SAP HANA - Platform Edition or Express Edition ?

HANA Express Edition has a different support strategy from HANA Platform Edition.

Resolution

Logon to HANA DB OS, go to /usr/sap/<SID>/HDB<no>/exe and execute command "file" against any library file, e.g hdbdaemon.

  • If it shows "not stripped", it is HANA Platform Edition.

  • If it shows "stripped", it is HANA Express Edition.

Example


[Platform Edition]

abcdhost:/usr/sap/ABC/HDB01/exe # file hdbdaemon
