HI,

 

We have recently installed SAS VA (LatestEdition) in our domain. To login to SAS VA we are using http://<HostName.DomainName>/SASLogon/login.. But we need to access this URL with a friendly name insted of this long URL, somthing like http://SASVA.

 

Can anybody help me how to setup this.

 

Thanks

Anka

Hi,

 

for that, you have a couple of good options:

 

1- Update Hostnames: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bisag/68240/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n0zdcqxsmd21wtn17vt0... and http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bisag/68240/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n1ov3paky6afj8n1bj7l...

 

2- An easy one: you can just create a DNS alias from <HostName.DomainName> to SASVA on your company's DNS server. The users can use SASVA, the server wil answer with <HostName.DomainName>

 

3- If still you need the users to remain on SASVA dns, you will need rewrite/redirect rules on the WebServer (probably your SAS Web Server, unless you have an external Reverse Proxy in place). If it is the SAS Web Server only, this is practically an Apache server, so your Apache experts should be able to configure this properly, in addition to the DNS alias.

Hi,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Yes, we can use alias for Hostname.domainname.. But Login page is not displying with out /SASLogon/login after alias name in URL.

 

We don't want to add /SAS/Logon/login to the URL.. Is there a way to open SAS VA login page with only http://SASVA

 

Please help me on this.

 

Thanks

Please give a look into this thread: https://communities.sas.com/t5/General-SAS-Programming/URL-REDIRECT/td-p/170678

 

Also, you can just google something like "Apache URL redirect" and similar patterns. This is a very common practice on web server administration.

 

Also, this is something you can create in your DNS/firewall, to create redirect rules.

By the way... you should never use /SASLogon/login. You should give to your users /SASVisualAnalyticsHub and such.

 Also, if you just type http://yourserver , you will go to a static webpage right? You can modify or create your own static web pages with nice emages and links to the applications you want, under /SASWebServer/htdocs
