POST-INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

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.



This completes the installation of hot fix M84001 on Solaris for x64.
