  1. Install and configure The Platform Suite for SAS which is third party grid middleware that ships with the SAS Grid Manager product. This can be done using the appropriate version of the "Installing the Platform Suite for SAS" document on this page.
  2. Install and configure the set of SAS products that you have licensed for the SAS Grid environment. At a minimum, this will be Base SAS, SAS/CONNECT and SAS Grid Manager.
