I am having a problem with new deployment of SAS 9.4 in an enterprise solution.
I received the SAS software depot from one internal colleague who used the SAS Download Manager and I don`t know what options he checked there (so it`s a black box for now - he is out of office). When I am going through the Deployment Wizard the option of selecting a plan is skipped (that window is not even in the wizard) it goes directly to the selection of products. So I can only install as a local full installation.
Like it is normal in an enterprise I want to install it according to a plan (at least a standard one) with metadata and all the servers in one place and the clients in another place. Without being able to chose a plan I can`t do that and it doesn't install any server locally nor being able to configure anything like metadata server, app server, object spawner etc.
The order e-mail clearly specifies that it is a planned installation.
Do you think that something might have been wrongly chosen in the download manager?
Or do you think that it is something wrong with the order received by e-mail?
The SAS Software Depot includes documentation on what has been downloaded. Check through the folders and view any files that describe the contents. Also a plan file folder should be present, if a planned install is required, called plan_files with should contain a file called plan.xml. If there isn't a plan included in the deployment then the download is obviously wrong.
Check out this link for understanding SAS Software Depots:
how are you launching the SDW? Any command line parameters?
Before you launch it next time, I would go you your OS profile and I would delete (or backup/rename) the SASDeploymentWizard folder. It might be the case that is storing/caching some option from the past.
Hi, thanks everyone for the replies. I found out Friday that the download was made wrong. When the download was made, the depot was partitioned and the "by product" option was selected. If you select this then you can't do a planed instalation no more (thereis also a note in the wizard when you download that says this).
So after that all went smooth and I finshed the install and config successfully.
Thank you all for thre support!
