Register Metadata

I am trying to register new tables in metadata from a predefined Oracle library, not update the metadata of pre-existing tables.

When I use the Register Tables wizard in Management Console the new tables do not appear in the list of available tables.

When I use proc metalib to register the tables manually it produces the below error .

When I create an empty defintion in DI Studio and use the update metadata option, it produces the same error as when I run proc metalib manually.



33 proc metalib;

34 omr(library=lpdw);

35 run;

ERROR: An exception has been encountered.

Please contact technical support and provide them with the following traceback information:

Re: Register Metadata

"Please contact technical support..."

I suggest that you do.

How is the pre-assignment done/defined?

What if you do a proc datastes from lets say EG, or DI Studio code editor, do you get a list of available tables?

Can you query any tables in the library?

What users are involved?
