Hi all,


Normally when I face this error from SAS EG, I normally turn off SAS EG then turn on again.

Error: Integration technologies failed to retrieve the log. [Error] Request failed due to an exception.

From my nice understanding, it is just the log problem itself, I am wondering is there anyway to deal with this problem rather than close and open the SAS EG again (because when I turn off SAS EG and open it again, this error disappears)?


Warm regards.

Thank you for your help, have a fabulous and productive day! I am a novice today, but someday when I accumulate enough knowledge, I can help others in my capacity.

I've never seen this.

It should never happen.

Your best bet is tech support.

I get this message while running SAS EG. No subsequent action is possible until SAS restarts. Other program files work as expected.

Are you wanting to fix this problem or are you just commenting on the original post?

This solution from Bill at SAS Tech Support fixed the issue:



For this one program, add  PROC PRINTTO  code to write the log to disk to see if that avoids the issue for this particular case.


Example code:


proc printto  log=" within quotes specify the directory and filename to write the log to disk on the SAS server";



Your proc iml code goes next...
