Error 1 – Cannot find HLM archive

When: Installing a SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager.

Cause: The SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager software package folder is not well prepared.  The SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager .SAR file is also required to be copied into the extracted folder.

Action: Copied the .SAR into the extracted folder and retry.  See the example in part 2 of Prepare a HANA System for Lumira Server Install.

Error 2 – hdbinst is not an executable program

When: During the installation phase of SAP SAL AFL.

Cause: Most likely the software package files were extracted at Windows and transferred to Linux thus losing all permission information.

Action: Run “chmod -R 777” on the SAP SAL AFL software package folder and retry.

Error 3 – Could not connect to the SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager
/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/error3_486276.png/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/error3_1_486277.png

When: Launching SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager from HANA Studio.

Cause: There is no SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager installed or SAP Host Agent is not running properly.

Action: Check if SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager is installed.  Also check SAP Host Agent’s TCP port 1128 (for HTTP) and 1129 (for HTTPS) are listening.  If 1129 is not listening, one must properly configure SSL for SAP Host Agent.

Error 4 – Update prerequisites for component sap.com/LUMIRA_SERVER are not fulfilled. Required Component sap.com/NETT_AFL is not found in the list of deployed components.

When: Deploying Lumira Server.

Cause: SAP SAL AFL is not installed. Do not confuse by SAP HANA AFL – it is a different component from SAP SAL AFL.

Action: Install SAP SAL AFL and retry.

Error 5 – Product with caption SAP LUMIRA SERVER 1 found in landscape description file has PPMS id … which does not match the id … of product SAP HANA PLATFORM EDIT. 1.0.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/error5_486279.png

When: Deploying Lumira Server.

Cause: The SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager is an old version.

Action: Upgrade SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager to the required or the latest version/SP/patch level and retry.

Error 6 – SAP HANA Database … is not compatible with installed plugin(s): SAP Application Function Libraries

u error 1.png

When: Installing required components for Lumira Server through upgrade install.

Cause: The existing old HANA system has a SAP AFL plugin installed but not upgraded yet.

Action: Upgrade the SAP AFL plugin to the target level together with the required components.  See the example in part 3.2 of Prepare a HANA System for Lumira Server Install.

Error 7 – MinPatchNumberCheck.sh: SAP Host Agent is not installed

error no hostagent.png

When: Installing SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager through hdbinst.

Cause: No SAP HOST AGENT exists.

Action: Install SAP HOST AGENT at the same installation:  ./hdbinst –hlm_archive=/IMDB/SAPHANALM07_10-10012745/SAPHANALM07_10-10012745.SAR –host_agent_package=/IMDB/saphostagentrpm_182-20005731.rpm

Error 8 – The passed SAP Host Agent file path … is rpm or sar file

wrong param 1.png

wrong param 2.pngwrong param 3.png

When: Installing SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager through hdblcmgui and enter path of HOSTAGENT.TGZ as parameter as shown above.

Cause: TGZ is not recognized by the installer.

Action: Download and use the .rpm version of SAP HOST AGENT.

Error 9 – Mandatory Parameter ‘sapadm_password’ (HostagentPassword) is missing of invalid

wrong param 4.png

When: Installing SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager through hdblcmgui and enter a correct path of .rpm version of SAP HOST AGENT as parameter.

Cause: To be investigated

Action: A workaround is to use hdbinst instead of hdblcmgui.

Error 10 – Verification of manifest /usr/sap/hostctrl/work/SIGNATURE.SMF failed.

Error Signature Verification.png

When: The SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager is installed successfully but throws this error when clicking Deploy HANA Content or View Installed Products and Software Components.  This is observed in HANA rev. 81.

Cause: The signed signature in SIGNATURE.SMF (located in the extracted folder when installing SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager) is bad.  One possible reason is that during the preparation phase for installing, an old version of SAPCAR (e.g. release 700) is used to extract the .SAR file which couldn’t handle the SIGNATURE.SMF file properly.

Action: Check the version of SAPCAR used and the file size of SIGNATURE.SMF (zero file size is a bad sign) in the extracted folder.  Upgrade SAPCAR to the latest version (e.g. release 720) and re-extract the .SAR file then update/reinstall SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager.

Error 11 – Http error: Forbidden

hdbalm error.png

When: Deploying SAP Lumira Server (e.g. v1.21) with the “hdbalm” tool.

Cause: The HANA user specified by -u option (e.g. user “SYSTEM”) doesn’t have sufficient right to perform the operation.

Action: In HANA Studio, assign role ‘sap.hana.xs.lm.roles::Administrator’ to the user and then retry.
