I'm assuming you are talking about SAS datasets here...is this correct?

 

If both servers use the same OS then setting up shareable folders between the two and using PROC DATASETS with COPY statements is a good solution. We use this method ourselves. Also OS folder copies will also work. What OS(s) do your servers run on?

 

If the servers run on different OSs then it is a bit more complicated as you will have to convert your SAS datasets between different file formats.

Hi!

If you are using enterprise guide or data integration studio there are transformations that can help you do this. I think you need connect server on VA/VS to make it work.
