So at my work place, we all made our transition from Local SAS to EG SAS 5.1 (32 bit).
Our computers are on on windows 7, 64 bit system.
I dont know why but I can only point to two different servers
So the following syntax works:
libname test1 "\\N100\Group$\";
libname test2 "\\N999\";
However, when I try to connect to any folders in C drive(local drive) only the subfolders under the following directory are attached to SAS EG
i.e. libname test3 "C:\VAED"; returns error
It also has the same problem attaching folders from the servers other than N100 and N999, even when i put their explicit directory path.
Can anyone help on this matter?
I'll supply more information on request.

I'm guessing that with this change, your SAS session is now on a remote server, and not on your local desktop. This is a common transition challenge when moving from PC SAS to a SAS on a central server. Your desktop resources are no longer "addressable" in local terms (ex: your "C:\" drive paths).
This paper might help. It addresses this change, plus many others that you might experience.
