You’ll learn how to confirm that your SAP HANA, express edition installation is running.


Step 1: Test your server installation.

In a terminal, log in as the sid``adm user.

Enter HDB info. The following services must be running:

  • hdbnameserver
  • hdbcompileserver
  • hdbwebdispatcher
  • hdbdiserver

If any services are not running, enter HDB start. When the prompt returns, the system is started.

Check that the XSEngine is running. Open a browser and enter:

http://`hostname`:80`instance-number`

A success page displays:

loiofdcde7cfd9bc4a2d990f26340cf6387b_LowRes
Step 2: Test XSA.

As the sid``adm user, log in to XSA services:

xs-admin-login

At the prompt for the XSA_ADMIN password, enter the master password you specified during installation.

View the list of XSA applications:

xs apps

Note:
When you run the xs apps command for the first time, it may take 1-2 minutes for the system to return the list of XSA applications.

Check that the application cockpit-admin-web-app shows STARTED with 1/1 instances in the list of XSA applications.

Note:
Normally it only takes a few minutes for XSA services to start. However. depending on your machine, it can take over 30 minutes for XSA services to begin. If the service doesn’t show STARTED and doesn’t show 1/1 instances, keep waiting until the service is enabled.

Make a note of the URL for cockpit-admin-web-app.

loio1636a2c7a819400aabfa34b34235abef_LowRes

Enter the URL for cockpit-admin-web-app in a browser. The address is the one that displays in your xs apps command output.

Example: https://my.hostname:51043

Log in using the XSA_ADMIN user.

If your site uses a proxy for connecting to HTTP and HTTPS servers, select Cockpit Settings > Proxy, then enable Http(s) Proxy and set the host, port, and non-proxy hosts.

Note:
To find your proxy server information, in a terminal, enter env | grep PROXY.

Note:
If you are using HANA Cockpit to register a resource, both HANA Cockpit and the SAP HANA, express edition server must be from the same release. SAP does not recommend using a newer HANA Cockpit to register an older version of SAP HANA, express edition.

Step 3: Test Web IDE.

As the sid``adm user, log in to XSA services:

xs-admin-login

At the prompt for the XSA_ADMIN password, enter the master password you specified during installation.

View the status of the webide application. Enter:

xs apps | grep webide

Check that the application webide shows STARTED with 1/1 instances in the list of XSA applications.

Note:
Normally it only takes a few minutes for XSA services to start. However. depending on your machine, it can take over 30 minutes for XSA services to begin. If the service doesn’t show STARTED and doesn’t show 1/1 instances, keep waiting until the service is enabled.

Make a note of the URL for webide.

Test your Web IDE connection. Enter the URL for webide in a browser. The address is the one that displays in your xs apps command output.

Example: https://my.hostname:53075

Log on to Web IDE using the XSA_DEV user.

Step 4: (Optional) Test Your Installation Using the HANA Eclipse Plugin.

Download Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers from http://www.eclipse.org/neon/ to your local file system.

Follow the Eclipse installer prompts.

Launch when prompted, or go to the Eclipse folder (example: C:\Users\path\eclipse\jee-neon) and run the eclipse executable file.

Follow the tutorial How to download and install the HANA Eclipse plugin to connect to your SAP HANA, express edition client machine.
