Step 2: Install the SAP HANA Agent

To set up your environment, you must install the SAP HANA Agent.

Step 3: Configure Your SAP HANA Environment

Note: The following functionality applies to Commvault SP 10 and later. When you perform your first backup, the Commvault software automatically performs the following configuration. For information on how to verify the changes, see Verifying the automatic update of the global.ini file and SAP HANA parameter file?

  • Creates a symbolic link that points to a parameter file created by Commvault called param under the SAP /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/ directory.
  • Creates a symbolic link that points to the Commvault backint binary with SAP HANA hdbbackint under the SAP /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt directory.
  • Updates the global.ini file with the correct parameters based on your Multitenant Database Container configuration, for example SAP HANA 1.0 or 2.0.
  • For SAP HANA 2.0 configurations, updates the SAP HANA catalog_backup_parameter_file and catalog_backup_using_backint parameters in the global.ini file. For more information, see Verifying the global.ini File.

Step 4: Configure Your Environment

  1. Open the CommCell Console.
  2. Configure a storage device.
  3. If you have not done so already, configure a storage policy.
  4. Create a SAP HANA pseudo client.
