Extract the installation files and setup your SAP HANA 2.0, express edition installation.

You will learn

You will learn how to download the binary image of SAP HANA 2.0, express edition, install the image on your Linux server, and install additional tools for your SAP HANA 2.0, express edition installation as desired.

Step 1: Extract the installation files.

Navigate to the directory where you wish to extract the installation files.

Extract the contents of the following files:

  • hxe.tgz
  • eml.tgz (if you are installing the External Machine Learning Library)
  • hsa.tgz (if you are installing streaming analytics)
  • sdi.tgz (if you are installing smart data integration)
  • apl.tgz (if you are installing the Automated Predictive Library)
tar -xvzf `download_path`/hxe.tgz
tar -xvzf `download_path`/eml.tgz
tar -xvzf `download_path`/hsa.tgz
tar -xvzf `download_path`/sdi.tgz
tar -xvzf `download_path`/apl.tgz

Run the tar command from the command shell as shown, rather than using a GUI-based extraction tool.

You may have to give these files run permissions. Example:

chmod -R 777 `download_path`/hxe.tgz
Step 2: Start the installation.

Navigate to the directory where you extracted the files and run ./ as the root user:

cd `extracted_path`
sudo ./

Follow the prompts to configure your installation.

The master password you specify during installation is used for the sid``adm and sapadm OS users, the telemetry technical user, and the SYSTEM user. The password is also used for the following users in additional components:

  • SYS_STREAMING and SYS_STREAMING_ADMIN (streaming analytics)

SAP HANA, express edition requires a very strong password that complies with these rules:

  • At least 8 characters
  • At least 1 uppercase letter
  • At least 1 lowercase letter
  • At least 1 number
  • Can contain special characters, but not ` (backtick), $ (dollar sign), \ (backslash), ' (single quote), or " (double quotes)
  • Cannot contain simplistic or systematic values, like strings in ascending or descending numerical or alphabetical order
