Configuring the SAP HANA 2.0 including the Express Edition global.ini File to Use the backint Interface

  • View, or edit the global.ini files for the SYSTEMDB database and all tenant databases and make sure that there are entries that set the catalog backup to true, and set the backup parameter file.

    The entries look similar to the following example.

    The SID is SID and has a SYSTEMDB and 2 tenant databases (TN1, TN2).

    # cat /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    The first tenant database global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/<TN1>/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    The second tenant database global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/<TN2>/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    Example

    In this example, the SID is HXE and has a SYSTEMDB and 2 tenant databases (HX1, HXE).

    The SYSTEMDB global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    The first tenant database global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/DB_HX1/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    The second tenant database global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/DB_HXE/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

After you set the backint interface for SAP HANA 2.0, including the Express Edition, the catalog backup does not use the backint interface.Before you perform backup operations, configure the catalog parameters in the global.ini file.

Procedure

Single Database

  • View, or edit the global.ini file and make sure that there is an entry that sets the catalog backup to true, and sets the backup parameter file.

    The entries look similar to the following example, where SID represents the database SID.

    # cat /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/global.ini
    [backup]
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    Example

    # cat /usr/sap/DB1/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/global.ini
    [backup]
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/DB1/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

Multitenant Database Container

  • View, or edit the global.ini files for the SYSTEMDB database and all tenant databases and make sure that there are entries that set the catalog backup to true, and set the backup parameter file.

    The entries look similar to the following example.

    The SID is SID and has a SYSTEMDB and 2 tenant databases (TN1, TN2).

    # cat /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    The first tenant database global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/<TN1>/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    The second tenant database global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/<TN2>/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    Example

    In this example, the SID is HXE and has a SYSTEMDB and 2 tenant databases (HX1, HXE).

    The SYSTEMDB global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    The first tenant database global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/DB_HX1/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

    The second tenant database global.ini file.

    # cat /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/custom/config/DB_HXE/global.ini
    catalog_backup_using_backint = true
    catalog_backup_parameter_file = /usr/sap/HXE/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param
