Creating the SAP HANA Parameter File

You must create a parameter file when you perform certain types of backups and restores.

A parameter file is required for the following use cases:

  • Perform a cross-machine restore. This includes a restore for disaster recovery.

  • Perform a backup or restore for a multi-instance configuration.


  1. In the iDataAgent folder, on the host where you installed the SAP HANA agent, create the SAP HANA BACKINT parameter file.

  2. Create the /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig directory.

  3. To link the file to the specified location, on the command line, type the following command:

    ln -s /opt/commvault/iDataAgent/param /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    where param is the name of the parameter file.

  4. In the SAP HANA Studio, set the Backint data and log parameter files to the new parameter file.

Note: Enable the third-party log backup option. Set the option to true.
