Error message when starting SAP B1H



I’ve recently installed a new SAP Business One database in HANA. When trying to access it from the ERP got this error message: “It was not possible to establish the connection to the SAP HANA server”.


As usual, no information regarding that particular message was found on the net… However, the solution was pretty simple: It turns out that B1Analytics needs to be initialised before running SAP B1H, so that analytics gets to work properly.


Simple steps to initialise Analytics in the SLD:


  1. Select the Analytics Platform option.
  2. Go to Companies.
  3. Choose the company that you would like to initialise.
  4. Click on the Initialise button.
  5. That’s all. The company should now appear as “Initialized” in the list:




Hope this helps.
