The fix for SAS Note 65929: A grid-enabled sign-on to SAS© 9.4M6 (TS1M6) fails with errors, including "Remote signon … canceled", creates a new environment variable, TCPBINDADDR.
This fix needs to be applied to the client host where the Grid Enabled SIGNON is being submitted.

  1. In Platform LSF grids, LSF copies the client environment vars to the execution host. The TCPBINDADDR environment variable needs to be unset in the Grid Server configuration to prevent the execution host trying to bind its listening ports to the client IP value.

    Add the following to the grid usermods file:

    For a Windows grid, the change goes into
    set "TCPBINDADDR="

    For a Linux grid, the change goes into
  2. Get the IP address of your machine.

  3. Specify this IP address in the TCPBINDADDR environment variable.
    This can be done in one of several ways.

    1. At SAS startup.
      - Add the following line to the sasv9.cfg file, filling in with actual IP address:

         -set TCPBINDADDR <IP address of client that is doing the SIGNON>

    2. Using Windows commands to SET the environment variable.

    3. As an options statement in your SAS code:
      options set=TCPBINDADDR "<IP address of client that is doing the SIGNON>";
      *Note: Do not use this method in a nested SIGNON.
         SIGNOFF all existing connections before setting TCPBINDADDR to a new value in the options set statement.

  4. You may verify the TCPBINDADDR is set by doing in the SAS session:
    %put %sysget(TCPBINDADDR);

This completes the installation of hot fix D9T085 on 64-bit Enabled AIX.
