We are using lev 1 for development and lev 2 for QA.(Both the levels are on the same server/ machine). I am having a sas libraray in both the environments pointing to different locations with same libref.
For eg: In Lev1: libname x 'D:\abc";
In Lev2: libname x 'D:\QA\abc";
This is creating a problem. When both the levs are up and running then both the librefs are pointing to the path 'D:\QA\abc".
This problem is valid if we have same libref pointing to different paths in the SAME environment. But here we have two diff environments. So is there a way we can avoid this?
(Currently we have changed the name of libref in lev2 - QA to avoid problems.)
I don't understand how you have configured your two environments?
Where have you defined the search paths? How are your libnames assigned?
There should not be problem if done this right. In fact, having different search paths is one benefit of using different metadata levels.
