    Indeed a good news!

    However when looking to the details I still see some restrictions at least for HANA on POWER

    The Solution Manager 7.2 ABAP stack on HANA DB 2.0 is support on both LINUX on POWER BIG ENDIAN and LITTLE ENDIAN!
    However the Java stack is “currently” support only on LINUX on POWER BIG ENDIAN which is not support on SUSE 12

    Means we have 2 options:

    1. One LPAR for all: BIG INDIAN  (ABAP+JAVA+ HANA DB 2.0) on SUSE 11
    2. Two LPARs:
      – BIG INDIAN: JAVA + HANA DB 2.0 on SUSE 11

    When can we expect that JAVA stack is released also on SUSE 12 with LITTEL ENDIAN?

    With regards,

      Hi Abdelhadi,

      it is not possible to run HANA 2.0 on Linux on Power BE. Please read note 2235581 (SAP HANA: Supported Operating Systems). HANA 2.0 is connected to SLES12 – Intel and PowerPC:


      What you can do is connect an application server running on Linux on Power SLES11 BE to a HANA 2.0:

      But regarding the SolMan Java stack (J2EE ENGINE SERVERCORE 7.40) the PAM currently shows only SLES11 BE as supported client plattform. This may be connected to the JVM 6.1 support. I will double check this.

        Seems to be that the information are not consistent:
        1367498 – SAP JVM installation prerequisites
        2339183 – New prerequisites for SAP JVM 8.1 on RHEL 6 or SLES 11
        Currently only SAP JVM 6.1 is supported for SolMan according PAM.

    Hello Jens,

    Thank you for the update!

    We prefer to have all SOLMAN 7.2 server components (JAVA, ABAP and HANA) on one LPAR, with the given restrictions with HANA DB2.0 it is currently not possible 🙁

    Best regards.

    We’re currently running SolMan 7.2 on a RHEL 7 VM (both ABAP and Java instances) and connecting to a HANA 1.0 database on another instance.

    Are we good just to upgrade the HANA instance to HANA 2.0, or is there something will need to be done on the App side of things as well?
