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.
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(S/4HANA 1809FPS0) Rev 36(S/4HANA 1809FPS1) 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.
To upgrade HANA database, you cannot use hdblcm from rel 2. you will get message that
“HDBLCM version ‘188.8.131.52’ cannot be used to install or update additional components of SAP HANA Database version ‘1.00.093.00.1424770727’”. Solution:Use the action ‘update_components’ of the resident HDBLCM under ‘/hana/shared/HDB'”
Also in case yu have HANA database addons, 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 ............... Updating Resident hdblcm... Cleaning up old installation of Resident hdblcm... Installing Resident hdblcm... Updating SAP HANA Instance Integration on Local Host... Updating Component List... SAP HANA components updated 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 & HDB.
Please refer Note 2600030 – Parameter Recommendations in SAP HANA Environments for parameter recommendations. This note contains check scripts which detect SAP HANA version, SAP product installed, etc. and give specific parameter recommendations.
Also refer Note 2469025 – How-To: Upgrading to SAP HANA 2.0
STEP 3: CONVERSION USING SUM
This option allows to switch database host only, while keeping the same application server host. It requires HANA DB install on Target host prior to starting SUM tool.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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with password, recipient email like email@example.com or SMS text like firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
If you get error above stopsap, update HANA Client to required version, and then startsap
