SAS Migration Utility: Analysis Report Messages

Analysis Reports are generated by the SAS Migration Utility. Analysis Reports describe the readiness of the previous SAS deployment for migration, and enumerate the SAS content that will be migrated. Many of the Analysis Report messages refer to this Web page for additional information.

For general information about how to use the SAS Migration Utility and how to upgrade a deployment of SAS Intelligence Platform, see the documentation listed on the SAS Migration Utility topic.

In the Analysis Report, messages are grouped by products and components. To get more information about a message, select the link below that represents the product or component from the Analysis Report. See also an explanation of how to use the migration version analysis in the Analysis Report.

Migration of this SAS environment is not recommended. This version of the SAS Migration Utility does not support migration for product-name.
Verify that you are using the SAS Migration Utility that is included in your order. A copy of the SAS Migration Utility is available to download for a preliminary analysis of your previous deployment. 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.

If your Migration Utility is correct and you still receive this message in any section of the Analysis Report, then you should wait to perform a migration of your deployment until the product is supported.

It is possible to create a migration package, and use that package to deploy the new system without the unsupported product. However, data associated with the unsupported product is not migrated. Later, when the product becomes supported and you want to add the product to your new deployment, you will be required to recreate all content, because you cannot migrate a single product with SAS Migration Utility.

For more information, contact SAS Technical Support.

Migration of this SAS environment is not recommended. This version of product-name is not at the required version and needs to be upgraded in order to use the automated migration processes.
A message like this indicates that a product needs an update or hot fix in the previous deployment before you can migrate. See the baseline requirements topic.
