Add resources manually to the plug-in host
Automatic discovery is not supported for certain HANA instances. You must add these resources manually.
You must have completed tasks such as installing the SnapCenter Server, adding hosts, setting up storage system connections, and adding HDB User Store Key.
For SAP HANA system replication, it is recommended to add all the resources of that HANA system into one resource group and take a resource group backup. This ensures a seamless backup during takeover-failback mode.
Automatic discovery is not supported for the following configurations:
RDM and VMDK layouts
In case the above resources are discovered, the data protection operations are not supported on these resources.
HANA multiple-host configuration
Multiple instances on the same host
Multitier scale out HANA System Replication
Cascaded replication environment in System Replication mode
In the left navigation pane, select the SnapCenter Plug-in for SAP HANA Database from the drop-down list, and then click Resources.
In the Resources page, click Add SAP HANA Database.
In the Provide Resource Details page, perform the following actions:
For this field… Do this…
Enter the resource type. Resource types are Single Container, Multitenant Database Container (MDC), and Non-data Volume.
HANA System Name
Enter the descriptive SAP HANA system name. This option is available only if you selected Single Container or MDC resource types.
Enter the system ID (SID). The installed SAP HANA system is identified by a single SID.
Select the plug-in host.
HDB Secure User Store Keys
Enter the key to connect to the SAP HANA system.
The key contains the login information to connect to the database.
For SAP HANA System Replication, secondary user key is not validated. This will be used during takeover.
HDBSQL OS User
Enter the user name for whom the HDB Secure User Store Key is configured. For Windows, it is mandatory for the HDBSQL OS User to be the SYSTEM user. Therefore, you must configure the HDB Secure User Store Key for the SYSTEM user.
In the Provide Storage Footprint page, select a storage system and choose one or more volumes, LUNs, and qtrees, and then click Save.
Optional: You can click the icon to add more volumes, LUNs, and qtrees from other storage systems.
Review the summary, and then click Finish.
The databases are displayed along with information such as the SID, plug-in host, associated resource groups and policies, and overall status
If you want to provide users access to resources, you must assign the resources to the users. This enables users to perform the actions for which they have permissions on the assets that are assigned to them.
After adding the databases, you can modify the SAP HANA database details.
You cannot modify the following if there are backups associated with the SAP HANA resource:
Multitenant database containers (MDC): SID, or HDBSQL Client (plug-in) Host
Single Container: SID or HDBSQL Client (plug-in) Host
Non-data Volume: Resource name, Associated SID, or Plug-in Host
