Hi All,

Use a Windows SSH client like WinSCP. Make sure that the transfer is set to "binary" for all files.

After the copy, log on to the Linux server with the SAS installation user and run

chmod -R u+x /sas_depot

(sas_depot is the directory where you copied the depot)

as a lot of the files need execute permission to work.

Then you can proceed with

cd /sas_depot
./setup.sh

You may want to ask your IT department about setting up a Network File System (NFS)  that is accessible from your Windows machine and the target Linux server/s where you will be installing SAS. That same NFS location can be made accessible to all SAS tiers (if you have more than one) or even to different deployments like DEV/TST/PRD.

I always liked the MobaXTerm's local session. There is an option to start local terminal to run linux like commands on windows system. I think in the backend it uses Cygwin. You can start this session and run the scp from laptop to linux machine. Add "&" to the end to run it in background just like linux machine.
