SAP HANA via Salt Formula fails to install HANA database
This document (000021163) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
When registering a salt bundle client to the SUSE Manager Server and applying the SAP HANA formula through high-state on the client, it finishes successfully but the HANA database fails to install.
1. The packages python3-shaptools and shaptools need to be installed on the client, and if the symlink is missing on the client follow these next steps:
- Create symlink on the client and then apply the highstate again:
# ln -s /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/shaptools /usr/lib/venv-salt-minion/lib/python3.10/site-packages/shaptools
- The output must be as follows:
# ll /usr/lib/venv-salt-minion/lib/python3.10/site-packages/shaptools lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 42 Aug 1 14:03 /usr/lib/venv-salt-minion/lib/python3.10/site-packages/shaptools -> /usr/lib /python3.6/site-packages/shaptools
2. Run the following command on the SUSE Manager Server and ensure the hostname in the SAP HANA formula matches the host output:
# salt 'clienthostname' grains.item host
Hostname mismatch and the missing symlink causes the SAP HANA database to not install correctly on the client.
