15. July 2016 – Never call me as root
SAP Note 2340501 states, that for some tools like hdbnsutil, landscapeHostConfiguration.py, systemReplicationStatus.py calls as user root will be prohibited beginning with SAP HANA revision 122.
The current versions (like 0.151 and 0.152.x) of the resource agents SAPHana and SAPHanaTopology already cover this situation. All calls are “forwarded” to user <sid>adm.
1. June 2016 – New fields
For SAP HANA SPS12 new additional fields have been added to the output of landscapeHostConfiguration.py. The version 0.152.17 (next maintenance update) will cover this using a parseable output format for SAP HANA begging from revision 111.
27. May 2016 – Don’t ask me that offline
SAP Note 2315257 explains why not to use some hdbnsutil options, when SAP HANA is offline. The version 0.152.17 (next maintenance update) will cover this and use the new introduced options for hdbnsutil. The interface changes described in SAP Note 2315257 are efefctive since SAP HANA rev 112.03.
