NetApp integration with SAP Landscape Management

Updated October 2020

 

NetApp® Storage Services Connector (SSC) enables storage provisioning for SAP Landscape Management (LaMa). NetApp SSC is an implementation of the interface between LaMa and NetApp Storage Controllers. NetApp SSC enables LaMa to create space-efficient clones of SAP systems that are configured in LaMa.

The Technical Report “Integrating NetApp ONTAP Systems with SAP Landscape Management” (TR-4018) [find it on NetApp’s web page] provides IT administrators and operational staff with information on the integration of NetApp shared storage with SAP Landscape Management. Its detailed examples will help to streamline the implementation and reduce risks.

  • Fixed Issues:
    • BURT 1275003 – LaMa shows the wrong volume or storage pool sizes

  • Hi Bernd,

    We are planning to have NFS attached NetApp storage to integrated with SAP LaMa (via SSC). Does NFS attached NetApp storage support Windows OS based SAP systems (managed nodes)?

     

    Thanks & Regards,

    Sanjoy

    • Hi Sanjoy,

      while NetApp SSC for LaMa supports NFS, SAP on Windows is not supported with NFS.

      Therefore not a supported combination.
