What type of server to you usually connect to (unless this is a first-time set up)? To connect to a remote SAS server follow the instructions in EG help under Enterprise Guide Explorer - Managing Profiles. If you also use a local SAS server (Base SAS on your laptop) then you can add the local server option to your connection profile.

When I set up my stand alone SAS machine I had to run the Repository Manager from within SAS to the libnames working as they should have from within EG (once EG knows there is a local server).

Try searching for the "Configuration Guide for SAS 9.3 Foundation for Microsft Windows" describes how to do this this chapter 1:


Setting Up the System Repository Manager Files

Complete the following steps to set up the necessary system repository manager files. You must have write access to SASHELP in order to specify the system repository manager.

Note: This process sets the default location for the repository manager for your site. Individual users may specify their own repository manager location by following the steps below and not selecting the Write values to system registry check box.

1. Create a directory that will be dedicated exclusively to the storage of repository manager files, for example: !SASROOT\RPOSMGR.

This directory should not be used to store other SAS files.

2. At a SAS command line, type REPOSMGR and then select Setup Repository Manager.

3. In the Repository Manager Setup window, Library will default to RPOSMGR. For Path, specify the path from Step 1, above, and then select the Write values to system registry check box. Then select OK.

4. In the resulting dialog window, select Yes to generate the necessary repository manager files.

This completes the setup for the System Repository Manager. You can create additional repository managers (a user repository manager, for example) by repeating the steps above and by using a different path.
