|Subject: ||Access SAS Installed on a Multi-tier from a PC Client|
|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset="us-ascii"; format=flowed|
We (as in at my institution) have purchased certain number of SAS
products among which the Base SAS software, SAS Integration
Technologies software, SAS IntrNet software, SAS CONNECT and
SAS/ACCESS Interface. Based on products we ordered, the installation
kit also came with the SAS Metadata Server.
We have SAS installed and running on a dedicated SAS server which the
client computer can access via SAS Enterprise Guide. The SAS server
runs on a Windows 2003. The client computer runs on a Windows XP
platform. From the client PC I should be able to connect to the SAS
server, build the Metadata, run analysis, develop applications to
post on the Web. I wonder which of the SAS products should be
installed on the SAS server and which products should be on the
development computer (client PC). 1- Could anyone shed some light?
2- Also, could anyone kindly explain what the difference is between
SAS Integration Technologies software and SAS IntrNet software? Is it
worth having both?
3- Finally, does anyone know of any live class on how to set up,
maintain and administer the SAS server on a multi-tier setting? I
have not been able to get the installation kit to interact with me
during this process. I have many questions I can find the answers in
the package. I have tried SAS Tech Support and every time, I get a
different person on the line with a different approach. I am confused.
Any help is appreciated.
