Preparing system for SAP HANA installation :
Choosing hostname :
restrictions that apply to host names in SAP systems, see "SAP Note 611361
- Hostnames of SAP servers". Basic rule as per this note :
Maximum length of the hostname: up to 13 characters
for SAP rel. 4.6 or higher
In our case the
hostname is "webserver".
Prepare the required file system :
We need following
mandatory file system to install SAP HANA.
Before you go ahead
and create the mandatory file system,make sure you have enough space/storage
allocated. Since we are making a sandbox system for educational purpose , I
have chosen following low configuration .
RAM : 30 GB (Minimum
is 24 GB , otherwise the installer will throw error)
storage(SSD) : 65 GB total.
20 GB for root
15 GB for the
20 GB for Data
10 GB for Log.
Data Storage : 4
Log Storage : Equal
Let's say your
system requirement is 1 TB of RAM then you will need at least 4TB for data and
1 TB for Log. The space requirement for root partition, backup space and shared
HANA file system(/hana/shared) is additional.
Install JAVA :
To install SAP HANA
we need JAVA 64 bit, one can install Java 1.6/1.7 or 1.8.
We are installing
JAVA as recommended in following URL.
