How to hotfix a server?

It has been quite an effort getting IS to support our server hotfix. See It just crashed… for details. Part of the problem is that IS don’t support the server in any meaningful way at the moment. This is likely to change in the future: watch ths space!

When I discussed hotfixing with SAS® Technical Support, we came to the conclusion that applying the bundled hotfixes for v8 seemed the best bet. These need to be applied to both the client and the server and the next question was: in which order, client first or server first?

For version 8, it doesn’t matter. For version 9, check with SAS Tech Support!
