If you have SAS running on remote
sites that do not have access to the network on which your SAS Software
Depot resides, you can use the SAS Deployment Wizard to create an
ISO image of your SAS software order. Then, using a media creation
tool of your choice, you can write the image to the removable media
format that you specify: either CDs or DVDs.
You can create a disc
image on a per order basis only. If your SAS Software Depot consists
of more than one order, then you have to make multiple disc images.
To create a disc image
of your SAS order, follow these steps:
Log on to the depot
machine as a SAS Software Depot administrator or a user with depot
Read, Write, and Execute privileges.
Consider designating one
or a few users to serve as SAS Software Depot administrators. Persons
needing to deploy SAS software or to apply future SAS software maintenance
require depot Read and Execute privileges. Depot administration tasks
such as initially creating the depot, storing SAS installation data
files, and updating order details require depot Write privileges.
Start the SAS Deployment
Wizard. Navigate to the SAS Software Depot's root directory, and,
depending on your operating system, do the following:
a command prompt.

Choose the language
in which the SAS Deployment Wizard will display messages and prompts.

which you want to create a disc image, and then select Create
Choose the type of media
(CDs or DVDs) for which you want to create an image of your SAS software
order. Also, provide the path where you want the SAS Deployment Wizard
to write this image. When you are ready, select Start
The SAS Deployment Wizard
begins writing SAS order files to the target directory.
When the progress indicator
displays 100%, the image is complete and you can select OK
close the SAS Deployment Wizard.
The file system that
the SAS Deployment Wizard has created is an ISO image of your SAS
order that is logically arranged into directories that map to either
CD-ROM or DVD disc. Each directory also contains a summary to enable
you to maintain media labels.
Using a media creation
tool of your choice, you can now write the installable image of your
SAS order to the type of removable media that you specified earlier:
either CDs or DVDs.
