What is SAS Foundation and Related
Software?
SAS Foundation refers to the superset of all SAS software that can be deployed
with Base SAS, such as SAS/ACCESS and SAS/GRAPH. Therefore, the list of
products that constitute SAS Foundation can vary between SAS software
orders. In your case, SAS Foundation is the collection of SAS products that was
ordered by your company for your site.
Related software consists of SAS products that are neither part of SAS
Foundation nor the third-party software your order might require. Related
software can be graphical user interfaces, tools, or programming environments
that enable you to effectively use SAS products. SAS ODS Graphics Editor,
SAS/IML Studio, and SAS Stat Studio are all examples of related software.
Basic Deployment Type
When you install SAS Foundation, you are performing a basic deployment.
Unlike planned deployments, basic deployments do not require a deployment
plan.
2
Chapter 1 / Introduction
SAS Software Distribution Methods
SAS supports two methods for distributing SAS software orders:
n Electronic Software Delivery (ESD)
The SAS ESD process enables users to receive an order over the Internet
from the SAS support website.
n Physical media (DVD)
Physical media that are provided by SAS contains all of the installation
materials that are needed to install an order.
With either distribution method, you build a SAS Software Depot from which you
install SAS Foundation.
What Is Covered in This Document?
This document begins where you and your SAS representative have decided
what software you need and on what machine you will install the software. It
covers all of the pre-installation, installation, and configuration tasks that you
must perform for a basic deployment of SAS Foundation and related software on
a Windows machine.
There are two main users of this document:
n SAS system administrator
The SAS system administrator oversees the entire process of deploying
SAS. The administrator receives the software order email (SOE), receives
the physical installation media or downloads the order, and installs and
configures SAS.
The SAS system administrator should read this entire document.
n SAS End User
The SAS end userinstalls and configures SAS only.
The SAS end user can skip to Chapters 4 and 5 of this document.
Software Order Email (SOE)
SAS sends an email to your site representative to provide details about your
SAS software order. This email is referred to as the software order email (SOE).
The SOE contains two important pieces of information that are critical for
deploying SAS: your SAS order number and the SAS installation key. You will
need this information later in the deployment process.
Step One: Complete the Pre-Installation Checklist
Figure 1.1 Software Order Email
Overview of Deploying SAS Foundation
There are five steps required to deploy SAS Foundation:
1. Complete the Pre-Installation Checklist.
2. Set up a SAS profile.
3. Create a SAS Software Depot.
4. Install SAS.
5. Validate your SAS deployment.
Step One: Complete the Pre-Installation
Checklist
Before you continue, complete all of the tasks listed in the pre-installation
checklist:

Chapter 1 / Introduction
Table 1.1
Pre-Installation Checklist
Task
Description
Make sure that your machine
meets all system requirements.
Review the SAS system requirement appropriate for your operating
system, which are available at http://support.sas.com/resources/
sysreq/index.html.
For example, the machine from which you are downloading the SAS
installation software must have the following:
n Internet access
Your machine must access the SAS download website.
n adequate disk space
Just before creating a depot, the SAS Download Manager presents
you with an estimate for required disk space.
Check for new hot fixes.
Critical hot fixes that were released before the current maintenance
release are automatically installed when you run the SAS Deployment
Wizard. Additional hot fixes might be available for your products. To
determine whether there are additional hot fixes for your products, see
http://ftp.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/hotfix.html.
Ensure that your operating
system supports the version of
SAS that you are preparing to
install.
SAS 9.4 Foundation and related software can run on specific versions
of the Windows operating system. To find out if your machine supports
the current release, go to the Supported Operating Systems page at
http://support.sas.com/supportos/list.
Create a SAS Installer user
account on your machine.
Always use the SAS Installer user (for example, myDomain\sas) to
deploy SAS and to apply future hot fixes, updates, and product addons.
Add the SAS Installer User to
the Windows Administrators
group on your machine.
Members of the Administrators group are given access to certain
directories and files created by the SAS Deployment Wizard, which is
the program used to install and configure SAS.
Decide which languages your
SAS 9.4 products must support.
The Select Language Support page of the SAS Deployment Wizard
enables you to select all languages that your SAS 9.4 products
support. By default, all supported languages are selected. To save
download time and disk space, you should select only the languages
that you plan to use.
Decide which locale (or
regional) setting to use and
whether to configure your
machine as a Unicode server.
The Select Regional Settings page of the SAS Deployment Wizard
enables you to select the locale for your SAS software.
The locale of your operating system must match the locale that you
plan to select during installation. The locale setting controls how SAS
9.4 formats text, numbers, currencies, date-time formats, and data
(sorting) in the user interface.
The Select Regional Settings page of the SAS Deployment Wizard
also enables you to configure your machine as a Unicode server.
Unicode is useful if your deployment supports multiple languages.
However, UTF-8 encoding can cause problems when sharing SAS
data with sites that use default encodings.
Note: If you plan to configure your machine as a Unicode server, your
operating system must use UTF-8 encoding.
Locate your Software Order
Email.
Your “Software Order Email (SOE)” contains two pieces of important
information that you need later to download your SAS software: your
SAS order number and your SAS installation key.
Step One: Complete the Pre-Installation Checklist
Proceed to Chapter 2, “Setting Up Your SAS Profile,” on page 7.
