SAS Enterprise Guide 7.1 -file navigation from a specific location

Good afternoon folks.

We have migrated all our EG projects on to sas 9.4 Grid, on REHL (santiago) - provious setup was SAS EG 5.1 Windows.

All our projects were migrated successfully, however the users are feeling a little lost due to the fact that we no longer have the windows navigation capabilities. IT have setup SAMBA shares for us, which work but are speed and network issues at the moment.

 

As a work around if needs be our users can use the "Files" navigation tree under the Library icon from the Server Tree.

 

Users have to navigate the entire linux tree from root to get to their files, and i was wondering if there is a way to change where this opens as default? in SMC9.4 maybe?

Yes, this can be done in the SMC.

Open Server Manager, then your Application Server (SASApp), then SASApp - Logical Workspace Server.

Within that, right-click SASApp - Workspace Server, and select Properties

Select the Options tab, and there Advanced Options.

You get a multi-layered. multi-tabbed subwindow; select File Navigation, and there you have an option to set your starting path explicitly.
