Experts,


I am trying to define a libname in SAS enterprise which is running from another server. In order to do this I need the full path to my machine inclusive of server

Does anyone know if there is a command in Windows 7 to get this information?

If I'm understanding you correctly this should work in a run command as long as you have rights.

\\servername\C$\

From there you can put in whatever path you need.

if i understand you correctly, you are trying to find out your machine name? if so, from command prompt type: hostname - the name of your machine will be displayed...

from there, if you don't have a share defined, you could use the method above and reference the path from C$ - provided you have the rights... otherwise, if you have the path already shared out you could reference it using the share name e.g. \\machinename\sharename

the server name would depend on the SAS setup... it's a hard question to answer without knowing how it's being installed... if you have access to the management console, you might be able to find the answer there - depending on how much security has been put in place...
