Installing and configuring required software components

Contributors Download PDF of this page

For the SAP HANA backup and restore solution using the Snap Creator Framework and the SAP HANA plug-in, you need to install Snap Creator software components and the SAP HANA hdbsql client software.

You do not need to install the plug-in separately. It is installed with the Agent.

  1. Install the Snap Creator Server on a host that shares network connectivity with the host where you install the Agent.

  2. Install the Snap Creator Agent on a host that shares network connectivity with the Snap Creator Server host.

    • In a single SAP HANA node environment, install the Agent on the database host. Alternately, install the Agent on another host that has network connectivity to the database host and the Snap Creator Server host.

    • In a multinode SAP HANA environment, you should not install the Agent on the database host; the Agent needs to be installed on a separate host that has network connectivity to the database host and the Snap Creator Server host.

  3. Install the SAP HANA hdbsql client software on the host where you installed the Snap Creator Agent.

    Configure the user store keys for the SAP HANA nodes that you manage through this host.
