Before applying this hot fix, follow the instructions in SAS Note 35968 to generate a SAS Deployment Registry report, then verify that the appropriate product releases are installed on your system. The release number information in the Registry report should match the 'member' release number information provided above for the software components installed on each machine in your deployment.
The hot fix downloaded, A9G002pt.zip, includes the updates required for all components listed above on all applicable operating systems. To apply this hot fix on multiple machines, you can either save A9G002pt.zip on each machine or save it in a network location that is accessible to all machines.
Do NOT extract the contents of A9G002pt.zip. The hot fix installation process will extract the contents as needed.
The hot fix will be applied using the SAS Deployment Manager. By default, the SAS Deployment Manager will search in the <SASHOME>\InstallMisc\HotFixes\New directory for hot fixes to be applied, but will also prompt for a location if you have downloaded hot fixes to a different directory.
After downloading A9G002pt.zip, follow the instructions for applying hot fixes in the SAS Deployment Wizard and SAS Deployment Manager 9.4: User's Guide.
Please review the CONFIGURATION Important Note above concerning proper selection of the "Configure SAS Hot Fix" option in the SAS Deployment Manager.
The hot fix installation process generates the log file
<!SASHOME>\InstallMisc\InstallLogs\IT_date-and-time-stamp.logfor example, IT_2011-10-31-13.18.21.log. Each attempt to apply a hot fix results in the creation of a new log file giving detailed information regarding the installation process.
Postexec log files are created after the installation is completed and identifies the files that were added, backed up, changed and removed. These log files include the ‘member’ hot fix id in the name of the file and are also written to the <!SASHOME>\InstallMisc\InstallLogs directory. There is one postexec log for each ‘member’ hot fix applied (member hot fixes are listed at the top of these instructions).
The content of this hot fix is listed in the hot fix manifest.
Required only for distributed deployments:
As part of the client install, the hot fix installs an executable file called lasr.so that must also be manually copied to the computing appliance. On Linux for x64, this file is installed in <SASHome>/SASFoundation/9.4/sasexe/lasr.so. This file should be copied under the TKGrid install location on the computing appliance; for example, /opt/TKGrid/lib. When copying the file, make sure the proper mode of 755 is set.
If your computing appliance uses a shared install, you need to copy lasr.so only to the shared location. However, if your computing appliance uses a replicated install, you must copy lasr.so to every node.
Additionally, if the TKGrid installation script to enable sashdat file encryption (TKGrid_SEC_x86_64.sh) has been run on the computing appliance, then you will need to remove the copy of lasr.so from the TKGrid/lib2 location. The TKGrid/lib2/lasr.so executable file would need to be removed from all nodes in a replicated install.
This completes the installation of hot fix A9G002 on Windows for x64.
