If you have not reviewed them yet,
please refer to the System Requirements.
- System requirement documentation is available from Install Center,
Your SAS installation data file (SID file) is on your media
and is valid for a limited time.
- If your installation process fails because the SID file has expired,
contact your SAS Site Representative for a new SID file, contained
in the Renewal Software Order E-mail.
Microsoft Windows users must be logged on
as an Administrator.
- For Windows, the user name must not have a password that contains
more than one dollar sign ($). A password cannot contain single or
double quotes, less than or greater than signs (< >) or an ampersand (&).
- Blank passwords are not permitted.
UNIX users should install under a sas account.
The root account should not be used.
Confirm that you have received the software
that you expected.
- In your installation kit, find the SAS Order Information document,
which lists the software that you ordered. Verify that the SAS products
and servers listed are correct and match what you expected to receive.
If they are not what you expect, contact SAS Customer Service at
- The SAS Software Depot is a networked repository of your SAS
software. After you have installed your software, the SAS Order
Information document will also be available from your SAS Software
Depot at /install_doc/<order number>/soi.html.
- To view an expanded list of the software that makes up your order,
consult the ordersummary.html, located in your SAS Software Depot
at /install_doc/<order number>/ordersummary.html.
To determine if you are upgrading an existing SAS 9.2 installation,
select the Help > About box in an open SAS session.
- A full version of SAS 9.2 software is listed as SAS 9.2 TS1M0.
- Windows users can use their software order to upgrade the current
SAS 9.2 installation.
Note: It is important to backup a current deployment before you
install your new SAS software order.
- Upgrade deployments on hosts other than Windows require a SAS
Home location that does not already contain SAS 9.2 TS1M0.
The SAS Deployment Wizard will not upgrade an existing SAS 9.2
TS1M0 installation.
Insert your media into your DVD drive to
start the SAS Deployment Wizard.
- The media for Windows users should autoplay. If it does not,
double-click the setup.exe at the root of your DVD to start the SAS
Deployment Wizard.
- UNIX users should mount their DVD with the appropriate mount
command and execute setup.sh at the root of the DVD.
Note: If you launch the SAS Deployment Wizard from an order that
spans media, do not use a shell in the removable media’s file
system when you launch setup.sh. In addition, the SAS
Deployment Wizard should not be invoked via the File Manager.
Either of these methods for launching the SAS Deployment
Wizard will create a Device busy condition, which prevents disk
swapping later in the deployment process.
- z/OS users must build the SAS Software Depot on a drive that the
z/OS system can access. To build the SAS Software Depot, use
setup.sh (UNIX) or setup.exe (Windows).
Afterwards, z/OS users who have Java installed on their system should
execute setup.rexx at the root of the SAS Software Depot to start
the SAS Deployment Wizard. z/OS users who do not have Java should
execute basicins.rexx instead. Instructions for running this
command are available from
Select the language that you want
to use for the installation.
Use the dialogs to install and
configure your software.
- The SAS Deployment Wizard automatically creates a SAS Software
Depot, which contains everything you need to install your software
order. After the SAS Software Depot is created, you should install
from it.
- Click the Help button for more information about the choices available
in each dialog.
- For more detailed information, please see the SAS Deployment Wizard
User’s Guide, available from Install Center,
There may be additional configuration steps
required for your software.
