For all New Installation blogs the documents are available at
Here is the video for installation of previous version S4HANA 1610 FPS0 for reference:
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:
51051432_KERNEL (Optional, needed for separate web dispatcher install)
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/SWPM10SP19_7-20009701.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.
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 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/SUM10SP19_6-20006543.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 10.20.130.140 vhcals4hci vhcals4hci.dummy.nodomain vhcals4hcs vhcals4hcs.dummy.nodomain vhcalhdbdb vhcalhdbdb.dummy.nodomain
Open Google Chrome browser (latest version recommended) Enter URL:
In case you get screen below please click on Advanced and then “Proceed to vhcals4hci(unsafe)”
Enter s4hadm/(password you used before) in the screen below
TIP: If you get message that Page is Unresponsive just click on Wait.
Provide details of the stack.xml and it is good to download the file crlbag.p7s for archive verification so you know in advance if any file is corrupted.EXTRACTION PHASE
