SAS Web Server configuration on 2 machines (SAS9.4M4)

Hi,

I would like to configure my SAS Architecture like this :

 

- Machine 1 : All products (except SAS Web Server)

- Machine 2 : SAS Web Server

 

If I configure the machine 1 first, the internal connection of Web App in SAS Management Console are set to :

- host : machine 1

- port : 8080

 

Then, I configure the machine 2 with the Web Server.

 

The problem is "Internal connexion" in SAS Management Console is not updated, so I have to update it manually.

 

Is it possible in my plan deployment that informations of "Internal connexion" are set automatically ?

Do I have to respect a particular order in my deployment.

For example :

- Machine 1 : Meta+Compute

- Machine 2 : SAS Web Server

- Machine 3 : SAS Middle-Tier

 

And, could I initiate a plan like this ?

 

In attachment, my install plan.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Best regards,

Gaetan

Correct -

 

https://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/biig/69172/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n05002intelplatform0...

SAS(R) 9.4 Intelligence Platform: Installation and Configuration Guide says:

"4.If your deployment plan separates SAS Web Server from SAS Web Application Server, install SAS Web Server first."

(In the 'Install Order Rules for Multiple Machine Deployments' section of the 'Installing and Configuring your SAS Software' chapter )

 

similar story if you wanted to do

Machine 1: Meta & Web

Machine 2: Compute

 

You'd make a plan with 3 machines

Machine 1: Meta

Machine 2: Compute

Machine 3: Web

 

Configure them in order, but when configuring machine '3' you would go back to machine 1, and configure it in a new configuration directory, (C:\sas\WebConfig separate from C:\sas\MetaConfig)

Sorry, I made a mistake.

- Machine 2 : SAS Web Server

- Machine 1 : SAS Middle-Tier

Please, just a supplementary question :

 

During the Middle-Tier configuration (third step), I have to answer this question :

 

The screen is "SAS Web Infrastructure Platform Dependencies".

 

Do I have to choose the Web Application Server configured on the Web Server Machine, or the Web Application Server who will be configure on the Mid-Tier Server ?

 

In attachment, the print screen

Gaetan

The Mid-Tier server. However, if the only thing you created on the web server machine was a web server, it shouldn't be appearing in this list, I'd be worried some additional things were configured on the web server tier that you didn't intend.

Yes, I'm agree with you.

But the plan comes from the SAS Technical Support and they were categorical :

- When you select Web Server only one a machine, supplementary WebApp components are mandatory.

For information, my deployment failed this week-end during the step 3 : config WebApp
