Can you connect to other folders on that server? EG at my company can't see server folders like that at all.

In my experience, that error message tells me it can't find the drive. That could happen for various reasons such as you typed it in incorrectly. It could be syntax. It could be that you typed the folder in incorrectly. If it's a shared drive, you have to write out the full path. For example, if you mapped it to W, you can't type W, you have to type out whatever W stands for. It looks like you already did that, just trying to cover all the bases. I don't have any experience with Unix, but it looks like those specifics have been covered above.

Or, it could be a Firewall rule that prevents the SAS server from connecting to that drive, in which case only IT can fix it, and it may take a while. They have to open up the connection to that specific shared drive. Has anyone else ever connected to that drive?

Your best bet is to talk to someone at your company who already uses the SAS server to see how they do it (or find their code). This will give you the correct syntax, and maybe even the exact code you're looking for. If you can't find any other code, which would be really weird, then try connecting to other drives to see if that works (this could help you know you have the correct syntax and it's just the drive in question). And, lastly, contact whoever is in charge of the server and just ask them how to do it.

Looks like I will have to go to the person in charge of SAS/UNIX server.
