my guess is that connection to the metadata server has not been established.

could you try to insert this at the start of the code before proc metalib?:
options metaport = [port number, typically 8561]
metaserver = "[server name]";

not sure if this helps

To understand the question better, you are taking code from EG and running it on another instance of SAS in UNIX, or are you trying to run your code within EG?
