We have had the same problem a year ago when our machine (Win NT 4.0)
was overloaded. We have had almost the same theory but unfortunately I
haven’t good solution.
Two simultaneous SAS session creates tables in the same directory
(f.eg – DATA_1 and DATA_2). Both of them checking what can be a names of
SAS temporary tables (without writing them).
1st session - t000001 (DATA_1)
2nd session - t000001 (DATA_2)
1st session starts writing to t000001 –
2nd fails but writing in LOG information with DATA_2 table name.
The SAS technician suggested to use a SAS Share ;-))))) or to use LONG
and SHORT sas filename extension (f.eg - 1st sesion *.sasb7dat,2nd
session *.sd7 ) - both solutions was ridiculous.
