What is the SAS Security Administration Module?  I've Googled and searched  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.

Thanks and regards,

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.
