if you can please help,

 

i am trying to start sas from command line (Linux) (not a batch program like "sas test.sas") and wants to run proc setinit on specific server - how can i do that?

 

i tried starting sas via "sas -nodms" but didn't help,

 

Thank you ------

Do you have X Windows sessions available to you? That is probably the easiest. Otherwise batch mode, or interactive line mode are the other options:

You would need to log into remotely to each SAS app server in the grid to do the above.

Why do you want to run the SAS setinit from the command line? You can post the setinit code into Display Manager SAS (easiest) or run it as a batch job.

have grid environement and trying looking at what products installed on each server so far,

PROC SETINIT won't tell you what products are installed, just those that are licensed - you can be licensed for a product but not have it installed.

 

PROC PRODUCT_STATUS will tell you what foundation products are installed:

Isn't there a way to remotesubmit across the whole grid?
I would expect one of tbe automatic macro variables to identify the individual node.....

i think below test went fine,

 

sas  -nodms

proc product_status; run;

 

to terminate,

ctrl+D or "T" to terminate - and then - "Y" to terminate current sas session,

 

 

thanks a lot SASKiwi, Peter.
