Office Analytic Server 6.1 deployment for workstation access

The SAS server environment is SAS9.4_M1 and clients are using Enterprise Guide 6.1 with workstation installed license.  We are going to start using Office Analytic Server and use the enterprise licensing for the clients to be licensed for Enterprise Guide 6.1. 

I would like to know what program is needed on the client workstations, to be able to access the Office Analytic Server? 

 

Thanks

I'm wanting to know what specific program must be installed on the client's workstation besides Enterprise Guide to have access to the Office Analytic Server.  For example, SAS Office Analytics Clients software.

 

Thanks

Enterprise Guide should be the only product required to be installed on the client workstation.  You will need to specify the connection information in order to talk to the corresponding Metadata Server of your Office Analytic Server environment.

Re: Office Analytic Server 6.1 deployment for workstation access

Hello and thanks for the message. We have not installed the Office Analytic Server yet within our SAS9.4_M1 environment. The Office Analytic Server will become our new EBI server. Currently, our EG users have the program installed on their workstations with a license. But this new year, we will be having the client EG users using the Office Analytic Server for enterprise license. My concern is what programs on the client workstations must be installed to have access to the Office Analytic Server.

When you do a client install of Office Analytics SAS installs the necessary client-side software. In addition you may include SAS Management Console and the SAS-Add in to MS Office depending on your requirements.

If you use plan file for Office Analytics the deployment wizard will tell what components that will be installed.
