You will learn

You will learn how to extract and configure the binary image of SAP HANA 2.0, express edition on your Linux server. You downloaded the Server-only installer file in the previous tutorial.

  • Step 1

    You downloaded the installation files in the previous tutorial.

    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)
    bash
    Copy
    tar -xvzf <download_path>/hxe.tgz
    
    bash
    Copy
    tar -xvzf <download_path>/eml.tgz
    
    bash
    Copy
    tar -xvzf <download_path>/hsa.tgz
    
    bash
    Copy
    tar -xvzf <download_path>/sdi.tgz
    
    bash
    Copy
    tar -xvzf <download_path>/apl.tgz
    

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

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

    bash
    Copy
    chmod 444 <download_path>/hxe.tgz
    
  • Step 2

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

    bash
    Copy
    cd <extracted_path>
    sudo ./setup_hxe.sh
    

    Follow the prompts to configure your installation.

    Note:
    The master password you specify during installation is used for the 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
