Before applying this hot fix, follow the instructions in SAS Note 35968 to generate a SAS Deployment Registry report, then verify that the appropriate product releases are installed on your system. The release number information in the Registry report should match the 'member' release number information provided above for the software components installed on each machine in your deployment.
The hot fix downloaded, S48012pt.zip, includes the updates required for all components listed above on all applicable operating systems. To apply this hot fix on multiple machines, you can either save S48012pt.zip on each machine or save it in a network location that is accessible to all machines.
Do NOT extract the contents of S48012pt.zip. The hot fix installation process will extract the contents as needed.
This hot fix requires that your software must already be configured prior to installation. If no configuration directory exists at the time of installation, security updates built into this hot fix will not be completed, leaving your software in a vulnerable state.
If you are running on one of the above mentioned operating systems, you will need to download and install updated VC++ libraries from Microsoft.
Please visit https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=52685 to obtain these libraries.
Failure to do so will result in SAS Web Server being unable to restart after applying this hot fix.
The hot fix will be applied using the SAS Deployment Manager. By default, the SAS Deployment Manager 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 S48012pt.zip, follow the instructions for applying hot fixes in the SAS Deployment Wizard and SAS Deployment Manager 9.4: User's Guide.
Please review the CONFIGURATION Important Note above concerning proper selection of the "Configure SAS Hot Fix" option in the SAS Deployment Manager.
The hot fix installation process generates the log file
<!SASHOME>/InstallMisc/InstallLogs/IT_date-and-time-stamp.logfor 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).
IMPORTANT NOTE Regarding SSL/TLS:
If your SAS Web Server is configured for SSL/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.
