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.

U93007  updates  SAS Environment Manager Enablement Kit Plug-in 2.2
U94005  updates  SAS Environment Manager Enablement Kit Server 2.2

U93007  updates  SAS Environment Manager Enablement Kit Plug-in 2.2

Applying the hot fix via the SAS Deployment Manager puts the new sas-gridpws-plugin.jar file in the SASHome area but not in the SASConfig area. Post-Installation steps are required in an already configured system to replace the sas-gridpws-plugin.jar file in SASConfig.

In an already configured system, the updated sas-gridpws-plugin.jar file will need to be replaced on the SAS Environment Manager Agent(s). The hot fix installs an updated version of the sas-gridpws-plugin.jar file in <SASHome>/SASEnvironmentManagerEnablementKitPlugin/2.2/.

Note: If the hot fix is being applied after the SAS installation but before any prior SAS configuration has been completed then these post-install instructions will not be needed as the initial configuration will copy the hotfix jar file to the correct configuration directories as part of the SAS configuration. These instructions are required if a replacement of the plug-in jars are required in the SASConfig area.

  1. Log in to SAS Environment Manager using an account that is a member of the Environment Manager Super User group.

  2. Select Manage. Under Server Settings, select Plug-in Manager.

  3. Select the sas-gridpws plugin. Select Delete Selected Plug-in(s).

  4. Verify that all instances of the sas-gridpws-plugin.jar file have been deleted in the following <SASConfig> directories. If the file has not been deleted, manually remove it.

  5. Stop the SAS Environment Manager Server and Agent

  6. Delete the contents of the agent data, logs and lib directories on the SAS Environment Manager Server machine:
    <SASConfig>/LevX /Web/SASEnvironmentManager/agent-5.8.0-EE/log/
    <SASConfig>/LevX /Web/SASEnvironmentManager/agent-5.8.0-EE/bundles/agent-5.8.0/pdk/work/lib/sas-gridpws/
    The content of these directories will get replaced with the new content from the new jar file.

  7. Copy the new jar file from the SASHome area to the SAS Environment Manager Server config area. Copy:

  8. Start the SAS Environment Manager Server and the SAS Environment Manager Agent.

  9. The SAS Environment Manager Server will synchronize the sas-gridpws plug-in across all of the Environment Manager Agents in the configuration.
    The Agent Sync Status column in the Plug-In Manager for the sas-gridpws plug-in will indicate the synchronization status. After the updated plugin has been installed on all of the Agents, the Agent Sync Status will display a green checkmark.
