Upgrading SAP HANA 1.0 to SAP HANA 2.0 – Key steps and recommendations


You must be Logged on to comment or reply to a post.
  • Hi SIlvia,

    I appreciate to provide support/guidance to the customers for the challenge of the upgrade from HANA 1.0 to HANA 2.0. But it seems like it is a little bit late 2 months before maintenance ends. Most customers have been planning for six months.

    Why not using openSAP or other free platforms to spread the knowledge for such an important topic? May be it is also a good idea to involve the user groups like DSAG and ASUG.

    I am also missing some more details such as an agenda with details (features, performance, tools etc.) or the target group => DBAs, developers, project manager etc.






    • Dear Jens,

      We decided to organize this short webcast because there is still a significant number of customers asking for guidance on this topic, althoug indeed, you are right, many customers should be in planning or already using SAP HANA 2.0 SP05.

      This is a high level overview, intended for Technical leads, or similar profiles who need to plan the upgrade. Technical knowledge is expected to understand the content.

      We will go through:

      • Short recap of maintenance strategy of SAP HANA
      • Hardware prerequisites for SAP HANA 2
      • OS prerequisites for for SAP HANA 2
      • Impact of moving to Multitenant Database Container
      • How to find a supported upgrade path
      • Capture and Replay feature
      • Short browse of the planning section of the upgrade guide
      • The 5 ways to manage the upgrade (eg with system replication..)
      • Description of a few post-upgrade steps

      Best regards




      • Dear Renaud,


        thanks for the details of the agenda. The transparency creates trust and greater interest.

        But I miss some important aspects - may be you can add them for all other customers:

        • change of the HANA client support / platforms
        • Plan stability feature
        • security aspects (port changes, LSS, security defaults)
        • changed system behaviour:
          • engines (HEX, ESX etc.)
          • 2679360 - Central Note for Behavioral Changes in SAP HANA
          • 2222219 - SAP HANA Errors and different Results due to Design Changes


        Best Regards,


        • Hello Jens,

          Thanks very much to take time to provide feedback and suggestions of topic to add. Each project/experience brings different lights

          I will provide your list of suggestions to my colleague who will deliver the session, so he can check if there a some of the aspects you are mentioning which are missing in the presentation. I provided an intermediate level summary.

          I know port changes is already included in the presentation. Also, I have not mentioned a short part on the SAP HANA cockpit which is also in the agenda.

          Best regards
