Can not run sas enterprise guide locally on sas installed on virtual machine

Hi everyone, i am having trouble with 'SAS' enterprise guide, I want to run it locally on my sas university edition that is installed on virtual machine(exactly on virtual box), because it is too slow for me. But i could find any guides how to do that. I have read this article https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Communities-Library/Using-SAS-Enterprise-Guide-with-your-local-SA... but it is helpful for sas installed on windows directly(not in virtual machine). My sas university edition running on localhost:10080. Whether it is possible or not? if possible how to do that?

Since the University Edition is intended as a training tool I don't believe it is intended or set up to be the data server for an Enterprise Guide connection.

 

When you say "it is too slow for me" do you mean University Edition or EG connecting to a server on a network? If the network then talk to the admin for the SAS server you connect to about the "too slow" issues. If the UE is too slow I doubt that connecting EG (if at all possible) would make things any faster.

Thank you for answer. I mean EG connecting to a server is too slow. UE works fast.

There's too many variables there for us to help. It could be your network connection, the server set up, your computer speed. 

 

SAS UE is running locally so it's ultimately going to be as fast but slightly slower than SAS running directly on your machine. 

It's funny...to me SAS Studio (SAS UE) is slow because I'm used to working on local desktop SAS.

UE does not open its workspace server or metadata ports to the outside, it can only be accessed via its SAS Studio interface.

Get a faster computer.

UE doesn't support EG so I'm not sure what you're referring to here. 

 

The only real thing you can change for the settings for performance are:

 

1. Set RAM

2. Set Cores (2 max)

3. location of work/user library.
