In my documentation I’ll explain how to setup and configure a SAP Hana Dynamic Tiering scenario in my test environment. I will show in detail step and configuration point to achieve this configuration.
For my HDT test case I’ll use my own lab on Vmware Vsphere 5.1.0 and run Hana revision 91, I’ll reuse my existing environment setup in my previous documentation.
Disclaimer: this is a personal documentation for test purpose; I will take in consideration the sizing for DT.
In order execution
- Download Hana DT media
- Prepare DT specific filesystem
- Install DT component
- Add new host for DT worker
- Configure DT storage
- Monitoring of DT in hana cockpit

In my previous documentation “SAP Hana TDI setup – VMware 5.1” I have explain and setup different scenario of Hana deployment, I’ll reuse my master hana system “hana01” and create a new host from template to add it as “Hana DT worker” host.
Download Hana DT media
In order to install Hana DT specific media needs to be download, those media can be download unde :
“Install & Upgrade -> Hana Platform Edition -> SAP Hana Dynamic Tiering”
Once downloaded, I unzip the file and place the media in my repository
Prepare DT specific filesystem
Install DT component
Now that the media and the filesystem are ready it’s time to deploy the DT component on the master node.
The deployment can be performed in 3 different ways:
Using the graphical tool “hdblcmgui” under under “/hana/shared/HB1/hdblcm”
Add new host for DT worker
Now completed we need to install the additional host which will be used as “Hana DT worker”, to do this we can use “hdblcm” or “hdblcmgui” option.
I’ll go by the hdblcmgui option:
Review and launch
Configure DT storage
I define my storage size for my Extended Table and hit create
Monitoring of DT in HANA cockpit
The monitoring of DT is done over the cockpit, its straight forward
The configuration is completed.
