Getting Started

This section describes the processes for configuring and administering a SAS Integration Technologies implementation. In general, SAS Integration Technologies configuration and administration involves configuring the application resources for your site and deploying them for access by applications or users. The specifics of the process depend on the requirements for your implementation.

If you performed a planned installation (using either the Advanced or the Personal installation option), then the SAS Configuration Wizard provided you with an initial configuration of resources. If you performed a Software Index installation (which does not use the SAS Configuration Wizard), then you must plan, install, and define your configuration after the installation is complete. Depending on whether you used the SAS Configuration Wizard, the configuration and administration steps are as follows:

  1. Understand the general administration tasks and software. For details, see Overview of Administration.

  2. Plan and set up your server resources. Depending on how you configure your initial setup, see the appropriate section in order to plan and set up your implementation:

    • Configuration Without the SAS Configuration Wizard. To understand how to plan and set up your implementation without using the SAS Configuration Wizard, see Getting Started Without the SAS Configuration Wizard.

    • Configuration With the SAS Configuration Wizard. To understand the initial configuration that was planned, installed, and set up by the SAS Configuration Wizard, and how to plan for additional features and modify the initial configuration, see Getting Started With the SAS Configuration Wizard.

  3. Set up libraries (optional). For details about setting up libraries, see Setting up Libraries.

  4. Set up other SAS Integration Technologies features. To set up other features, you must define the resources on the SAS Metadata Server. For details about setting up SAS Stored Processes, SAS Publication Channels, and SAS Foundation Services on the SAS Metadata Server, see Getting Started in the SAS Integration Technologies: Administrator's Guide.

  5. Start your servers and services. To understand how to start servers, and the order in which servers and services must be started in order to run your implementation, see the Starting Servers section.

  6. Update your configuration. After you set up your implementation and roll it out to the user community, you might occasionally need to change your SAS Integration Technologies configuration. Therefore, you should establish a maintenance procedure for making changes to the configuration. If you need to move servers, refer to the detailed instructions in the Moving Servers section.

For details about coding client applications to access the server, user, and other resource metadata on the SAS Metadata Server, see the SAS Integration Technologies: Developer's Guide.
