The OPERATE Procedure

Specifying a Server

A server-ID specifies a one- or two-level name for the server that you want to manage. If you started the server, you should already know its name.
The server name must meet the criteria for a valid SAS name, but it can also include the following special characters: dollar sign ($), at sign (@) and pound sign (#).
The operating environment and the access method that you specify for communication between a server session and a user session might also impose server-naming criteria. For complete server-naming details by operating environment, see Communications Access Methods for SAS/CONNECT and SAS/SHARE.
