain length it wouldn't work

Issue resolved. Each user has defined temporary work space path in variable TDIR but the path was not available. Once path is created it worked fine.
Thanks everyone for your assistance
