I was looking to scan the SAS objects through BILineage Plug-in of SAS Management Console 9.3, I logged in through sasadm@saspw user but I couldn’t find the BILineage Plug-in under ‘Environment Management’ tree. After doing analysis I found that 2 more plug-ins (Configuration Manager and Deployment Tester) are missing from ‘Application Management’ tree.
We are using SAS Software since 2012 and I had done same activity last year but now BI Lineage plug-in is missing form that tree. We had Maintenance activity in last month, due to this, we had shutdown all the servers (SAS & database) but I am not sure whether BI lineage plug-in was there at that time, I just checked yesterday and got to know that plug-in is missing. No Configuration changes have been done on any server since last 2 years so what will be the exact reason? &how I can resolve this issue without restoring it from the backup?
I checked SMC by running /sasmeta/SASHome/SASManagementConsole/9.3/sasmc on Server through GUI, BI lineage Plug-in was there, so it might be some file got corrupted on client machine. As you suggested, I re-installed the SMC on client machine and it gets resolved.
Thank You for your reply!!!
