Re: unable to create session temp directory

Hi Reeza,

 

My issue got resolved.There is no Problem with SAS university edition.The problem is with Oracle Virtual Box.

It was showing me to download update.I was ignoring for last few days.

So eventaully I tried to  Download the update and after clicking the setup ,I chose Repair Option and restarted virtaul Machine.

It is working Fine now.So everytime,We need to just repair this Virtual Machine.

Re: unable to create session temp directory

You may need to delete the VM and reinstall unfortunately. I don't believe I've seen a resolution for this issue yet. 

 

Some people have success in clearing the myfolders and re-assigning it again.

Hi Reeza,

 

I have gone through the previous discussions about the same issue and found that reinstalling does not solve the problem for some.

Still I will reinstall it but there is any gurantee that this issue never happens again?

Re: unable to create session temp directory

No. I think there's a bug in how it cleans up certain files especially when dealing with large files. 

 

Some people suggest redirecting the work directory to a external location and that seems to help. 

Regardless reinstalling shouldn't take more than 10 mins (assumes you need to download) and is painless. You can even keep a copy of the OVA file if you don't want to redownload.
