When I look in the log after clicking in the HOLAP registration, I see the
In my case it is probably because I din't register any servers in my
repository. As fas as I kwon _hps_ is the dataset with server information.
I encountered your problem while accessing holap via the Holap metadata
class (sashelp.holapmd.md.class). The method _saveMetadata() has the same
effect. SAS told me that I shouldn't bother.
P.S. I have the same. So I wrote some SCL code to register my (dozens
of)tables, after registering the first table with the mouse.
P.P.S. At the moment SAS Netherlands is checking out why, after my code ran,
the Holap metadata is password protected. (I didn'd password protect it my
self, neither by clicking, nor in my code.

Subject: HOLAP registration in V8
In V8 you register HOLAP data sources through the MDMDDB window. This has
been so badly written by SI as to be almost impossible to use with a data
source that uses a lot of SAS datasets because you have to tell it exactly
the same pieces of information over and over again. E.g. you tell it AgentNo
is yet again a Class variable as it was in every past dataset I have ever
produced and will be in every future dataset I will ever produce - try doing
that for 150 datasets and 20 variables!
However there is a batch utility that reads and writes metadata repository
info so you can use datasteps etc to write out repeating information and
then update the repository.
In using the MDP batch utility on a PC under Windows NT4 I got the following
messages. Does any one know what the NOTES mean? Are they saying anything
