I have access to some libraries in SAS EG with yellow color in background. There are some other libraries
which have white color and when I try to open them or when I right-click and choose Assign, I recieve an error message:
An unexpected error has occurred.
The library could not be assigned by the SAS server.
As a beginner in SAS:
Could you tell me that how someone as a SAS administrator can change them so he can have access to them like other libraries with yellow background?
How pre-assigned libraries can be used in a SAS program?

Right-Click, choose Properties, then Engine. There you will see the physical path of the library.
You can then check (or have checked by the server administrator):

Thank you for your reply.

How did you check that the folder exists?
I ususally use some SSH client (like PuTTY) to log on to the server, then do a cd pathname to the directory in question, and try a ls (UNIX, on Windows use dir) there. This verifies that I have the necessary permissions (read and execute in UNIX)

Having pre-assigned libraries or not, is an architectural/design decision, which your administrator should be able to discuss.
Also, if a change to pre-assigned is ok for your site, your administrator should be the person who know (and does) that change.
