DISCLAIMER: The purpose of this blog is to provide guidance to fast track your SANDBOX conversion. Tool parameters are for shortest overall run time with maximum downtime. Every upgrade/conversion is different. The author will not take over any responsibility of the consequences this may cause.

System which is converted is SOH/EHP7/HDB at below patch level:

STEP 1: CHECK OPERATING SYSTEM

Recommended OS is SuSE Linux version 12 Patch 1
TIP: Please refer Notes below:
Note 2399995 – Hardware requirement for SAP HANA 2.0
Note 2235581 – SAP HANA: Supported Operating Systems.
Note 2205917 – SAP HANA DB: Recommended OS settings for SLES 12

You can check your operating system version as below:

sid-hdb-a4h:~ # cat /etc/SuSE-release
  SuSE-release SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 (x86_64)
  VERSION = 12
  PATCHLEVEL = 2       

STEP 2: UPGRADE HANA DATABASE

Minimum is HANA 2 Rev 33 or later as per release note for 1809. The files should be downloaded as per the blog t3 – maintenance planner.

First unpack the archive to folder HANA2_33, CLIENT_33 and LCAPPS_33 together if you need integrated LiveCache so it can be installed as a combined install. In case you already have other plugins you will have to apply them like AFL, etc.

sid-hdb:/sapmedia/ #SAPCAR -xvf IMDB_SERVER20_033_0-80002031.SAR
sid-hdb:/sapmedia/ #mv SAP_HANA_DATABASE HANA2_33
sid-hdb:/sapmedia/ #SAPCAR –xvf IMDB_CLIENT20_003_123-80002082.SAR
sid-hdb:/sapmedia/ #mv SAP_HANA_CLIENT HANA2_33_CLIENT
sid-hdb:/sapmedia/ #SAPCAR –xvf IMDB_LCAPPS_2033_0-20010426.SAR
sid-hdb:/sapmedia/ #mv SAP_HANA_LCAPPS HANA2_33_LCAPPS

TIP: Please refer note 2372809 - Guideline for Upgrading a SAP HANA 1.0 to SAP HANA 2.0 System. You cannot use hdblcm from rel 2. you will get message that "HDBLCM version '2.3.65.0' cannot be used to install or update additional components of SAP HANA Database version '1.00.093.00.1424770727'. Use the action 'update_components' of the resident HDBLCM under '/hana/shared/HDB'."
Refer note - 2438001 - Unable to perform a HANA database upgrade to revision 122.07 or higher to due installed SAP TRD AFL FOR HANA component
uninstall as root
sid-hdb:/hana/shared/HDB/hdblcm # ./hdblcm --uninstall


sid-hdb:/sapmedia/HANA1_122 # ./hdblcm

You can send feedback to SAP with this form: https://vhcalhdbdb:1129/lmsl/HDBLCM/HDB/feedback/feedback.html
Log file written to '/var/tmp/hdb_HDB_hdblcm_update_2018-10-24_19.22.48/hdblcm.log' on host 'sid-a4h'.

sid-hdb:/sapmedia/HANA2_33 # ./hdblcm

Upgrade HANA Database to Rev 33.

TIP: After Hana database is upgraded from HANA 1.0 to HANA 2.0 if you are using HANA Studio for access, please remove HANA 1.0 HDB and then Add HANA 2.0 database as SYSTEMDB and HDB.

STEP 4: CONVERSION USING SUM

Please extract it as below 2 commands:

as a4hadm
cd /usr/sap/A4H
SAPCAR -xvf /sapmedia/download/SUM20SP03_1-80002456.SAR
as root
ps –ef | grep –i sapup
/usr/sap/A4H/SUM/abap/SUMSTART confighostagent
TIP: Please check that your /windows/drivers/etc/host file contains entry with IP address mapped to hostname vhcala4hci.
c:\users\mahesh>type c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
10.20.130.140  vhcala4hci vhcala4hci.dummy.nodomain vhcala4hcs vhcala4hcs.dummy.nodomain vhcalhdbdb vhcalhdbdb.dummy.nodomain

Open Google Chrome browser (latest version recommended) Enter URL:
https://vhcala4hci:1129/lmsl/sumabap/E7H/doc/sluigui

In case you get screen below please click on Advanced and then “Proceed to vhcala4hci(unsafe)

TIP: If you get message that Page is Unresponsive just click on Wait.

Enter e7hadm/(password you used before) in the screen below

TIP: SUM MailNotifier can be used to get notified by eMail/SMS when SUM displays a dialog so you don’t have to frequently check it for long running phases. 
It can be configured at PREPROCESSING PHASE later when you have a break. 
You need a sender email account like summan@gmail.com with password, recipient email like john.doe@digiwatch.com or SMS text like 5551234567@vtext.com


After this you execute command as root:
vhcals4hci:~ # java -jar MailNotifierApp.jar properties=MailNotifierApp.props 

I had to add parameter mail.smtp.starttls.enable=true to the above command for gmail account. Also I had to login to gmail account and then execute link to allow less secure apps.

Refer Boris Rubarth's blog at end for more info.

EXTRACTION PHASE

TIP: If you get error manifest signature revoked download latest crlbag.p7s as per SAP Note 2491577 - SUM fails at phase PREP_EXTRACT/SCAN_DOWNLOADDIR with error message "SIGNATURE: manifest signature is revoked"

SUM will check all the SAR files in the download folder.
