Subject: SAS/connect, a beginner's confusion
I ran SignOn successfully to a remote NT server with much better resources
than the NT client that initiates the SignOn.
SAS support said if I want to run SAS program, i need to now pretend sitting
in front of the remote site. So I pretend.
The source EBCDIC sits at D drive of the remote NT box, which is mapped to
the NT client as a Y drive. Ok, I am pretending, so write down the Infile as
After using Rsubmit to run it, SAS said the file can not be found.
Similarly, when I change the library reference from
Libname lab1 'y:\sas\';
Libname lab1 'd:\sas'; (remember I am 'sitting' in front of the remote
SAS said Invalid library location.
So I change back to as if sitting in front of the client and change back all
the reference details. And I still use Rsubmit to run the programs. This
time, SAS does not reject anything, but runs about 10 more slowly than if
the Rsubmit is used to run it.
I have read a lot of SASDoc so far.My test shows that synchro or asynchro
does not make any difference. Also seen in my tests, the CPU usage at the
client NT workstation is always running at a higher percentage than the
remote NT server. The remote server has 2GB memoery and about 180GB HD
available, which the client only has 256MB and 32GB.
Any help is appreciated.
