redirecting 'sasuser' default path

Hi Friends - i want to redirect 'sasuser' path in sasv9.cfg file in windows environment (We are using SAS EG on server only) and i have 2 questions in mind if someone can suggest me something.

1) i have path as IN SASV9.CFG file like,

-SASUSER "?CSIDL_PERSONAL\MY SAS FILES\9.1"

this path is directed to c:\ drive and wants to redirect it to d:\ drive. path would be "d:\sasprojects" - so should i replace it simply to,

-SASUSER "D:\sasprojects"


is there anywhere in config file (like -SET MYSASFILES "?CSIDL_PERSONAL\MY SAS FILES\9.1") i have to change path too or just at -SASUSER line in sasv9.cfg?


2) If i have to make another path for different sas user - can i write another same SAS statement in config file with different path like

-SASUSER2 "d:\sasprojects_2"

Thanks!

Re: redirecting 'sasuser' default path

The CSIDL convention should not be used anymore after Win-vista, according to Microsoft CSIDL (Windows)

It should become knownfolder as of  KNOWNFOLDERID (Windows)

Even if you run EG on a Windows Server it implies the processes are forked like user processes (batch login and more required)

Why wouldn't you run the user processes in the same way as on the desktop.

Windows is one of them most andvanced multi-user OS-systems at this moment.

Re: redirecting 'sasuser' default path

so is it safe to modify sasv9.cfg file with -sasuser line command to redirect it's path?

Re: redirecting 'sasuser' default path

agreem but check the location for a similar name with a usermod convention. That one is the prefered one to do your updates .
