DetailsAboutRate It
  • Insert the SAS Software Navigator CD.
  • Select Advanced as type of Deployment and specify the location of your SID file when prompted.
  • Select the deployment plan named: "Enterprise Miner Upgrade, two machines"
  • Select 'ServerTier' for the machine when prompted.
  • Install the components specified in the plan on the server machine.

    Note: Foundation SAS is included in the plan. There are foundation SAS components that need to be updated for SAS Enterprise Miner 5.3 to work correctly. The installer will detect that SAS is already installed and present the choices to 'Add Components to SAS' or 'Install a new instance of SAS'. Accept the default 'Add Components to SAS'. On the 'Select Components' screen, all products licensed are selected: accept this default by clicking 'NEXT' to ensure that all components are correctly updated.

  • Complete the Post-Installation Steps.

  • Restart the Servers (ie. Metadata Server, Object Spawner)

    Note: Do not restart the SAS Enterprise Minder Shared Platform Server. That functionality is now replaced by the SAS Analytics Platform Server.

  • Configure the SAS Analytics Platform Server by running the configuration script.

    On Windows systems:

    Go to Start ► Programs ► SAS ► Analytics Platform ► AP Server Advanced Configuration.

    On UNIX systems:

    Go to !SASROOT\SASAPCore\bin and issue this command:

    ./apserver config

    More information on the Analytics Platform server, including configuration, can be found at:

    http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/apcore

  • Start the SAS Analytics Platform server. Once the SAS Analytics Platform server is started, it is ready for clients to connect.

  • If you make use of the Model Repository viewer, the new files will need to be deployed to your web server.

  • You can now uninstall the SAS Enterprise Miner 5.1 components.

  • On the Client Machines (if not deploying via Java Web Start):

    Note: Java Web Start deployment of the SAS Enterprise Miner 5.3 client files is easier than ever. By default, the SAS Analytics Platform Server runs an embedded web server preconfigured to deliver the SAS Enterprise Miner client files. Review the SAS Analytics Platform server documentation for more information on that feature. However, please note that the SAS Enterprise Miner Tree Desktop Application that allows interactive training of Decision Trees must be installed on the client machine. Since that application is installed separately from the SAS Enterprise Miner Client, it is not deployed via Java Web Start.

    1. Insert the SAS Software Navigator CD.

    2. Specify the location of your SID file when prompted.

    3. Select Standard plan and choose the plan named: "Enterprise Miner Upgrade, two machines"

    4. Select 'ClientTier' for the machine when prompted.

    5. Install the components specified in the plan on the client machine.

    6. Complete the Client Post-Installation Steps found here.

    7. Once the install has finished, invoke SAS Enterprise Miner 5.3 by going to Start ► Programs ► SAS ► SAS Enterprise Miner 5.3
