Description of work

  • Bring two IBM x3950 servers up to the latest SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 service pack level appropriate for SAP HANA.
  • Both servers to be upgraded are located in Toledo, OH. See left side of diagram below.
  • The second server (prod environment) serves as a DR replica. If this DR replica is down for too long it becomes out of sync with the primary and ultimately requires a new snapshot to be taken and replicated across the network. The primary is located on the other side of the state so this replication process will take a couple days.
  • Upgrade dependent device drivers and firmware for GPFS, FusionIO, etc. to the level required for the SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 service pack.


  • Define the required upgrade path for the current server O/S from SP1 to the appropriate version.
  • Define upgrade dependencies such as GPFS, FusionIO, etc.
  • Define O/S specific changes between service pack levels requiring configuration changes and updates.
  • Define any dependencies for the SAP specific O/S components.
  • Execute the upgrade on one non-prod environment considering scope items #1 – #4.
  • Execute the upgrade on one production environment used as a DR replica considering scope items #1 – #4.
  • Maintain the integrity of the current SAP HANA data.
  • Troubleshoot any O/S issues arising as a result of the upgrades.
