Ensure that you have at least created all tables required for the activation, as described in Create Database Tables (Side-by-Side Only).

Downloading and Deploying Content Packages
Recommendation

SAP recommends using SAP Solution Manager to install and update SAP HANA Live products and Maintenance Transactions. This allows you to deploy several product versions at once.

Alternatively, you can download the required zip files directly from SAP Service Marketplace and deploy them manually. This means only single product versions can be deployed.

Note

Your SAP HANA database has to be registered in the System Landscape Directory (SLD).

In addition, your SAP HANA database must be created as a product system in the Landscape Management Database. You do this in SAP Solution Manager using transaction lmdb. This is necessary for the steps described under SAP Solution Manager below.

For more information about how to register in SLD, see SAP Help Portal at http://help.sap.com/hana_applianceStart of the navigation path Installation and Upgrade Information Next navigation step SAP HANA Update Guides Next navigation step SAP HANA Update and Configuration Guide End of the navigation path.

    7. Confirm the Major Target by choosing Continue.

    8. To choose your products, note the following:

      Note

      If you are using Maintenance Optimizer 3.0, the Add-On Product List is created dynamically. You initially see only add-ons that can be installed directly on the SAP HANA database. If you want to install an add-on that requires another add-on to be installed, you must first select the required product version on which the product you want to install is based.

      Example

      You want to install the product version SAP WORK CAPITAL ANALYTICS 1.0. For this product version to be listed, you must first have selected SAP HANA ANALYTICS FOR ERP 1.0.

      To find out the required product version of your product, see Installation Information for Virtual Data Models.

      If you product has several instances, you must select the instances you want to install manually. When your instance is selected, choose Apply.

    9. Follow this procedure for all products you want to install. When you are done, choose Continue.

    10. Under Select OS/DB-Dependent Files, expand the instance node under File Name. Select SAP HANA database and choose Continue.

    11. Under Select Files for Add-on Products, choose Continue.

    12. Under Select Stack-Dependent Files, under File Name, new database patches are pre-selected by default. If you do not want to install these patches, de-select them. You must not deselect OS-DB if you are upgrading your SAP HANA databse to HANA SPS 08. Choose Continue.

    13. Confirm the download basket by choosing Continue.

    14. On the Stack Files tab, download the System-Specific XML for SLM. Save and close the Maintenance Optimizer windows. Then download the calculated files using SAP Download Manager from SAP Service Marketplace. Make the downloaded files and XML files available on your SAP HANA appliance.

    15. As the SYSTEM user in the SAP HANA studio, right-click on the server node in the navigation pane, and select Lifecycle Management.

    16. Select Apply Support Package Stack under Update SAP HANA System.

    17. Choose Manually downloaded content, then browse to find the content you downloaded in step 5 and run the installation and update procedure.
