Known Support Issues

The following issues are known and may impact the expected usage or performance of the Viya ARK tools.

  • SAS Viya 3.5 supports Linux on Power on a limited availability basis. The SAS Viya ARK tools do not support Linux on Power in the Viya35-ark-1.0 release.
  • Viya ARK Pre-Install Playbook SSL check play may fail to complete if multiple sets of SSL configuration files exist. The playbook will not fail, but subsequent tasks related to SSL Certificate check will be skipped. Workaround the issue by ensuring only one configuration file specifying SSLCertificateFile exist under /etc/[httpd|apache2] root directory.
