Limitations on SAP HANA Trial Instance:

A trial SAP HANA instance provides you with a shared database instance, allowing you to work with SAP HANA in a managed environment. Due to restrictions in place to ensure user and data isolation, developers have limited access rights. For instance, certain system-wide or administrative features are not available. SAP provides limited support and service for trial instance.
However, the trial instance is sufficient for learning purpose.

Important points on SAP Cloud Platform Cockpit:

Account Dashboard:
Select “Account Dashboard” from the left menu. This will show the Display Name and Account ID.
Account ID will be further used to connect this HANA system from HANA Studio.

Free Access to SAP Cloud Platform

Resources:
Select “Resources” from left menu. This shows the details of resources assigned to this account. For example by default we are provided with 1.02 GB disk space.

  2. Barbara says:

    Hi
    I’ve just started with Online HANA Basics, got an access to the HANA trial, installed the HANA studio on my machine and got stacked with adding system into SAP HANA Studio admin console.
    I’ve put there following:
    Hostname: hanatrial.ondemand.com
    Instance Number: 00
    User Name: snnnnnnnnnntrial
    Password: xxxxxxxx (the same I can connect to SAP HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit)

    -> I get the following message: “The system is not reachable, the login data could not be considered. Are you sure you want to add the system into your workspace?”

    How to get the connection working?

    Thanks
    Barbara

  3. Ashok says:

    it looks like this free trail account do not allow HANA Administration features, is that so?

    Is there any free facility available for HANA admins to practice or is it possible only on paid services of AWS and Microsoft Azure?

    Regards,
    Ashok Oleti

    • Admin says:

      Hi Ashok,
      HANA administration tasks requires more privileges. In trial account it is not possible. HANA trial account is mainly for development and PoC purpose.
      For administration hands-on you need a paid service.

      • Raj says:

        Admin..
        For Administration could you tell the procedure to access, what will be the charges for sap hana administration

  4. Malthesha says:

    Is there any time period limit for free “HANA Instances” that we get ?

    • Admin says:

      HiMalthesha,
      So far, there is no information from SAP regarding that. Most probably it will be free for a long time. But in case you are working on some critical project, make sure you take regular backup of your work.

  5. Thuli says:

    Hi,

    I do not have elect “HANA Instances” from left side.

    • Tere says:

      Me too.
      How can I make “HANA instances” appear in my SAP HANA cloud cockpit?

      • Admin says:

        Hello,

        If you go through the topic, we have mentioned on your left side panel “Databases & Schema” option is available, clicking on that would direct to the option of adding Schema, through this you could add HANA Instance , for XS applications you have to choose HANA XS .
        Database & Schema on HANA Cloud Cockpit
        Add New Schema
        New Database / Schema

        This might help you, for further query please email us back at “admin@saphanatutorial.com”.

    Please guide on the same!!

    Thanks,

      Hi Om,
      When you create SAP HANA Instance, it asks for SYSTEM user’s password. You should use SYSTEM user and the same password. Check the section “Create a SAP HANA Database in your Trial SAP Cloud Account”.
      Let me know if you still have any doubt.

      • Om says:

        Thanks for the information,

        But still I will not able to login, Do you means whenever we are creating new database/schema at that time we creating database id and system user password. So is that username & password I should use?
