Hello everyone:

This is the correct way to extract the *.SAR files. It assumes you have downloaded the SAPCAR utility to some path on your server, and have created a subdirectoy specific to the version you want to install or upgrade.

Sample file structure:

/usr/sap/install/SAPCAR_0-80000935-linux

/usr/sap/install/1025/HANA_AFL100_102P_50-70000758.SAR

/usr/sap/install/1025/HANA_SERVER100_102_50-70000738.SAR

/usr/sap/install/1025/… (etc.)


To extract the files and move the signature files to their respective directories, execute the following commands from the /usr/sap/install/1025 directory.

../SAPCAR_0-80000935-linux -xvf HANA_AFL100_*-70000758.SAR

mv SIGNATURE.SMF SAP_HANA_AFL/

../SAPCAR_0-80000935-linux -xvf HANA_SERVER100_*-70000738.SAR

mv SIGNATURE.SMF SAP_HANA_DATABASE/


../SAPCAR_0-80000935-linux -xvf HANA_CLIENT100_*-70000737.SAR

mv SIGNATURE.SMF SAP_HANA_CLIENT/

mv SAP_HANA_CLIENT/ SAP_HANA_CLIENT.Linux64/


../SAPCAR_0-80000935-linux -xvf HANA_CLIENT100_*-70000784.SAR

mv SIGNATURE.SMF SAP_HANA_CLIENT/

mv SAP_HANA_CLIENT/ SAP_HANA_CLIENT.Linux32/

After this extraction, you can execute the HANA lifecycle management tool from the command line, GUI, or Web (for upgrades only).

Command Line

SAP_HANA_DATABASE/hdblcm

Graphical User Interface

SAP_HANA_DATABASE/hdblcmgui


Browser based (upgrade only)

Hope this helps a couple of people!

All the best,

Joerg.
