Description: The article is about sdi login. In this tutorial, the author explains how to activate the HANA Adapter in SPS10 within the Data Provisioning Agent in order to carry out HANA to HANA Replication. You can learn some new features within smart data integration.
Welcome to the SAPA Henner academy, my name’s Bob. In this series, we are going to be looking at some of the new features in SAP Hannah SPS ten. In this series, we’re going to be looking at some of the new features within smart data integration.
In this tutorial, we’re going to be looking at configuring the data provisioning agent in order for us to be able to do Hannah to Hannah replication by using the Hana adapter. If we want to connect to a remote Hana system as a data source, the first thing is to install the data provisioning agent. I’ve already done some tutorials on how to do this.
All you need to do a search for is SAP Hana Academy, smart data integration or Twitter replication, you can choose one of them to do the search. If you research for this, you will find that we have a video on YouTube which shows you how to get to the same point.
This is about how to install the data provisioning agent, how to switch on the data provisioning server and how to configure your data provisioning agent. You’ll need to go through that. Assuming that you’ve done it, you’ll end up with this data provisioning agent on a Windows machine.
This is the Windows machine, it is essentially going to connect to that remote Hana system. I will connect to my Hana system. We have an agent registered, that agent has started. The agent runs on this Windows machine as a window service, this connects to my Hana SPS 10 system.
Those are a few things about this new version in SPS 10. You’ve got these extra adapters. We’re going to use one of these adapters called Hana adapter. You need to register this adapter with my Hana SPS 10 system. I’ll click on yes. This means that we’re able to use that adapter. While I’m here, I may cover some other changes.
You can see that we have this Teradata adapter as one of the other adapters. In terms of new adapters, we have the Hana adapter. We have Tara data as a new adapter, we also have SAP ASE as that third new adapter in SAP Hana SPS 10. BW adapter is not made for massive datasets, there’ll be a SAP for that.
If I go to my web base development workbench, I’ll log in as my user. We can go and check whether this agent and adapter have been registered in our Hana instance. To do this, all I need to do is to expand my catalog. I am going to go to the SIS schema. Within views, we have a couple of views which can help us detect that.
I want to to check whether my agent is registered or not. If I click it and go to the content of that agents view, we can see that we’ve got a few agents registered. This is the one that I’m going to use, this is Bob’s agent. You’ve got the protocol, the IP address and the port.
Additionally, if I go to my adapters and open up the content, we can see that we’ve added that Hana adapter. There are some other enhancements, we’ll cover these in other tutorials to summarize the date of provisioning agent. We can create alerts, it will inform us when the date of provisioning agent can’t be reached or the memory usage and the date of provisioning agent are high.
Additionally, we’ve added some new adapter statistics in the monitoring log. We’ll cover these features in other tutorial, let’s summarize what we did. Although I didn’t show you how to install the data provisioning agent, I have pointed you to a tutorial which showed you how to install the data provisioning agent.
The method is the same one in SPS 10. We have looked at configuring the data provisioning agent so we can use their hand adapter. This will enable us to do two things, we cab connect to a remote Hana system and create a virtual table, we can do Hannah to Hannah replication, I’m going to show you how to do that in a third tutorial.
Lastly, we have looked at how to verify that your agent and adapter have been registered in your SIP Hana system by using the SCP Hana web-based development workbench. Let’s move on to the next tutorial in which we’re going to create a remote source and a virtual table to a remote Hana system.
