Migration of SAS 9.3 from Linux Rhel 5 to Linux Rhel 6

Hi SAS Community,

I am a newbie here and would like to ask the SAS Technical Architects and SAS Technical support.

What would be the implications for this example scenario: we’ve already established the SAS9.3 in Linux Rhel 5 and then suddenly the client decided to upgrade to Linux Rhel 6 0S version. Things to consider are below:


  • Feasibility of the OS upgrade prior/after go-live? 
  • Needed effort and high level costs?
  • Time estimation?

Based on what I've read on the Redhat documentation, they strongly recommends fresh installations when upgrading from one major version to another. Technically, it's doable but it’s probably something someone can successfully accomplish, but the risk factor (IMO) is very high.

Thanks in advance to all!

Regards,

Champ
