IMPORTANT NOTES

  1. Files delivered in this hot fix will be backed up during the installation process. However, it is good general practice to back up your system before applying updates to software.

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

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

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

  5. CONFIGURATION: No automatic configuration scripting is included for this hot fix. If you have previously configured software installed, the SAS Deployment Manager may present a screen where you will see "Apply SAS Hot Fixes" and "Configure SAS Hot Fixes" options. On this screen, you must ensure that the "Configure SAS Hot Fix" option is *not* selected. If this option is automatically selected, please de-select it prior to proceeding with the SAS Deployment Manager Screens. Failure to do so could have unintended consequences when applying this hot fix.


INSTALLATION

If your installation has any combination of SAS Marketing Automation (MA), SAS Marketing Optimization (MO), and/or SAS Digital Marketing (SDM), the Apply Hot Fixes, Rebuild Web Applications, and Deploy Web Applications steps can be combined and performed for MA, MO, and SDM in one iteration per step. This can be performed as follows:

Hot Fix Z69022 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 Digital Marketing 6.5 require updating on the machine. See SAS Note 44810 for more details.

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 Z69022pt.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.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.


POST-INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  1. SAS Security Updates
    SAS Security Updates are applied during the initial installation of your software. In order to maintain the latest level of security offered by SAS, security updates should be applied and/or re-applied after any changes to your software, including installation of hot fixes. The current SAS Security Updates for all releases of SAS are available at https://tshf.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/HF2/SAS_Security_Updates.html. Please re-apply security updates in accordance with the SAS Security Updates and Hot Fixes document available on the SAS Security Updates web page.

  2. Web Application Update

    If this hotfix was installed automatically by SAS Deployment Wizard during the initial software installation, or as part of your SAS 9.4M5 Update In Place, (as opposed to installing SAS Customer Intelligence hot fixes on an already configured system using SAS Deployment Manager), these steps in 1. Web Application Update, can be skipped.

    This hot fix requires steps that will update the web application deployed to your application server.

    (Note: If you are also installing other SAS Customer Intelligence hot fixes, along with this hot fix, you can select those web applications to rebuild at the same time. IMPORTANT: Refer to the hot fix installation instructions for each of these other SAS Customer Intelligence solutions and ensure you have followed all of the preceding instructions needed, before re-building and re-deploying the additional web applications that need to be re-built and re-deployed).

    Rebuild the following Web Applications:

    Redeploy the following Web Applications:

    For more information about how to rebuild and redeploy Web Applications, see the SASŪ 9.4 Intelligence Platform, Middle-Tier Administration Guide, Chapter 8 Administering SAS Web Applications on Rebuilding the SAS Web Applications and Redeploying the SAS Web Applications.

  3. Deploy bess.war and bess_proxy.war
    The Web Application Update process will update the Digital Marketing Web Studio and Web Reporting Infrastructure in <CONFIGDIR>/Lev1/Web/Staging/exploded. If you are running in a double bess.war architecture, then a second copy of the bess.war file is also provided (bess_proxy.war) for the external web application server. A backup of the original archives will be placed in the Staging/Backup directory. The <CONFIGDIR>/Lev1/Web/Staging/exploded/bess.ear/bess.war and <CONFIGDIR>/Lev1/Web/Staging/exploded/bess_proxy.ear/bess_proxy.war directories must be deployed to their respective web application servers following this step (Note: Deploying the bess.war and bess_proxy.war files is a manual step).

  4. Review SAS Notes
    After the installation of this hot fix and product post-installation instructions, please review the following SAS Notes for details on changes that are required to take advantage of the hot fixes.
