Subject:      SAS Libanmes on NT Server

Has anyone tried successfully to use libnames containing NT share names under SAS/Connect between 2 NT machines?

Our problem is this:

* Under SAS 6.11 on our NT Server, a 'share-name-based' libname works when referencing a server machine attached drive.

eg: Libname XYZ '\\SERVER-NAME\DRIVE-1\DIR_1';

* Other NT machines on the network can use the IDENTICAL statement ;

* When this statement is submitted via SAS/CONNECT to the NT machine, the following messages appear:

"INVALID LIBNAME XYZ" "Error in the LIBNAME or FILENAME statement."

What does it take for SAS 6.11 on an NT Server to be able to use the Share Name under SAS/Connect?
