While adding the SAP HANA systems, you should add the HDB user store keys. The HDB secure user store key is used to store the connection information of SAP HANA systems securely on the client and HDBSQL client uses the secure user store key to connect to SAP HANA systems.

Note You cannot add or modify SAP HANA systems if a node in the AKS cluster is down.

      Note You should add user store keys for each host if you are adding a multi-host SAP HANA system.
