Hi all,

I'm trying to install SAS 9.4 on HP-UX. On the same machine SAS 9.2 is intalled (this version remain on it). As per SAS 9.4 System Requiriment's documents, we need HP-UX 11i version 3 (11.31) operating system, update 9 and later, and Atomic APIs product B.11.31.0803.01.


On server we have B.11.31.1009.353a. After we installed the required Atomic APIs version, and error appear on SAS installation saying the requirement is B.11.31.1109.367a.


There are any other requirements that we need to verify? Or if we install the hotfix B.11.31.1109.367a, we'll capable to complete successfully the installation?

Hello @MariaD,


it will depend on the SAS solution you are installing.


For SAS Foundation (on every SAS Solution) :

For other SAS solutions you can search here: or in google if you type SAS System Requirements 9.4 "your_SAS_solution" on the google search text box. On every document, you will find the specifics for HP-UX.


Hope it helps.


Best regards,

Thanks Juan. Yes, I verified that document before, but I said on my original post, only mention "HP-UX 11i version 3 (11.31) operating system, update 9" and "Atomic APIs". It does not have any details about necessary HP-UX hotfixs.


There is any other documentation with these details?

Pleasure, @MariaD.


Did you have the chance to read the first document I have sent you, which probably is the same you have already read?



SAS 9.4 Foundation is supported on the HP-UX 11i version 3 (11.31) operating system, update 9 and
Your operating system should have the PHKL_41967 - 11.31 fs select cumulative patch or later.
In addition, if you are using HP-UX 11.31, the Atomic APIs product B.11.31.0803.01 is required. This
software package is available from the HP website at
Note: The patch level listed was correct at the time this document was published. However, patches that are
required for HP-UX for the Itanium Processor Family Architecture are subject to unexpected change.
To verify that you have the latest patch requirements, go to the Install Center website
( ) to find the most recent updates to this System
Requirements document

 Additionally to this, you will need to search for the requirements for every SAS component/Solution you will install.


We can help you to search for them if it is what you need. But then we will need to know the SAS Solution and SAs products you have on the license.

Thanks Juan. So, you know if B.11.31.1109.367a includes PHKL_41967? Or is necessary to install PHKL_41967 too?


The products will be install are:

- Base, Stat, Ets, Connect, Miner, IT (to use SAS EG), PCFF, Access to Oracle and Access to SQL.

Hi @JuanS_OCS,


After we installed the patch, a new error appears. Now, SAS says that version B.11.31.1109.367a is installed but can't continue because needs version B.11.31.1109.367a (see error attached). Exactly the same!


Do you know what is going on?

If you are absolutely sure that you have installed all the packages that required for SAS installation, launch the script with the -skiposlevelcheck option.

Hi @alexal,


I ran all the tests that I sent you. Do you remember or suggest any other verification that I can execute before install with "-skiposlevelcheck" option?

You checked everything. If you want to investigate a problem further, I would suggest opening a technical support track. Send to me the number, if you decide to do so.
