Each SAP HANA node must have two host bus adapter (HBA) ports that are zoned to the FC ports of the Unity I/O modules.
After the SAP HANA nodes are started, if the zoning is correct, the host initiators are visible to the Unity module.
To create an SAP HANA host:
- Select Access > Hosts in the left panel. The Hosts page appears.
- To add an SAP HANA host, click the plus sign in the upper left corner and select Host. The Add a Host screen appears.
- Type a name for the new SAP HANA host and (optionally) a description of
the host. Click Next.
- On the OS and Network Address page, specify a host operating system and network address. Although the operating system information is not required, it allows for more specific configuration and troubleshooting instructions.
The network address (name or IP address) is required to customize access to the NFS share. Click Next.
- On the Select iSCSI Initiators page:
- If you are using iSCSI initiators, from the list of auto-discovered initiators select the iSCSI initiators the host will use to access storage resources. If you do not find the initiator you want in the list, click Create Initiator to
add it manually and then select that initiator from the list of manually added initiators. Click Next.
- If you are not using iSCSI initiators, click Next.
- On the Select Fibre Channel Initiators page, from the list of auto-discovered initiators (shown in Figure 7), select the FC initiators that the host will use to access storage resources.
If you do not find the initiator you want in the list, click Create Initiator to add an initiator manually, and then select it from the list of manually added initiators. Click Next.
