IMPORTANT NOTES

  1. Files delivered in this hot fix will be backed up during the installation process. However, it is good general practice to back up your system before applying updates to software.

  2. You must have Administrator Privileges on your CLIENT or SERVER machine.

  3. All currently active SAS sessions, daemons, spawners and servers must be terminated before applying this hot fix.

  4. This hot fix should be installed using the same userid who performed the initial software installation.


INSTALLATION

Hot Fix K34005 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 Decision Services 5.5_M1 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 K34005pt.zip, follow the instructions for applying hot fixes in the SAS Deployment Wizard and SAS Deployment Manager 9.3: User's Guide.


The hot fix installation process generates the log file

<!SASHOME>\InstallMisc\InstallLogs\IT_date-and-time-stamp.log
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).


The content of this hot fix is listed in the hot fix manifest.

Note that these instructions provide example filenames and directory names based on a Windows deployment. If your deployment is to a different operating system please make the appropriate adjustments.

There are nine sas files that are included in this Hotfix. They will need to be modified and reloaded to the Federation Server database. Instructions for modifying these sas files are as follows.

  1. Make a backup of all the files located in <CONFIGDIR>\Lev1\Applications\SASDecisionServicesServerConfig5.5\SASCode

  2. Copy the following files from <SASHOME>\SASDecisionServicesServerConfiguration\5.5\Configurable\SASCode to <CONFIGDIR>\Lev1\Applications \SASDecisionServicesServerConfig5.5\SASCode
    tap_array.sas.orig
    tap_table.sas.orig
    tap_tokenizer.sas.orig
    tap_datatype.sas.orig
    tap_datetime.sas.orig
    tap_logger.sas.orig
    tap_hash.sas.orig
    loadutilpackages.sas.orig
    droputilpackages.sas.orig
    
  3. Modify these files replacing all instances of the connection string token with values that match your configuration.
    Ex:  proc ds2 nolibs noprompt="@sas.activity.connection.string@";
    Becomes:  proc ds2 nolibs noprompt="driver=remts;server=<Federation Server hostname>;port=21032;protocol=bridge;uid=fedsrv;pwd=ENTER FEDERATION
     SERVER ADMIN PASSWORD;conopts=(DSN=BASE_DSN)";
    

    To simplify this step, copy the proc ds2 statement from the .sas files of the same name to the .sas.orig file. Be sure to include the actual Federation Server Admin password in the connection string.

  4. Modify the loadutilpackages.sas.orig file, replacing all instances of the sas code token with the correct path to the sas code.
    Ex:  %include "@sas.util.sas.code@tap_logger.sas";
    Becomes: %include
    "<CONFIGDIR>\Lev1\Applications\SASDecisionServicesServerConfig5.5\SASCode\tap_logger.sas";
    
  5. Delete the *.sas file that will be replaced by the *.sas.orig file.

  6. Rename the *sas.orig file to be <filename>.sas

The loadutilpackage.sas program will load all the sas files in the <CONFIGDIR>\Lev1\Applications\SASDecisionServicesServerConfig5.5\SASCode directory. Be sure all the files to be loaded contain the Federation Server Admin password.

From SAS Display Manager, execute <CONFIGDIR>\Lev1\Applications\SASDecisionServicesServerConfig5.5\SASCode\loadutilpackages.sas.


This completes the installation of hot fix K34005 on Windows for x64.
