S/4HANA Installation Quickstart Guide and Monitoring S/4HANA

  1. 1. SAP S/4HANA Installation and Monitoring This is a compilation of notes taken during installation of IDES S4HANA. Also include monitoring of S/4HANA using the IT-Conductor By OZSoft Consulting for ITConductor.com Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 1
  2. 2. Introduction/References IDES based on S4HANA was available as per OSS note 2445594 Main Reference: 2445594 - IDES S/HANA 1610 Additional References: • SAP HANA Server Installation GUide • Installation Guide - NW NW 7.3 to 7.5 on UNIX: SAP HANA DB • Published blogs and documents Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 2
  3. 3. Introduction SAP Product Availability Matrix Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 3
  4. 4. Installation The IDES S4HANA was installed with/on the following • AS ABAP 7.51 for S/4HANA 1610 • SAP Kernel 7.49 64-BIT UNICODE • SAP HANA Database 2.0 (SPS00) • Linux SUSE SLES 12/X86-64 64BIT SAP HANA and The SAP NW AS ABAP server were deployed on one server The installation’s general steps 1. Install the HANA server 2. Install the NW ABAP server Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 4
  5. 5. Installation – HANA server Install the HANA server as root ./hdblcm --component_root=<extracted HANA 2.0> Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 5 HANA2 SPS00 installed, with database mode ‘single_container’. Note that if HANA2 SPS01 was used, then the only option is ‘multiple_container’ (i.e. MDB)
  6. 6. Installation – HANA server Installation check cd /hana/shared/H4S/hdblcm/hdblcm Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 6
  7. 7. Installation – NW ABAP server As root, from the SWPM extract folder, run sapinst 1. Preparation – Prerequisite check Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 7
  8. 8. Installation – NW ABAP server 2. Install ABAP server – Standard system Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 8 NW SID = S4H HANA SID = H4S
  9. 9. Installation – NW ABAP server Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 9 Depending on your server’s resources, reduce or increase the parallelism
  10. 10. Installation – NW ABAP server To monitor the import of the packages, go to the installation directory. • The file ‘import_state_properties’ indicates the status of each package, e.g. • A package with corresponding TSK.bck file means it is being processed. At the start of processing of a package, the .TSK file is copied into TSK.bck, then the TSK is emptied. For each task completed, the TSK is updated Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 10 ‘?’ = its in progress (it has corresponding TSK.bck file) – see below ‘+’ = its complete without error ‘-‘ = error ‘0’ = still to do
  11. 11. Installation – NW ABAP server Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 11 Review and process accordingly, e.g. below

  13. 13. Fact check: Comparison Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 13 IDES Personas ERP 6.0 EHP7 IDES S/4HANA CVERS Software components 224 162 DD02T SAP DD: SAP Table Texts 7,357,481 5,581,980 REPOSRC Report Source Code 5,212,388 5,531,016 TFDIR Function Module 516,549 502,440 TRDIR System table TRDIR 5,212,111 5,531,007 TADIR Directory of Repository Objects 4,041,073 4,346,880 Comparison on the IDES S/4HANA and IDES ERP 6.0 EHP7 on ASE • We were expecting a reduction in both the code and dictionary tables based on SAP’s marketing message, but some actually went up!
  14. 14. Tip: Reclaiming DATAVOLUME unused space Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 14 The DATAVOLUME can go up to > 250Gb. To free up the unused space, issue the following SQL command ‘ALTER SYSTEM RECLAIM DATAVOLUME 110 DEFRAGMENT’ This reduced the datavolume size from 205Gb to 107GB! This process can take many hours or days depending on server and storage speed. Note that before doing the reclaim/defragmentation, the following steps were taken - Create the initial backup (note that at this stage, the auto_log_backup was still disabled) - Stopped the ABAP system
  15. 15. Monitoring – using cloud-based IT-Conductor Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 15 After the installation and post-tasks, the installed IDES S/4HANA was registered to the IT- Conductor. The process is quick (< 5 minutes), and straight forward. Once the ABAP system S4H is registered in ITC, the tool ‘discovers’ all related objects (e.g. application server, HANA and its services). ITC has ‘drill-down’ feature, by a single click on an object

  25. 25. Summary – S/4HANA Installation Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 25 • The process is not much different than other SAP NW installation • The HANA database or appliance installation is a separate task, and can be quite complex if HA/DR is included • Space reclamation is key to reduce the size of the database following installation • Sizing HANA and configuring appropriately is key to operational performance, otherwise it can be quite slow. • Monitoring of S/4HANA Availability and Performance is critical to maintaining its health • Technically S/4HANA is not simpler than Netweaver on any-DB • Security configuration of new roles, Fiori, SAP Netweaver Gateway, and optional Java instance are additional effort
  26. 26. Summary – Deployment Comparison Author: Terry Kempis Editor: Linh Nguyen ITConductor.com 26 S/4HANA • S/4HANA Cloud deployment is much more simple and can be operational in a few hours, especially with pre-configured instances • S/4HANA On-premise deployment can take days depending on infrastructure requirements and other optional components IT-Conductor Monitoring of complete S/4HANA Stack • On-cloud S/4HANA: Such as at AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform – less than an hour • On-premise S/4HANA: Includes complex scale-out HANA platform, 30 minutes or less • In both cases, and including Hybrid environments: IT-Conductor reduces SAP monitoring effort and cost up to 90% compared to Solution Manager
