WebDAV functionality is provided to the SAS Web applications and solutions in SAS® 9.3 by the SAS® Content Server. The third-party WebDAV servers that were supported for SAS 9.1.3, Xythos WFS, and Apache HTTP Server are not supported for SAS 9.3.
For more information about the SAS Content Server, see "Administering the SAS Content Server" in the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform: Web Application Administration Guide, Second Edition.
The SAS® Download Manager and the SAS® Deployment Wizard provide a windowing interface that requires an X11 server in UNIX and z/OS environments. However, starting with SAS 9.3 Revision 930_12W19, a new feature called console mode enables you to use the SAS Download Manager and the SAS Deployment Wizard in a text-based terminal window without an X11 server.
Note: When you deploy SAS® Data Integration Server or SAS® IT Resource Management under UNIX or z/OS, you must have a virtual frame buffer such as Xvfb running on the target host if you are using console mode.
For z/OS, additional details are provided in your installation instructions. For all other operating environments, see the SAS® Deployment Wizard and SAS® Deployment Manager 9:3 User's Guide.
|All SAS 9.3 Supported Platforms||Xming||If you are using a Java 7 JRE we recommend you use Cygwin instead of Xming for reasons discussed in SAS Note 49296
If you use Xming to connect to a z/OS host, you must set the host name of your z/OS system in the X0.hosts file in the Xming install directory, and then start Xming before starting either esdclient.zos or setup.rexx on z/OS.
|All SAS 9.3 Supported Platforms||Cygwin/X||(not tested with download tools)|
|All SAS 9.3 Supported Platforms||Exceed Freedom||From Open Text Connectivity Solutions Group (formerly known as Hummingbird)|
|All SAS 9.3 Supported Unix Platforms||An X11 server is typically delivered with the system. Ensure you have connectivity between the UNIX and Z/OS systems using TCP/IP or other networking protocols.|
