I don't understand the context of your question but reading the documentation is a good starting point:

Hiring staff to do SAS installs these days is increasingly rare as external specialist installers are now more commonly used.

If you know the answer but are unsure of how to phrase it, feel free to post what you have and we can help critique your answer. 

Otherwise, if you're planning to do a SAS installation interview and don't already know the answer to the question then you're misrepresenting yourself.

High level installation steps for a single server:

  1. Order Software Smiley Happy
  2. Download SAS Software Depot
  3. Make sure OS updates are in place
  4. Confirm & update OS to meet SAS System Requirements (SAS System Requirements)
  5. Obtain SAS Plan file
  6. Perform steps in SAS Pre-Installation Checklist (Add OS users, groups, check ports, etc.  See checklist file)
  7. Run the SAS Deployment Wizard to install and configure SAS
  8. Perform post installation tasks
  9. Validate & test the installation

The word interview indicates that the OP is preparing for some kind of position, please clarify the background to your inquiry.
A bit odd to learn 9.3 rather 9.4 deployment. Install/configuration is a quite limited task.

Hi  Krisraa,

 

Please find the Install and config guide for SAS 9.3 to help your better understand the process and answer it in your own way. It also depends on what level of expertise you have on the subject. I hope this helps.
