We have SAS 9.4 M3 Installed on Linux server Red Hat 4.8.5-39.The person who installed has left the organization, I don't have the sas installer accout password with me. I need to maintain the server and renew license.
Is there any way to get the password?
What if we reset the password, does it impact any sevrices?
@SatishPala - I suggest you track your problem to SAS Tech Support as you will need version-specific advice on this. The SAS installer account is also an OS account so for obvious reasons retrieving the password would be extremely difficult if not impossible. You will probably have to investigate your SAS installation to find out where this account has been used or is still being used.
Most of the cases, SAS installer account is OS account usually to hold the sas binaries and configuration files. You can change the password for this account and it won't impact your platform.
In-case your site had some specific requirements to add this user to metadata (which is never recommended, however I have seen some sites doing that) you will have to update the password for this user using SMC.
