How to upgrade SAS 9.4 form M3 to M4

Hi Everyone,

 

We are planning to upgrade our SAS system from M3 to M4. Could anyone please let us know the complete procedure and all the detail information?.

 

We are using Linux 64-bit for our SAS system and we have complete knowledge about our infrastructure, but we need to know how to proceed with the upgrade,.

 

Thanks

- stop all SAS services and processes. This includes the SAS-supplied web and web application (tomcat) servers

- run setup.sh as the SAS install user from the SAS depot, select install software, and follow the prompts from there (the SDW recognizes it has newer software and proceeds automatically)

- if everything works as it should, the Deployment Manager should have started all your services when it finishes.

The SAS Guide to Software Updates should provide most of the information you need:
