Starting the HANA DB cluster resource (for ex: rsc_HA0_HDB00) consumed a long time, and failed with a timeout error. However, it can be successfully started manually (outside the cluster control) while the cluster was in maintenance mode. 


Extend the timeout parameter for the HANA DB resource for both stop and start, for example, from exiting one (3600 sec.) to a new one (ex:7200 sec.).
1. Enable cluster maintenance mode
# crm maintenance on

2. In case the cluster reports an error due to failure to start, then "cleanup" any failures before disabling the cluster maintenance mode. This will avoid restarting the HANA DB by the cluster
# crm resource cleanup
3.Edit the cluster configuration to update the timeout parameter of the start and stop operations.
# crm config edit
primitive rsc_HA0_HDB00 ocf:suse:SAPHana \
        op start interval=0 timeout=3600 \
        op stop interval=0 timeout=3600 \
primitive rsc_HA0_HDB00 ocf:suse:SAPHana \
        op start interval=0 timeout=7200 \
        op stop interval=0 timeout=7200 \

4. Disable cluster maintenance mode
# crm maintenance off


The HANA DB failed to start by the cluster within the designed start timeout. The start timeout needs to be extended.
The below errors will be reported in the logs, which show the start operation for the HANA DB resource for this node ended with the failed status due to time out.
pacemaker-execd[xxx]:  warning: rsc_HA0_HDB00_start_0 process (PID xxx) timed out
