Has anyone tried  upgrading Redhat from 7 to Redhat 8 in-place with Viya 3.5 installed?  The easiest is to do in-place but will the Viya software/SAS run afterwards?


Thanks in advance for all comments.

I suggest you ask Tech Support for an official answer. In my experience OS upgrades in place are not recommended and there would be no guarantee SAS would still work.

Hello @ANLYNG 
As per SAS documentation that is not possible. ( )

" SAS Viya can only be upgraded on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.x following a new deployment on that operating system. You cannot upgrade the operating system to the newer version of Linux without a full redeployment of SAS Viya."

Better contact SAS Tech Support they will let you know if there are changes to this or if there are work arounds.
