    Hello Adarsh,

    thanks for this blog. Lama is used for regularly Systemcopies. If you perform a systemcopy e.g. from a productive HANA Cluster to a Quality assurance HANA Cluster you have to decluster the HANA Cluster on the target QA. Is there a Standard functionality in Lama 3.0 to decluster and rebuild the Cluster automatically after the successful restore to the target?

    Thank you,

      Hello Florian,


      Could you please explain what do you mean by a “cluster” in this context ?

      Are you talking about a classic HA cluster like MSCS or HP Service Guard etc, Or, are you talking about HANA System Replication setup ?


      Best Regards,

    Hi Adarsh,

    you are right, i should have explained. I’m talking about the Systemreplication reclustering.

    Another problem that we encounter at the moment with LAMA 3.0 is the poor performance in Export/Import. Is there a possibility to increase parallel processes e.g. during User Exp/Imp, Customer Table Exp/Imp, …?
