Enabling autostart of SAP HANA Database on serverboot

A while ago one of our HANA appliances crashed due to a hardware failure and i recognized that not all databases had started properly. This can be chose during the installation and different persons have installed the databases differently. But how to fix that?


  1. Logon to the operating system of the SAP HANA Appliance with adm or change to adm.
  2. Edit: /hana/shared/#SID#/profile/#SID#_HDB#INSTANCE_NUMBER#_#HOSTNAME#:
    vi /hana/shared/$SAPSYSTEMNAME/profile/$SAPSYSTEMNAME_HDB*
  3. Change "Autostart = 0" to "Autostart = 1"
  4. Save

On the next boot this database will be started properly.
