|Creating, Registering, Moving, Copying, Renaming, and Deleting SAS Metadata Repositories|
You can change the name or the registered access mode of a metadata repository. For foundation repositories, you can also change the location of users' folders. Follow these steps:
Log on to SAS Management Console as a user with the appropriate credentials (see Who Can Do What in the Metadata Manager Plug-in).
On the Plug-ins tab, expand the Metadata Manager node and the Active Server node.
In the Active Server tree, right-click the repository whose properties you want to change, and select Properties.
If you want to change the repository's name, enter the new name on the General tab and click OK. When you rename a custom repository, the corresponding folder in the Folders tab is also renamed.
When you rename a custom repository, the corresponding folder in the SAS Folders tree is automatically renamed to the new name.
If you want to change the repository's access mode, click the Registration tab and make a selection in the Access field (see About SAS Metadata Repository Access Modes). Then click OK.
As a default, users' home folders are located in the path /Users (see About the Initial Folder Structure for New Installations). If you want to store users' home folders in a different path (or if you chose not to create a /Users folder during installation but you would like to create one now):
On the Folders tab, create a new folder where you want home folders to be stored, or rename the existing folder.
In this situation, you should create a new folder instead of renaming the existing folder. Then use the Export SAS Package and Import SAS Package functions to move users' home folders to the new location so that metadata associations are preserved.
On the Plug-ins tab, open the Properties dialog box for the foundation repository. Click the Registration tab. In the Metadata Location for Users' Folders field, enter the new path for users' home folders.
