Common Terminology for Software
Updates
These terms are used throughout this document, and so are defined here so you can
understand how these terms are used in conjunction with SAS products.
maintenance release
software updates that you apply to the installed software at your site. Maintenance
releases are cumulative. For example, the third maintenance release contains all of
the new features and enhancements for the first, second, and third maintenance
releases. If you choose not to install a maintenance release, then you automatically
receive all of the content in that maintenance release when you next upgrade your
version of SAS. For example, if you decide not to install the second maintenance
release, then when you install the third maintenance release, you will get the
software updates from the second and third maintenance releases.
4 Chapter 1 / Understanding the Process for Software Updates
In general, hot fixes are included in each maintenance release. However, additional
hot fixes might be released after the maintenance release has shipped. To verify that
you have the latest hot fixes for the products at your site, see Technical Support Hot
Fixes at http://ftp.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/hotfix.html.
product-specific maintenance releases
a maintenance release for a specific product, such as the first maintenance release
for SAS Forecast Server. This type of maintenance release includes software
changes for a single SAS product.
SAS maintenance release
a maintenance release for SAS Foundation. This type of maintenance release
includes software changes for multiple SAS products, such as Base SAS,
SAS/GRAPH.
software updates
any update that can be made to your existing software. Upgrading to a new product
release or applying a maintenance release are types of software updates.
Policy Statement for Maintenance
Releases and Product Releases
SAS has the following policy for maintenance releases and product releases:
n
When you install a software update, you receive the maintenance release or product
release that was available when you placed your order. If a new maintenance
release or product release is available, you need to place a new order to get those
software updates.
n
SAS creates custom maintenance packages based on the software that is licensed
at your site. You do not select the products to update.
n
Because of the dependencies between SAS products, you cannot perform the
following tasks:
o
You cannot partially install a maintenance release or update a single product.
The SAS deployment tools determine which SAS products to update. You must
The General Process for Software Updates
5
upgrade all of the SAS software in a specific deployment whether that
deployment is on one machine or multiple machines.
o
You cannot uninstall a maintenance release.
n
Maintenance releases are cumulative. For example, the third maintenance release
contains all of the new features and enhancements from the first, second, and third
maintenance releases.
n
Maintenance releases update the SAS software that is currently deployed at your
site.
n
Before installing a maintenance release, back up your current SAS deployment.
Note: In general, SAS maintenance releases do not include any updates to JMP
products. To access software updates for these products, see JMP Software Updates at
http://www.jmp.com/support/downloads/jmp_software_updates.shtml. Beginning in SAS
9.3, the JMP Clinical, JMP Genomics, and SAS Visual Data Discovery (for the desktop)
products are installed and maintained with SAS installers. These products no longer use
a separate JMP installer.
The General Process for Software
Updates
Regardless of whether you are upgrading to a new product release, applying a SAS
(Foundation) maintenance release, or applying a product-specific maintenance release,
the general process for updating the software at your site is the same.
1 Learn about the availability of new product releases or maintenance releases from
your SAS account representative, from the SAS Web site, or from this document.
2 Determine what products you currently have at your site. Run a deployment registry
report to determine what products you currently have installed at your site. For more
information, see “How to Run the Deployment Registry Report” on page 14.
3 Assess the impact of upgrading the software at your site.
6 Chapter 1 / Understanding the Process for Software Updates
After running the deployment registry report, you should know the release numbers
for the products at your site. Compare these release numbers to the release
numbers of the products in this document. A difference in release numbers will help
you identify what products at your site have updates.
By reviewing the product-specific information in this document, you can determine
how upgrading your software could affect your site. For example, you will learn
about any new features that are available and how those features might affect your
existing SAS content. You also learn any post-configuration steps that you need to
complete before you start using the product.
4 Contact your SAS account representative to request a new product release or
maintenance release. To request a maintenance release, the SAS Installation
Representative at your site can also use the self-service application that is available
from the Maintenance Release Announcement. See the “Request a Maintenance
Release” topic at the bottom of http://support.sas.com/software/maintenance.
5 Review your software order. After you request a maintenance release, a product
upgrade, or a new SAS product, you receive a Software Order E-mail (SOE), which
lists the product bundle that you ordered and the software revision number (such as
SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w50).
6 Prepare your site for the software updates. These preparations include downloading
the order to a SAS 9.3 Software Depot, creating backups, determining how long the
upgrade will take, and notifying users about the scheduled update. You also perform
any pre-installation steps for the products at your site. You determined these preinstallation steps when you assessed the impact of the software update at your site.
7 Install and configure any software updates. When you run the SAS Deployment
Wizard, SAS automatically detects any files on your system that are older than the
files in your order. If there are software updates to be installed for products already
in your deployment, the SAS Deployment Wizard goes into Update mode. If no
software updates need to be installed, then the SAS Deployment Wizard does not
go into Update mode, and you can exit the SAS Deployment Wizard.
8 If your site is running Web application servers, reconfigure these servers.
The General Process for Software Updates
7
9 Complete any post-configuration steps for the products at your site. You determine
these post-configuration steps when you assess the impact of the software update at
your site. To determine the post-configuration steps, see the “Product Details and
Requirements” section.

Understanding Product Release
Numbers
Understanding Technical Support Numbers
Each release of SAS has a unique Technical Support level (TSLEVEL). The format of a
Technical Support level is TSxMy. For example, the Technical Support level for SAS
9.3 is TS1M0. In documentation or on SAS Web sites, you might see SAS 9.3 (TS1M0).
After you apply the first maintenance release for SAS 9.3, the Technical Support level is
TS1M1.
12 Chapter 2 / Determining the Product Release Numbers for Products at Your Site
To determine the Technical Support level for the SAS release that you are running at
your site:
1 Start SAS.
n
On Windows, start SAS by double-clicking the sas.exe file in your SAS
installation directory. Examples of a SAS installation directory include C:
\Program Files\SASHome\x86\SASFoundation\9.3 and C:\Program
Files\SASHome\SASFoundation\9.3. You can also start SAS from the Start
menu. For example, select Start  Programs  SAS  SAS 9.3 (English).
n
On UNIX, start SAS by typing ./sas —nodms at a command prompt. To exit,
type endsas;.
n
On z/OS, start SAS by typing sas o(nodms). To exit, type endsas;. You can
also invoke SAS in a batch job. Look for the Technical Support level in the
SASLOG DD output stream.
2 In Windows and UNIX environments, review the information at the top of the log
when SAS starts.
In the SAS Display Manager, you can also view this information by selecting Help 
About SAS 9.
Note: If you are working in a z/OS environment, look for the 9.3 (TS1M0) string in
the output.
Product-Specific Release Numbers for Other
SAS Products
SAS products use product-specific release numbers. To determine what products are
running at your site, generate a deployment registry report. For more information, see
“How to Run the Deployment Registry Report” on page 14.
Understanding Product Release Numbers
13
The following table shows examples of some product release numbers for products that
shipped in SAS 9.3:
Product Name
Release Number
Base SAS
9.3
SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office
5.1
SAS Data Integration Studio
4.4
SAS Management Console
9.3
SAS Web Report Studio
4.31
Understanding Maintenance Release
Numbers
After you install a maintenance release, the product release number for updated
products changes to include maintenance-specific identification, such as M1. This
maintenance number is incremented by one for each maintenance release of that
product. However, a maintenance release (such as the first maintenance release for
SAS 9.3) might not contain updates for all SAS products. Therefore, maintenance
numbers can differ across SAS products. To determine the maintenance numbers for
products at your site, generate a deployment registry report. For more information, see
“How to Run the Deployment Registry Report” on page 14.
Product Name
Release Number
Base SAS
9.3_M1
SAS Enterprise Miner
7.1_M1
SAS Forecast Server
4.1_M1
SAS/GRAPH
9.3_M1
As this table shows, all products currently have a maintenance release number of M1.
14 Chapter 2 / Determining the Product Release Numbers for Products at Your Site
Suppose Base SAS shipped a second maintenance release. Then the maintenance
release number for Base SAS would be M2. Then, the maintenance release numbers
are different because there have been two maintenance releases for Base SAS.
If the other products in the table are not updated in the second maintenance release for
SAS 9.3, their maintenance release number stays M1.
For more information about product numbers, see http://support.sas.com/software/92/
productnumbers.html.
How to Run the Deployment Registry
Report
Before upgrading your SAS products, you need the product release numbers for all SAS
products at your site. To determine these product release numbers for each machine in
your SAS deployment, generate a deployment registry report and save it for future
reference. For more information about how to generate this report, see SAS Note 35968
at http://support.sas.com/kb/35/968.html.
Note: If you did not generate a deployment registry report before you upgraded the
software at your site, you can determine your product release number for each SAS
product at your site by reviewing the Deployment Summary that is generated by the
SAS Deployment Wizard (when you upgrade your software).For more information, see
“The Deployment Summary for the Installation” on page 65.
Understanding the Contents of the
Deployment Registry Report
The deployment registry report lists all of the SAS 9.3 products that are installed in the
same SAS installation directory (SAS Home).
Note: The deployment registry report lists all of the installed products. These products
might not be deployed or configured at your site.
Understanding the Contents of the Deployment Registry Report
For example, if your deployment includes an installation of SAS Web Report Studio
4.31, then the deployment registry report could include the following entry:
Host: wx6
Product Code: citationweb
Version: 4.31
Display Name: SAS Web Report Studio
Display Version: 4.31
The Display Version field shows that SAS Web Studio 4.31 is installed at your site.

The Importance of Understanding
Current and Future Software Updates
Before installing a software update, you might want to know about future product
updates or plans to deprecate functionality. Learning this information early in your
planning process enables you to determine the following information:
n
when to place your software order. For example, suppose that you are running SAS
Enterprise Guide and SAS Enterprise Miner at your site. A new release of SAS
Enterprise Guide might be available in June, but the new release of SAS Enterprise
Miner will not be available until August. To minimize your downtime and to go
through the installation process only once, you decide to place your order in August
when you can get both new products.
18 Chapter 3 / Reviewing Current and Future Software Updates
For help with determining when to place a software order, contact your SAS account
representative.
n
how plans to deprecate functionality could affect your site. For example, the SAS
Visual Data Explorer has been deprecated in SAS 9.3. Knowing this information
during the planning stage helps you allot time in your schedule to convert the data
explorations to reports that can be opened in SAS Web Report Studio. For more
information, see “Deprecated Functionality” on page 23.
Current Product Releases
Product Releases by Release Date
Use this table to determine when your product release initially shipped. Use the
Software Order E-mail or Software Order Information to determine the revision number
for the software in your order. For more information, see “Reviewing Your Software
Order” on page 53.
Note: Only products that are mentioned in this document are included in the table. The
table is not a comprehensive list of all the products that shipped at a specific time. For a
list of the products in your order, see the install_doc/order-number/
ordersummary.html file in your SAS Software Depot. If you are installing SAS from a
DVD, the ordersummary.html file is available on SAS Software Disc 1 in the
install_doc\order-number directory.

Deprecated Functionality
23
Deprecated Functionality
In SAS 9.3, SAS deprecates the following functionality:
n
The SAS Visual Data Explorer has been deprecated in SAS 9.3.
n
The SAS Data Surveyor for PeopleSoft has been deprecated and is no longer
supported. The SAS Data Surveyor for PeopleSoft continues to be supported on
SAS 9.2 systems.
n
SAS BI Web Services for .NET has been discontinued. SAS BI Web Services for
Java supports .NET versions of generated web services that are migrated from SAS
9.2 in a way that is transparent for clients. In fact, clients need to change only
endpoint addresses. (And this step can be omitted if a proxy server is used.) For
more information, see “Migrating SAS BI Web Services for .NET to SAS BI Web
Services for Java” in Chapter 1 of SAS BI Web Services: Developer's Guide.
n
In SAS Data Quality Server, several functions and procedures have been
deprecated. For more information, see “Deprecated Procedures” on page 150 and
“Replacing the DQSRV Functions with DMSRV Functions” on page 149.
n
The SAS Analytics Platform has been deprecated. Products that used the Analytics
Platform as their middle tier (such as SAS Forecast Studio, SAS Enterprise Miner,
and SAS Model Manager) now use the SAS Web Infrastructure Platform, which
requires a web application server. For more information about web application
servers, see http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/v3/appservers.
n
The SAS Table Server is replaced by the SAS Framework Data Server when you
configure the target system by using the SAS Migration Utility. The DataFlux
Integration Server is replaced by the DataFlux Data Management Server. For more
information about the SAS Migration Utility, see “SAS Migration Utility Reference” in
Chapter 1 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide.
Note: Even though the SAS Table Server is deprecated, it continues to be
displayed in the Products to Upgrade section of the Review Required Updates page
in the SAS Deployment Wizard. You can ignore this instance.
24 Chapter 3 / Reviewing Current and Future Software Updates
n
SAS Shared Services was incorporated into the Web Infrastructure Platform in SAS
9.3.
Note: Even though SAS Shared Services is deprecated, it continues to be displayed
in the Products to Upgrade section of the Review Required Updates page in the
SAS Deployment Wizard. You can ignore this instance.
Note: If you are upgrading from SAS 9.1.3, the following functionality was deprecated
in SAS 9.2:
n
SAS Web OLAP Viewer for Java will have no new releases. It has been replaced
by functionality that is available in SAS Web Report Studio 4.3. For more
information, see “SAS Web OLAP Viewer for Java” on page 293.
n
The Replication Wizard in SAS Management Console has been deprecated. For
more information, see SAS Note 40834 at http://support.sas.com/kb/

n
If you are upgrading from SAS 9.1.3 or SAS 9.2 to SAS 9.3, carefully review these
pages to learn the new operating environments that are supported and the operating
environments that are no longer supported.
n
If you are already running SAS 9.3 and you are applying a maintenance release or
upgrading to a new product release, review these pages to determine whether any
updates or patches need to be applied to your operating environment.
26 Chapter 4 / Updating Operating Environments and Third-Party Software
Modifying the Date-and-Time Stamps for
Non-Versioned Files in UNIX
Environments
Note: The tar command is the recommended method for copying and moving a SAS
deployment in UNIX because this command preserves the date-and-time stamps on the
files. This information is relevant only if you used the cp command without the -p option
(which is required to preserve the date-and-time stamps on your files) to copy your SAS
deployment from one location to another.
The installation for a maintenance release uses the date-and-time stamps for some
non-versioned files to determine whether the files need to be updated. If you copied a
deployment of SAS 9.3 (using the cp command without the -p option), then the
maintenance release might not install properly. The date-and-time stamps on the copied
files might be different from the deployment that was installed using the SAS
Deployment Wizard. In order for the maintenance release to install correctly, the dateand-time stamps on the copied files must be July 12, 2011.
To change the date-and-time stamps on your files to July 12, 2011, enter the following
command from the SAS installation directory:
find . | xargs touch -t 201107120000.00
You must run this UNIX command under the user ID that was used to install SAS 9.3.
You can modify the attributes of these SAS files under that user ID only.
Additional Support for Third-Party
Software
When you initially configured your third-party software, these products should have met
the minimum requirements that are documented on the “Third-Party Software
Requirements for Use with SAS Software and Applications” website at http://
support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/.
Additional Support for Third-Party Software
27
However, third-party vendors sometimes release updates to address defects and
security issues. SAS might recommend that you apply a recent upgrade or path. For
example, if you are using an Oracle WebLogic Server, an IBM WebSphere Application
Server, or a JBoss Application Server, you might need to apply a patch or upgrade
before installing SAS 9.3.
Before installing SAS 9.3, applying maintenance, or upgrading to a new product
release, verify that your site is using the required versions of third-party software.

How Much Time Should I Allow for
Applying a Maintenance Release?
The outage time that is required for applying a maintenance release varies from site to
site. Installing product updates is only a small part of applying a maintenance release.
When estimating the outage time for your site, you must also include time for
configuring your Web application servers, restoring customizations, and completing any
30 Chapter 5 / Frequently Asked Questions
post-configuration steps for products at your site. To estimate how long it will take to
apply a maintenance release, identify the steps in the “Product-Specific Details and
Post-Configuration Requirements” part that you need to complete.
How Can I Optimize the Download of a
Maintenance Release?
If you created a SAS Software Depot for SAS 9.3, it is recommended that you download
the maintenance release for SAS 9.3 to this depot. When you download a maintenance
release for SAS 9.3 to an existing SAS 9.3 Software Depot, only the files that were
updated in the maintenance release will be downloaded. If you download the
maintenance release to a new SAS Software Depot, then all files in the SAS 9.3 release
must be downloaded.
Can I Add New Products While Applying
a Maintenance Release?
In addition to the updates from a maintenance release, your software order might
include products that you are adding to your current deployment. Before you install any
new products, you must apply any maintenance releases or product upgrades. After
these software updates are applied, you restart the SAS Deployment Wizard to add any
new products. For more information, see “Adding a New Product” on page 76.
How Do I Know If the Maintenance
Release Installed Successfully?
To confirm that the maintenance release installed successfully, review the Installation
section of the Deployment Summary. For more information, see “The Deployment
Summary for the Installation” on page 65.
Can I Uninstall a Maintenance Release?
31
To troubleshoot a product that failed to install, use the product’s audit files. The audit
files list each file that was added, deleted, or replaced for that product. For more
information, see “Audit Files” on page 67.
How Do I Validate a Deployment?
SAS provides several tools that you can use to validate your deployment.
n
To validate products that are part of SAS Foundation, see the SAS 9.3 Qualification
Tools User’s Guide.
n
To validate your SAS servers, see “Checking the Status of Servers” in Chapter 6 of
SAS Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide.
How Can I Determine Whether a
Maintenance Release Has Already Been
Applied?
To determine whether your site is running the latest version of your SAS products, run
the SAS Deployment Wizard. If a machine does not require any product updates, then
the SAS Deployment Wizard will not go into Update mode, and the installation on that
machine is complete.
Can I Uninstall a Maintenance Release?
Because of the dependencies between SAS products, you cannot uninstall
maintenance updates. However, when applying a maintenance release, SAS
automatically backs up any files that are modified in the SAS installation directory. It
does not back up any changes that you made to the SAS configuration directory.
32 Chapter 5 / Frequently Asked Questions
Therefore, before installing a maintenance release, it is recommended that you back up
all of the files in your SAS deployment. If you need to restore a previous deployment of
SAS, it is recommended that you use these backup copies.
For more information, see “Creating and Removing Backup Files” on page 40.

Review the List of Products at Your Site
Before you apply a software update to your site, review the list of products that will be
updated on a machine. From the SAS Deployment Wizard, generate a list of the product
updates that SAS will apply to the current machine. This list of product updates could
vary for each machine at your site, so it is important that you generate this list on every
machine that runs SAS 9.3.
Note: If no product updates are required for a machine, then you will not see a list of
product updates, and your installation of the product upgrade or maintenance release is
complete on that machine.
To view SAS products that will be updated on a machine:
1 Run the SAS Deployment Wizard from the software depot that contains your SAS
9.3 installation. You must use the same user ID that you used to install SAS 9.3.
Note: In a Windows environment, you must be an administrator to run the SAS
Deployment Wizard, but you do not have to use the same user ID that you used to
install SAS 9.3. In UNIX environments, you must use the same user ID that you
36 Chapter 6 / Assessing the Effect on Products at Your Site
used to install SAS 9.3. For both operating environments, the SDW_yyyy-mm-ddhh.mm.ss.log file lists the ID for the current user.
From the highest-level directory in your SAS Software Depot, start the SAS
Deployment Wizard by using the command for your operating environment.

product name.
Note: If no product updates are required, then the list of required updates does not
appear, and you can exit the SAS Deployment Wizard.
Review the Product Details and Requirements
37
3 Because you are not installing any software at this time, click Cancel to exit the SAS
Deployment Wizard.
After reviewing the contents of the list of required updates and assessing the effect
on products at your site, you can install these product updates by restarting the SAS
Deployment Wizard.
Note: When you exit the SAS Deployment Wizard, the list of product updates is not
saved. When you install the software, a Deployment Summary for the installation
(which contains this list of product updates) is saved to the SAS-installationdirectory/InstallMisc/InstallLogs directory.
Review the Product Details and
Requirements
After obtaining the list of products that will be updated, review the product information in
Part 5 “Product Details and Requirements.”
38 Chapter 6 / Assessing the Effect on Products at Your Site
Reviewing these product topics now will enable you to perform the following tasks:
n
prepare for any feature changes that will affect your site
n
identify any pre-installation or post-configuration steps that need to be performed for
the products that you have installed at your site
n
plan for additional time to complete any product-specific steps for each updated
product

Estimating Disk Space Requirements
When you apply a SAS maintenance release, here are the four areas that might require
additional disk space:
n
SAS Software Depot
n
SAS installation directories
n
SAS configuration directories
n
space for the deployed SAS Web applications
The specific size increase depends on how SAS is deployed at your site.
40 Chapter 7 / Using Backups and Restoring Customizations
Some of this increase in disk space is temporary because you can remove some files
after applying a maintenance release. For more information, see “Creating and
Removing Backup Files” on page 40.
Creating and Removing Backup Files
CAUTION! You cannot combine SAS 9.2 and SAS 9.3 orders in the same
software depot. When you initially install SAS 9.3, you are required to create a new
software depot.
Note: Before you update an existing SAS 9.3 installation, you must stop all SAS
servers. It is recommended that you back up all the files in your SAS installation and
configuration directories. Create backups of the installation and configuration directories
for SAS for each machine in your deployment, and use these backups if you need to
restore your previous SAS deployment. For more information, see “Best Practices for
Backing Up and Restoring Your SAS Content” in Chapter 11 of SAS Intelligence
Platform: System Administration Guide.
When you apply a maintenance release, SAS automatically backs up any file in the SAS
installation directory that will be modified during this update. These backups are saved
in the maintenance directory for each product. The general format of this directory path
is SAS-installation-directory\product\release\maintenance. Here are
two examples of these backup directories:
n
For Base SAS 9.3: SAS-installation-directory\SASFoundation
\9.3\maintenance
Examples of this path in Windows environment include C:\Program Files
\SASHome\x86\SASFoundation\9.3\maintenance and C:\Program Files
\SASHome\SASFoundation\9.3\maintenance
n
For SAS Web Report Studio 4.3: SAS-installation-directory
\SASWebReportStudio\4.3\maintenance
If disk space is limited, then after the maintenance release has been installed, you can
use the SAS Update File Cleanup Utility to remove the backups that SAS created. This
utility must be run under the user ID that was used to install SAS. For more information
Effect on Customizations
41
about how to use this utility, see “Remove Update Backup Files” in Chapter 3 of SAS
Intelligence Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide.
Effect on Customizations
Customizations to EAR Files
If you did not manually configure your SAS Web application servers, SAS rebuilds and
redeploys the enterprise archive (EAR) files for all Web applications at your site.
(Examples of Web applications include SAS Web Report Studio and the SAS
Information Delivery Portal.) Therefore, customizations that you made to the EAR files
after initial deployment might be lost.
Here are examples of customizations that you might have specified in your EAR files:
n
changes to the context root for Web applications, such as the SAS Information
Delivery Portal and the SAS BI Dashboard. After your initial installation of SAS, you
might have customized the URL that is used to access a SAS Web application at
your site. However, after applying a maintenance release, this customization is lost,
and you must specify this customization again in order for your site-specific URL to
work.
n
customizations for Web authentications.
Customizations to the Server Configuration
Files
For the SAS Metadata Server, SAS Application Servers, and SAS/SHARE Servers,
SAS provides configuration files that you can use to specify site-specific modifications to
the server’s start-up options and the autoexec.sas file. Any configuration file that you
can modify contains _usermods in its name. Any modifications to these files are not
overwritten when you apply a maintenance release or upgrade to a new product.
For more information, see “Reference: Configuration Files for SAS Servers” in Chapter
25 of SAS Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide.
42 Chapter 7 / Using Backups and Restoring Customizations
Record Any Additional Customizations at
Your Site
After your initial installation of SAS, you might make additional customization at your
site. Before you upgrade to a new product release or apply a maintenance release, note
any customizations that you made so you can restore these customizations after your
software update. For more information, see “Using Configuration Manager ” in Chapter
5 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Middle-Tier Administration Guide.

Why You Need to Undeploy the SAS
Web Applications
When you update the software at your site, SAS automatically performs these tasks:
n
rebuilds all SAS Web applications
n
redeploys all SAS Web applications
n
restarts your Web application servers
44 Chapter 8 / Undeploying SAS Web Applications and Stopping the Web Application Servers
In order to update your software, you must undeploy any SAS Web applications on the
tier where you are updating the software, and you must stop any Web application
servers that run SAS Web applications.
Note: You need to undeploy the SAS Web applications only on the tier where software
is being updated. If the SAS Deployment Wizard does not go into update mode, then no
software updates are required, and you do not need to undeploy your SAS Web
applications on that tier.
Maintenance Considerations for Web
Application Servers Deployed on
Another Machine
One deployment option is to create a middle-tier configuration on a machine that does
not contain a Web application server. After the configuration completes, you move the
middle-tier configuration to the Web application server machine and manually deploy it.
If you have deployed your SAS middle tier in this manner, you must move the Web
directories back to the original machine before applying maintenance and updates,
apply your SAS maintenance and updates, and then finally move the updated Web
directories back to the target Web application server machine.
For more information, see “Building a Web Application Server Configuration for
Deployment on Another Machine” in Chapter 4 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Installation
and Configuration Guide.
Effect on Any Modifications to Your Web
Server Files
When SAS rebuilds and redeploys the SAS Web applications on your Web server, any
modifications that you specified for your Web server (such as a reverse proxy setup)
Oracle WebLogic Server
45
might be overwritten. After updating the SAS software at your site, review the files for
your Web Server to determine if you need to restore these modifications.
Oracle WebLogic Server
Complete these steps:
1 Create a backup of each WebLogic directory.
Note: WebLogic files are saved in SAS-configuration-directory/Levn/Web.
If you have backed up your SAS configuration directory, then you have successfully
backed up your WebLogic directory. For more information, see “Creating and
Removing Backup Files” on page 40.
2 Stop and delete all SAS Web applications.
a Open the WebLogic Administration Console.
b In the Domain Structure panel, select Deployments.
c In the Change Center panel, click Lock and Edit.
d In the Summary of Deployments panel, select the check boxes for all SAS Web
applications. Then select Stop  Force Stop Now.
e In the Force Stop Application Assistance panel, click Yes.

in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide
n
“Starting or Stopping an IBM WebSphere Application Server Network
Deployment (ND) on z/OS” in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence Platform: System
Administration Guide
Note: Do not stop the WebSphere Deployment Manager (dmgr) server and the
nodeagent server. These servers must be running when you update your software.
n
To start the dmgr server, in the <WAS_INSTALL_ROOT>/profiles/<dmgrprofilename>/bin directory, run startManager.bat in Windows
environments or execute startManager.sh in UNIX environments.
By default, <dmgr-profilename> is SASDmgr01.
n
To start the nodeagent server, in the <WAS_INSTALL_ROOT>/profiles/
<node-profilename>/bin directory, run startNode.bat in Windows
environments or execute startNode.sh in UNIX environments.
The default for <node-profilename>depends on your current SAS 9.3
deployment. For an existing SAS 9.3 (TS1M0) deployment, <nodeprofilename> is SASAppSrv01.
48 Chapter 8 / Undeploying SAS Web Applications and Stopping the Web Application Servers
JBoss Application Server
Complete these steps:
1 Stop the JBoss application server. For more information, see “Starting or Stopping a
JBoss Application Server” in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence Platform: System
Administration Guide.
2 Create a backup of each JBoss-home-directory/server/SASServern
directory.
a Delete these directories and all of their contents:
n
JBoss-home-directory/server/SASServern/tmp
n
JBoss-home-directory/server/SASServern/work
b Copy the contents of the JBoss-home-directory/server/SASServern
directory to a SASServern_premaint directory.
On UNIX, enter the following commands at a UNIX prompt:
cd <JBoss-home-directory>\server
cp -pR SASServer<n> SASServer<n>_premaint
On Windows, copy the files by using Windows Explorer or by entering the
following commands at a DOS prompt:
cd <JBoss-home-directory>\server
xcopy /E /I SASServer<n> SASServer<n>_premaint
3 Delete all EAR files for all SAS Web applications from the JBoss-home-
directory/server/SASServern/deploy_sas directory.
4 If you have configured your environment to use restrictive policies, then disable
restrictive policy handling for JBoss. For more information, see “Configuring and
Deploying Restrictive Policy Files ” in Chapter 3 of SAS Intelligence Platform:
Middle-Tier Administration Guide.
JBoss Application Server
49
Note: If you have multiple servers (such as SASServer1 and SASServer2), then
you must disable the restrictive policy files on all these servers.
To manually disable the use of SAS restrictive policy files:
a On Windows, open the JBoss-home-directory\bin\SASServer1.bat file.
On UNIX, open the JBoss-home-directory/bin/SASServer1.sh file.
b In the start_as_script section, remove the following parameters from the
JAVA_OPTS line:
n
–Djava.security.manager
n
–Djava.security.policy = JBoss-home-directory\server
\SASServer1\sas.restrictive.permissions.policy
If JBoss is running as a Windows service:
a On Windows, open the JBoss-home-directory\server
\SASServer1\wrapper.conf file.
b Remove the following parameters from the wrapper.conf file:
n
wrapper.java.additional.##=––Djava.security.manager

What Is in My Order?
When determining what products will be updated at your site, it is often useful to review
the list of products in your software order. SAS provides two resources that you can use
to determine what is in your order and when your order was placed.
n
Software Order E-mail (SOE)
n
SAS Order Information (SOI)
Software Order E-Mail
The Software Order E-mail (SOE) is sent to you after you request a software update.
Here is an example of the information that you might see in the SOE if you requested
SAS 9.3:
54 Chapter 9 / Reviewing Your Software Order
In the SOE, review the following information:
n
the Deployment type field.
o
If Basic is the deployment type, then you are installing only Foundation SAS at
your site. Products that are included with Foundation SAS include Base SAS,
SAS/ACCESS software, and SAS/GRAPH. For more information about
Foundation SAS, see “Understanding Foundation SAS” on page 92.
o
If Planned (Deployment plan needed) is the deployment type, then a
deployment plan is needed when you initially install SAS or when you are adding
a product to your SAS deployment. For more information, see “About
Deployment Plans” in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Installation and
Configuration Guide. A deployment plan is not required if you are upgrading a
product that is already installed at your site. For example, a deployment plan is
SAS Order Information 55
not required if you are applying the first maintenance release to SAS Enterprise
Miner 7.1. However, the deployment plan was required when you initially
installed SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1.
n
the Product field to confirm that your order is for SAS 9.3.
To determine when your order was placed, use the revision number in the Product
field. In this example, the revision number is Rev. 930_11w50, which means that
the software initially shipped in the 50th week of 2011.
n
the list of products ordered to determine whether any new products are included in
your order. Any new products that you are licensing are indicated by an asterisk.
SAS Order Information
After you download your order to an existing SAS Software Depot, you can use the SAS
Order Information (SOI) file to determine the contents in your order and when the order
was placed. The location of the SOI is in your SAS Software Depot. On Windows, this
path is install_doc\order-number\soi.html. On UNIX and z/OS, this path is
install_doc/order-number/soi.html.
Here is an example of the information that you might see in the SAS Order Information
file.
56 Chapter 9 / Reviewing Your Software Order
In the SOI, review the following information:
n
the Deployment type field.
o
If Basic is the deployment type, then you are installing only Foundation SAS at
your site. Products that are included with Foundation SAS include Base SAS,

What Is the SAS Software Depot?
The SAS Software Depot is a file system that consists of a collection of SAS installation
files that represent one or more orders. The depot contains the SAS Deployment
Wizard executable, one or more deployment plans (if you have a planned deployment),
a SAS installation data file, order data and product data. Before you can install SAS,
you must have a software depot. During a SAS software download, the SAS Download
Manager downloads your order, verifies it, and automatically creates the SAS Software
Depot.
Note: When you install SAS 9.3, you are required to create a new software depot. You
cannot combine SAS 9.2 and SAS 9.3 orders in the same software depot.
For more information about the SAS Software Depot, see the following resources:

Comparing Your Plan File to the
Contents of Your Depot
When you initially install SAS 9.3 or when you add a product to an existing SAS 9.3
deployment, the SAS Deployment Wizard uses a plan file to install and configure your
SAS products. You can use a standard deployment file that is provided by SAS. The
benefit of downloading a standard deployment file from SAS is all the extra files that you
receive (such as a pre-installation checklist) in addition to the plan.xml file. Standard
deployment plans are available from http://support.sas.com/demosdownloads/
sysdep_t6.jsp?packageID=000803&jmpflag=N.
Note: If you need to create a custom deployment plan, contact your SAS account
representative.
To see what products will be installed and configured, review the plan.xml file before
you start the SAS Deployment Wizard. To view a diagram of your customized
deployment plan, see details_diagram_for_ff.htm (optimized for FireFox) or
details_diagram_for_ie.htm (optimized for Internet Explorer) in your SAS Software
Depot.
In the SAS Deployment Wizard, compare the contents of your plan file with the items in
your SAS Software Depot. In the Specify Deployment Plan step, you can see the
structure of the selected plan file. Items that are in bold, black font are either not in your
order or are not supported on this platform. If software is missing from your order,
contact your SAS account representative.
Comparing Your Plan File to the Contents of Your Depot
61
TIP As a best practice, copy your plan.xml file to the plan_files directory in your
SAS Software Depot so that other users at your site can use the same plan file. The
plan files in this directory are displayed in the Specify the full path to a customized
deployment plan field by default.
After you complete your installation, a copy of the plan file that you used is saved in the
SAS-configuration-directory/Levn/Utilities directory. An example of this
directory path on Windows is C:\SAS\Config\Lev1\Utilities
\plan.date_time.xml.

What Are The Instruction.html Files,
Deployment Summary, and Audit Files?
When you apply a software update, SAS automatically creates several files that you can
use to determine what products where updated, verify that the update was successful,
and troubleshoot any errors.
n
Instructions.html and UpdateInstructions.html
n
Deployment Summary for the installation
64 Chapter 11 / Understanding the Instruction.html Files, the Deployment Summary, and Audit Files
n
audit files
Instructions.html and
UpdateInstructions.html Files
After you install SAS for the first time, configure a new product, or reconfigure an
existing product, you must complete the manual steps in the Instructions.html file to
complete your deployment. The latest version of the Instructions.html file is available
from a link in the last step of the SAS Deployment Wizard and in the SASconfiguration-directory/Levn/Documents/ directory. When you open the
Instructions.html file, you see a document titled “Configuration Guidelines and Details
for your-machine-name.” This document contains the validation steps for the last
deployment that you performed. Previous versions of the Instructions.html file are
available from the SAS-configuration-directory/Levn/Backup directory. You
might need to refer to a previous Instructions.html file to re-validate your deployment.
After you install a maintenance release or upgrade to a new product release, you could
see an UpdateInstructions.html file, which contains the configuration steps that you
must manually complete. The UpdateInstructions.html file could contain a subset of
steps from the original Instructions.html file, or it could contain new steps that you must
complete because you are applying a maintenance release or upgrading to a new
product. The latest version of the UpdateInstructions.html file is available from the SASconfiguration-directory/Levn/Documents directory. Previous versions of the
UpdateInstructions.html file are available from the SAS-configurationdirectory/InstallMisc/InstallLogs directory.
Note: If you need to re-validate your deployment after a software update, use the
Instructions.html file from your initial deployment.
The Deployment Summary for the Installation
65
The Deployment Summary for the
Installation
How to Locate the Deployment Summary for
the Installation
A Deployment Summary for the installation process is saved in the SASinstallation-directory/InstallMisc/InstallLogs directory. If you exit the
SAS Deployment Wizard without installing any updates, then the Deployment Summary
is not saved to this directory.
Note: A Deployment Summary for each previous installation is saved in the home
directory of the user ID that was used to install SAS. The Deployment Summary for the
latest installation of the maintenance release is always available from SASinstallation-directory/InstallMisc/InstallLogs.
About Each Section in the Deployment
Summary
Update Summary
The Update Summary lists the products that were updated. Only products that were
previously installed on your machine are updated during a maintenance release or
when you upgrade to a new product release.
The updates are divided into two categories.
n
The Products to Install category lists any new products that you installed or any
products that you upgraded to a new release.
n
The Products to Upgrade category lists the products that were updated when you
applied a software upgrade, such as a SAS maintenance release or a productspecific maintenance release.
66 Chapter 11 / Understanding the Instruction.html Files, the Deployment Summary, and Audit Files
For each product in the Update Summary, there are two columns of release numbers:
n
The Installed column lists the product release number that was on your machine
before you applied the maintenance release or product upgrade.
n
The Updated column lists the product release number that is on your machine after
you applied the maintenance release or product upgrade.
For each product in the Deployment Summary, review the information in “Product
Details and Requirements” to determine the post-configuration steps that are necessary
for your site. If you do not complete these post-configuration steps, you might
experience unexpected behavior or errors that will affect the use of your SAS software.
Installation Section
The Installation section lists whether each product update installed successfully. In the
following example, all products installed successfully, so you can complete any postconfiguration steps for these products.
However, if a product installation failed or completed with errors (such as the SAS AddIn for Microsoft Office in the following example), review the audit files for that product.
Audit Files 67
Note: The installation of the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office might fail if Microsoft
Office is not on the machine or if a Microsoft Office product is open.
Audit Files
Audit files identify all of the changes that occurred during an installation of a SAS
maintenance release (such as the first maintenance release for SAS 9.3) or a productspecific maintenance release (such as SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1_M1). The audit files
list each file that was added, deleted, or replaced. All audit files are saved in the SASinstallation-directory/InstallMisc/InstallLogs directory.
For each SAS product that is updated in a maintenance release, there are two audit
files:
n
product-identification_preexec.log lists all of the files that will be updated
when you install the maintenance release.
n
product-identification_postexec.log lists all of the files that were updated
when you installed the maintenance release.
In the filename, product-identification contains the 12-byte code of the SAS product that
is associated with that audit file. To determine the name of the SAS product that is
associated with a 12-byte code, you can generate a deployment registry report. For
more information about how to generate this report, see SAS Note 35968 at http://
support.sas.com/kb/35/968.html.
The deployment registry report lists all of the SAS 9.3 products that are installed in the
SAS installation directory. For example, if your deployment includes SAS Web Report
Studio 4.31, then the report would include the following entry:
Host: wx6
Product Code: citationweb
Version: 4.31
Display Name: SAS Web Report Studio
Display Version: 4.31
68 Chapter 11 / Understanding the Instruction.html Files, the Deployment Summary, and Audit Files
From this entry, you can determine that a product code of citationweb represents SAS
Web Report Studio, so any audit files with “citationweb” in the filename are for SAS
Web Report Studio.

About the Installation Process
You install software updates by using the SAS Deployment Wizard. If any product
updates are required, then the SAS Deployment Wizard goes into Update mode and
installs those product updates on that machine. Updates that are installed apply only to
the software that is already installed at your site. No new software is installed during this
process. If you have a planned deployment and your SAS Home directory contains one
or more configuration directories, then after installation and deployment is complete, the
SAS Deployment Manager opens so you can configure your environment.
If a machine does not require any product upgrades, then the SAS Deployment Wizard
does not go into Update mode, and the installation of the software update is complete
for that machine. Simply click Cancel to exit the SAS Deployment Wizard.
70 Chapter 12 / Installing a Software Update
Note to Review Before You Install
Depending on your environment, one or more of the following notes might apply to your
site:
n
When installing SAS 9.3 in a multiple machine deployment, you must install SAS 9.3
on the servers in a specific order. For more information, see “Installation Order
Rules for Multiple Machine Deployments” in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence Platform:
Installation and Configuration Guide.
n
When you are performing a new deployment on a UNIX system, the SAS
Deployment Wizard prompts you to run setuid.sh as root (or sudo) before
configuration. Certain SAS products and features use functionality that requires SAS
to check user ID authentication and file access authorizations. This requirement
necessitates that certain files within your SAS installation have setuid permissions
and be owned by root.
In the second maintenance release for SAS 9.3, files that must be setuid are
updated. Therefore, setuid must be run a second time.
If your site has a custom sasauth file that is supplied by SAS, as a best practice,
store a backup of this file in a location other than SAS-installation-directory/
SASFoundation/9.3/utilites/bin or SASHome/SASFoundation/9.3/
utilites/bin/setuid.
n
If you are updating a deployment that runs on z/OS, you must update the
deployment in the same order that you installed SAS in your initial deployment. For
more information, see http://support.sas.com/documentation/installcenter/93/mvs/
index.html.
Before you can start the SAS Deployment Wizard, the cell where you are going to
perform the software upgrade must be running.
n
To specify a different version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that you want
to use with the SAS Java applications, see “Specify a Different JRE” in Chapter 3 of
SAS Intelligence Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide.
Install and Configure a Software Update
71
Install and Configure a Software Update
To install a software update for SAS 9.3:
1 If your deployment includes a Web application server, undeploy all of your SAS Web
applications. For more information, see “Undeploying SAS Web Applications and
Stopping the Web Application Servers” on page 43.
2 Terminate all active SAS sessions, daemons, spawners, and servers. It is important
to stop the SAS servers in the inverse order that they were started. For more
information, see “Overview of Server Operation” in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence
Platform: System Administration Guide.
3 Verify that all machines where you are installing the software update have SAS 9.3
software installed.
Note: When installing the software update, you must use the same operating
system accounts that you used to install SAS 9.3.
4 For each machine in your deployment, start the SAS Deployment Wizard from the
highest-level directory in your SAS Software Depot. You can start the SAS
Deployment Wizard in the following ways:
Table 12.1

How to Start the SAS Deployment Wizard
For basic deployments, type setup.rexx to run the SAS Deployment
Wizard.
For planned deployments:
n The first invocation of the SAS Deployment Wizard is to install the
metadata server as a 64-bit application.setup.rexx –z64
n The second invocation of the SAS Deployment Wizard is to install the
remainder of your SAS 9.3 order as a 31-bit application: setup.rexx
To use a temporary directory other than /tmp, specify –templocation
new-temp-dir.
Note: If you install SAS using the -nojobsubmit option, the process
for applying a software update differs from the one described in this
document. For more information, see the “Documentation for a SAS 9.3
installation in z/OS operating environment” at http://support.sas.com/
documentation/installcenter/93/mvs/index.html.
5 If any product updates are required, then the SAS Deployment Wizard goes into
Update mode and installs any product updates on that machine.
Note: If a machine does not require any product updates, then the SAS Deployment
Wizard will not go into Update mode, and the installation of the maintenance release
on that machine is complete. Click Cancel to exit the SAS Deployment Wizard.
6 After the deployment is complete, click Next in the SAS Deployment Wizard.
Install and Configure a Software Update
73
Note: If you have a basic deployment, then your software update is complete, and
you can ignore the remaining steps. If you have a planned deployment, continue
with step 7.
7 In the Select Configuration Directory/Level step of the SAS Deployment Wizard,
select the configuration directories that you want to update, and then click Start. The
SAS Deployment Manager opens to guide you through the configuration steps.
74 Chapter 12 / Installing a Software Update
Note: If you click Cancel, you will have installed but not configured the software
updates. You must configure the updated SAS products before you can run them.
To complete these configuration steps at a later time, see “Configure SAS Products”
in Chapter 3 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide.
8 If necessary, restart the SAS Metadata Server. In both Windows and UNIX
environments, the SAS Metadata Server should restart automatically.
n
In Windows environments, the following message appears in the SAS
Deployment Manager if the SAS Metadata Server is not running:
A SAS Metadata Server is not currently running on the Port.
To continue the configuration steps, restart the SAS Metadata Server manually.
For more information, see “Use SAS Management Console to Stop, Pause,
Resume, or Reset the SAS Metadata Server” in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence
Platform: System Administration Guide.
n
To restart the SAS Metadata Server manually in UNIX environments:
1 At a UNIX prompt, navigate to the directory where the SAS Metadata Server
is configured.
2 Type ./MetadataServer.sh start.
Install and Configure a Software Update
75
9 In the Specify Connection Information panel of the SAS Deployment Manager, enter
the user ID and password of an unrestricted administrative user (for example,
sasadm@saspw).
10 Use the SAS Deployment Manager to update the configuration of your environment.
The panels that appear depend on your deployment. You must complete each
panel. When prompted for passwords for database IDs, you must use the same
passwords that you used to install SAS 9.3.
Note: In the SAS Web Infrastructure Database JDBC Properties panel, the SAS
Deployment Manager prompts you for the password for the JDBC connection for the
Web Infrastructure Platform. You must specify the password for the JDBC
connection. If the SAS Framework Data Server is being used for the Web
Infrastructure Platform, then generally this password is for sasadm@saspw. If you
use an alternate database for the Web Infrastructure Platform, specify the password
for the user ID that you associated with the database during configuration. For more
information about how alternative databases are configured, see “Configuring an
Alternative Database for SAS Web Infrastructure Platform Services” at http://
support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/v93/appservers/
SharedServicesAlternativeDatabase.pdf.
When you update your configuration, SAS automatically starts your SAS servers,
configures your Web application servers, and rebuilds and redeploys your SAS Web
applications.
Note: Any time you configure your deployment, you must also configure your Web
application server, even if your configuration does not involve the SAS middle tier. If
you manually configured your Web application server in your initial deployment,
perform any Web application server changes that are specified in the
UpdateInstructions.html file, and then manually deploy your SAS Web applications
again. For more information about how to manually deploy your SAS Web
applications, see the Instructions.html file from your initial deployment. Then to
correctly apply your software update, complete the steps in the
UpdateInstructions.html file. If the SAS Deployment Wizard automatically configured
your Web application server, then choose the automatic configuration option.
76 Chapter 12 / Installing a Software Update
When the configuration is complete, the Deployment Summary opens. You will need
this information later to determine whether there are additional post-configuration
steps for any of your products.
Note: The Deployment Summary for the installation is automatically saved, so if the
Deployment Summary does not open automatically or if you need it later, you can
open it from your SAS installation directory. For more information, see “The
Deployment Summary for the Installation” on page 65.
11 Complete any necessary configuration steps for your Web application server.
12 Review the list of products in the Update Summary section of the Deployment
Summary. For each product that was updated, determine whether there are any
additional configuration steps to complete.
13 To validate the changes to your Web application servers and SAS Web applications,
review the validation sections in your Instructions.html file.
Adding a New Product
Your software order might include products that you are adding to your current
deployment. Before you install any new products, you must apply any software updates.
After you apply these updates, restart the SAS Deployment Wizard to add any new
products.
For more information, see Appendix 3, “Adding SAS Products,” in SAS Intelligence
Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide.
If you are adding a SAS solution to an existing SAS 9.3 deployment (or if you need to
renew your software license for a SAS solution), then update the SAS installation data
(SID) file in the metadata. Use the SAS Deployment Manager to update the SID file. For
more information, see Appendix 3, “Updating the SID File in Metadata for SAS
Solutions,” in SAS Intelligence Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide.
Installing a Hot Fix 77
Installing a Hot Fix
All 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. If so, now is a good time to install these hot fixes.
To determine whether there are additional hot fixes for your products, see http://
ftp.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/hotfix.html.
In the second maintenance release for SAS 9.3, the SAS Download Manager
automatically downloads the necessary SAS hot fixes required by the SAS products in
your order. However, these hot fixes are not automatically applied by the SAS
Deployment Wizard during the update of your existing SAS environment.
Note: You can force the SAS Download Manager to skip downloading hot fixes when
downloading and creating your SAS Software Depot. For more information, see “Hot
Fixes Now Part of Your Initial SAS Installation” in SAS Intelligence Platform: Installation
and Configuration Guide.

Server
By default, SAS automatically configures your WebLogic Server. However, depending
on your site, you might need to complete these additional steps.
Note: If you deployed your Web applications across multiple servers, then complete
these steps on the server where Web Infrastructure Platform is deployed. Typically, this
server is named SASServer1.
Restore Customizations for Web
Authentication
Here are the high-level steps that you must complete to restore any customizations for
Web authentication.
1 Modify Logon Manager.
2 Include SAS JAR files in the system Classpath.
3 Set the CLASSPATH for the Remote Services JVM and restart Remote Services.
4 Start the WebLogic server.
5 Log on to verify the Web authentication configuration.

IBM WebSphere Application Server
Network Deployment
Configuration Steps for Your WebSphere
Application Server
By default, SAS automatically configures your WebSphere Application Server. However,
depending on your site, you might need to complete these additional steps.
Set File Security in UNIX Environments
The login.config file contains login module definitions for connecting to SAS Remote
Services by using the SAS Metadata Server. Because this file contains connection
information, you want to restrict access to this file. To restrict access to the owner of this
file, type the following commands at the UNX prompt:
cd SAS-configuration-directory/Lev1/Web
chmod go=Common/login.config
Enable WebSphere Admin Security
To use Web authentication, you must secure your WebSphere console (if you have not
done so already). For more information, see Configuring IBM WebSphere Application
Server 7.0 for Web Authentication with SAS 9.3 Web Applications. This document is
available from http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/v93/appservers/

Restore Customizations for Web
Authentication
Here are the high-level steps that you must complete to restore any customizations for
Web authentication.
1 Modify the Logon Manager.
2 Reinstall the SAS Web Infrastructure Platform applications EAR file.
3 Copy SAS JAR files to the WebSphere installation.
4 Set the CLASSPATH for the Remote Servers JVM.
5 Restart Remote Services and the WebSphere Application Server.
6 Log on to verify the Web authentication configuration.

JBoss Application Server
Configuration Steps for Your JBoss
Application Server
SAS automatically configures your JBoss Application Server. However, depending on
your site, you might need to complete these additional steps.
JBoss Application Server
83
Set File Security in UNIX Environments
The login.config file contains login module definitions for connecting to SAS Remote
Services by using the SAS Metadata Server. Because this file contains connection
information, you want to restrict access to this file. To restrict access to the owner of this
file, type the following commands at the UNX prompt:
cd SAS-configuration-directory/Lev1/Web
chmod go=Common/login.config
Restore Restrictive Policy Settings
If you configured your environment to use restrictive policy settings, then you had to
disable these policy settings before installing your SAS software. How you restore these
settings depends on whether SAS automatically reconfigured JBoss and whether you
specified to use restricted permissions in your initial deployment. Use the following table
to determine the post-configuration steps for your site.
Table 13.1
When Post-Configuration Steps Are Required
Type of Configuration
Post-Configuration Steps
SAS automatically
reconfigures the JBoss
server and re-creates the
restrictive policy file.
If you selected to use restrictive permissions the first time you
configured your SAS 9.3 deployment, then SAS specified the
following options in the start-up script:
n
-Djava.security.manager
n -Djava.security.policy=full-path-to-restrictivepolicy-file
Therefore, you do not need to specify these options again.
When SAS automatically restarts the JBoss server, the
restricted permissions file should be created and copied to the
server.
84 Chapter 13 / Additional Configuration Steps for Your Web Application Servers
Type of Configuration
Post-Configuration Steps
You manually configured
the JBoss server, or you
manually created the
restrictive policy file.
If you manually configured JBoss, or if you created the
restrictive policy file the first time you configured your SAS 9.3
deployment, then the restrictive policy file is stored in SAS-
configuration-directory/Lev1/Web/Common/
jboss. After you update your SAS software, you must specify
the following options in the start-up script:
n
-Djava.security.manager
n -Djava.security.policy=full-path-to-restrictivepolicy-file
Restore Customizations to Web
Authentication
Here are the high-level steps that you must complete to restore any customizations for
Web authentication.
1 Update the login.config configuration file.
2 Modify the server login-config.xml file.
3 Modify Logon Manager.
4 Set the CLASSPATH for Remote Services JVM.
5 Set the WebApp.AuthDomain property.
6 Log on to verify the Web authentication configuration.

How Do I Use This Documentation?
In general, the process for installing and configuring all SAS products is the same. You
can perform this installation and configuration by using the SAS Deployment Wizard.
However, some products require that you perform steps before upgrading to a new
release or perform post-configuration steps after installing the product. The “Product
Details and Requirements” section of this document contains information about product
changes and any pre-installation and post-configuration steps that you need to perform
for a specific SAS product. Each chapter begins with an upgrade path table. In the
table, find the row for your current release and the release that you are upgrading to.
The last column in that row contains the high-level steps that you must perform to install
and configure a SAS product. It is important that you review the documentation for all
products at your site before updating the software at your site, so you can create a
complete installation and configuration checklist for your site.
92 Chapter 14 / Introduction to Product Details and Requirements
If a product is not listed in this part, then no pre-installation or post-configuration steps
are required.
Note: To determine the product release numbers for each machine in your SAS
deployment, generate a deployment registry report. For more information, see “How to
Run the Deployment Registry Report” on page 14.
Understanding Foundation SAS
When you install SAS 9.3, several products are included in Foundation SAS:
n
Base SAS
n
SAS/AF
n
SAS/ASSIST
n
SAS/ACCESS software

Adding a New Product
93
Often when there is a maintenance release for one product in Foundation SAS, another
product will also have a maintenance release. Both maintenance releases will be
applied at the same time. (For more information, see “Installing Multiple Products” on
page 93.) Before you start the SAS Deployment Wizard, check the “Product Details
and Requirements” section of this document to determine whether any product preinstallation or post-configuration steps are required.
Installing Multiple Products
Often, you are updating several software products at the same time. If this is true for
your site, you do not need to install each SAS product separately. The SAS Deployment
Wizard identifies any files in your SAS Software Depot that are older than the files in
your software order, so these software updates are made at the same time. For
example, your software order might contain SAS Enterprise Guide 4.305 and SAS
Forecast Server 4.1. When you run the SAS Deployment Wizard, both products are
installed by default.
Adding a New Product
Your software order might include products that you are adding to your current
deployment. Before you install any new products, you must apply any software updates.
After you apply these updates, restart the SAS Deployment Wizard to add any new
products.
For more information, see Appendix 3, “Adding SAS Products,” in SAS Intelligence
Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide.
If you are adding a SAS solution to an existing SAS 9.3 deployment (or if you need to
renew your software license for a SAS solution), then update the SAS installation data
(SID) file in the metadata. Use the SAS Deployment Manager to update the SID file. For
more information, see Appendix 3, “Updating the SID File in Metadata for SAS
Solutions,” in SAS Intelligence Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide.

Changes to Default Behavior of Output in the
SAS Windowing Environment
New Output Defaults in the SAS Windowing Environment
In the SAS windowing environment for SAS 9.3, several new defaults are being
implemented in the UNIX and Windows operating environments.
Area of Change
Previous Default
New Default in SAS 9.3
Output Destination
LISTING
HTML
Default style for HTML
destination
Styles.Default
Styles.HTMLBlue
ODS Graphics
OFF
ON
Where graphs are saved
Current SAS directory
SAS Work Library
The previous defaults are still used in the following cases:
n
when you run SAS in batch mode
n
when you use the SAS windowing environment in operating environments other than
UNIX or Windows
Because of the changes in the default values, you will see the following changes:
n
Results are displayed in the HTMLBlue style, which is a modern style well suited for
displaying graphs and tables together. Prior to SAS 9.3, tables were displayed in
monospace, and graphs were displayed using the LISTING style.
n
Analytical procedures that support ODS Graphics automatically create graphs. Prior
to SAS 9.3, you had to explicitly enable ODS Graphics.
98 Chapter 15 / Base SAS
n
Tables and graphs are displayed together in the HTML results viewer window. Prior
to SAS 9.3, tables and graphs were displayed separately in the Output and Graph
windows.
n
Graphs are no longer saved in the current SAS directory by default. Instead, they
are saved in the directory that corresponds to your SAS Work library. Hence, by
default, graphs are automatically deleted at the end of your SAS session. You can
specify a different directory in your SAS preferences.
To change the defaults:
1 In the SAS Display Manager, select Tools  Options  Preferences. The
Preferences dialog box appears.
2 Click the Results tab.
3 From the Style drop-down list, select a new style.
4 Select LISTING or HTML as the default destination.
5 Disable or enable ODS Graphics by selecting the check box.
6 Change the directory where graphs are saved.
ODS Graphics Designer
The ODS Graphics Designer is now part of Base SAS software. SAS/GRAPH is not
required in order to use the designer. The documentation has also moved to the Base
SAS node in SAS Help and Documentation.
The first production release of ODS Graphics Designer was in the third maintenance
release for SAS 9.2. If you are migrating from the third maintenance release for SAS
9.2, here are other changes that you need to consider:
n
If you customized preferences, styles, or Graph Gallery files in the previous
production release, you must migrate your custom files to the new location for the
ODS Graphics Designer. If you do not perform this one-time task, the ODS Graphics
Designer in SAS 9.3 will not be able to use your customized preferences, styles, or
Graph Gallery files. For instructions, see “Manual Tasks for Upgrading to SAS 9.3
SAS 9.3
99
ODS Graphics Designer” in Chapter 1 of SAS ODS Graphics Designer: User's
Guide.
n
The ODS Graphics Designer retains the SAS 9.2 default style for output. However, if
you copy and paste the SAS code from the designer code window and run this code
in a SAS session, the output will probably look different from the output in the
Designer. Graphs that are output to the default ODS destination in SAS use a
different style.
ODS Graphics Editor
The ODS Graphics Designer is now part of Base SAS software. SAS/GRAPH is not
required in order to use the editor. The documentation has also moved to the Base SAS
node in SAS Help and Documentation. The stand-alone ODS Graphics Editor is no
longer required to open ODS Graphics Editor (SGE) files from SAS. However, the
stand-alone editor is still available as a download.
The editor does not support the HTMLBlue style, but instead supports a similar style,
HTMLBlueCML. These styles differ only when there are groups of observations (for
example, separate functions for a GENDER variable). To produce the same output as
HTMLBlue in the editor for grouped data, specify the HTMLBlueCML style, and then
change the line style and markers to match those used by the HTMLBlue style.
ODS Graphics Procedures
The ODS Graphics procedures, formally called SAS/GRAPH Statistical Graphics
procedures, are now part of Base SAS software. SAS/GRAPH is not required in order to
use the procedures. The documentation has also moved to the Base SAS node in SAS
Help and Documentation.
Note: Graph Template Language has also moved to Base SAS.
If you are migrating from the third maintenance release for SAS 9.2, then you also need
to consider the following:
n
The SGDESIGN procedure is now available on z/OS systems with the following
restrictions:
o
The SGDESIGN procedure does not render SGD files that were generated with
the previous release of the ODS Graphics Designer. You must open the SGD file
100 Chapter 15 / Base SAS
in the 9.3 release of the ODS Graphics Designer (in a Windows or UNIX
operating environment). Then save the file in the 9.3 format.
o
n
SGD files must be transferred to the HFS file system of UNIX System Services in
order to be rendered by the SGDESIGN procedure.
The SGDESIGN procedure does not support SGD files that were created before the
third maintenance release for SAS 9.2.
Additional Support
SAS 9.3 adds metadata server support for 64-bit z/OS operating environments.
Changes in Software Behavior from SAS 9.2
to 9.3
SAS Procedures
FORMAT procedure
A user-defined format or informat that defines a missing value supersedes a value
that is specified by the MISSING system option.
FREQ procedure
Frequency plots and cumulative frequency plots are no longer produced by default
when ODS Graphics is enabled. You can request these plots with the
PLOTS=FREQPLOT and PLOTS=CUMFREQPLOT options in the TABLES
statement.
PRINT procedure
Here are some important changes to SAS 9.3:
n
Each BY group is a separate table, and the observation count is reset to zero at
the beginning of each BY group.
n
For the LISTING destination, if HEADING=V, the variable name is used in place

Managing Multiple Installations of the
SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office
You can have multiple releases of the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office installed on your
computer. The release of the SAS add-in determines what SAS content you can
access.
n
You can use the SAS Add-In 5.1 or 4.305 for Microsoft Office to access SAS 9.3
content.
n
You can use the SAS Add-In 5.1, 4.3, or 4.2 for Microsoft Office to access SAS 9.2
content.
112 Chapter 17 / SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office
n
You can use the SAS Add-In 2.1 for Microsoft Office to access SAS 9.1.3 content.
However, you can use only one release of the SAS add-in at a time. Using the SAS
Add-In for Microsoft Office Utility, you can select which release of the SAS add-in to
enable for selected Microsoft Office applications. (Always use the SAS Add-In for
Microsoft Office Utility that is included with the latest release of the SAS add-in.)
Note: You must have administrator privileges to use the SAS Add-In for Microsoft
Office Utility.
For more information, see the Help for the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office.
SAS Add-In 5.1 for Microsoft Office
Here are some of the new features in the SAS Add-In 5.1 for Microsoft Office:
n
The SAS Add-In 5.1 for Microsoft Office is now available as either a 32-bit or a 64-bit
application. If you are using a 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating system, then you
must use the 32-bit version of the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office. If you are using a
64-bit Windows operating system, then you can run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit
version of the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office. Your version of the SAS Add-In for
Microsoft Office must match your version of Microsoft Office. For example, if you are
running the 32-bit version of Microsoft Office, you must use the 32-bit version of the
SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office.
n
These new features and enhancements are available when you use the SAS Add-In
for Microsoft Office in Microsoft Outlook:
o
role-based settings, so an administrator can manage the availability of features in
Microsoft Outlook
o
integration with instant messaging tools
o
the ability to add and view comments for a specific report
Note: This functionality requires SAS Web Report Studio 4.31 M1 to be running
at your site.
SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office 113
n
A new Quick Start interface enables you to quickly create automatic charts or
generate basic statistics based on your input data source.
n
In Microsoft Excel, you can specify whether to display the results from the Bar Chart,
Bubble Plot, Line Plot, Pie Chart, or Scatter Plot task as a Microsoft Excel chart.
For more information about the new features and enhancements, see the “What’s New
in the SAS Add-In 5.1 for Microsoft Office” topic at http://support.sas.com/
documentation/onlinedoc/addin/.
SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office
New Features in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for
Microsoft Office
Here are some of the new features in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office:
n
integration with Microsoft Outlook
n
a more robust automation interface
n
a new OLAP Viewer for working with OLAP cubes in Microsoft Excel
n
the ability to replicate SAS content
n
the ability to edit data sets that are saved on a SAS server. You can open these data
sets in Microsoft Excel. While you have a data set in Edit mode, the data set is
locked and cannot be opened by other users at your site. When you commit your
changes to the SAS server, your changes are applied to the existing data set, so
your changes can be accessed by others at your site.
n
several new and enhanced tasks that you can use to analyze your data.
For more information about the new features and enhancements, see the “What’s New
in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office” topic at http://support.sas.com/
documentation/onlinedoc/addin/.
114 Chapter 17 / SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office
About Running on SAS 9.3
The SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office and the SAS Add-In 4.305 for Microsoft Office
run on SAS 9.2. If you install the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office 4.3 or 4.305 from a
SAS 9.2 depot, then to run these releases on a SAS 9.3 server you must apply hot fix
10 or later. However, if you install the SAS Add-In 4.305 for Microsoft Office from a SAS
9.3 depot, then hot fix 10 is included. The functionality is identical in both releases.
n
If you install SAS 9.3 on the client tier, any existing installation of the SAS Add-In 4.3
for Microsoft Office is moved to the SAS 9.3 home directory. By default, this
directory is C:\Program Files\SASHome.
n
You are not required to install SAS 9.3 Foundation on your client tier. Any existing
installation of the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office can connect to a SAS 9.3
Foundation environment.
n
The 4.305 release that ships with SAS 9.3 includes any hot fixes that have been
released since the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office first shipped in August 2010 and
the initial release of SAS 9.3.
If you do not install SAS 9.3 on your client machine (and therefore you are still
running the 4.3 release that was delivered with SAS 9.2), you must download and
apply hot fix C46010 (or later) to your 4.3 installation. For more information, see
http://ftp.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/hotfix.html.
Upgrading from the SAS Add-In 2.1 for
Microsoft Office or an Earlier Release
The following considerations apply to the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office customers
who are upgrading from the SAS Add-In 2.1 for Microsoft Office.
n
Because the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office is used by a variety of people and
group within an organization, your administrator might choose to restrict the menu
items and functionality that users can access. By default, the SAS add-in ships with
several default roles. These roles manage the availability of application features,
called capabilities.
SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office 115
By using SAS Management Console, your administrator for the SAS Add-In for
Microsoft Office can modify these roles and specify the capabilities that are available
to users at your site.
n
If you have a Microsoft Office document that contains SAS content that was
generated using the 2.1 release of the SAS add-in, then you can open this document
by using the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office.
If you need to migrate multiple files or you need to remap references to metadata
objects (such as servers, libraries, information maps, and stored processes), then
you can use the Migration Wizard. To run this wizard, double-click
MigrationWizard.exe in the directory where the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office was
installed. By default, this directory is C:\Program Files\SAS\AddInForMicrosoftOffice\4.3.
n
In the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office, you can open reports that were generated
by SAS Web Report Studio. You must have SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 or later
installed to open prompted reports in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office. For
more information, see http://support.sas.com/kb/40/386.html.
n
When you refresh an item in the document, the SAS content from the 2.1 release is
automatically converted to the 4.3 format. After the content is refreshed using the
SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office, you cannot refresh the content by using the 2.1
release of the SAS add-in.
n
Content that was generated in the 2.1 release must be refreshed before you can use
the new restore content functionality in the 4.3 release.
n
In general, it is recommended that you refresh content from a previous release when
you migrate it to the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office. When you initially refresh
content from a previous release of the SAS add-in in the SAS Add-In 4.305 for
Microsoft Office, you might notice that the style for the output has changed. The
location of the styles differs between releases of the SAS add-in, so when you
initially refresh content, the SAS add-in cannot find the style that you applied to the
output. When you refresh the content again in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft
Office, the SAS add-in uses the style that you previously selected.
116 Chapter 17 / SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office
To work around this problem:
1 Before refreshing content that you have migrated from a previous release of the
SAS add-in, select the content in Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, or Microsoft
PowerPoint and click Properties.
2 In the Properties dialog box, select the style that you want to use, and then
refresh the content in 4.3.
Upgrading from the SAS Add-In 4.2 for
Microsoft Office
Before upgrading to the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office, review the following
differences between the 4.2 release and the 4.3 release:
n
Because of the similar file formats in the 4.3 release and the 4.2 release, you can
open a file that was created in the 4.2 release in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft
Office, and then open the file again in the SAS Add-In 4.2 for Microsoft Office.
However, if you open the 4.2 document in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office
and add new content, it is not recommended that you reopen this document in the
SAS Add-In 4.2 for Microsoft Office.
If you need to migrate multiple files or you need to remap references to metadata
objects (such as servers, libraries, information maps, and stored processes), then
you can use the Migration Wizard. To run this wizard, double-click
MigrationWizard.exe in the directory where the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office was
installed.
n
In the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office, you can open reports that were generated
by SAS Web Report Studio. You must be running SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 to
open prompted reports in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office. For more
information, see http://support.sas.com/kb/40/386.html.
n
If you open content from the 4.2 release and the Show Preview Changes dialog
box check box is selected on the Results tab in the SAS Options dialog box, then
you can select what content to include in the results and what content to hide.
However, because this is migrated content, the SAS add-in might not be able to find
SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office 117
the original results to know which content to hide. If the SAS add-in cannot find the
original results, then all of the results are displayed.
n
In general, it is recommended that you refresh content from a previous release when
you migrate it to the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft Office. When you initially refresh
content from a previous release of the SAS add-in in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for
Microsoft Office, you might notice that the style for the output has changed. The
location of the styles differs between releases of the SAS add-in, so when you
initially refresh content, the SAS add-in cannot find the style that you applied to the
output. When you refresh the content again in the SAS Add-In 4.3 for Microsoft
Office, the SAS add-in uses the style that you previously selected.
To work around this problem:
1 Before refreshing content that you have migrated from a previous release of the
SAS add-in, select the content in Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, or Microsoft
PowerPoint and click Properties.
2 In the Properties dialog box, select the style that you want to use, and then
refresh the content in 4.3.

SAS BI Dashboard 4.31
Overview of SAS BI Dashboard 4.3 and 4.31
Several new features and enhancements were added in SAS BI Dashboard 4.3. Many
of these features did not change for SAS BI Dashboard 4.31, which runs on SAS 9.3.
Here are some of the new features that were added in SAS BI Dashboard 4.3:
n
configuration information is now saved in the metadata, which simplifies the ability to
deploy the SAS BI Dashboard in a clustered middle-tier environment.
n
more integration with other SAS products, such as the SAS Add-In for Microsoft
Office.
n
a new dashboard designer that enables you to create a dashboard by using a dragand-drop operation.
n
optimization of screen space so you can view the entire dashboard at once. You
also have the ability to zoom in on each indicator.
n
the ability to filter all dashboard indicators at once.
n
bookmarks to quickly access your favorite dashboards and indicators.
n
the ability to create and view comments on dashboards and indicators.
For more information about the new features and enhancements, see the “What’s New
in SAS BI Dashboard 4.3” topic at http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/
bidashboard.
SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 123
Upgrading from SAS BI Dashboard 4.2 or a
Previous Release
Changes in the Appearance of the Dashboard
Here are the changes that you might see when viewing a dashboard in SAS BI
Dashboard 4.31:
n
In bar charts, solid colored bars are used. In SAS BI Dashboard 4.2, the bars were
gray for bar charts with reference lines. Using solid colors enables you to more
easily identify the individual bars.
n
The values of the column that is assigned to the Column group by role appear at
the top of the graph. In 4.2, these values appeared at the bottom of the graph and
were labeled with the name of the column that was assigned to the Column group
by role.
n
Some labels on the X axis might be repeated.
n
The bars on the right side of the graph might be wider than the bars on the left side
of the graph.
n
HTML is not supported in SAS BI Dashboard 4.3. For example, if an indicator
includes HTML output from a SAS Stored Process, then these indicators are blank
or display an error message in SAS BI Dashboard 4.3.
n
If you used HTML to change the color of a label in SAS BI Dashboard 4.2, then this
HTML code is displayed as part of the label in SAS BI Dashboard 4.3. Use the new
static label functionality that is available in SAS BI Dashboard 4.3 to customize your
labels.
n
SAS BI Dashboard 4.3 automatically aggregates the data for you, so you will not see
bar charts stacked on top of each other or pie charts with numerous slices. Tooltips
are not available for any summarized indicator. To display tooltips on a summarized
indicator, optimize the query so that the query (rather than the indicator) aggregates
the data.
n
If an indicator from a previous release of SAS BI Dashboard contains images, then
the images might not be displayed when these indicators are migrated. To view the
124 Chapter 18 / SAS BI Dashboard
images in these indicators, open the dashboard that contains the affected indicators
in the dashboard designer. Click the indicator in the workspace. In the Object
section of the dashboard Properties pane, select Use proxy. Then save the
dashboard. You must make this change in each dashboard that uses an affected
indicator.
As a result of these changes, your output in SAS BI Dashboard 4.3 could be different
from your output in SAS BI Dashboard 4.2. In SAS BI Dashboard 4.3, you can edit the
objects in the dashboard (such as change the size of an indicator or modify a label) to
meet your needs.
Review SAS Notes for SAS BI Dashboard 4.3
Before you upgrade to SAS BI Dashboard 4.3, review SAS Note 40474: SAS BI
Dashboard is completely new software at http://support.sas.com/kb/40/474.html. From
this SAS Note, you can view other SAS Notes for SAS BI Dashboard 4.3.
Location of Dashboards and Indicators
After you upgrade to SAS BI Dashboard 4.3 or 4.31, dashboards and any objects in the
dashboard (for example, indicators, models, and ranges) are metadata objects and are
saved in SAS Folders. Any dashboards that you created prior to SAS BI Dashboard 4.3
are saved as metadata objects. The default location for these metadata objects is the
SAS Folders\Products\BI Dashboard 4.3 directory. This directory contains the
DashboardConfigs, IndicatorDefinitions, ModelConfigs, and
RangeDefinitions subdirectories. For more information, see “Folder Structure after
an Upgrade” in Chapter 14 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Web Application Administration
Guide.
Documentation Enhancements
Instead of the traditional Help delivery system, SAS BI Dashboard 4.3 now includes
more embedded user assistance, so you can get help when you need it. Additional
documentation is available from the SAS BI Dashboard: User’s Guide at http://
support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/bidashboard.
SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 125
Upgrading from SAS BI Dashboard 4.3
Changes in SAS BI Dashboard 4.31
The following administration features are available in the 4.31 release of SAS BI
Dashboard:
n
Using the Export SAS Package and Import SAS Package wizards that are provided
by the SAS Intelligence Platform, you can promote individual metadata objects or
groups of objects in SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 from one server to another or within the
same metadata server.
n
The frequency with which the data cache is inspected for caching updates can be
configured and customized for your environment by supplying a custom value for the
configuration property in SAS Management Console.
n
Two new configuration properties are available for data caching. The values for
these configuration properties can be customized in SAS Management Console.
These values enable you to determine the frequency with which configuration
objects or dashboard objects are updated in the cache.
n
Message logging is accomplished with logging contexts that are added to the
SASBIDashboard-log4j file.
For more information, see “Administering SAS BI Dashboard” in Chapter 14 of SAS
Intelligence Platform: Web Application Administration Guide.
Features Ported from the 4.3 Release
The following enhancements and changes that were introduced in the 4.3 release have
been ported to the 4.31 release:
n
Storage folders for SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 now exist in both the SAS Metadata
Repository and the SAS Content Server.
n
Content folders for SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 can be located anywhere below the SAS
Folders directory on the Folders tab of SAS Management Console. In SAS BI
Dashboard 4.2, you were required to use predefined storage folders.
126 Chapter 18 / SAS BI Dashboard
n
Configuration files for SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 are stored on the SAS Content
Server. Previously, all files were stored in a file system.
n
You can use the SAS Content Server Administration Console to manage SAS BI
Dashboard 4.31 files and WebDAV folders in the SAS Content Server.
n
You can enable users to log on, view, and interact with a dashboard by creating
metadata identities for the users.
n
You can register a stored process and make it available to SAS BI Dashboard 4.31
users.
n
Three types of caching are available: data caching, content caching, and client
caching.
n
Data caching was available in SAS BI Dashboard 4.2. Beginning with SAS BI
Dashboard 4.31, files for data caching are stored in the SAS Content Server.
n
Content caching, which is a new type of caching, is enabled by default in SAS BI
Dashboard 4.31.
n
Client browsers that display dashboards with SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 use Adobe
Flash Player (Version 10.0 or later) in the Rich Internet Application (RIA)
architecture. Client caching is enabled by default.
n
Image files are no longer cached.
n
SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 supports the SAS Comment Manager. All users that can log
on to the application can view and add comments. To edit and delete comments,
users or administrators must belong to the Comments:Administrator role.
n
DSX files are stored in the SAS Content Server.
n
DSX files are modified by exporting the DSX file from SAS Management Console,
making necessary changes to the files, and importing the files.
n
The SAS BI Dashboard Portlet is installed along with the other SAS BI Portlets. This
portlet enables users to display a dashboard that is created with the SAS BI
Dashboard application. The configuration of this portlet is identical to the
configuration of the SAS BI Portlets for the WebSphere Portal.
n
You can specify a session time-out interval for inactive user sessions.
Updating Favorites in Your Web Browser
n
127
You can alert users by displaying a warning message before they are logged out of
their inactive sessions.
SAS BI Dashboard 4.31_M1
In December 2011 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w50), SAS shipped the first maintenance
release for SAS BI Dashboard. This maintenance release includes non-visible changes
to support dashboards in the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office. For a list of the issues
addressed in this maintenance release, see http://support.sas.com/techsup/reports/
maintSAS93/SAS93_TS1M1_issues_addressed.html.
No additional configuration steps are required to upgrade to SAS BI Dashboard
4.31_M1.
SAS BI Dashboard 4.31_M2
In August 2012 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w35), SAS shipped the second maintenance
release for SAS BI Dashboard.
Updating Favorites in Your Web
Browser
After the deployment of any new release, you must change the release number in the
resolved URL that you use to open the product. For example, if you upgraded from 4.2
to 4.31, then the updated URL is http://
server:port/SASLogon/index.jsp?_sasapp=BI+Dashboard+4.3&.
If you saved the URL for the 4.2 release as a Favorites link in a Web browser, then this
link is broken when you upgrade to the 4.31 release. You must re-create this favorite for
the 4.3 release. You can also access SAS BI Dashboard 4.31 by using this unresolved
link: http://server:port/SASBIDashboard.

Changes to Note Before You Upgrade to

Objects That Are Not Migrated
External file metadata that is older than SAS 9.1.3, and any jobs that include such
metadata, will not be migrated. The external files must be re-registered in the 9.3
environment. Any jobs that include external file metadata that is older than SAS 9.1.3
must be re-created in the 9.3 environment.
Updates to Jobs and Transformations during
Migration
After migration, you will see the following changes to jobs and transformations:
n
All migrated transformations, including pre-3.2 version-generated transformations,
are converted to use the new prompting framework. For most users, the main impact
of this change is on the Options tab for transformations. It is now easier to select
options from this tab. After migration, jobs with updated transformations should
produce the same output as before.
Changes to Note Before You Upgrade to SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3
137
n
Any pre-3.4 versions of the Table Loader transformation and the SQL Join
transformation are replaced with the latest versions of these transformations. After
migration, jobs with converted transformations should provide the same output as
before.
n
Any job whose process flow included a separate Report transformation, such as
Correlations Report and Frequency Report, no longer has that transformation in the
process flow. The need for separate Report transformations has been eliminated.
After migration, jobs that used to require the Report transformations should produce
the same output as before.
n
All jobs that were deployed for scheduling or were deployed as stored processes
should be redeployed in the SAS 9.3 environment. From the SAS Data Integration
Studio desktop, select Tools  Redeploy Jobs for Scheduling or Tools 
Redeploy Jobs to Stored Processes.
n
Any job that was deployed as a Web service in SAS Data Integration Studio 3.4
appears in the Stored Process folder of the Inventory tree, not the Web service
(generated) folder. This special type of stored process can be used as before.
n
The DataFlux IS Job transformation is now called the DataFlux Batch Job
Transformation. The DataFlux IS Service transformation is now called the DataFlux
Data Service transformation. For other changes related to these transformations,
see Chapter 27, “Working with Data Quality Transformations,” in SAS Data
Integration Studio: User's Guide.
Migrate Content Stored outside the SAS
Configuration Directory
Some metadata objects specify paths to physical files. If these files are stored outside of
the directories that are part of the standard migration process, then you must manually
migrate the files. If a file on the target computer has a different physical path than the
file had on the source computer, then any migrated metadata that points to that file has
to be updated to point to the new location.
For example, the metadata for a transformation within a job can point to a file that
contains source code. If the file is stored outside of the SAS configuration directory, the
138 Chapter 20 / SAS Data Integration Studio
file will not be moved during the standard migration process. If you execute the job after
migration, an error will appear in the SAS log, saying that the transformation could not
access the source code file. To fix the problem, use the operating system tools to copy
the source code file to the target computer, preserving the directory structure, if
possible. Then run the job again. If the transformation fails, review the physical path to
the file and either change the path on the file system or update the metadata that points
to the file.
Similarly, if the metadata for an external file points to a file that is stored outside of the
SAS configuration directory, the file will not be moved during the standard migration
process. If you right-click the metadata for the external file and select Open, a file
does not exist error displays. To fix the problem, manually migrate the file to the
target computer and complete the steps described earlier for transformations.
The metadata for a deployed job, such as a job that has been deployed for scheduling,
points to a file that contains the code for the job. If you migrate the metadata for a
deployed job, and the metadata is pointing to a file that does not exist in the target
environment, then the deployed job will fail. To fix the problem, manually migrate the file
to the target computer and complete the steps described earlier for transformations.
However, if the path to the source code files in the target environment cannot be the
same as the path was in the old environment, you must update the directory definition in
the target environment, and then reschedule all flows that include jobs that use the
updated deployment directory definition.
To update directory definitions in the target environment:
1 In SAS Management Console, right-click Schedule Manager and select
Deployment Directories.
2 Edit any outdated deployment directory definitions so that they point to the location
where you moved the source code files.
To identify jobs that use an updated deployment directory definition:
1 In SAS Management Console, right-click Schedule Manager and select Manage
Deployed Jobs.
2 In the Manage Deployed Jobs window, right-click the job and select Properties.
Changes to Note Before You Upgrade to SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3
139
3 In the Properties window, click the Scheduling Details tab.
4 On the Scheduling Details tab, see whether an updated deployment directory
definition is specified in the Directory field.
5 Note the names of all jobs that specify an updated deployment directory definition.
To identify flows that include a job that uses an updated deployment directory definition:
1 In SAS Management Console, right-click Schedule Manager and select Manage
Deployed Jobs.
2 In the Manage Deployed Jobs window, expand a job that uses an updated
deployment directory definition. Note all flows that include the job.
3 Repeat for all jobs that use an updated deployment directory definition.
To reschedule flows that include a job that uses an updated deployment directory
definition:
1 In SAS Management Console, right-click Schedule Manager and select Manage
Deployed Jobs.
2 In the Manage Deployed Jobs window, expand a job that uses an updated
deployment directory definition. Note all flows that include the job.
3 Repeat for all jobs that use an updated deployment directory definition.
To reschedule flows that include a job that uses an updated deployment directory
definition:
1 In SAS Management Console, select Schedule Manager.
2 In the table view on the right, select ALL in the Filter control, and then click Filter
Now. All flows are displayed.
3 In the table view, press the CTRL key and click to select all flows that use an
updated deployment directory definition.

Data Quality Transformations
User Action Required for Migrated Jobs with Data Service
Transformations
The DataFlux Integration Server has been replaced by the DataFlux Data Management
Server. Jobs that include the DataFlux Integration Server require a new server
definition.
You can specify a new server definition in either of the following ways:
n
Open each job and select the new server definition in the transformation.
Note: For this option to work, the DataFlux Data Management Server must be
running and loaded with the jobs that were migrated from the DataFlux Integration
Server.
n
In SAS Management Console, change the name of the DataFlux Data Management
Server to use the same name as the definition for the DataFlux Integration Server.
User Action Required for Migrated Jobs with the Create Match
Code Transformation
If jobs that include the Create Match Code transformation do not run successfully after
migration, verify that the appropriate Quality Knowledge Base (QKB) location value
(DQSETUPLOC value) is specified on the global options window for SAS Data
Integration Studio. To verify the DQSETUPLOC value, select Tools  Options from
the menu bar, click the Data Quality tab, and then verify that the appropriate value is
specified in the DQ Setup Location field.
User Action Required for Migrated Jobs with the Apply Lookup
Standardization Transformation
Migration to 9.3 when the QKB is different on the target system
If you are migrating from SAS 9.1.3 or SAS 9.2 to SAS 9.3, and the target system
has a different QKB than you had on the source system, then user action is required
Changes to Note Before You Upgrade to SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3
141
in order for a job with the Apply Lookup Standardization transformation to work. You
must open each affected job and replace the migrated Apply Lookup Standardization
transformation with a new (4.3) Apply Lookup Standardization transformation. You
must restore the mappings in each job.
Migration to 9.3 when the QKB is the same on the target system
If you are migrating from SAS 9.2 to SAS 9.3, and the target system has the same
QKB that you had on the source system, then no user action is required in order for
a job with the Apply Lookup Standardization transformation to work.
If you are migrating from SAS 9.1.3 to SAS 9.3, and the target system has the same
QKB that you had on the source system, then user action is required in order for a
job with the Apply Lookup Standardization transformation to work.
You can take one of the following actions:
n
Open each affected job and replace the migrated Apply Lookup Standardization
transformation with a new (4.3) Apply Lookup Standardization transformation.
You must restore the mappings in each job. After replacing the transformation,
the Control Flow of the transformation in the job is out of order. Use the Details
panel to restore Control Flow.
n
Alternatively, you could return to your old SAS Data Integration Studio
environment, export the original Apply Lookup Standardization jobs to the SAS
9.1.3 package format, and then use the Import SAS Package wizard in SAS Data
Integration Studio 4.3 to convert and register these jobs on your metadata server.
The following additional steps are required in order for the export SAS Package method
to work:
1 (Optional) In SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3, if you will not be using the migrated
jobs that include the Apply Lookup Standardization transformation, delete them.
Otherwise, you will have to manage multiple copies of the same metadata objects
when you import the same jobs as a SAS Package.
2 In the previous release of SAS Data Integration Studio, create a package of jobs that
uses the same scheme repository type in the Apply Lookup Standardization. Create
one package for the BFD scheme type and a separate package for the NOBFD
scheme type.
142 Chapter 20 / SAS Data Integration Studio
3 In SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3, verify that the default DQ Setup Location is
correct, and that the default Scheme Repository Type matches the type (BFD or
NOBFD) for the package of jobs that you are importing.
Updates to Jobs and Transformations during
Partial Promotion
You might have jobs stored in locations that are not part of the migration process. If
these jobs can be exported to the SAS Package format, you can use the Import from
SAS Package wizard in SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3 to convert and register these
jobs on your metadata server.
If you have jobs that were exported in XML format prior to SAS Data Integration Studio
3.4., you must perform one of the following tasks:
n
include these jobs in a system migration
n
import these jobs in SAS Data Integration Studio 3.4, export them as a SAS
Package, and then import the SAS Package in SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3
Note: When a job in the SAS Package format is imported with the Import from SAS
Package wizard, the job and its transformations are updated as they are during
migration.
Changes to the Tree View
If you are migrating from SAS 9.1.3 to SAS 9.3, you will see a number of changes to the
tree view on the left side of the desktop. For more information, see “About the Initial
Folder Structure for Systems That Are Migrated from SAS 9.1.3” in Chapter 17 of SAS
Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide.
SAS Workspace Server Requirements for
New Jobs
New jobs with code that is generated by SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3 must be
executed on a SAS 9.3 Workspace Server.
Post-Configuration Steps for SAS Data Integration Studio 4.3
143
Impacts on Change Management
Administrators who are responsible for setting up change-management in SAS Data
Integration Studio have additional work to do after migration. For more information
about administering SAS Data Integration Studio, see SAS Intelligence Platform:
Desktop Application Adminstration Guide.
Impacts on SAS Solutions
Some SAS 9.3 solutions might not be available until after the release of SAS Data
Integration Studio 4.3. Accordingly, if your site is using a SAS solution, as a best
practice, do not import individual solution objects until that solution is ready for SAS 9.3
and is installed.
Alternatively, you can migrate or import jobs with missing solution transformations and
simply not open them until after the SAS 9.3 solution is installed. After the SAS 9.3
solution is installed, you could select a job in a tree view and use the Upgrade pop-up
menu option to upgrade the job.
Post-Configuration Steps for SAS Data
Integration Studio 4.3
Adding Resource Templates for Neoview and
Netezza Libraries
Resource templates have been added for Neoview and Netezza libraries. If you install
SAS for the first time using this release, the resource templates are loaded
automatically. However, if you install the maintenance release onto an existing SAS 9.2
installation, the resource templates are not added automatically. If you want to access
resource templates for Neoview and Netezza in SAS Data Integration Studio and you
did not manually add these templates in a previous release of SAS Data Integration
Studio, you must manually add the templates now by completing the post-configuration
144 Chapter 20 / SAS Data Integration Studio
steps for SAS Management Console. For more information, see “SAS Management
Console” on page 249.
Migrating Generated Transformations
If you are migrating from SAS 9.2 or SAS 9.1.3, any existing generated transformations
are updated when you migrate. No additional steps are required.

For more information about SAS Text Miner, see “SAS Text Miner” on page 277.
Upgrade to SAS Document Conversion
Server 1.21
SAS Document Conversion Server 1.21 is automatically installed when you upgrade to
SAS Text Miner 5.1_M1.
If the SAS Document Conversion Server runs on a different Windows machine than
SAS Text Miner, you must apply the maintenance release to both machines (the one
that runs SAS Text Miner and the one that runs the SAS Document Conversion Server),
so both products have applied the maintenance release.
To upgrade to SAS Document Conversion Server 1.21:
1 In the Windows Control panel, use the Add or Remove Programs functionality to
uninstall the SAS Document Conversion Server.
SAS Document Conversion Server 12.1
159
2 Run the SAS Deployment Wizard to update all relevant components, including the
first maintenance release for SAS Text Miner 5.1.
3 After this installation is complete, run the SAS Deployment Wizard again and install
only the SAS Document Conversion Server.
SAS Document Conversion Server 12.1
Upgrading to SAS Document Conversion
Server 12.1
Prior to this release, if you installed SAS Text Miner on a UNIX machine and wanted
document conversion functionality, the SAS Document Conversion Server had to be
installed on a separate Windows machine. With this release, SAS Document
Conversion Server is available on UNIX.
When the SAS Deployment Wizard applies updates to an existing deployment on the
UNIX machine where SAS Text Miner Server is installed, it automatically installs and
starts the SAS Document Conversion Server on its default port (7111). This version of
the SAS Document Conversion Server that is running on UNIX can now be used to
replace the old version that is running on Windows.
SAS Document Conversion Server 12.1 is automatically installed when you upgrade to
SAS Text Miner 12.1.
Prerequisites
The SAS Document Conversion Server requires Java 1.5 or later, either the Java
Runtime Environment (JRE) or the Java Development Kit (JDK). On Windows, the
version of Java installed is detected automatically, but on UNIX, you must ensure that
the Java bin directory is in the PATH.
160 Chapter 25 / SAS Document Conversion Server
Operating SAS Document Conversion Server
On Windows platforms, the SAS Document Conversion Server runs as a Windows
service, and can be started and stopped via the Windows Services Control panel.
On UNIX platforms, the SAS Document Conversion Server runs as a background
process, and can be started and stopped via the scripts in SAS-installation-directory/
SASTextAnalyticsDocumentConversion/12.1. The SAS Document Conversion
Server is started automatically when it is first installed, but it must be restarted manually
each time the machine is restarted.
Change the SAS Document Conversion
Server Port
The default port for the SAS Document Conversion Server is 7111.
To change the port for the SAS Document Conversion Server:
1 Stop the SAS Document Conversion Server:
SAS-installation-directory/SASTextAnalyticsDocumentConversion/12.1/stop
2 Open the following file in a text editor, and specify the new port:
SAS-installation-directory/SASTextAnalyticsDocumentConversion/12.1/
document-conversion-server.port
3 Restart the SAS Document Conversion Server:
SAS-installation-directory/SASTextAnalyticsDocumentConversion/12.1/start
4 Open the following file in a text editor, and specify the new port in the DCSPORT
field: (If the machine name has changed, update the DCSHOST field, too.)
SAS-installation-directory/SASFoundation/9.3/sasv9.cfg
5 If you previously installed the SAS Document Conversion Server on Windows, you
can uninstall it on that machine.

SAS Enterprise Guide 5.1
Here are some of the new features in SAS Enterprise Guide 5.1:
n
SAS Enterprise Guide 5.1 is now available as either a 32-bit or a 64-bit application. If
you are using a 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating system, then you must use the
32-bit version of SAS Enterprise Guide. If you are using a 64-bit Windows operating
system, then you can run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of SAS Enterprise
Guide. Your version of SAS Enterprise Guide must match your version of Microsoft
Office. For example, if you are running the 32-bit version of Microsoft Office, you
must use the 32-bit version of SAS Enterprise Guide.
170 Chapter 27 / SAS Enterprise Guide
n
A new Data Explorer tool enables you to view a SAS data set without adding the
data set to your project.
n
HtmlBlue is the new default style for SAS Report and HTML results.
n
New options enable SAS Enterprise Guide to run tasks in a SAS grid computing
environment and allow parallel execution of tasks on the same server. You can use
these options at the project level or for an individual task.
n
You can create stored processes that are compatible with SAS 9.2 or stored
processes that run only on SAS 9.3 servers.
n
In the new Show ODS Statistical Graph task, you select the graph definition (SGD
file) to use for a selected data source. The graph definition can be created in SAS
Enterprise Guide.
For more information about the new features and enhancements, see the “What’s New
in SAS Enterprise Guide 5.1” topic at http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/
guide.
SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3
New Features in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3
Here are some of the new features in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3:
n
a new program editor with autocompletion for hundreds of SAS statements,
procedures, and options. The program editor also provides parenthesis matching,
built-in syntax and function help, and automatic code formatting.
n
new views and charts for the OLAP Analyzer. You can now view scatter plots,
bubble plots, and tile charts from the OLAP Analyzer. Also, when you open an OLAP
cube, the OLAP Analyzer can automatically create the best graph based on the
data.
n
code analysis to quickly identify the different parts of the program and convert the
program to a process flow. You can also use code analysis to take advantage of grid
computing.
SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 171
n
explicit pass-through mode for queries that use data from an external database.
n
the ability to open reports that were created with SAS Web Report Studio.
n
several new and enhanced tasks that you can use to analyze your data.
For more information about the new features and enhancements, see the “What’s New
in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3” topic at http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/
guide.
About Running on SAS 9.3
SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 and SAS Enterprise Guide 4.305 run on SAS 9.2. If you
install SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 or 4.305 from a SAS 9.2 depot, then to run these
releases on a SAS 9.3 server you must apply hot fix 10 or later. However, if you install
SAS Enterprise Guide 4.305 from a SAS 9.3 depot, then hot fix 10 is included. The
functionality is identical in both releases.
n
When you install SAS 9.3 on the client tier, any existing installation of SAS
Enterprise Guide 4.3 is moved to the SAS 9.3 home directory. By default, this
directory is PROGRAMFILES\SASHome.
n
You are not required to install SAS 9.3 on your client tier. Any existing installation of
SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 can connect to a SAS 9.3 environment.
n
The 4.3 release that ships with SAS 9.3 includes any hot fixes that have been
released since SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 first shipped in August 2010 and the initial
release of SAS 9.3.
If you do not install SAS 9.3 on your client machine (and therefore you are still
running the 4.3 release that was delivered with SAS 9.2), you must download and
apply hot fix C46010 (or later) to your 4.3 installation. For more information, see
http://ftp.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/hotfix.html.
172 Chapter 27 / SAS Enterprise Guide
Upgrading from SAS Enterprise Guide 4.1
The following considerations apply to SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 customers who have
used an earlier release of SAS Enterprise Guide:
n
Support for SAS Enterprise Guide repositories has been discontinued; all metadata
must be stored in a SAS Metadata Repository.
n
Servers are no longer administered through SAS Enterprise Guide Explorer and
must now be administered using SAS Management Console.
n
Users and user groups are no longer administered through SAS Enterprise Guide
Explorer and must now be administered using SAS Management Console.
n
Tasks are no longer enabled or disabled for user groups, so any task assignments
for SAS Enterprise Guide users are not maintained. Any restrictions on SAS
Enterprise Guide tasks must be made through roles and administered though SAS
Management Console. For more information, see the SAS Enterprise Guide chapter
in the SAS Intelligence Platform: Desktop Application Adminstration Guide.
n
The project format has changed from earlier releases. To change the format, you
must either open each project in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 or use the migration
wizard for SAS Enterprise Guide. You must use the migration wizard to import
metadata changes that occurred. For more information, see SAS Intelligence
Platform: Desktop Application Adminstration Guide.
n
The new Map Chart task creates a two-dimensional (choropleth) or threedimensional (block and prism) color map that shows the variation in the value of a
response variable for different geographical areas, such as counties, states, and
countries.
The Create Map Chart task no longer requires specially prepared data (called
“feature tables”) to create useful maps. Now, it is easier to create map charts that
use only a map data set and your response values.
The Create Map Feature Table task, provided with earlier versions of SAS
Enterprise Guide, is no longer needed. Your existing projects that use this task will
still run. However, you will not be able to create new steps that use the Create Map
Feature Table task.
SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 173
n
In previous releases of SAS Enterprise Guide, the project file stored external file
references as absolute paths. In SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3, these external file
references are stored as relative paths, which makes it easier for you to move the
project file, data, and programs to a different folder or a different machine. In SAS
Enterprise Guide 4.3, use pathnames that are relative to the current location of the
project file instead of using a full path.
In SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3, you can open reports that were generated by SAS
Web Report Studio 4.3. You must have SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 installed to
open prompted reports in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3. For more information, see
http://support.sas.com/kb/40/386.html.
n
If the input data source for a task is from a DBMS engine, then SAS uses the sort
functionality on the database to sort the data before running the task. Using the
database functionality rather than the SORT procedure, which is used for files that
are not saved to a database, optimizes the performance of the SAS task.
Upgrading from SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2
The following considerations apply to SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3 customers who have
used an earlier release of SAS Enterprise Guide:
n
The new Map Chart task creates a two-dimensional (choropleth) or threedimensional (block and prism) color map that shows the variation in the value of a
response variable for different geographical areas, such as counties, states, and
countries.
The Create Map Chart task no longer requires specially prepared data (called
“feature tables”) to create useful maps. Now, it is easier to create map charts that
use only a map data set and your response values.
The Create Map Feature Table task, provided with earlier versions of SAS
Enterprise Guide, is no longer needed. Your existing projects that use this task will
still run. However, you will not be able to create new steps that use the Create Map
Feature Table task.
n
In previous releases of SAS Enterprise Guide, the project file stored external file
references as absolute paths. In SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3, these external file
174 Chapter 27 / SAS Enterprise Guide
references are stored as relative paths, which makes it easier for you to move the
project file, data, and programs to a different folder or a different machine. In SAS
Enterprise Guide 4.3, use pathnames that are relative to the current location of the
project file instead of using a full path.
n
In the Import Data task, there are two new performance options that enable you to
specify the level of data cleansing to perform on the imported data. To perform data
cleansing, SAS Enterprise Guide downloads data from the server to the client. You
can specify how much data is downloaded to optimize performance.
n
In SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3, you can open reports that were generated by SAS
Web Report Studio 4.3. You must have SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 installed to
open prompted reports in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3. For more information, see
http://support.sas.com/kb/40/386.html.
n
If the input data source for a task is from a DBMS engine, then SAS uses the sort
functionality on the database to sort the data before running the task. Using the
database functionality rather than the SORT procedure, which is used for files that
are not saved to a database, optimizes the performance of the SAS task.

178 Chapter 28 / SAS Enterprise Miner
n
Performance has been improved for many nodes that execute data-intensive
operations, such as computing transformations or estimating models.
Administration Changes
Deprecation of the SAS Analytics Platform
The SAS Analytics Platform server has been deprecated. The SAS Analytics Platform
service is not used for any SAS 9.3 products or solutions, including SAS Enterprise
Miner 7.1.
Workstation Installation and Configuration
In workstation mode, SAS Foundation 9.3 and SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1 are deployed
on a Microsoft Windows system in a single user configuration. This configuration is
indicated for SAS Enterprise Miner for Desktop, SAS Data Mining for the Classroom,
and SAS Enterprise Miner Personal Client licenses. This deployment does not require
the configuration step of the SAS Deployment Wizard, and installing users should not
select a configuration plan option. Instead of selecting a planned deployment in the SAS
Deployment Wizard, you select to install SAS Foundation and all related products. This
selection installs SAS Enterprise Miner Desktop, SAS Data Mining for the Classroom,
and SAS Enterprise Miner Workstation. The workstation mode configuration does not
require the SAS Metadata Server or the SAS Application Server. Installations based on
SAS 9.2 and earlier did require those servers. However, these servers can be removed
if they are not required for any other SAS software.
Client Server Installation and Configuration
In client/server mode, SAS Foundation 9.3 and SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1 Server can be
installed on a local or remote system for multi-user access. The SAS Web Infrastructure
Platform is installed as the server for the middle tier. This is a standard Web service that
can run on JBoss, WebSphere, or WebLogic servers.
The SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1 Workstation client can be installed on a Microsoft
Windows system, or you can connect to the server by using the Java Web Start client.
For more information, see the SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1: Administration and
Configuration Guide.
SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1_M1
179
SAS Credit Scoring for SAS Enterprise Miner
7.1
SAS Credit Scoring for Enterprise Miner 7.1 has been significantly enhanced by the
addition of a global solution to the problem of applying business constraints to the core
binning process. SAS has developed a new patent-pending process for solving this
problem. This functionality is found and documented in the online Help for the
Interactive Grouping Node.
SAS Text Miner
SAS Text Miner 5.1 is also now available. For more information, see “SAS Text Miner”
on page 277.
Additional Considerations: The Rapid
Predictive Modeler Task
If you install or upgrade to SAS Enterprise Guide 4.305 or the SAS Add-In 4.305 for
Microsoft Office and you are using SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1, you can use the Rapid
Predictive Modeler task only when you are connected to a SAS 9.3 server. Other tasks
in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.305 and the SAS Add-In 4.305 for Microsoft Office work if
you are connected to either a SAS 9.2 or SAS 9.3 server.
SAS Enterprise Miner 7.1_M1

Changes to Formatting and Presentation of
Graphs and Tables
When upgrading from a previous release, you might see different formatting in the
graphs in the Forecasting View, Modeling View, and Series View. In SAS Forecast
Server 12.1, there were changes to the SILK graph component. The information in the
graphs is the same.
Here are some examples of these formatting changes:
n
The values on the x-axis and y-axis could differ from a previous release. For
example, on the y-axis, 4E8 now displays as 400000000. The format for the x-axis is
still used to set the time interval for the x-axis.
n
The organization of the legend has changed. Also, the legend no longer includes the
Reconciled Forecast Lower 95% and Reconciled Forecast Upper 95%.
n
The values in the data table are no longer rounded. In SAS Forecast Server 12.1,
the NLBEST format is used by default, and the format width has been increased to
avoid truncation. In some cases, changes to the 64–bit floating point calculations
could results in different decimal positions. For example, in SAS Forecast Server
12.1, you might see 4.9999999 instead of 5.0.

The previous defaults are still used in the following cases:
n
when you run SAS in batch mode
n
when you use the SAS windowing environment in operating environments other than
UNIX or Windows
Because of the changes in the default values, you will see the following changes:
n
Results are displayed in the HTMLBlue style, which is a modern style well suited for
displaying graphs and tables together. Prior to SAS 9.3, tables were displayed in
monospace, and graphs were displayed using the LISTING style.
n
Analytical procedures that support ODS Graphics automatically create graphs. Prior
to SAS 9.3, you had to explicitly enable ODS Graphics.
n
Tables and graphs are displayed together in the HTML results viewer window. Prior
to SAS 9.3, tables and graphs were displayed separately in the Output and Graph
windows.
198 Chapter 33 / SAS/GRAPH
n
Graphs are no longer saved in the current SAS directory by default. Instead, they
are saved in the directory that corresponds to your SAS Work library. Hence, by
default, graphs are automatically deleted at the end of your SAS session. You can
specify a different directory in your SAS preferences.
To change the defaults:
1 In the SAS Display Manager, select Tools  Options  Preferences. The
Preferences dialog box appears.
2 Click the Results tab.
3 From the Style drop-down list, select a new style.
4 Select LISTING or HTML as the default destination.
5 Disable or enable ODS Graphics by selecting the check box.
6 Change the directory where graphs are saved.
ODS Statistical Graphics
ODS Statistical Graphics (ODS Graphics) software has moved from SAS/GRAPH to
Base SAS. ODS Graphics includes the following components:
n
SAS ODS Graphics Designer
n
SAS ODS Graphics Editor
n
SAS ODS Graphics Procedures (formerly SAS/GRAPH Statistical Graphics
Procedures)

SAS/GRAPH 9.3_M2 199
SAS/GRAPH 9.3_M1
In December 2011 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w50), SAS shipped the first maintenance
release for SAS 9.3. For a list of the issues addressed in this maintenance release, see
http://support.sas.com/techsup/reports/maintSAS93/
SAS93_TS1M1_issues_addressed.html
and search for SAS/GRAPH.
In addition, there are now three predefined librefs for libraries that contain map data
sets. Those librefs are as follows:
n
MAPS
n
MAPSGFK (preproduction)
n
MAPSSAS (preproduction)
Use the MAPS libref in your applications.
CAUTION! Do not use the MAPSGFK or MAPSSAS librefs as they are reserved
for future SAS development. Using these librefs could cause unexpected results when
run with your existing code. When these libraries are no longer preproduction, the
usage information will be available.
The digital vector map data sets for MAPSGFK require an increased allotment of disk
space. For more information, see System Requirements for SAS 9.3 Foundation for
Windows at http://support.sas.com/documentation/installcenter/en/ikfdtnwinsr/
64429/PDF/default/sreq.pdf.
SAS/GRAPH 9.3_M2
In August 2012, SAS shipped the second maintenance release for SAS 9.3 (SAS 9.3,
Rev. 930_12w35). For a list of the issues addressed in this maintenance release, see
http://support.sas.com/techsup/reports/maintSAS93/
SAS93_TS1M2_issues_addressed.html
and search for SAS/GRAPH.
200 Chapter 33 / SAS/GRAPH
In addition, there are now three predefined librefs for libraries that contain map data
sets:
MAPS
points to updated versions of the traditional map data sets that are provided by SAS,
just as in the past. This libref existed prior to the second maintenance release for
SAS 9.3.
MAPSSAS
points to the same updated map data sets as the MAPS libref. This libref is new in
the second maintenance release for SAS 9.3.
MAPSGFK
points to map data sets based on the digital maps from GfK GeoMarketing, the
single source for this map data. These data sets are covered by the GfK
GeoMarketing copyright. See http://support.sas.com/mapsonline/gfklicense. This
libref is also new in the second maintenance release for SAS 9.3.
These new single-source data sets ensure that the map data is accurate and
uniform for the entire world. Additional map data obtained from GfK GeoMarketing
GmbH matches up seamlessly with SAS/GRAPH map data. GfK GeoMarketing
GmbH is solely responsible for all updates and changes to their map data. This
includes political boundary updates which were up to this time hard to obtain. SAS
offers the ability to download the updates to map data via SAS Maps Online (http://
support.sas.com/rnd/datavisualization/mapsonline/html/downloads.html).
Note: Using the GfK map data sets with an existing application that currently uses the
traditional map data sets requires modification to the application. Without these
modifications, using the GfK map data could cause unexpected results. For more
information to aid in modifying existing applications, see “Differences between GfK and
Traditional Map Data Sets ” in Chapter 52 of SAS/GRAPH: Reference.
You can redefine the MAPS libref to point to GfK map data sets by using the MAPS=
system option. For more information, see “MAPS= System Option” in SAS/GRAPH:
Reference.
Note: The digital vector map data sets for MAPSGFK require an increased allotment of
disk space. For more information, see System Requirements for SAS 9.3 Foundation for
SAS/GRAPH 9.3_M2 201
Windows at http://support.sas.com/documentation/installcenter/en/ikfdtnwinsr/
64429/PDF/default/sreq.pdf.

In November 2011 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w45), format publishing is supported for Aster
nCluster and Greenplum. Format publishing enables you to execute SAS PUT function
calls inside the database. You can reference most of the formats that SAS supplies and
the custom formats that you create with PROC FORMAT.
In addition, in-database scoring for Teradata has been enhanced by the addition of the
SAS Embedded Process. The SAS Embedded Process is a SAS server process that
runs within Teradata to read and write data.
In December 2011 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w50), in-database scoring for DB2 has been
enhanced by the addition of the SAS Embedded Process. The SAS Embedded Process
is a SAS server process that runs within DB2 to read and write data.
In April 2012 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w16), you can use the SAS Scoring Accelerator in
conjunction with SAS Model Manager to manage and deploy scoring models in
Greenplum.
In June 2012 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w23), in-database scoring is supported for Oracle
by using the SAS Embedded Process.
In the second maintenance release for SAS 9.3 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w35), indatabase scoring for Greenplum has been enhanced by the addition of the SAS
Embedded Process. Also, SAS Scoring Accelerator and SAS Model Manager now
support importing SAS/STAT linear models and SAS High-Performance Analytics
models from a SAS package file (.SPK).
In December 2012 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w50), installation and configuration
information for the SAS Embedded Process for Hadoop was added to the SAS InDatabase Products: Administrator's Guide. The SAS Embedded Process must be
installed and configured before you can read and write data to a Hadoop Distributed File
System (HDFS) in parallel with High-Performance Analytics (HPA).

SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31
New Features and Enhancements in the SAS
Information Delivery Portal 4.31
Several new features and enhancements were added in the SAS Information Delivery
Portal 4.3. These features have not changed for the SAS Information Delivery Portal
4.31. The difference between these two releases is that the SAS Information Delivery
Portal 4.31 runs on SAS 9.3, and the SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.3 runs on SAS
9.2.
Here are some of the new features in the SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.3:
n
a new report portlet that uses SAS Web Report Studio or the SAS Web Report
Viewer to display SAS Information Maps.
n
the ability to restrict the options on the title bar.
n
a new Customize menu and a redesigned Options menu.
n
if you also have SAS BI Portlets 4.3 installed at your site, then the new Dashboard
Portlet and Diagnostic Portlet are available.
For more information, see http://support.sas.com/software/products/portal.
Upgrading from the SAS Information Delivery
Portal 2.0
The SAS Information Delivery Portal 2.0 runs on SAS 9.1.3. The following
considerations apply to SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31 customers who are
upgrading from the SAS Information Delivery Portal 2.0.
n
The following changes in the user interface can cause differences in the portal:
o
In the SAS Information Delivery Portal 2.0, a Public Kiosk was not available to
comply with a stricter security model. However, starting in the first maintenance
218 Chapter 38 / SAS Information Delivery Portal
release for the SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.2, you can now enable
unchallenged access. For more information, see “Enabling Unchallenged Portal
Access” in Chapter 10 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Web Application
Administration Guide.
n
n
o
The Alerts portlet has been renamed the Stored Process Alerts portlet. This
change avoids possible confusion with a new general-purpose alerts portlet that
is included with the SAS Enterprise BI Server package. The behavior of the
Stored Process Alerts portlet has not changed.
o
The portal uses a new common logon interface to authenticate users. This
change results in a different logon and logoff flow. For example, by default no
Logon page appears after you log off.
The following changes affect portlets that have been migrated:
o
Due to infrastructure changes to the portal, custom-developed portlets require
code changes. For more information, see Developing Portlets for the SAS
Information Delivery Portal.
o
Migrated WebDAV content and the WebDAV graph portlet use a new SAS
Content Server instead of a Xythos WebFile server.
o
Migrated navigator portlets might display locations that are no longer
documented. The documentation for the SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31
describes a SAS Folders tree. The documentation for the SAS Information
Delivery Portal 2.0 described a root-level folder called the BIP Tree.
The following changes affect SAS Publication Channels:
o
Users might need to re-create subscriber profiles and subscriptions for channels
that have been migrated.
o
Due to stricter security enforcement, users cannot create subscriber profiles by
default. For a user to create subscriber profiles, an administrator must grant
permissions to the user in SAS Management Console.
o
SAS reports cannot be published.
SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31
o
n
219
The channels to which users subscribe are automatically added to their
Publication Channel Subscriptions portlets only if the related profiles have been
defined with a delivery mechanism of Portal.
The following changes apply to SAS Information Maps and data explorations:
o
Depending on the software that is installed at your site, the portal now uses SAS
Web Report Studio or the SAS Web Report Viewer to display SAS Information
Maps.
o
Data explorations are no longer available from the portal. Any data explorations
from earlier version of SAS are converted to reports that can be viewed in SAS
Web Report Studio.
o
The Information Map Viewer portlet is no longer available. You can use the new
report portlet to display reports with data from information maps. Any Information
Map Viewer portlets from previous releases of SAS are converted to report
portlets.
o
Publishing SAS Information Maps is no longer supported.
Upgrading from the SAS Information Delivery
Portal 4.2
The SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.2 runs on SAS 9.2. The following considerations
apply to SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31 customers who are upgrading from the
SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.2.
n
Depending on the software that is installed at your site, the portal now uses SAS
Web Report Studio or the SAS Web Report Viewer to display SAS Information
Maps.
n
Data explorations are no longer available from the portal. Any data explorations from
earlier version of SAS are converted to reports that can be viewed in SAS Web
Report Studio.
n
The Information Map Viewer portlet is no longer available. You can use the new
report portlet to display reports with data from information maps. Any Information
Map Viewer portlets from previous releases of SAS are converted to report portlets.
220 Chapter 38 / SAS Information Delivery Portal
n
Publishing SAS Information Maps is no longer supported.
Upgrading from the SAS Information Delivery
Portal 4.3
Administration Changes in the 4.31 Release
The 4.31 release of the SAS Information Delivery Portal includes the following changes
and enhancements:
n
The content promotion tool includes a new build.properties file. When
promoting portal content from a SAS 9.1.3 environment to a SAS 9.2 or SAS 9.3
environment, the values for certain parameters in this file are modified to ensure that
the appropriate metadata repository ID and the names of the internal accounts for
sasadm and sastrust are specified to prepare the target system.
n
An additional upgradeMetadata command is used when promoting a Portal
Application Tree or a portlet instance to a target SAS 9.3 system from a source
system with SAS 9.1.3 or SAS 9.2.
n
Message logging is accomplished with logging contexts that are added to the
SASportal-log4j file.
Features Ported from the 4.3 Release
The following enhancements and changes that were introduced in the 4.3 release have
been ported to the 4.31 release:
n
Messages that are displayed at the top of pages and in the title bar of portlets can be
hidden by specifying two new properties and their values in SAS Management
Console.
n
A content promotion tool is provided. This tool consists of stand-alone batch scripts,
shell scripts, and metadata extraction templates. These scripts and templates use
the metadata server's import and export capabilities to promote portal metadata.
n
By default, SAS BI Portlets are displayed with the Flex interface.
SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31
221
n
You can alert users by displaying a warning message before the users are logged
out of their inactive sessions. For information about using this feature, see the SAS
Intelligence Platform: Middle-Tier Administration Guide.
n
You can choose to enable unchallenged access to the portal. Users can then access
the portal and interact with selected content without providing a user ID and
password. The option is similar to the Public Kiosk feature in the SAS 9.1.3 release
of the SAS Information Delivery Portal.
n
A Diagnostics Portlet enables you to view information about the portal's
environment.
The SAS Web OLAP Viewer for Java is no longer supported. It has been replaced by
functionality that is available in SAS Web Report Studio. Therefore, the SAS Information
Delivery Portal 4.31 contains the following changes:
n
Bookmarks and data explorations are not supported.
n
All data explorations are migrated to SAS Web Report Studio 4.31 reports. However,
users can still use the search capabilities within the SAS Information Delivery Portal
4.31 to find those reports, as well as information maps.
n
The SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31 includes a new Report Portlet that displays
SAS Web Report Studio 4.31 reports.
n
During software updates, the SAS Information Delivery Portal converts instances of
the Information Map Viewer portlet to the new Report Portlet.
n
Visual Data Explorer is not available to display information maps.
If the SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31 runs on a JBoss Web application server and
Secure Sockets Layer is configured in your environment, then edit the server.xml file to
specify the emptySessionPath parameter within the section on SSL Connector. This
is necessary to enable the SAS BI Portlets to run in this environment.
222 Chapter 38 / SAS Information Delivery Portal
SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31_M1
In December 2011 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w50), SAS shipped the first maintenance
release of the SAS Information Delivery Portal. This maintenance release includes a
change to the command syntax for the removePortal command that is used for
removing a User or Group Permissions Tree. When an existing Permissions Tree is
being deleted and this tree contains non-DBCS characters or non-Latin characters,
include the PermissionsTree_extract.xml file instead of the PermissionsTree.xml file in
the command syntax.
No additional configuration steps are required to upgrade to SAS Information Delivery
Portal 4.31_M1.
SAS Information Delivery Portal 4.31_M2
In August 2012 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w35), SAS shipped the second maintenance
release for the SAS Information Delivery Portal. This maintenance release includes hot
fixes for the SAS Information Delivery Portal. For a list of the issues addressed in this
maintenance release, see http://support.sas.com/techsup/reports/maintSAS93/
SAS93_TS1M2_issues_addressed.html and search for SAS Information Delivery Portal.
No additional configuration steps are required to upgrade to SAS Information Delivery
Portal 4.31_M2.
Updating Favorites in Your Web
Browser
After the deployment of any new release, you must change the release number in the
resolved URL that you use to open the product. For example, if you upgraded from 4.2
Updating Favorites in Your Web Browser
223
to 4.31, then the updated URL is http://
server:port/SASLogon/index.jsp?_sasapp=Info+Delivery+Portal+4.3.
If you saved the URL for the 4.2 release as a Favorite link in a Web browser, then this
link is broken when you upgrade to the 4.31 release. You must re-create this favorite for
the 4.3 release. You can also access the SAS Information Delivery Portal by using this
unresolved link: http://server:port/SASPortal.

SAS Information Map Studio 4.31
Special Considerations in SAS Information
Map Studio 4.31
n
SAS Information Map Studio cannot open an information map that uses the
advanced join model, assigned results filter, or localized properties features that
were introduced in SAS 9.3. You can use the INFOMAPS procedure in SAS 9.3 to
add these features to an information map.
n
For SAS Information Map Studio, continue to use stored processes that are
compatible with SAS 9.2. Upgrading stored processes to use new features that are
228 Chapter 39 / SAS Information Map Studio
available in SAS 9.3 might cause errors when the upgraded stored processes are
used by information maps. If you have already upgraded your stored processes and
you are experiencing problems, you can make your stored processes compatible
with SAS 9.2. For more information, see the Make Compatible feature in the SAS
9.3 Management Console Help.
n
If you cannot find a stored process in SAS Information Map Studio, the SAS 9.3
Hide from user option might have been specified for the stored process.
Upgrading from SAS Information Map Studio
3.1
SAS Information Map Studio 3.1 runs on SAS 9.1.3. The following considerations apply
to SAS Information Map Studio 4.31 customers who are upgrading from SAS
Information Map Studio 3.1.
n
The following changes to filters and prompts might affect how your filters function:
o
When you create a filter that is based on a column, the filter can now be seen in
SAS Web Report Studio. For information about how to hide a filter from SAS
Web Report Studio, see the SAS Information Map Studio Help.
o
Prior to SAS Information Map Studio 4.2, if no value was returned for an identitydriven property, then an error message was issued when a filter that used one of
these properties was executed. In SAS Information Map Studio 4.31, no error
message is issued. Instead, when no value is returned for an identity-driven
property, an empty string value is used in the filter. For more information about
identity-driven properties, see the chapter on fine-grained controls in the SAS
Intelligence Platform: Security Administration Guide.
o
When you create a prompt, you can no longer use a data item's value-generation
method for that prompt. In SAS Information Map Studio 4.31, you can specify a
similar method within the prompt itself. Any prompt that was created before this
release and that relies on the value-generation method of a data item will be
converted to use its own corresponding method. If a converted prompt originally
used a static (custom) list from a data item, then that list is added to the prompt
during the conversion.
SAS Information Map Studio 4.31 229
o
When you import, migrate, or open from XML an information map that was
created prior to SAS Information Map Studio 4.2, the following special
considerations apply to any of its prompts with a static (custom) list:
n
If the static list contains duplicate formatted values, then each unformatted
value is enclosed in square brackets ([ ]) and appended to its corresponding
formatted value.
n
If the static list contains a row that is invalid in SAS Information Map Studio
4.31 (for example, if a row contains blank or null unformatted values), then
the row is deleted.
o
When you export or migrate an information map that was created prior to SAS
Information Map Studio 4.2, the default values for any multi-value prompts within
that information map are saved in reverse order.
o
SAS Information Map Studio 4.31 cannot automatically convert prompt values to
uppercase before a query is run. Any prompt that was created prior to SAS
Information Map Studio 4.2 but that is saved in this release will also lose that
ability. For more information about prompts, see the SAS Information Map Studio
4.31 Help.
n
You can no longer export information maps as XML files. (You can still use the
Open from XML menu option to import previously exported information maps.) For
information about importing and exporting information maps as packages, see the
section about using promotion tools in the SAS Intelligence Platform: System
Administration Guide.
n
The icons in the user interface no longer indicate when a table column is a unique
key or when you are denied WriteMetadata access to an information map or folder.
Upgrading from SAS Information Map Studio
4.2
SAS Information Map Studio 4.31 has the same new features and enhancements as
SAS Information Map Studio 4.2. The difference between these two releases is that
SAS Information Map Studio 4.31 runs on SAS 9.3, and SAS Information Map Studio
4.2 runs on SAS 9.2.
230 Chapter 39 / SAS Information Map Studio
SAS Information Map Studio 4.31_M1
In December 2011 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w50), SAS shipped the first maintenance
release of SAS Information Map Studio 4.31. This maintenance release has the same
new features and enhancements as SAS Information Map Studio 4.31. No additional
configuration steps are required to upgrade to SAS Information Map Studio 4.31_M1.
SAS Information Map Studio 4.31_M2
In August 2012 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w35), SAS shipped the second maintenance
release for SAS Information Map Studio 4.31.
In previous releases of SAS Information Map Studio, if you specify a relative date or
timestamp value for a relational filter, Sunday is used as the first day of the week,
regardless of locale. Starting with the second maintenance release for SAS Information
Map Studio 4.31, the first day of the week is based on the locale of the information map.

SAS Stored Processes
n
When you register a new stored process by using the New Stored Process wizard in
SAS Management Console, that stored process can use the new features that are
available in SAS 9.3. If your client does not support new stored process features,
then you might need to make your stored processes compatible with 9.2. For more
information about how to make stored processes compatible with SAS 9.2, see the
Help in SAS Management Console.
n
Stored processes that use the new features that are available with SAS 9.3 and that
pass parameters to a workspace server now return the program status to the client.
Programs that previously showed errors only in the log might now also report errors
to the client.
SAS BI Web Services
n
SAS BI Web Services for .NET has been discontinued. SAS BI Web Services for
Java supports .NET versions of generated Web services that are migrated from SAS
9.2 in a way that is transparent for clients.
n
You do not need to use the Deploy as Web Service wizard to make changes to a
Web service—any changes take effect immediately. However, the Web Services
Description Language (WSDL) is cached, so you must use ?wsdl&reload=true to
regenerate the WSDL when you change the stored process.
SAS Integration Technologies 9.3_M1
In December 2011 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w50), SAS shipped the first maintenance

SAS Integration Technologies 9.3_M2
In August 2012 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w35), SAS shipped the second maintenance
release for SAS Integration Technologies 9.3. One of the new features is the
JREOPTIONS parameter in the configuration file for the object spawner. The
JREOPTIONS parameter simplifies the task of configuring the object spawner for use
with a message queue polling server.
No additional configuration steps are required to upgrade to SAS Integration

The SAS 9.3 Metadata Server includes a new server-based facility that performs
metadata server backups automatically on a scheduled basis. By default, backups are
performed daily at 1:00 a.m. server local time. The new facility can also be used to
SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform System Administration
237
perform recoveries (including roll-forward recovery) and ad hoc backups. The facility is
available from the Metadata Manager plug-in in SAS Management Console. For more
information, see “Backing Up and Recovering the SAS Metadata Server” in Chapter 12
of SAS Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide.
The following features have been removed in SAS 9.3:
n
The Backup Wizard and the Restore Wizard have been removed from SAS
Management Console.
n
The %OMABAKUP macro is not supported in SAS 9.3.
n
The metadata server batch command no longer has a restore option. Restores must
be performed using the server-based backup and recovery facility, which is available
in the Metadata Manager plug-in in SAS Management Console.
When you migrate to SAS 9.3, the SAS Deployment Wizard removes all SAS 9.1.3 and
SAS 9.2 backup and restore jobs, backup schedules, and backup programs that are
registered in SAS Management Console.
Metadata Server Administration
n
The following options for the metadata server configuration file (omaconfig.xml) have
been deprecated:
o
OMA ALERTEMAILATTACHMENT
o
OMA JNLPRE
n
The %OMARUNAN macro has been deprecated. It has been replaced by the
-optimizeIMDB option for the metadata server command.
n
The %OMAPORT macro is not supported in SAS 9.3.
n
The Replication Wizard has been removed from SAS Management Console.
For more information, see SAS Note 40834 at http://support.sas.com/kb/40/834.html.
You can use the SAS Migration Utility to migrate your SAS content from one SAS 9.3
deployment to another. For more information, see “SAS Migration Utility Reference” in
Chapter 1 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide.
238 Chapter 41 / SAS Intelligence Platform
Metadata Management
When promoting metadata from a SAS 9.1.3 system, refer to “Special Considerations
for Promoting Content to SAS 9.3 from an Earlier SAS Version” in Chapter 21 of SAS
Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide.
The SAS Folders tree includes new virtual folders from which you can promote SAS
Application Server objects and security objects (including users, user groups, roles, and
access control templates). The virtual folders are represented by white folder icons.
They are called virtual folders because they do not actually store metadata objects.
SAS Framework Data Server
The SAS Table Server has been replaced by the SAS Framework Data Server. This
server is the default location for middle-tier data such as alerts, comments, and
workflows, as well as data for the SAS Content Server and SAS Service Parts
Optimization. The server is provided as an alternative to using a third-party DBMS. (The
server cannot be used as a general-purpose data store.)
SAS Deployment Tester Server
The SAS Deployment Tester Server is not started by default in SAS 9.3. If the server is
installed as a Windows service, it is set up to be started manually. On UNIX and z/OS
systems, the server is not included in the sas.servers script.
When you finish deploying, upgrading, or applying maintenance to SAS 9.3, the SAS
Deployment Tester Server is automatically started on each server-tier and middle-tier
machine so that you can test the newly installed components. After you perform these
initial tests, as a best practice, stop the server so that the resources will be available for
other processes. To run subsequent tests for troubleshooting or other purposes, you
can start the server as needed.
For more information, see “Using the Deployment Tester” in Chapter 7 of SAS
Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide.

Note: If upgrading to SAS IT Resource Management 3.3 is not allowed, you can
migrate to that version, or you can install it. For information about these topics, see the
SAS IT Resource Management 3.3: Migration Guide.
For more information about SAS IT Resource Management, including What’s New in IT
Resource Management 3.3, see the Product Documentation page for SAS IT Resource
Management.
Upgrading to IT Resource Management
3.3
Upgrading your existing software deployment to SAS IT Resource Management 3.3
enables you to update your software and configuration yet retain your existing work. In
other words, you can replace (or overlay) your current version of SAS IT Resource
Management with SAS IT Resource Management 3.3. With this process, you are not
moving content from server A to server B. Instead, you are modifying the content in
place.
This function is helpful if your site has a limited supply of hardware to use for installing
new releases of SAS software. However, using this functionality prevents you from
validating the new software by running it in parallel with the older software that is in
production.
CAUTION! The upgrade process cannot be reversed. Once you upgrade your
software, you cannot revert to the previous version. You can restore the older system
from backups if you have created the necessary backups.
This functionality is available only when multiple product versions exist within the same
SAS release.
Post-Configuration Steps for SAS IT Resource Management 3.3
247
How to Launch the Upgrade Process
On the system that has SAS IT Resource Management 3.21 installed, launch the SAS
Deployment Wizard from the SAS Software Depot that is associated with your new SAS
IT Resource Management 3.3 order. Respond to the prompts.
Note: All SAS 9.3 software that is installed on the machine is updated at the same
time. If multiple tiers are installed, the software for all tiers is updated at the same time
in the same SAS Deployment Wizard session.
Post-Configuration Steps for SAS IT
Resource Management 3.3
Immediately following the installation, a dialog box is displayed, which prompts you to
select the configuration directory and level to update. If you have multiple tiers
configured to different configuration directories, you will see a separate entry for each
directory. You can choose which configuration directory and level to update, or click
Cancel to do this later in the SAS Deployment Manager.
Note: You must configure the updated SAS products before you run them.
After the configuration directory and level are updated, a Deployment Complete dialog
box is displayed. Click Next and an UpdateInstructions.html page is displayed in your
browser. Follow these instructions to complete the software update.
Note: If this is the last configuration directory and level to process, the Select
Configuration Directory/Level dialog box displays a final status for all items.

Changes to the Metadata Manager Plug-in
In SAS Management Console 9.3, the Backup Wizard and the Replication Wizard have
been removed from the Metadata Manager plug-in. These wizards have been replaced
by the Server Backup and Restore facility, which is in the Metadata Utilities folder of the
Metadata Manager plug-in. If you have created or scheduled any backup or restore
jobs, these jobs will not run in SAS Management Console 9.3. You must use the Server
Backup and Restore facility to re-create those jobs.
Stored Processes in SAS 9.3
When you register a new stored process by using the New Stored Process wizard in
SAS Management Console, that stored process can use the new features that are
available in SAS 9.3. If your client does not support new stored process features, then
you might need to make your stored processes compatible with 9.2. For more
information about how to make stored processes compatible with SAS 9.2, see the Help
in SAS Management Console.

OLAP cubes that were built in SAS 9.2 can be used in SAS 9.3 without changes or
migration. Before rebuilding your cubes in SAS 9.3, review your cubes to ensure that all
paths are correct.
Note: Cubes that you build in SAS 9.3 are not supported on SAS 9.2 OLAP Servers.
The migration process has not changed since the SAS 9.2 release. For more
information, see “About Migrated OLAP Cubes” in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence
Platform: Migration Guide.
SAS OLAP Cube Studio
Wizard processes such as the Cube Designer have been improved to facilitate the cube
edit process. The wizards feature fewer pages and better navigation to other pages. All
of the functionality of previous versions has been retained, and new features have been
added. For more information, see the “What’s New” topic in the Help for SAS OLAP
Cube Studio 4.3.
SAS OLAP Server Monitor
In SAS Management Console 9.3, the SAS OLAP Server Monitor has been redesigned
for efficiency and to enable the control of load-balanced SAS OLAP Servers. For more
information, see the Help for the SAS OLAP Server Monitor by using the Help menu in
SAS Management Console.

Upgrading from SAS Web Analytics 5.3.3 and
Earlier
To upgrade from SAS Web Analytics 5.3.3 and earlier to SAS Web Analytics 5.41, you
must first install SAS Web Analytics 5.41, and then migrate your Web marts.
SAS Web Analytics 5.41 289
Upgrading from SAS Web Analytics 5.4
SAS Web Analytics 5.41 has the same new features and enhancements as SAS Web
Analytics 5.4. The difference between these two releases is that SAS Web Analytics
5.41 runs on SAS 9.3, and SAS Web Analytics 5.4 runs on SAS 9.2.
Post-Configuration Steps for SAS Web
Analytics 5.41
Step 1: Identify Directory Paths
After you install SAS 9.3 and SAS Web Analytics 5.41, you must complete your
configuration by identifying the directory paths for your Web mart data on SAS 9.3.
Choose the post-configuration process that applies to your site.
n
Web mart directory path is unchanged. (Recommended)
If the directory path for the Web mart is unchanged from the SAS Web Analytics 5.4
installation on SAS 9.2, then continue to use the existing directory. The existing Web
mart data directory will be used by SAS Web Analytics 5.41.
Note: If you have installed SAS 9.3 on a new machine, you must copy the Web
mart data to the new machine.
You must redeploy all of the ETL jobs for each site using SAS Data Integration
Studio. For more information, see “Redeploying Jobs for Scheduling” in Chapter 10
of SAS Data Integration Studio: User's Guide.
Note: You must redeploy the jobs even if the library path did not change.
n
Web mart directory path is new.
If you are using a different Web mart directory path from the SAS Web Analytics 5.4
installation on SAS 9.2, complete the following steps:
1 Copy the Web mart data to the new directory path.
Note: You must copy the data to the new directory path regardless of whether
SAS 9.3 was installed on the same machine or on a new machine.
290 Chapter 56 / SAS Web Analytics
2 Modify the path in the metadata of all Weba libraries. Use SAS Management
Console to modify the directory path.
3 Redeploy all of the ETL jobs for each site using SAS Data Integration Studio. For
more information, see “Redeploying Jobs for Scheduling” in Chapter 10 of SAS
Data Integration Studio: User's Guide.
To modify the library properties using SAS Management Console:
1 Select Data Library Manager  Libraries to locate the library that you want to
modify.
2 Right-click the library and select Properties.
3 Click the Options tab and modify the path for the library.
For more information, see the SAS Management Console online Help.
Step 2: Migrate Web Marts (for SAS Web Analytics 5.3.3 and
Earlier)
You must migrate your Web marts to 5.4 Web marts. Before you migrate, review
“Upgrading from SAS Web Analytics 5.3.3 and Earlier” on page 288. To migrate the
5.3x Web marts to 5.4 Web marts, see “Preparing to Migrate” in Appendix 6 of the SAS
Web Analytics 5.4: Administrator’s Guide.
SAS Web Analytics 5.41 291
Update the appserver_autoexec.sas and sasv9.cfg Files (SAS
Web Analytics 5.41 to 5.41 Migration Only)
To migrate from SAS Web Analytics 5.41 to SAS Web Analytics 5.41 on a different
machine, you must complete these steps to update the appserver_autoexec.sas and
sasv9.cfg files.
CAUTION! You must complete these steps, or you will not be able to
successfully run SAS Web Analytics jobs or reports.
1 On the server tier, navigate to the SAS-configuration-directory\lev
\appserver context directory. The default appserver context is SASApp.
n
Example for Windows operating systems: C:\SAS\config\Lev1\SASApp
n
Example for UNIX operating systems: /usr/local/config/Lev1/SASApp
2 Edit the sasv9.cfg file.
n
On the line that follows –rsasuser, add the following text for Windows operating
systems:
-insert sasautos "SAS-installation-directory\SASFoundation\9.3\weba\ucmacros"
n
Add the following text for UNIX operating systems:
-insert sasautos "SAS-installation-directory/SASFoundation/9.3/ucmacros/weba"
After you make your changes, save the sasv9.cfg file.
3 Edit the appserver_autoexec.sas file.
n
On the line that follows /* Include autoexec files */, add the following
text for Windows operating systems:
%include "SAS-installation-directory\SASFoundation\9.3\weba\
sasmisc\weba_autoexec.sas"
n
Add the following text for UNIX operating systems:
%include "SAS-installation-directory/SASFoundation/9.3/misc/
weba/weba_autoexec.sas"
After you make your changes, save the appserver_autoexec.sas file.

SAS 9.3
High-Level Steps and Resources
In the November 2010 release of SAS 9.2,
SAS Web OLAP Viewer for Java was
discontinued, and data explorations are now
maintained as reports. When you upgrade your
existing SAS 9.2 deployment, the SAS
deployment tools automatically convert each
bookmark in a data exploration to a report that
you can view in SAS Web Report Studio.
If the automatic conversion fails, a warning
appears in the Instructions.html file. To convert
these data explorations manually, see
“Manually Convert Data Explorations to
Reports” in Chapter 5 of SAS Intelligence
Platform: Migration Guide.
For more information, see “Upgrading to SAS
9.3” on page 294.
Upgrading to SAS 9.3
Before You Convert
If a data exploration was created from an OLAP cube or SAS Information Map that is
saved to a restricted directory (such as My Folder), then the converted report will not be
available to other users at your site. Before converting a data exploration, re-create this
data exploration by using a SAS Information Map. Users of the final report must have
permission to the directory where the information map is saved.
If your data exploration includes a calculated measure that is used as a slicer, this
calculated measure is removed when the data exploration is converted to a report. As a
result, you cannot open the report in SAS Web Report Studio. To avoid this issue, move
the calculated measure to the row or column axis before you convert.
Note: If you have not applied the second or third maintenance release for SAS 9.2,
then you cannot use the SAS Visual Data Explorer to save data explorations as reports.
Upgrading to SAS 9.3 295
If you want to save your data explorations as reports before upgrading your SAS 9.2
deployment, use SAS Web OLAP Viewer 4.2 for Java. For more information, see SAS
Note 34876 at http://support.sas.com/kb/34/876.html.
Differences between Data Explorations and
Reports
Some reports might appear slightly different from the data explorations. Here are some
examples of how the report and data exploration differ:
n
The colors in the report and data exploration are different.
n
Conditional images are removed from the reports.
n
Calculated measures that are used as slicers are lost when the data exploration is
converted to a report.
n
The Percent of Total columns and rows are removed from the reports.
n
A color-mapped table is removed or replaced by a noncolor-mapped table.
o
If a data exploration contains a color-mapped table and a table, then the colormapped table is removed.
o
If a data exploration contains only a color-mapped table, then the color-mapped
table is replaced with a table.
n
If a data exploration contains a bar-line chart, then this chart might not display as
expected. To fix this problem, open the report in SAS Web Report Studio. Right-click
on the chart and select Assign Data. Then save the report.
n
To view the drill-to-detail data of a report, the associated information map must have
the Drill-to-Detail option selected in SAS Information Map Studio.
n
If a data exploration displays data values in a graph, these data values are not
automatically displayed in the graph in the converted report. To display these values
in the graph in the report, open the graph properties and select the option for
displaying data values.

New Features in SAS Web Report Studio 4.31
SAS Web Report Studio 4.31 has the same new features and enhancements as SAS
Web Report Studio 4.3. The difference between these two releases is that SAS Web
Report Studio 4.31 runs on SAS 9.3, and SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 runs on SAS 9.2.
Here are some of the new features in SAS Web Report Studio 4.3:
n
improved layout for report headers and footers.
n
enhanced graph features. Skins are available for graphs, so you can change the
appearance. A bubble plot has been added.
n
the ability to view and print comments with the report output.
n
the ability to copy sections of reports.
n
the ability to select multiple publication channels when you schedule a report and the
ability for multiple users to make multiple schedules for a single report.
n
three new UDP ports for in-process scheduling: 7570, 7571, and 7572. For more
information, see “Pre-installation Checklist for Ports for SAS” in Chapter 2 of SAS
Intelligence Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide.
For more information about the new features and enhancements in SAS Web Report
Studio 4.3, see the “What’s New in SAS Web Report Studio 4.3” topic at http://
support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/wrs/.
Upgrading from SAS Web Report Studio 3.1
SAS Web Report Studio 3.1 runs on SAS 9.1.3. The following considerations apply to
SAS Web Report 4.31 customers who are upgrading from SAS Web Report Studio 3.1.
n
A SAS Web Report Studio 3.1 user who had a role of report author might not have
the same capabilities after they upgrade to SAS Web Report Studio 4.3. If you no
300 Chapter 58 / SAS Web Report Studio
longer have access to a capability in SAS Web Report Studio 4.2, contact your
system administrator.
n
SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 uses a themes architecture, which is also used by other
SAS Intelligence Platform clients, such as the SAS Information Delivery Portal. The
product-specific method of branding that was available in SAS Web Report Studio
3.1 is no longer supported. Branded areas must be redefined using themes.
For more information, see “SAS Web Application Themes and Custom Report
Styles” in Chapter 6 of SAS Intelligence Platform: Web Application Administration
Guide.
n
The following changes were made to reports:
o
Parent totals for OLAP reports are now defined as totals that retrieve parent
values from the data source. (In SAS Web Report Studio 3.1, parent totals were
an aggregation.) The new visual totals are derived from the values that are
included in the output.
o
How relational dates display in line graphs has changed. For example, in SAS
Web Report Studio 3.1, lines for two years were overlaid, and the dates along the
horizontal axis were continuous (for example, January through December). In
SAS Web Report Studio 4.3, the lines appear one before the other, and the dates
on the horizontal axis repeat (for example, January through December for the
first line and January through December for the second line).
o
In SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 and 4.31, each report header and footer is divided
into three content areas (left, middle, and right). When you upgrade a report that
was created in SAS Web Report Studio 3.1 or 4.2, the existing content in the
report header or footer will be placed in the middle content area of the header or
footer in the upgraded report.
o
In SAS Web Report Studio 4.3, data explorations are converted into reports.
During migration, the conversion of data explorations to reports will not succeed
if any of the objects are based on cubes until the cube files are rebuilt. If the
LoadContent step displays a warning during migration, follow the instructions in
the Instructions.html file to build the cube files and modify and re-run the
LoadContent scripts.

For more information about how the workflow has changed for building reports, see
“SAS Web Report Studio 4.2: Exploring Changes to the Report-Building Workflow” at
http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/wrs/changereportbldg42/index.html.
Upgrading from SAS Web Report Studio 4.2
In SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 and 4.31, each report header and footer is divided into
three content areas (left, middle, and right). When you upgrade a report that was
created in SAS Web Report Studio 3.1 or 4.2, the existing content in the report header
or footer will be placed in the middle content area of the header or footer in the
upgraded report.
In SAS Web Report Studio 4.3, data explorations are converted into reports. During
migration, the conversion of data explorations to reports will not succeed if any of the
objects are based on cubes until the cube files are rebuilt. If the LoadContent step
displays a warning during migration, follow the instructions in the Instructions.html file to
build the cube files and modify and re-run the LoadContent scripts.
Upgrading from SAS Web Report Studio 4.3
SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 has the same new features and enhancements as SAS
Web Report Studio 4.31. The only difference between these two releases is that SAS
Web Report Studio 4.31 runs on SAS 9.3, and SAS Web Report Studio 4.3 runs on
SAS 9.2.
SAS Web Report Studio 4.31_M1
In December 2011 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_11w50), SAS shipped the first maintenance
release of SAS Web Report Studio 4.31. For a list of the issues addressed in this
maintenance release, see http://support.sas.com/techsup/reports/maintSAS93/
SAS93_TS1M1_issues_addressed.html.
No additional configuration steps are required to upgrade to SAS Web Report Studio
4.31_M1.
302 Chapter 58 / SAS Web Report Studio
SAS Web Report Studio 4.31_M2
In August 2012 (SAS 9.3, Rev. 930_12w35), SAS shipped the second maintenance
release of SAS Web Report Studio 4.31.
Updating Favorites in Your Web
Browser
After the deployment of any new release, you must change the release number in the
resolved URL that you use to open the product. For example, if you upgraded from 4.2
to 4.31, then the updated URL is http://
server:port/SASLogon/index.jsp?_sasapp=Web+Report+Studio+4.3&.
If you saved the URL for the 4.2 release as a Favorite link in a Web browser, then this
link is broken when you upgrade to the 4.31 release. You must re-create this favorite for
the 4.31 release. You can also access SAS Web Report Studio 4.31 by using this
unresolved link: http://server:port/SASWebReportStudio.

Glossary
planned deployment
a method of installing and configuring a SAS business intelligence system. This
method requires a deployment plan that contains information about the different
hosts that are included in the system and the software and SAS servers that are to
be deployed on each host. The deployment plan then serves as input to an
installation and configuration tool called the SAS Deployment Wizard.
SAS configuration directory
the location where configuration information for a SAS deployment is stored. The
configuration directory contains configuration files, logs, scripts, repository files, and
other items for the SAS software that is installed on the machine.
SAS Deployment Manager
a cross-platform utility that manages SAS deployments. The SAS Deployment
Manager supports functions such as updating passwords for your SAS deployment,
rebuilding SAS Web applications, and removing configurations.
SAS Deployment Wizard
a cross-platform utility that installs and initially configures many SAS products. Using
a SAS installation data file and, when appropriate, a deployment plan for its initial
input, the wizard is designed to prompt the customer for all the remaining input at the
start of the session so that the customer does not have to monitor an entire
deployment.
SAS installation directory
the location where your SAS software is installed. This location is the parent
directory to the installation directories of all SAS products. The SAS installation
directory is also referred to as SAS Home in the SAS Deployment Wizard.
304 Chapter 58 / SAS Web Report Studio
software order e-mail (SOE)
an e-mail message that is sent to your site that announces the availability of the
software and details the order. It also lists the initial installation steps and, for SAS
9.3, contains instructions for using Electronic Software Delivery (ESD), if applicable.
