Managing the SAP HANA Database Server

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the SAP HANA Database Server so that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. To manage a SAP HANA component, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select SAP HANA as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 2.

Then, select the OS as Linux and Mode as SSH. Also specify the credentials of the user who is authorized to access the OS in the User text box.
  5. Then, try to sign out of the eG administrative interface. Upon doing so, Figure 3 will appear listing the unconfigured tests for the SAP HANA Database server.
