Configuring SAP HANA Replication

For more information about the replication features that SAP supports, Go to the SAP website, HANA System Replication.

Important: If you have Commvault Service Pack 10 or earlier and you have a multinode SAP HANA database, then you must set the first node to a node that can successfully run hdbsql commands. After a "takeover" event, you must update the order of the nodes to ensure that you can run backups from the CommCell Console or from the Commvault scheduler. You can perform this operation by using the Commvault command line interface. For more information, see Modifying SAP HANA Instances Using the Commvault Command Line Interface.

For Commvault Service Pack 11 or higher, the Commvault SAP HANA agent automatically detects and manages SAP HANA takeovers so you no longer need to make manual changes.

Backups that you perform from SAP HANA Studio are not affected by the node order as long as the node appears on the instance details (Instance Properties dialog box, Details tab, Hana Database Instances box).


  1. Install the SAP HANA agent on the primary host and the secondary host.
  2. Create a pseudo client and add all the nodes to that pseudo client. The order must be the primary node and the secondary nodes.
  3. Create the SAP HANA parameter file for the SAP HANA database.

What to Do Next

In SAP HANA Studio, configure backint for the database.
