Hot Fix H33002 must be installed on each machine where the updated components of the product, listed above, are installed. During the installation process you may see references to all operating systems for which updates are provided in the hot fix. The installation process will determine the operating system and which component(s) of SAS IT Resource Management 3.3 require updating on the machine. See SAS Note 44810 for more details.

The hot fix will be applied using the SAS Deployment Manager (SDM). By default, the SDM will search in the <SASHOME>/InstallMisc/HotFixes/New directory for hot fixes to be applied, but will also prompt for a location if you have downloaded hot fixes to a different directory.

After downloading, follow the instructions for installing hot fixes in the SAS Deployment Wizard/SAS Deployment Manager 9.3: User's Guide.

The hot fix installation process generates the log file

for example, IT_2011-10-31-13.18.21.log. Each attempt to apply a hot fix results in the creation of a new log file giving detailed information regarding the installation process.

Postexec log files are created after the installation is completed and identifies the files that were added, backed up, changed and removed. These log files include the 'member' hot fix id in the name of the file and are also written to the <!SASHOME>/InstallMisc/InstallLogs directory. There is one postexec log for each 'member' hot fix applied (member hot fixes are listed at the top of these instructions).

Update SAS IT Resource Management Metadata

In order for this step to execute correctly, the Metadata Server must be running. Please start your Metadata Server now.

You should be logged into the machine hosting your SAS IT Resource Management SAS Application Server using the same userid that was used for both your original and hot fix installations.

Ensure that an X11 DISPLAY variable has been properly set and exported. Also inspect the script file located

<SAS Configuration Directory>/Level
to confirm whether a JDK_HOME environment variable is being defined. If you do not see a line specifying "JDK_HOME=" then you need to set the JDK_HOME variable from the command line prior to invoking the script specified below. The setting should be to an installed, compatible JDK, and should not include the "/bin" portion of the path.

Change directory to the installation location of the SAS IT Resource Management Data Tier component. This should be


The script to update the SAS IT Resource Management metadata is named and it requires two positional parameters to be passed to it. The first is the password for the SAS administrative user id. The second is the SAS Configuration Directory path including the Level subdirectory. The syntax for invoking this script is: <metaPass> <SASConfigDir>
For example, AdminAdmin1 /install/ITRM33/Lev1
Note: if your configuration directory path contains a space (embedded blank) you must enclose the entire path in double quotes ("path with blanks").

During the execution of this script you should see messages similar to the following output to your shell:

Output from this script is redirected to the log file: itrmhotfix.log

Buildfile: /install/SAS/SASITResourceManagementDataTier/3.3/Config/itrmhotfix.xml has completed.
and the output from this task will be written to the itrmhotfix.log file. This log file is located in the same directory that the script was invoked from.

After successful execution the final lines of this log file will be similar to:

Total time: 45 seconds
Note: If you do not see the BUILD SUCCESSFUL message you should contact SAS Technical Support.

This completes the installation of hot fix H33002 on z/OS.
