Deleting SAP HANA database backups

You can delete SAP HANA database backups if you no longer require the backup for other data protection operations.

  2. On the Resources page, either select the resource or resource group from the View drop-down list.
    The resource or resource group topology page is displayed.
  3. From the Manage Copies view, select Backups from the primary storage system.
    You cannot delete the backups that are on the secondary storage system.
  4. Select the appropriate backup, and then click .
    The associated SAP HANA catalogs of the backup are also deleted.
    Note: If the last remaining backup is deleted, the associated HANA catalog entries cannot be deleted.
  5. Click OK.
