SAS Migration Utility: Baseline Requirements

The above documents explain the upgrade paths for moving to newer releases of SAS. Some products must be at a specific release, or apply maintenance or hot fixes, before using the automated migration tools.

In addition, in the Analysis Report that is generated by the SAS Migration Utility, you can find warnings about products or components that do not meet the baseline requirements.

A copy of the SAS Migration Utility is available to download for a preliminary analysis of your SAS environment before migration. When you are ready to proceed with your migration, use the SAS Migration Utility that is included in your order to perform your analysis, assess requirements, and create the migration package. If you use a SAS Migration Utility other than the version included in your order, it might support a different set of products and components than your order, and the migration package could produce inaccurate results.

Other useful tools are the ViewRegistry Report, the PRODUCT_STATUS procedure, and the SAS Installation Reporter (see SAS Note 35968). See also How to document your SAS environment.
