This document supplements
the SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide
. It provides information about how to copy SAS content
from an existing deployment to a new deployment of SAS Model Manager,
and how to configure the latest release of SAS Model Manager 3.1 on
SAS 9.3 using the SAS Migration Utility and the SAS Deployment Wizard.
This document also provides post-migration steps that must be performed
manually to complete the migration process. When you run the SAS Deployment
Wizard to upgrade to the latest release of SAS Model Manager 3.1,
migration of system configurations and content, including SAS Model
Manager content, is performed during the installation and configuration
of SAS 9.3. All products that are in a deployment are migrated at
the same time.
You can migrate to the
latest release of SAS Model Manager 3.1 on SAS 9.3, from the following
types of deployments:
SAS Model Manager 2.1 on SAS 9.1.3
SAS Model Manager 2.2 on SAS 9.2
SAS Model Manager 2.3 on SAS 9.2
SAS Model Manager 3.1 on SAS 9.3
SAS Model Manager 3.1 M1 on SAS
This type of deployment would
be used if you have upgraded your operating system or hardware. You
can also use the migration tools to make a copy of a complete deployment
on SAS 9.3.
For more information,
see the SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide
which provides details about designing, preparing,
implementing, validating, and delivering a migration for metadata-based
deployments. You can also reference the Migration focus area
in the Knowledge
Base, available at
SAS Model Manager 3.1
is new for SAS 9.3. It contains enhancements and changes that make
it easier to integrate with SAS 9.3. In addition, deployment functionality
has been enhanced. The first maintenance release of SAS Model Manager
3.1 includes additional enhancements and fixes. For more information,
see the SAS Model Manager: User's Guide
or the SAS Model Manager: Administrator's Guide
You can migrate SAS
content from SAS Model Manager 2.1 or later for use with the latest
version of SAS Model Manager 3.1. The SAS content is stored in your
SAS Metadata Server and WebDAV Server.
After you have upgraded
your SAS deployment, you must use the new version of SAS Model Manager.
When you migrate, you perform a full system migration. SAS content
and configuration settings are migrated to SAS 9.3 at the same time. For more information, see High-Level SAS Migration Requirements in SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide.
SAS tools automate most
of the tasks that are necessary to migrate content that is stored
on the SAS Metadata Server and WebDAV Server to SAS 9.3:
The SAS Migration Utility produces
a package of SAS 9.1.3, SAS 9.2, or SAS 9.3 content and configuration
settings that the SAS Deployment Wizard uses during the SAS 9.3 installation
The SAS Deployment Wizard installs
and initially configures SAS 9.3 products. During migration, the SAS
Deployment Wizard reads the package that the SAS Migration Utility
created to update SAS with your content and configuration settings
for SAS 9.3.
If the SAS software is being
upgraded, the SAS Deployment Wizard performs conversions as needed.
