SAP HANA Backup from Physical to Virtual Machine

Hello,

A customer is asking if it's possible to use Netbackup for their SAP HANA appliance and replicate it to a virtual machine?  Purpose is no one is maintaining their SAP HANA appliance so they want it be converted to a virtual machine using Netbackup.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Joann

Hello,

what is supported by NetBackup is a redirected restore of SAP HANA databases. It is documented in NetBackup for SAP Admin Guide.

I would not call it "replication" or "conversion", it is just one-time restore. I suppose you must have appropriate target VM+SAP machine purchased & prepared first - see https://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/business-critical-apps/vmware-sap-... for more.

Regards

Michal

I have moved your post to NetBackup forum since your query is related to SAP HANA appliance, not NetBackup Appliance.

Hi Michal,


Thanks for the response. I'll look into this.  So does it mean that it's possible to backup a SAP HANA database from an appliance and restore it to a supported target SAP HANA and VMWare certified hardware?

Thanks and regards,

Joann

Hello Joann,

I think you should verify this procedure with SAP Hana support, too.
