Not so long ago we asked our local SAS tech. sup. when we did need the
special NT/SERVER license. Here is what they told us (after a few days of
1_) If you intend to use your NT/SERVER as a file server only (at least for
SAS), then you do NOT need a special license. But then the server cannot run
SAS, only the clients can.
You must run the setinit procedure on the client and copy the result on the
server as the server will NOT be able to run SAS (not even the setinit proc).
2_) If you want to use you NT/SERVER as an application Server (running SAS on
the server), or running things like SAS/SHARE on the server, then you need a
Setinit for the modules you want to use on the server (and of course, ahem,
you will get these at a SERVER price).
