For example, reports use folder paths to locate information maps. If you move an
information map to a different folder, then you might need to edit associated reports to
point to the new information map location. Other objects that depend on folder
pathnames include information maps and prompts. For more information about
managing folder pathnames, see the "Working with SAS Folders" chapter in the SAS
Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide.
Selecting a Default SAS Application Server
Problem
You want to work with SAS Data Integration Studio without having to select a server
each time that you access data, execute SAS code, or perform other tasks that require a
SAS server.
Solution
Use the Tools ð Options window to select a default SAS Application Server.
Alternatively, you can double-click the SAS Application Server pane at the bottom of
the desktop, to the left of the user ID panel. (The status bar at the bottom of the desktop
displays the current user, SAS Application Server, and SAS Metadata Server.)
When you select a default SAS Application Server, you are actually selecting a metadata
object that can provide access to a number of servers, libraries, schemas, directories, and
other resources. An administrator typically creates this object. The administrator then
tells the SAS Data Integration Studio user which object to select as the default server.
Tasks
Select a SAS Application Server
Perform the following steps to select a default SAS Application Server:
1. From the SAS Data Integration Studio menu bar, select Tools ð Options to display
the Options window.
2. Select the SAS Server tab.
3. On the SAS Server tab, select the desired server from the Server drop-down list. The
name of the selected server appears in the Server field.
4. Click Test Connection to test the connection to the SAS Workspace Server or
servers that are specified in the metadata for the server. If the connection is
successful, go to the next step. If the connection is not successful, contact the
administrator who defined the server metadata for additional help.
5. After you have verified the connection to the default SAS Application Server, click
OK to save any changes. The server that is specified in the Server field is now the
default SAS Application Server.
