HANA server installation 401 unauthorization issue
Today I want to install hana server on one of my server station, I downloaded the latest installation files from our production server and transfer the install files to Suse station. The folder structure like this:
Everything goes smoothly until the last step to start instance.
Does anyone know how to get rid of this error?
I've attached full installation log file.
OS Distribution : SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1
HANA: Version is 1.00.37 Build 0368807-1410
It look like to me that the HANA system was created successfully, however, due the SAP authentication mechanism (for security sake). It requires client authentication for executing critical function like "Start" or "Stop". By default http basic authentication with OS <sid>adm user and password can be used, For local connections a so called "trusted connect" can be used via the "sapcontrol" command line tool
Starting instance using: /usr/sap/AI2/SYS/exe/hdb/sapcontrol -prot NI_HTTP -nr 00 -function StartWait 2700 2
Allow me explain a little bit further.
sapcontrol : command line
-prot option is the protocol
NI_HTTP HTTP using SAP NI sockets (default, prefer Unix domain sockets)
-nr option, instance number
-function option, StartWait is the function name with two parameters timeout second and delay second
And more important, after reading some related documentations regarding to sapcontrol command, it using SOAP http authentication, why the heck it need SOAP? And again, which server host the wsdl that will validate my OS user and password? I'm lost here.
Well, if you execute the following command, it became to another case.
sapcontrol -nr 00 -function StopService -user <sid>adm Password
FAIL: Invalid Credentials
I'm pretty sure about my OS name and password. It just refused work. Day past but the problem haven't get solved. Someone please help, I'm really appreciate.
