ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.The issue occurred when trying to connect to a SAS/Share library using the following syntax:
LIBNAME MYLIBREF REMOTE HOSTNAME="dev01.domain.com" Server=__8551 slibref=MYLIBREF;The fix was simple - simply log into the application server, open Services, and restart the "SAS Share Server" service.
