      where <SASHome location> is the full path to SASHome

    2. Examine activemq_jarfix_m0-sax<datetimestamp>.log located in the directory where the tool was executed. The log will contain the configuration directories the tool found specified with the text (SASCONFIG: ). If you have an installation where there are multiple configuration directories and one or more are missing from the log, re-execute the activemq_jarfix_m0-sax tool and specify both SASHome and the SAS Configuration directory.

      For example: <SASHome location> <SAS Configuration location>
      Note: The tool can safely be run multiple times.

    3. Any errors that are found will be written to the error log located in the same directory that the code is executed from.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If your SAS Web Server is configured for TLS, you will need to install the latest Java 7 Update. Please visit the Updates for Java 7 download page for the latest available updates.

Upgrade-in-place installations or update existing configuration in SAS Deployment Manager:

Due to changes in the xml files during upgrade-in-place scenarios, the SAS Deployment Manager will show a failure during the upgrade of existing configuration for SAS Web Application Server after this hot fix has been applied. In a clustered configuration, this failure could happen on the primary machine and all cluster nodes. When this occurs, leave the SAS Deployment Manager running and use a separate session to make the following change:

  1. For SASServer1, navigate to <SASConfig>/LevX/Web/WebAppServer/SASServer1_?/conf/Catalina/localhost/

    NOTE: The '?' in SASServer1_? can be an integer starting from 1 in a configuration with vertical cluster nodes. If you have custom server names, the server instance names should end with 1_?.

  2. Edit the SASWorkflowServices.xml file as follows:

    <ResourceLink global="sas/jms/QueueConnectionFactory" name="jms/QueueConnectionFactory" type="org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQConnectionFactory"/>


    <ResourceLink global="sas/jms/QueueConnectionFactory" name="jms/QueueConnectionFactory" type="javax.jms.ConnectionFactory"/>

  3. Once this change has been made, return to the SDM and click the retry button. This should allow the SDM to complete the upgrade configuration task.

This completes the installation of hot fix P38005 on Solaris for x64.
