Certify Information Server with SAS 9.4 M6

We are using Information Server 11.7.1 and have multiple ETL jobs that use SAS connectors to execute SAS code from the ETL server ( SAS 9.4 M3 ).

However the SAS version has now been upgraded to SAS 9.4 M6 and the connectivity via the provided connector is failing. The customer needs the M6 platform to avail the latest features on SAS. So all the ETL jobs that we currently have are non-functional, which is a big impact.
