04/18/2019

Test your XSA, SAP Web IDE, Cockpit, and XSC installations.

You will learn

You’ll learn how to connect to the server from applications, and check if the applications installed correctly.


Note:
Make sure you edited your /etc/hosts file before starting this procedure.

Step 1: Test XSA
  1. In your VM, log in to XSA services:

    xs-admin-login
    
  2. When prompted for the XSA_ADMIN password, enter the master password

    You specified this password when you were prompted for the HANA database master password earlier in Start SAP HANA, express edition Server.

Step 3: Test SAP Web IDE
  1. Display the status and URL for the application webide. Enter:

    xs apps | grep webide
    
    hxe_webide_url_rev031_2
  2. Check that the application webide shows STARTED in the list of XSA applications, and has 1/1 instances. (If the output shows 0/1 in the instance column, the application is not started.)

    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.

  3. Test your Web IDE connection. Enter the URL for Web IDE in a browser on your laptop.

    Example: https://hxehost:53075
    
    hxe_webide_login_0
  4. For HANA Username, enter XSA_DEV.

    You specified this password when you were prompted for HANA database master password in Start SAP HANA, express edition Server.

    Web IDE displays.hxe_webide_splash_1

    If you are prompted to change your password, follow the instructions.

Step 4: Test Cockpit
  1. Go back to your VM. Enter:

    xs apps | grep cockpit-admin-web-app
    
  2. Check that the application cockpit-admin-web-app shows STARTED in the list of XSA applications and has 1/1 instances.

    hxe_cockpit_wa_url_rev031_6

    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.

  3. Check that the application xsa-cockpit shows STARTED in the list of XSA applications and has 1/1 instances. Enter:

    xs apps | grep xsa-cockpit
    

    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.

    hxe_xsacockpit_url_rev031_5
  4. In a browser on your laptop, enter the cockpit-admin-web-app URL you noted earlier.

    The Cockpit log in page displays.

    hxe_cockpit_login_3
  5. For HANA Username, enter XSA_ADMIN.

  6. For HANA Password, enter the master password.

    You specified this password when you were prompted for HANA database master password earlier in this tutorial.

    Cockpit displays:hxe_cockpit_splash_7

Step 5: (Optional) Test XSC

Check that the XSEngine is running. From your host OS (not the VM guest) open a browser and enter:

http://<hxehost IP address>:8090

You recorded the IP address earlier in Start SAP HANA, express edition Server. A success page displays. This indicates that XSC is running:

HXE_XS_Success_4

Note:
SAP plans to remove SAP HANA extended application services, classic model (XSC) and the corresponding SAP HANA Repository with the next major product version of SAP HANA.

These components will be removed:

  • SAP HANA extended application services, classic model

  • SAP HANA Repository (XS classic)

  • SAP HANA Studio (Development, Modeling, and Administration perspectives)

  • SAP HANA Web-based Development Workbench (XS classic)

SAP strongly advises you to plan the transition of existing content and applications from XSC to SAP HANA extended application services, advanced model (XS Advanced).
