Subject: Linking Enterprise Guide without creating a profile.
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
We have a problem implementing an Enterprise Guide setup here. We're trying to link our Win 2K desktops with EG v.1 to a remote Win 2K server, with SAS 8.2. The link is an IOM Bridge. We've been able to establish this link, and it works for some of us.
We now need to enable more users on this setup. However, the Sys Ad on the remote server has refused to add more profiles to the server on their default locations, i.e.,
C:\Documents and Settings. However, he has no problems with the profiles getting created on an alternate location, say, like d:\profiles, or something like that. There's another catch, however. There's no way he'd change the environment variables on the system, specifically to change the creation of default profiles. And AFAIK, SAS does need the profile of a user for a remote login.
SAS requires a place to create it's sasuser dir when I login to the server, and I can change that, but this works _only_ when there's a profile (Windows) of the user on the server.
Specifically, can someone log in to a Windows server through SAS without his profile existing on the server?
Changing the .cfg files on a user basis would not help as SAS needs a single config file for logins.
Is there any other way I can get this done?
TIA and best,
