Henrootje, this looks like a problem that you are going to have to work out with your friendly Systems Programmers. You are dead in the water because your Windows SAS session cannot connect to the mainframe and establish a big iron SAS session. Until that is fixed, you have no prayer of accessing your mainframe SAS data libraries. But, then, you already know that, don't you?

Here is what I would consider doing:

1. Determine whether or not SAS/Connect is installed on your mainframe server. Without SAS/Connect on your workstation _AND_ the mainframe server, you cannot proceed as planned.

2. Make a copy of your TCPTSO.SCR script and modify it for debugging purposes. Specifically, uncomment "TRACE ON" and "ECHO ON" at the top of the script. Then, re-attempt to logon. That should give you more information to go by in your log and help you to debug this problem.

3. Double-check that the commands in the SPNLOGON and SPNDONE sections of your TCPTSO.SCR script correspond to the normal logon messages one would receive if logging into TSO "normally"--not using SAS. Also, double-check that the SAS CLIST invocation (type "ex 'prefix.clist(sas)' ";)is specified correctly for invoking SAS on your mainframe.

4. If none of the above pans out, go to the cafeteria (or a nearby Starbucks) buy a Grande triple latte and seek out your friendly Systems Programmer with the problem in one hand, the triple latte in the other.

Henrootje, best of luck in getting connected to the BIG IRON so that you can do BIG THINGS!

I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
