configuration clarification

Hi Friends,

Hope you doing great,


I installed sas 9.3 in Linux server, When I'm installing i have selected 'configuration' option...And installed successfully, with all 'green' symbol and i have tested all the applications and i have validated based on the instructions.html file.

Is that done or should i have to 'configuration' again with using 'deployment' tool ?

Many Thanks,

Suman

Re: configuration clarification

You do not need to run the configuration as a separate step.  It works along with the install.  It can be beneficial to separate them if you want separate installation and configuration response files for review after installation.  There is no reason to go back through the configuration again.  If you've tested successfully then the install was configured.

Dominic, SAS is rather expensive (licenses etc) at the BI/DI parts not something for being used at home privately for fun.

In the more serious approach you have to make a good job of it. There is lot of public info on that, I will give some:.

- Standard of Good Practice - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 

- CategorySmiley Tonguerinciple - OWASP

- Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst - ISTQB® International Software Testing Qualifications Board

- Information Technology Infrastructure Library - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  (ITIL)

There is al lot more of it, think off NIST  guidelines COBIT SOX-404 etc.

It some asthonishing (predicting the failures) but not surprising (the cheaper argument) that that many of those basics are often missing.

An installation should be stable and verified not being changed intended/unitended.

A configuration is exposed to be changen tested validated and planned to operations.

By this difference in that requirement  it makes a lot of sense tho have them segregated.
