Thanks @maheshtalla,


I have a Doubt, when I see the message of issue, I have to press Yes, No or Retry?

Hi David,
It depends on what you decide, If you want to continue with further config steps you can press yes/yes to all. It not good to proceed since next steps fails obviously as it has dependencies. Option "No" will not proceed further and it exits. If you press "retry" it will try may be you can try it some times retry should work.

Also there are lot of factors to be consider like pre-req on firewall, ulimit etc as discussed in my thread

Hello @DavidGQ,


I found this before. The problem usually comes when there is a problem of configuration in one of the basic components on SASServer1_1, which basically contains the web components of Web Infrastructure Platform (WIP). Thos problem may come from SASLogin, SASContentServer, WIP Services...


I expect that most probably, there migh be something wrong in the pre-requisites, or your response file (configuration), or you missed post-configuration steps from the hotfixes documents , therefore you might need to repeat the installation from scratch or, at least, from the installation of the binaries.


I would check your response file (if you have created it, something I always recommend, highly) and your logs, but most importantly, I would open a track with SAS Technical Support.

You had a problem with starting SASServer11_1:


[appserverTarget] 2017-09-02 21:06:01,451 [main] ERROR - Webapp with

SASModelManagerJavaServices context failed to start


I would like to review these files from /sas/sasconf/Lev1/Web/WebAppServer/SASServer11_1/logs


  • catalina.out
  • gemfire.log
  • server.log

Hi @ghalbi, what kind of installation do you have?


In my case I had have a Standalone installation, for this problem I was review the all Ports in use with Netstat command and deactivated Ipv6 and then I was restarted de for one and Retry the configuration. With that my probleme was solved.

I succeded to solve the problem and bypass the error in step 12.  Here's what I did:
When configuring Web server and when the stage 12 is running , I have generated manually the scripts for launching the services sas (sas.servers, sas.servers.mid, sas.servers.pre) by launching the script " ".

Step 12 has passed and the installation has ended successfully. I am finalizing the post-installation and it seems to work.

I don't have a logical explanation of this until now.
