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, P20001pt.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 P20001pt.zip on each machine or save it in a network location that is accessible to all machines.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  1. You must have SAS Merchandise Intelligence 5.2_M4 installed on your system before applying this hot fix. Refer to SN-35968 for instructions on how to determine which product releases you have installed.

  2. At a minimum, back up your system:
    a.    For SAS, refer to the SAS 9.3 Guide to Software Updates for documentation about back up tasks:
    http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/whatsdiff/63859/HTML/default/viewer.htm#titlepage.htm

    b.    For SAS Merchandise Intelligence, backup the MI data mart and database.
    Technical Support strongly suggests that you back up all of your files. You should always try to include the current date in the name of the backup file created to distinguish between versions of backup files. By doing this, you will maintain a history of the file, which will be helpful when multiple iterations of a maintenance release have been applied to the same file. For example:
           cp com.sas.solutions.di.server.jar com.sas.solutions.di.server.jar.08202012
           where 08202012 is the date when the maintenance release is applied.
    The extension must be appended after the .jar extension, as it appears above.

  3. You must have Administrator Privileges on your CLIENT or SERVER machine.

  4. All currently active SAS sessions, daemons, spawners and servers must be terminated before applying this hot fix:

  5. This hot fix should be installed using the same userid who performed the initial software installation.

  6. You must deploy the hot fix in the following timeframe


INSTALLATION

Hot Fix P20001 must be installed on each machine where the updated components of the product, listed above, are installed. During the installation process you may see references to all operating systems for which updates are provided in the hot fix. The installation process will determine the operating system and which component(s) of SAS Revenue Optimization 5.2_M4 require updating on the machine. See SAS Note 44810 for more details.

The hot fix will be applied using the SAS Deployment Manager (SDM). By default, the SDM 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 P20001pt.zip, follow the instructions for applying hot fixes in the SAS Deployment Wizard and SAS Deployment Manager 9.3: User’s Guide.


The hot fix installation process generates the log file

<!SASHOME>\InstallMisc\InstallLogs\IT_date-and-time-stamp.log
for 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.
