You can now enable Kerberos delegation across the SAS Platform, using a single strong authentication mechanism across that single platform. As always with configuring Kerberos authentication the prerequisites, in terms of Service Principal Names, service accounts, delegation settings, and keytabs are important for success.

In this article, I will set out clear principles for how SAS Viya 3.3 will interoperate with Kerberos. My aim is to present some overview concepts for how we can use Kerberos authentication with SAS Viya 3.3. We will look at both SAS Viya 3.3 clients and SAS 9.4M5 clients.
atIn SAS Viya, deployments identities are managed by the environments configured identity provider. In Visual SAS Viya deployments the identity provider must be an LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) server. Initial setup of a SAS Viya Deployment requires configuration to support reading the identity information (users and groups) from LDAP. SAS Viya
Update-in-place supports the ability to update a SAS Deployment within a major SAS release. Updates often provide new versions of SAS products. However, when using the SAS Deployment Wizard to perform an update-in-place you cannot selectively update a machine or product. As a general rule if you want to update
One of the jobs of SAS Administrators is keeping the SAS license current. In the past, all you needed to do was update the license for Foundation SAS and you were done. This task can be performed by selecting the Renew SAS Software option in the SAS Deployment Manager. More recently,
SAS Grid Manager for Hadoop is a brand new product released with SAS 9.4M3 this summer. It gives you the ability to co-locate your SAS Grid jobs on your Hadoop data nodes to let you further leverage your investment in your Hadoop infrastructure. This is possible because SAS Grid Manager
Sizing is a topic that solutions managers typically leave until the end after decisions about the application have been settled.

Recently my wife and I took our annual anniversary trip – this time we went to the Grand Canyon, staying in Las Vegas. In researching our options to fly from Raleigh-Durham (RDU) to Las Vegas (LAS), we had several different selection criteria: what time we wanted to leave what time
My Performance Validation team in SAS R&D is constantly working with our partners to test how their storage arrays work with SAS. In late 2014, we finalized several papers that discuss how a mixed analytics workload performs on several storage arrays. While doing this testing, we also listed lessons-learned in
Perhaps it is my astrological sign, but as a Gemini, I seem to be cursed blessed with a duality that consists of balancing my creative side with exacting nature of my logical side. In my personal life, I enjoy woodworking. Whether it is creating “art in the round” from a
My family are all Lord of the Rings Trilogy fans. As a novice in the world of SAS administration, I find discussing the SAS middle tier architecture a little like traveling through Middle Earth. For me, it’s new and fascinating terrain. And like other travelers, I would find it useful
