What’s New?

Recover SAP HANA 1.0

With SAP HANA cockpit 2.0 SP 06, you can restore both SAP HANA 2.0 and 1.0 (SPS 12) databases. Before, only 2.0 databases could be restored using cockpit.

For the documentation, see

Configure Backup

As of SAP HANA Cockpit 2.0 SP 05, the SAP HANA Cockpit has a dedicated page (or app, if you prefer) for backup configuration.

You can use it to view or edit (tenant) database backup configuration settings.

SAP HANA cockpit > Manage Databases

SAP HANA cockpit > Manage Databases > Backup Configuration

      Hello Denys,


      i have a question about the screenshots of the your HANA cockpit at the point „Configure Backup“, we have installed the version SP06 and we dont find the configure backup Point under the Managed Databases, it is a development screenshot of SP07?

      Thanks for this great blog!

      Thanks, Gerd

      Curious. You can access Configure Backups from the system database Overview page > Manage Databases.

      The page (or app) was already introduced with cockpit SP 05 actually, cf.

      The SPS 03 release note references Configure Backups, which is why I included it in this blog.

      As always very interesting information from HANA Academy! Thank you!

      Please look at my blog post  about this topic too -

      It's my approach to catalogbackup rotation and cleaning.

      Your opinion is very important to me.
