Assigning MS Access db library on UNIX SAS

 Hello All,

 

My SAS EG is installed on Unix Server. I have created one folder on same unix machine and have placed a "Test.mdb" file. My requirement is to assign libname for this MS-ACCESS db.

 

I have used PCfiles option with port and servername but getting below error:

 

 

libname test1 pcfiles server="test.xyz.com" port=22

path="/mypath/test.mdb";
run;

 

 

error:

ERROR: A socket routine returned error: An unexpected error has occurred. Error number is 17420564.
ERROR: Error allocating CLI environment.
ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.

 

2) As both the SAS and file is on same server when I'm removing port no, I'm getting unable to connect to server error.

 

libname test1 pcfiles server="test.xyz.com" port=22

path="/mypath/test.mdb";
run;

 

 

ERROR: Unable to connect to server.
ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.

 

 

Any lead would be appreciated.

From the doc:
"The SAS PC Files Server must be installed and running on the Windows machine where the Excel or Access data resides."
Data never sleeps
