In certain situations on an SAPHanaSR scale-up system replication cluster the resource agent´s check about "hana system replication is in sync or not" times out and results in following:

a) Attribute hana_<SID>_sync_state to become "SFAIL"

b) message logged similar to:
2021-02-18T23:41:28.064098+00:00 hanadb2 SAPHana(rsc_SAPHana_HN1_HDB03)[10598]: WARNING: HANA_CALL timed out after 5 seconds running command ' --site=S3'



For database version HANA 1.0:
No resolution available for the scale-up package SAPHanaSR.
The included there does not work with HANA 1.0.
Besides that HANA 1.0 is end of regular support.

For database version HANA 2.0:
Implement srHook as defined.

For SLES for SAP 12:

For SLES for SAP 15:


The issue is caused by a low timeout value of check of status of HANA system replication as defined in the SAPHana resource agent. This timeout definition is required for backward compatibility purpose. Cluster relies on this value to show the status of sync  between primary and secondary HANA. If it fails because of timeout, it gives a wrong impression that sync has failed which may not be the case. srHook implementation ensures that cluster now does not rely on sync_state value and instead it gets the status of  sync from srHook attributes.
