SAS License Renewal

Hi all,

 

one of our administrator renewed the SAS license using SAS DM and updated the SID file in metadata. when I ran the proc setinit; run; I see the new expiration dates. but when I view metadata setinit details in SAS SMC it is not updated with new expiration dates. I tried by restarting the server and refreshing the application server also but it is not fixed.  I believed they didn't followed the correct process. Any suggestions why it is not updated. 

Is there anything I can check?

 

- Windows server ; single machine environment

- office analytics

 

Thanks

V

Typically, yes. The process changed a bit in 9.4 (TS1M3) but I still think you'd have that log.

 

Usually if proc setinit shows one thing, and metadata show another it means part D got missed from http://support.sas.com/documentation/installcenter/en/ikwinplannedri/66607/PDF/default/setinit_plann...

Re: SAS License Renewal

Should be a log in the c:\sas\config\Lev1\Logs\Configure directory named   (Adjust path as appropriate) 

cfgwizard_loadSetinitintoMetadata followed by a date stamp.

 

With more details - if no such file exists it sounds like a step was missed.

Hi @dpage,

 

There is no log - cfgwizard_loadSetinitintoMetadata

that means they did not updated the SID file in metadata?

 

Thanks,

Yes. I believe they skipped the step D. I will updated it.
