Problem summary

  • THE SAS Sanity test also failing on the AIX 64 bit platform.
    
    ERROR DESCRIPTION:
    The SAS Sanity (available under $APT_ORCHHOME/example/sas fails
    with the following error, when run on IS 8.1 on AIX platform.
    .
    error:
    ##E IIS-DSEE-TOSA-00031 00:31:07(013) <APT_SAS_Driver in sas,0>
    ERROR: The value  is not a valid SAS name.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Till Information Server 8.1 release, we do not have 64 bit
    support in SAS Enterprise Stage. Because of which, IS and hence
    SAS Enterprise Stage are built for 32 bit whereas SAS was 64
    bit. From IS 8.1 onwards, we have support for 64 bit in IS, and
    hence the SAS enterprise stage is build in 64 bit mode to
    address this issue.
