When starting the SAPHanaTopology resource, it runs into a timeout and reports the following:

In /usr/lib/ocf/resource.d/suse/SAPHanaController change the line:
# TODO: PRIO9: something more dynamic than 3600 seconds in WaitforStarted
    output=$($SAPCONTROL -nr $InstanceNr -function WaitforStarted 3600 1)

# TODO: PRIO9: something more dynamic than 3600 seconds in WaitforStarted
    output=$($SAPCONTROL -nr $InstanceNr -function WaitforStarted 7200 1)

Issue has been resolved in the following version (or higher):

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for SAP Applications 15): SAPHanaSR-ScaleOut-0.180.1-3.19.1
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP  Applications 12:  SAPHanaSR-ScaleOut-0.180.1-3.23.1


In some environments the SAP Hana database needs more then the hard-coded 3600 seconds timeout to start.
