IBM WebSphere Application Server Software Version Requirements
SAS 9.2 supports both WebSphere Application Server and the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment. Some SAS solutions do not support WebSphere Application Server at all; they only support WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment. Other solutions do not support all of the versions or platforms shown below. See the system requirements for your SAS solution for definitive information.
The minimum version requirements for IBM WebSphere Application Server for use with SAS 9.2 (TS2M3) up through revision 10w42 are the same as for the second maintenance release for SAS 9.2 (TS2M2).

- To contact an IBM representative or to place an order for WebSphere, see the IBM Application Infrastructure page. You can reach a representative by calling the toll-free telephone number under "We're here to help" in the right pane.
- You must review and follow the instructions in the section below "WebSphere Application Server Fix Packs" to obtain and apply the required fix pack from IBM.
- Before you run the SAS® Deployment Wizard to install SAS software and configure IBM WebSphere, review the IBM WebSphere Application Server Documentation below.
- To configure web authentication with WebSphere 7, you must use WebSphere 126.96.36.199 or later.
IBM WebSphere Application Server Fix Packs
SAS 9.2 supports IBM WebSphere Application Server with a designated WebSphere Application Server Fix Pack applied. The separate fix pack must be installed to bring it to the supported level.
- Before applying a fix pack, you need to download and install the appropriate Update Installer. The Update Installer is no longer bundled with fix packs.
- Please see the Readme for IBM WebSphere Application Server version 188.8.131.52 or the Readme for IBM WebSphere Application Server version 184.108.40.206 documentation.
- Download the WebSphere Application Server V6.1.0 Fix Pack 21 or WebSphere Application Server V7.0.0 Fix Pack 9 into the Update Installers maintenance directory. Please note that there are unique fix packs for each platform. Select the correct tab on the page for your applicable platform.
- Invoke the Update Installer to apply the fix pack.
IBM WebSphere Application Server Configuration Documentation
