SAS Embedded Processes - Hadoop - mixed maintenance release version numbers

Has anyone tried applying a different version of the SAS Embedded Process compared to their 'standard' installation version number. i.e. SAS 9.4 M2 everywhere except for the Embedded Process on Hadoop which could be SAS 9.4 M3/4?

 

Also, does anyone know what changes have been made between the M3 SAS EP and the M4 EP. What would be the benefit of using a M3 EP vs a M4 EP be? Why not just use the M4 version of the EP, as it's the most current?

 

I'm aware there may be a maintenance / support issue, and conversations are taking place re this. The above set up would only be for a couple of months until a full M4 upgrade takes place for all SAS components. 

 

It's more the technical compatilibily issues I'm looking for advice / help with.

 

thanks

Hi,

 

some of the new features are described here
http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/indbag/69749/HTML/default/viewer.htm#indbagwhatsnew94.ht...

 

As for version "mixing". I would strongly encourage not to do that. Even if it might work, mixing maintenance releases

is not supported!

 

Thanks

Anja
