Updated deployment tool for SAS hot fixes


An updated version of the SAS Hot Fix Analysis, Download and Deployment Tool (SASHFADD) has just been released on the SAS Technical Support Hot Fix site.

If you are not familiar with SASHFADD (pronounced SAS-H-F-ADD), it’s a tool that will analyze a SAS 9.2, SAS 9.3 or SAS 9.4 deployment and will:

  • Create a customized hot fix download page and analysis report with information on all the SAS Hot Fixes eligible for installation on that SAS deployment
  • Generate scripts to streamline the hot fix download process
  • Create a directory structure for storing the downloaded hot fixes that can be easily referenced by the SAS 9.3 and SAS 9.4 Deployment Manager. A script for  silently installing hot fixes is generated for SAS 9.2.

SASHFADD can be run on Windows or UNIX machines that have internet access, and neither SAS 9.2, SAS 9.3 nor SAS 9.4 need to be installed on the same machine as SASHFADD.

For more information and a list of the latest features in the new SASHFADD 2.1, visit the SASHFADD home page.
