Subject: Re: VB/DCOM example to control SAS on remote server?
We are trying to do the same thing here. Our Lan administrator is trying
to get it to work on our Alpha OpenVMS server.
I think he is also looking into packaging our SAS jobs/commands into a DCOM
package to be executed by the remote SAS machine but do not have much on
Hopefully, we will have it working very soon.
If you find anything, please forward a copy to me - much appreciated.
We are able to execute SAS (on a remote) from a non-SAS client using the NT
WINDOWS command "rshell", or "rexe", and another one (forgot it right now)
but our LAN administrator does not like its lack of security features.
Anything to avoid using IOM where possible.
We are able to execute SAS remotely using IOM and VBA but you need to know
VBA pretty well to get it to all work. At this time, we are still working
out "snags" in doing this way for all of our customers - problems with IE
and/or Netscape have cropped up.
