What is the SAS Security Administration Module? I've Googled and searched support.sas.com. Not a lick of documentation on this module (at least that I can find).
Second, should I be concerned if it doesn't install correctly? What would be the results if it's not installed correctly?
The mid-tier install (using my plan file) fails with this error:
Property "secadminevm.dependson.admappmid.fqid" has not been set
If I install without selecting this module, then install only this module a second time, it installs successfully. Is it possible the plan file has the order of component installation wrong?
I realize some of this is "contact Tech Support". But, if you can at least tell me what the module *is*, that would be helpful. Even more helpful would be a pointer to some documentation.
Please post your question as a self-contained data step in the form of "have" (source) and "want" (desired results). I won't contribute to your post if I can't cut-and-paste your syntactically correct code into SAS.
You experienced a known problem that exists in software deployment plans that are generated before August 2014. The workaround is to generate a new plan file, or use a plan file that was created since that time. The SAS Security Administration Module is an internal component that is used by other applications, such as SAS Environment Manager.
I received this error today. My environment had SAS VA 6.3 with SAS 9.4_M1 and I updated/upgraded to SAS VA 7.2 wit SAS 9.4_M2 last month. My environment had Lev1, Lev2 and Lev3. I had to reconfigure my Lev2 due to some problems and I used the original plan file that was used for VA 6.3 installation.
If your redeployment was at 7.2 you need to get and use a 7.2 plan file. It is a shortcoming of the SAS Deployment Wizard that it does/can not check the version of every product being installed against the plan, but instead assumes the order being used is the same one used to produce the plan file.
