SAS installation on z/os getting stopped with the return code 255

Dear team,

 

I have transferred the esdclient__94488__mvs__xx__web__1.zos on zos and trying to download the SAS order, but after some time at specific point of time I am getting the 'The download encountered an error'. After cancelling the operation I gets the Exit code 255. We have increased the space enough to accomodate the 20.5 GB of software data. Not sure why installation is getting stopped in between ? May be access issue to my ID or some other thing. File is also attached for your reference. Please let me know if anyone has encountered the same issues earlier.

 

I am also reporting the error to SAS institute.

Thanks

I suggest you keep trying to download, but try to do it outside business hours when you will get better and perhaps more reliable performance. I find downloading directly to a PC hard drive works best, then the depot can be copied from there to where ever you want.
