Configuring SAP HANA One

Prerequisites:

  • Please note the IP address from aws marketplace and host name
  • Instance is running in AWS console and has passed 2X2 check.
  • Use Google Chrome (version 24 or higher) or Firefox Mozilla (version 18 or higher) web browser

Assign an Elastic IP Address

Assigning an Amazon EC2 Elastic IP Address (EIP) to your AWS instance eases the administration of SAP HANA One. Elastic IP addresses are static IP addresses that can be assigned to your instance and can also quickly be re-mapped to replacement instances if needed.

  • Log into the AWS console.
  • Select Elastic IPs from the left hand side of the page.

  • Select Allocate New Address and choose the network topology from the EIP used in list that matches the network topology of your SAP HANA Portal instance.

  • Important:If you deploy your instance into the EC2 classic topology, the Elastic IP address becomes unmapped when you stop your instance. Make a note of the IP address and re-map it each time you restart your instance. If you deployed your HANA instance into a Virtual private cloud, the Elastic IP address remains mapped unless you manually un-map it.
  • Select Associate Address and choose your AWS SAP HANA instance from the Instance list.

Configure HANA Studio

  1. For HANA One, add the following entry to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
    <EIP> hanaserver hanaserver.compute-1.amazonaws.com

Example:

xx.xx.xx.xxhanaserver hanaserver.compute-1.amazonaws.com

Where xx.xx.xx.xx is the EIP (Elastic IP).

EIP is the Elastic IP or Public name of your HANA One server.

Note: This step is required to allow Studio to be fully functional on Microsoft Windows. Add one entry at a time. For HANA One this step is no longer necessary once you upgrade HANA version.

The following steps are done automatically when you upgrade HANA within HANA One. However, if you change your IP or DNS name, you need to make the changes manually in the HANA Studio.

  • In the administration editor of HANA Studio, choose the Configuration tab. A list of all configuration files appears.
  • Expand the global.ini configuration file.
  • Select the section public_hostname_resolution and from the context menu choose Add Parameter. The Add Parameter Wizard opens.
  • Choose Next and enter the values map_<servername> in the Key field and your IP or public DNS in the Value field. For example, set the values as Key: map_hanaserver, Value: xx.xx.xx.xx if you use an IP address including an Elastic IP. If you use DNS as the value it could be ec2-xx-xx-xx- xx.compute-1.amazonaws.com

2. Launch the HANA studio and select Add System from the right-click menu.
3. Enter the Elastic IP Address or the Hostname of your SAP HANA AWS instance.
