6.0 Setting Up an SAP HANA Cluster

You can use a YaST wizard to set up SAP HANA or SAP S/4HANA Database Server clusters according to best practices, including SAP HANA system replication. A summary of the setup options is given in Section 1.1.3, Simplified SAP HANA System Replication Setup.

The following Best Practices from the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications Resource Library (https://www.suse.com/products/sles-for-sap/resource-library/) contain setup instructions:

  • Performance-optimized scenario and multi-tier/chained scenario: Setting up a SAP HANA SR Performance Optimized Infrastructure

  • Cost-optimized scenario: Setting up a SAP HANA SR Cost Optimized Infrastructure

IMPORTANT: Wizard Can Only Be Used for Initial Configuration

The YaST wizard described in the following can only be used for the initial cluster configuration.

To reconfigure a cluster, use the separate YaST module Cluster (available from package yast2-cluster). For more information about its usage, see Administration Guide, Part Installation, Setup and Upgrade, Chapter Using the YaST Cluster Module at https://www.suse.com/documentation/sle-ha-12/.
