I am going to use SAS Web Report Studio and SAS Management Console ,but it seems that a Metadata Server need to be started at first.
Could anyone tell me how and where to start the SAS Metadata Server on my own computer?

With SAS Web Report Studio you will also need a Mid-Tier Server like JBoss.
If it's you installing all this stuff on your machine then your question indicates to me that you first need to read up a bit about how the SAS Server Architecture works. And then you need to read through the Installation and Admin Guides for your version, eg. for SAS9.2: http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/intellplatform/index.html#intell92
There are a couple of post-installation tasks to be performed - and it's quite a bit of work to get your head around if you're doing this for the first time.

If you just want to start metadata server you need to go to services and you need to find SAS meta (port 8561) and you need to the start the services in windows machine (or metadata server.sh in unix env) .You also need to start the Webserver(jboss,welogic or IBM WAS ) to run to SAS web applications.
If your metadata server is started properly you can connect to SAS MC.

Thank you Shiva,
Would you tell me more detail about how to start the metadata server? I have several questions confused me a long time.
1.before starting the metadata server,what kind of SAS software or SAS components must be pre-installed?
2.after intalled these requested pre-installed parts ,as you mentioned I need to go to start the service in windows(I use windows ),Does the service name 'SAS meta' could be found in the service list?
Thank you very much!

Assuming you are using SAS 9.2,before you start installing SAS,you need to download required version of Java and Jboss(you can get this information from support site http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/index.html.
