    Where <SASHome> is the file location where your SAS Software is installed on a machine.

    Note that jar file naming conforms to the following pattern in these directories: <Jar-Name>-<Version-Number>_<Release>.jar

    Examine the files with a common "spring-web" name and only keep the one file with the greatest <Version-Number> value. Using the <Version-Number> is necessary because there are instances when the file creation and modification dates may not differ across jar files.

    1. Stop the SAS Environment Manager service as well as all instances of SAS WebAppServer (tcServer)
    2. Run the SAS Deployment Manager and choose 'Remove Existing Configuration'
    3. Select only 'Job Mntr Hyperic Plugin/SAS Job Monitor Administration' and continue until you have unconfigured the product.
    4. Exit the SAS Deployment Manager when completed.

    Where <Config> is the file location where you SAS Software configuration exists.

    <Config>/Web/SASEnvironmentManager/server-5.8.0-EE/hq-engine/hq-server/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/hq-plugins/ jobmonitor-plugin.jar
    Where <Config> is the file location where you SAS Software configuration exists.

  5. Reconfigure the SAS Job Monitor Administration product
    1. Run the SAS Deployment Wizard and choose to 'Configure SAS Software'

    3. Complete the configuration and exit the SAS Deployment Wizard.
