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

hdbdaemon: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib64/l, for GNU/Linux 3.0.0, BuildID[sha1]=e1326daa20ae9ca03a64740a1eb41889a58f66be, not stripped

[Express Edition]

abchost:hanadm> file hdbdaemon

hdbdaemon: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2, for GNU/Linux 2.6.4, BuildID[sha1]=a90c2ff717eb149c6b3badfcca6befba99036cb7, stripped.
