Over the weekend we've just finished an experiment of changing HANA SID. The research we are doing includes:

Procedures to change HANA SID
Will hardware key change after changing HANA SID
How licenses work after HANA SID changed
So, first of all, let's backup the system and start this experiment!

After the server hardware crashed and we had a chance to upgrade to VMWare ESXi 6.5. However after various steps to recover all the VMs, when we tried to start S4, it should license check error

We know that the license check actually depends on where the ASCS instance runs, however when we check the ASCS instance and it was not running at all!

During SAP installation the ASCS was installe
Hana Multi-tenant connection on BI 4.2
The OLAP connection to HANA asks for an instance number and it then connects to the HANA server on port "3<instance_number>15".
But in multi-tenant scenarios the port number changes. It cannot connect to SAP HANA tenant or system DB. Below is the link for SAP on-line help about Port Assignment in Tenant Databases.

Hi, Gurus,

Trying to enable BRF+ in the Shark 1610 system, in order to test the new output functionality.
I have followed 2292571 - SAP S/4HANA output control - technical setup, and saw that in SICF, all relevant ICF services are activated.
However when I try T-Code BRF+ or test any of these services, I got 404 not found in browser.
Anyone know what is missing here? Thanks!

Recently I got a Lenovo T460s Ultrabook but with its standard configuration which only comes with 128GB SSD and 4GB(onboard) ram. During the Black Friday sale I had a chance to purchase a piece of 16GB DDR4 and 512GB Intel 600p M.2 SSD drive

I notice that in the latest Lenovo thin T series book like this one, T460, it completely gets rid of the traditional 2.5" HDD/SSD tray. Instead all these

We have created a tool to create automated test cases, Leaptest.com. The tool is based on image and text-recognition so we have seen a big interest from clients that run applications through terminals (primarily Citrix). We now have a client that is using it with a 3270 terminal and I would like to do some verification to help the client.

Is it possible - and OK - to signup for an acc
