Deployment and Migration to new Environment

Hi

I`ve just finished my first development in the SAS EBI suite ...right from DI studio to Web report Studio...

Unfortunately we have not had any experience on migration and deployment of the components to a new env..

Please could someone who has already done something similar share some guideline and documents which can help us smoothly migtae from one env to another

Re: Deployment and Migration to new Environment

The term 'Migration' is used by SAS to denote upgrading content from 1 version to the next. The migration page: http://support.sas.com/rnd/migration/ goes into this in detail.

It sounds from your description that you are looking to 'Promote' content from Dev to Prod. In 9.2, the SGF Paper from SAS http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/sgf2008/migratemetadata.pdf
might be the best starting point.

(If you are still in 9.1.3, my Dev to Test to Prod SGF paper might be a better overview. http://www2.sas.com/proceedings/forum2007/204-2007.pdf)

Re: Deployment and Migration to new Environment

In the absence of metadata manger plugin , is there any other way we could move forward with the promotion and deployment of the metadata

Re: Deployment and Migration to new Environment

Don't think you'd really need the metadata manager plugin to perform promotions.
(List of functions in Metadata Mgr: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bisag/60945/HTML/default/viewer.htm#a003253351.htm)

Can you add some detail on what you're working on? Specifically:
1. SAS Version
2. Content to Promote
3. Your level of access
4. Architecture (dev to prod) - different Metadata Servers, different Foundation Levs, etc.

Thanks,
Angela
