Migration

Share Server

The SAS/SHARE Server provides concurrent update access to SAS® files for multiple users.

For any updates or hot fixes that are required before you can migrate, see the baseline requirements topic.

Messages

caution Conflict over port number found between server-name-1 and server-name-2.
You can ignore this message if server-name-1 and server-name-2 are the same server (for example, Connection: Connect Server and Connection: Connect Server). Contact SAS Technical Support if the two servers are different.

caution "server-name" will not be migrated successfully, as its connection specifies service as "server-ID". To support migration for this server, you need to empty the service prompt and run SMU again.
See below for acceptable forms of the server ID value.

caution "server-name" will not be migrated successfully, as port number not found in its Server ID "server-ID". To support migration for this server, you need to update the Server ID and run SMU again.
See below for acceptable forms of the server ID value.

caution "server-name" will not be migrated as the host name in Server ID "server-ID" doesn't resemble to the local host.
Acceptable forms for the server ID value are:
   __port
   short-host-name.__port
Precede the port number with two underscores. The short host name must be a valid SAS name that is 8 characters or less in length.

caution The server name contains characters not compatible with SAS 9.2. Please remove the incompatible characters from server name before migration.
For SAS/CONNECT, SAS/SHARE, and Operating System Services in migrations to early releases of SAS 9.2, some users can see this message even though no action is needed. The SAS Deployment Wizard corrects the name automatically for this server. You can disregard this error for the SAS/CONNECT, SAS/SHARE, and Operating System Services.

Be aware that you might need to correct the names of other servers before you migrate. The naming convention in the SAS Management Console has changed. In SAS 9.2 and later, the forward slash and backslash are not supported in server names. Other unsupported characters in server names include control characters (e.g., tabs, newlines) and leading or trailing blanks. The name must not be greater than 60 characters, and must be specified (non-null).
