Is a dedicated tablespace for SLT logging tables required for HANA source systems?

Hi all,

In a HANA side car scenario using an SLT to bring data from a traditional ERP to HANA, you define a table space in the source system to control/maintain the logging tables in source system. Now think of a similar case but this time the source ERP is on a HANA database instead of say Oracle.

Do you still need to define a tablespace - since there is such a concept in HANA DB - ? If not while configuring the SLT system, there is a parameter for “ Data Transfer Settings” called “Data class of Tablespace”, and it is not mandatory. I assume there is no consequences/practical use for it.

Please share your experience

Hi Tansu,

There are no table spaces in SAP HANA (one of the reasons why it’s simpler than other DBs).  Therefore the DDIC data class settings (SE11 > Technical settings) have no impact on SAP
HANA databases. Only system copy tools still use the data classes. If applications running on HANA are asking for a data class/table space, then it’s just to be compatible with other databases.
