Migrate SAS EM 6.2 projects in SAS 9.2 AIX to SAS 9.4 Linux

Hi All,

 

We are planning to migrate SAS EM 6.2 projects created under SAS 9.2 with AIX platform to EM 14.2 with SAS 9.4 under Linux platform.

 

Could you please let e know the possible way to perform this migration.

 

Regards,

Abhijit

Hi Abhijit,

 

Migration of E-Miner project is not straight forward where we can export/import or create package. We need to follow different approach using macro code. please find below link for the same and follow the instructions.

Thanks for the reply Mahesh!!

 

Using the below macro, we can only migrate on eproject at a time. But in our scenario, we have a lot of EMiner projects and need to do a bulk migrate.

 

%EM_MigrateProject(Action=PREPARE ,RootPath=<the location and name of the project which needs to be migrated> );

 

Any thoughts?

Abhijit

Hello @abhijit_das,

 

if the re-installation of the new environment is still an option, I would recommend you to:

 

- extract the metadata from the old environment with SMU

 

- install the new environment, and providing the SMU package

 

I think this should make your life much easier.

 

If the re-installation of the environment is not an option, probably you would need to migrate EM projects manually or semi-automated.

Have you read this SAS note already? http://support.sas.com/kb/32/904.html

Thanks Juan!!

 

After doing some more research, came to know that SMU can only be used while migrating in between same operating system or same bit. If this is true then I may have to do the promotion.

I don't think there is much difference between AIX an Linux, on most cases/scenarios, although you might want to check with SAS Technical Support this point.

 

Are you also migrating from 32 to 64 bit?

No Juan. It's 64 to 64 bit.

Then, you probably won't need any conversion/migration of the data.

 

I would give it a chanceto SMU, and, just to be sure, I would align with SAS Technical Support, to ensure that you can SMU from AIX to Linux.

 

My current expectation is that, some config files and scripts (as the usermods) you will need to change the header from ksh to bash, but I would not expect much more impact than that.
