For all New Installation blogs the documents are available at MobileDocLink and VideoPlayList.

Here is the video for this blog:

STEP 1: OPERATING SYSTEM

It is recommended to install SuSE Linux version 11.4 ,
TIP: Please refer SAP Note 2195019 – Linux: Using SAP kernel 748 and higher or SAPinst 749 and higher on RHEL 6, OL6 and SLES 11.
You can check your operating system version as below:

sid-hdb-s4h:~ # cat /etc/SuSE-release
  SuSE-release SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
  VERSION = 11
  PATCHLEVEL = 4

STEP 2: USE EXISTING HANA DATABASE (OPTION1)

If you already have a database, please patch the database to 122_02 or higher and you can create container using command:

CREATE DATABASE HDB SYSTEM USER PASSWORD Xxxxxxxn

It takes about 2 minutes to create database with this command.

STEP 2: NEW HANA DATABASE (OPTION 2)

Please use commands below. You could alternatively use hdblcmgui, I used below procedure because hdblcmgui did not allow me to change instance number to 02.

First unpack the archive in folder 51051151_HANASP12_4

====================================================LINUX SCREEN START
sid-hdb:/sapmedia/51051151_HANASP12_4 # SAPCAR –xvf IMDB_SERVER100_122_4-10009569.SAR
sid-hdb:/sapmedia/51051151_HANASP12_4/SAP_HANA_DATABASE # ./hdbinst


...............
...............
Installation done
Log file written to '/var/tmp/hdb_HDB_install_2016-11-01_13.35.45/hdbinst.log' on host 'sid-hdb'.

After installation of HANA database in case you would like to install integrated livecache, please add the plugin as below,unpack HANA DATABASE LCAPPS archive:

sid-hdb:/sapmedia/51051151_HANASP12_3 # SAPCAR –xvf IMDB_LCAPPS100_122P_40-20010426.SAR
sid-hdb:/sapmedia/51051151_HANASP12_3/SAP_HANA_LCAPPS # ./hdbinst


======================================================LINUX SCREEN ENDS

After installation, logon to HANA Database using HANA Studio and add system
Host Name : <your hostname or ip>
Instance Number: 02
Click Next and in the following screen enter User Name SYSTEM and Password
Click on Finish to exit.

TIP: Please change the log mode if you don’t want to be spend time on log maintenance:
In HANA studio –> Configuration –> global.ini –> persistence and set the parameter log_mode to overwrite. When you change the log mode, you must restart the database system to activate the changes. It is also recommended that you perform a full data backup. You can also set the log_mode to ‘overwrite’ using the following SQL-Statement:

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION (‘global.ini’, ‘SYSTEM’) SET (‘persistence’, ‘log_mode’) = ‘normal‘ WITH RECONFIGURE;

STEP 3: S/4HANA BASE INSTALLATION USING SWPM

Please extract media files in folders as mentioned in New Installation of S/4HANA 1610 – Part 1 – media download using Maintenance Planner in folders:
51050947_EXP1
51050947_LANG       (Optional)
51051135_SCM          (Optional)
51051522_CLIENT
51051432_KERNEL   (Optional, needed for separate web dispatcher install)
51051151_HANASP12_4
download
I have extracted all above under folder /sapmedia.

Extract the SWPM SAR file as below
 sid-hdb:/ # cd /install
 sid-hdb:/install # /sapmedia/SAPCAR -xvf /sapmedia/download/SWPM10SP18_4-20009701.SAR

You should get message at the end of this that
 SAPCAR: 1584 files(s) extracted

Start x-Windows software such as Exceed or X-ming and set the DISPLAY variable needed to confirm x-Windows is working.

I have edited file to change SID from S4A to S4H due to SID restriction on my Maintenance Planner.

TIP: In case the following components are included in stack.xml file you should remove them as they are not needed for 1610 and will cause error in SUM – Not valid for 1610.
Prepackage@Takt: SAP_UI 751: SP 0001 and  Prepackage@Takt: SAP_GWFND 751: SP 0001

Execute combined installation of SWPM + SUM in single command line as below:

sid-hdb:/install#./sapinst SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME=vhcals4hci SAPINST_STACK_XML=/sapmedia/download/sapmedia/download/MP_Stack_1000109478_2038a.xml

I am showing only the important screens as most screens are self explanatory. Select Standard System from path below:

TIP: In the above screen if you see all choices to install other software then there is some issue with your stack.xml file and you should investigate.

Click on Next and Select Custom

Click on Next and enter name of SID. In this case S4H:

Click on Next and leave radio button at default No for Import ABAP Transports

Click on Next and enter the details of SUM as /sapmedia/download/SUM10SP18_4-20006543.SAR

Click on Next and enter password of System Administrator Xxxxxxxn

Click on Next and select additional languages as needed and define media path

Click on Next and select radio button – Individual Key (Recommended for Productive Systems)

On the Next screen Capture details of storage Key ID and Value

Click on Next screen as we do not have any additional transports with SWPM

Click on Next we will not install any additional languages besides English and German

Here is the summary of all options
Click on Next to confirm and begin the installation.
IF THERE IS NO ERROR YOU CAN TAKE A BREAK FOR 6 HOURS


TIP: The high hitter phases for time duration were Import ABAP and Create DDL Views (RUTDDLSCREATE). The system and used memory for database was high. So for MDC and MCOD scenario, free up memory by unloading tables in other tenants/databases. In MCOS scenario please shutdown other databases. The video shown at the beginning has clock showing the time in fast forward as the installation progresses.

Here are some milestones with starting point after all sapinst screen inputs are completed. For higher end systems the time required will be lower, the figures are only to be used as guidance.

STEP 4: ADDON INSTALLATION USING SUM

As we executed combined SWPM+SUM you should have filesystem /usr/sap/S4H/SUM. If not, don’t worry, please extract it as below 2 commands:

as s4hadm
cd /usr/sap/S4H
SAPCAR -xvf /sapmedia/download/SUM10SP18_4-20006543.SAR
as root
ps –ef | grep –i sapup
/usr/sap/S4H/SUM/abap/SUMSTART confighostagent
TIP: Please check that your /windows/drivers/etc/host file contains entry with IP address mapped to hostname vhcals4hci.
c:\users\mahesh>type c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

STEP 5A (OPTION1): S/4HANA RELEASE INFORMATION NOTE

TIP: PLEASE NOTE THIS BLOG AND BELOW TRANSPORT IS ONLY FOR S/4HANA 1611 FPS0 AND NOT TO BE APPLIED TO 1611 FPS1 AND LATER SYSTEMS.

I have provided transport S4HK900002 for notes contained in Note 2346431 Release Information Note. It is available at link and there is a document provided Procedure_for_S4HK900002.pdf

The transport S4HK900002 has been very carefully prepared on a clean system using SPAM/SAINT method of addon import instead of SUM and only contains notes as described in list upto 2016-11-08 and does not include transport 2356364 (currently removed), and also does not include notes from SEM-BCS or IS-RETAIL. Reasonable checks have been done with system with imported transport. Please feel free to report any issues. I have not yet been able to test this transport on system installed with SUM.

TIP: Before importing the transport please check component levels as described in the document and also carry out manual steps as described in the document. You may also like to take a backup before applying this transport.The difference between SAINT and SUM method is in case of SUM Note 2344014 – SPAU Adjustment for R3TR CLAS deliveries is already applied at SUM tool and is included again in transport so to avoid error that object was repaired in the system you should confirm repairs in SE03 before importing transport.

This transport is only meant for sandbox and use it at your OWN RISK !. I do not take any responsibility for issues arising from using the transport. If you are concerned about risk please follow manual procedure as described in STEP 5B.

STEP 5B (OPTION 2): S/4HANA RELEASE INFORMATION NOTE

    Hi Mahesh,

    I am installing the S/4 1610. I am in step of providing input R3load process and Code page. Once I click next it gives me below error: Till now I did not get Livecache installation option but still its getting failed with GET_LIVECACHE_NODE error. Any suggestion on this.

      Hi,
      please have you resolved the issue?

      I’m currently have faced the same issue as you in the step: “Configuration of SAP liveCache with SAP HANA”.
      After uncheck “Install liveCache for SAP System” and “Next” button, the following error appear.
      I’m using SWPM SP18 PL3.
      Our HANA DB SID is “H26” and “HSR” is SID of new tenant, which will be created.

      An error occurred while processing option SAP S/4HANA 1610 > SAP S/4HANA Server > SAP HANA Database > SAP Systems > Application Server ABAP > Standard System > Standard System( Last error reported by the step: Error during execution of HdbCmdClazz ‘GET_LIVECACHE_NODE’ : class com.sap.hdb.sl.lib.utils.cmd.clazz.CmdClazzParameterFactory, parameters received.

        Thanks for information. I had issue and had to uncheck “Install LiveCache for SAP System”. After unchecking the installation was completed.

        If you want to install LiveCache you have to install HANA database Plugin LCAPPS before starting sapinst.

        Download from SAP HANA PLATFORM EDIT 1.0/ENTRY BY COMPONENT/HANA LCAPPS

        file IMDB_LCAPPS100P_30-20010426.SAR 

        and apply the plugin.

    Hi Mahesh,

    I am looking for post steps after the S/4HANA conversion. Is the note 2346431 applicable even after conversion or is it specific to only installation. Also can you please let me know the post steps that are required after conversion.

    Regards,
    Jyothi

    Hello Mahesh,

    You are saying that it is recommended to  install SuSE Linux version 11.4.
    What about SuSE Linux version 12.1 , both Linux versions are supported are supported, Why Is it preferable to install SuSE Linux version 11.4. ?

    Thanks

    1. Mahesh Sardesai Post author

      Hi Raoul,

      Please refer to Note 2195019 – Linux: Using SAP kernel 748 and higher or SAPinst 749 and higher on RHEL 6, OL6 and SLES 11 for OS requirements. SLES 11 specific info is here.

      On SUSE 11.3 SWPM will prevent install if runtime libraries are not installed.

      ====================================================================SLES11

      The libstdc++ package that is required is delivered with SLES 11 SP4. Update your entire system to SP4.

      In some cases it is not possible to update the entire system to SP4. (We know about issues with Fusion-IO drives. These will be fixed on Fusion-IO side soon.)

      SUSE provides the required runtime environment also for SLES 11 SP2 and SP3 (Download at http://download.suse.com/Download?buildid=DdjhJT3YGX4~). In this case we recommend to install this gcc48 runtime (for instructions see SAP note 2228351).

      Note: SLES 11 SP2 and SP3 also run the current 748-750 kernels without issueing errors mentioned above. But this may change in future patch levels or in SAP kernel versions > 750. It is recommended to update SLES 11 to SP4 completely.

    Hi Mahesh,

    I installed LCAPPS 1.00.122.040.466926 before sapinst using SWPM10SP18_4-20009701.SAR, but it still appeares the error message “AFL Role does not exist”.

    Currently the temporary solution is only “remove checkmark on Install liveCache for SAP System”?

    Thanks and regards

      Thanks for info. I tried with SP19_PL0 and it worked perfectly without any issue but this is currently only SAP internal.

      I will check again after RTC and update this blog.

        Hi Mahesh

        I delete all database components and re-install database include lcapps (which versions are 122), and start sapinst using SWPM10SP18_4-20009701.SAR, there is no error about liveCache related,

        There is no compatibility between database 121 and lcapps 122.

        I think it is tricky point.

        Thanks and regards,
        Hiroko

    Hi Mahesh,

    Thanks for the blog, we did face the issue at MAIN_TRANSEXEC/MVNTAB_TRANS phase. But we passed through by changing Modeflag at the DB level.

    I have  a question regarding integrating livecache after 1610 installation. We have completed installation without integrating Livecache. Now post installation, can you tell us the procedure to integrate livecache in the system.

      1. Mahesh Sardesai Post author

        You can pass the error after executing statement below but it is recommended to use latest SUM:

        UPDATE SAPABAP1.DDXTT SET MODEFLAG = ‘V’ WHERE MODEFLAG = ‘M’;

        commit;

      Hi Tinu,

      You need to create DBCON-entries for the connection LCA, LDA and LEA (see SAP Note 1825703 – Migration SCM on SAP HANA with integrated SAP HANA liveCache ), execute the GRANT of this note. After this he should run program SLCA_INIT_FOLLOW_UP and /SAPAPO/OM_CREATE_LC_TABLES.
      You should schedule jobs: /sapapo/om_reorg_daily in each client which is liveCache relevant (per default all clients beside 000) one time every day, /sapapo/om_delete_old_simsess in one client which is LC-relevant every 30 minutes, and /sapapo/om_lcaalerts in one client every 12 hours.

    Hi there

    I force the error the phase “start SUM” using PL3, and PL4, the pre-requisit of SAPK-200AGINUIMDC001 is required SAP_BASIS 740, but the SAP S4 HANA is SAP Basis 750 system, could you provide the schedule to release to customer PL5?
    And could you tell me if we stack the phase “start SUM”, how to restart at the phase with PL5?

    Of cource, I create the customer message and wait to reply from SAP officially.

    Thanks and best regards,
    Hiroko

          I installed successfully using SUM SP18PL6. At the end there are 3 tables that may need SE14 – Force Conversion but otherwise even its faster the wait time of 1hr 30 mins was just 1 hr.

            Thank your reply.

            I want to know more detail about “SE14 – Force Conversion”.

            I still force the error during the phase “Start SUM (PREP_EXTRACT/BEGIN_PRE)” -10104: Invalid value for KEY (DEFAULT).

            The option of database secure is “default”.

            I try to install choose the option “Indivisual Key” now.

            Thanks and regards,

      Hi Hiroko,

      For Se14- Force Conversion here are the steps.

      Enter tCode SE14, obj name and select Tables. Click on Edit
      At this point you cna go to Menu option Extras and select Database Object -> Check and Runtime Object -> Check to know more about the issue in terms of differences.
      Then select Menu option Extras, select Force Conversion.

    Hi Mahesh,

    We are facing a weird behavior with the Update of 1610 with the PAS and the HANA DB on different Servers.

    We are using SUM 1.0 18 PL6, PAS is on Windows Server 2012 R2, and HANA DB ( with Version 1.00.122.04.1478575636 (fa/hana1sp12) ) is on SLES 11 SP4.

    In the Current Phase: PREP_INIT/HDB_CHK_PRIVILEGES, the SUM keeping loading forever and by check the logs HDBSLLIB_CHK_PRIVILEGES.LOG, we get the below only:

    SAPup> Starting subprocess in phase ‘HDB_CHK_PRIVILEGES’ at 20161208113649

    I hope that we can get any clue.

      Hi Mohamed,

      Please check this is not due to the issue of rdisp/msserv_internal and rdisp/msserv not set in DEFAULT.PFL. I have reported this issue and is confirmed to be fixed in SUM19/20. If it is this situation tail the last SLOG and you will find it is showing messages of waiting continuously and system is not doing anything. You may be able to continue just by moving the parameter and not even bouncing SAP.

      This should have been checked at initialization phase.

    Hello Mohamed Awny I’m facing exactly the same issue.
    I’ve checked DEFAULT.PFL and found rdisp/msserv_internal and rdisp/msserv are set correctly in DEFAULT.PFL.
    Have you managed to resolve your issue and continue the update?

    kind regards,

    Hi Mahesh,

    Thank you for the excellent blog.
    I have a query. We have upgraded from S/4 1511 to 1610 recently and are going to use PP/DS but this seems to need Integrated Livecache for HANA. However, We didnt install S/4 System with Integrated Livecache for HANA Option. Now we have installed LCAPPS plugin in HANA System DB 122.42 on HANA DB Version 122.04.

    However, We find no SAP Notes / Steps on how to integrate this Integrated Livecache in SAP. Can you please suggest if there is already some SAP note on this ?

    I will also open an SAP Incident to clarify this scenario.

    Thanks and Best Regards,
    Sanjay Sahita

          Hi Sanjay,

          We have also upgraded from 1511 to 1610 however we are unsure whether we have to manually configure the content upgrade or whether this can be done by installing building blocks.  Specific areas are EWM and PP/DS.  In terms of PP/DS, do you know whether the content configuration needs to be done manually?

           

          Thanks,

    Dears,

     

    When we try to make a local copy client from client “000” to the new client “100” the copy client is finished with :

    Completed with DDIC errors as below:

    Hi Mahesh,
    Hightly appreciate your blog.  I’m facing an issue when activating Best Practice content.
    I copied BP content BP_OP_ENTPR_S4HANA1611_USV3 into ZBP_OP_ENTPR_S4HANA1611_USV3 without changing any building block and tried to activate ZBP_OP_ENTPR_S4HANA1611_USV3.
    At the begining the activation stopped at building block J98(DMS DELTA) for ‘Define document type’ with error ‘missing text data entires for language 2.’ which release language EN,DE,ZH,ZF were selected in ZBP_OP_ENTPR_S4HANA1611_USV3. I changed the status of SIMG_VC_DVS10 and continued the activation. Unfortunately, same error occurs and activation stopped at building block J61 (XX) SIMG_SD_PARTNER.

    The activation stopped with error message ‘missing text data entires for language 1.’ after changing released language of ZBP_OP_ENTPR_S4HANA1611_USV3 from EN,DE,ZH,ZF to EN,DE.

    Is it really issues about released language of BP?
    Any suggestion would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

      Hi Elina,

      This is a question for Best Practices blog where you have posted same question.

      The default content that comes with transport has all languages. You need to follow step 14 so this is in line with installed languages befor activation is run.

      Did you perform STEP 14: SE38, run report /SMB/REMOVE_NOTINST_LANG_IMG

    Hi Mahesh

    Thank you for your informative blog. We ran into an error that we do not know the reason for. When we run the Software Update Manager, we get to 6% when it stops with the following error:

    “Severe error(s) occurred in phase PREP_PARSETUP_BATCHCHK _IMP!

    Last error code set: RFC error system DEV nr )) function ‘SUBST_START_BATCHJOB’ failed with code 5 key NO_BATCH_SERVICE: ID:PO Type:E Number:238:

    Any input would be appreciated.

      We solved the problem by redoing the installation. Not sure what the problem was, but there were two entries in the /etc/host file for the ip address of the host. We deleted the incorrect one before we did the new installation.

      Hi,

       

      Hi,

      This issue has been solved for Upgrade/Conversion to S/4HANA by applying note 2284857 – Number ranges – trace. Please note that there are manual steps for this note.

      Execute report ZNOTE_2284857 by selecting ‘Update & Activate’ option (Step 2).

    Hello Mahesh

     

    Its a very nice blog indeed

     

    We ran the same installlation on SUSE linux 11.4 SLES for SaP and HANA 1.0 122.07 on distributed instances

    The Import ABAp ran 5 hours with REPOSRC import taking 3.5 hrs

     

    Moreover the RUTDDLSCREATE is running last three hours no update here

     

    Am I missing any Optimisation apart from std linix OS parametrisation

     

    Thanks

      Hi Andreas,

      Installation will take more time depending on network bandwidth between App and Database servers. I haven’t tried installation to arrive at optimal figures. It is not significantly higher for ABAP / REPOSRC import.

      The time taken for RUTDDLACREATE seems OK.

      They are not into NOTES directory of SWPM10SP19_4.

      Thank you

    Hello Mahesh,

    First of all, excellent job!!

    Have you an idea about this issue: No such file ‘/SWPM19_4/NOTES/KSNW751SR0SP00.SAP’)?

    The data and cofile files do not exist in folder NOTES, I’ve check a few previous SWPM versions and I’m not able to find them.

    They are used in the “SPAM update” phase,

    Thank you

        Hello,

        Running SWPM without XML file could be an option, there are not the steps TMS, SPAM/SAINT update, Start SUM, etc and it looks like in this way that files are not needed.

        I will let you know the result.

        Regards

    Hi guys

    My solution was to start the SWPM from the beginning (new run) and in the step Configuring Transport management for Single System I chose NO ABAP TMS Configuration during installation.

    That caused that in my first attempt for installation with SWPM contained 36 phases. In my second attempt SWPM contained 30 phases.

    Also in my second attempt when I chose NO ABAP TMS Configuration during installation there was no step for choosing SPAM update. SPAM update was left out.

    So for me the solution was to avoid or not allow the TMS configuration and SPAM update.

    I think you can do it later with SUM. I hope so…

    Hi,

    Issue is fixed for me with selecting option “No ABAP TMS Configuration during Installation” for TMS configuration.

    Confirmed! You can use the SWPM with XML option, you can save some time configuring SWPM. You have to select  “No ABAP TMS Configuration during Installation”, SWPM won’t ask for that file. You can configure TMS, Import SPAM Update and Configure SUM later.

    Hi guys

    Just one question.

    What clients do you have as default after new installation of S/4 HANA system?

    I can see only client 000.

    Shouldn’t it be standard SAP clients after installation 000, 001, 066?

      Hi Binosh,

      SUM tool misunderstood my server as HA and created ERS parameter in the temp instance profile which it uses during sum upgrade, so I have replaced the temporary instance profile by the old instance profile and restarted the server and repeated the phase in SUM which worked for me.

      Regards

      Shashikant

    Great blog Mahesh! After successfully completed the installation. I tried to logon as SAP* with PASS, but it did not take it and now is locked due to too many attempts. Any suggestion? Thanks
