Downloading and setting up of SAS University Edition

I have  downloaded SAS University Edition.

I have added SAS University Edition to VisualBox  but I get the message: Unable to boot please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU when I launch SAS University Edition.

 

I have tried the following:

 

  1. I have enabled virtualization in the bios
  2. I have consulted Google and tried their solutions 
  3. One solution is to select the checkbox in Settings>System>Processor for enable PAE/NX
  4. the other solution is  to move the Base Memory slider Settings>System>Motherboard 

I had a look at the guest operating system in the VirtualBox  Manager and see that it is ubuntu( 32bit). Should it not be 64 bit?  

 

Also what went wrong and how to correct it?

Hi @Elainej17

 

It should be 64bit.

Did you have a look at Installation Note 53263 (When you start SAS® University Edition, an error might occur stating that this kernel requires an x86-64 CPU) ?

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers,
Damo

Start over from scratch and follow the instructions exactly. 


You shouldn't change any settings in the Virtual Machine. 

If you still receive errors please post snapshots of the set up. 

 

I'm also assuming you're on Windows. If you're on a Mac please see this forum for a message from @RandyMullis regarding using SAS UE on Macs, a recent update changed some default security settings that are causing issues.

Hi, @Elainej17. As @Reeza indicated, you should not change any settings after you import the virtual machine (OVA file). If the settings are showing Ubuntu, then something isn't right. 

 

I agree that you should delete the VM you have, re-import, try to start it, and then report back *without* changing any settings.

 

You can also contact SAS Technical Support at support@sas.com or 1-800-727-0025 if you'd like. 

 

Regards,

Randy

Hi Reeza,

I have followed some instructions to select RedHat (64bits) on the VirtuaBox
Manager>Settings>General>Version dropdown and that seems to have worked. I
had a few more problems launching SAS University Edition which solved, so
now I am up and running. Is this OK?

It should have been RedHat so yes, that should be fine. If it's running that's the key test anyways Smiley Happy

Glad you're up and running.
