Preparatory work in the BW system


Preparation is a collaborative work between Basis, BW
support team and ABAP/development team.
Create a production copy Sandbox
Best practice in doing an upgrade is to create and use a
production copy sandbox first before starting with the
development system. It offers the following benefits:
1. Identify potential issue and get a fix ready before hitting
the other systems used in development and production.
2. Allows optimization of the process to reduce the
downtime and impact to the business. The update and
migrate tool, SUMs DMO, provides a special feature which
allows repetition of the downtime for optimization.

Target BW and HANA DB


Recommended to always use the latest BW release/level for
the target system.
The target HANA system has been installed as per SAP
requirements.
The target support package should be the latest, and ideally
installed with the DSP (datacenter service point).
The capacity should meet the result from the sizing report discussed at later stage.

Author: Terry Kempis


Editor: Linh Nguyen

ITConductor.com

BW Housekeeping/data clean-up
Similar to preparing a BW system for upgrade and/or Unicode
conversion, reduction of the data volume should be done normally referred to as BW housekeeping tasks. This will
reduce the data to be exported from the source system and
imported to the target DB. This will reduce the downtime of
the system during the upgrade, and it also reduces the
capacity requirement of the target HANA DB.
The normal housekeeping/clean-up tasks involves the BW
functional team, which includes

PSA reduction and change log


Infocube compression
Deletion of temporary objects
Deletion of statistics data

In addition, the SAP BW Migration Cockpit includes a


Housekeeping section for common housekeeping tasks.

SAP BW Migration Cockpit for SAP HANA


SAP provides the BW migration cockpit program, which is the
main entry point to all the tools for the BW to HANA
migration preparation. It also includes some post-task items
(e.g. ASU, Down-sizing Near-line Storage, extended tables)

Author: Terry Kempis


Editor: Linh Nguyen

ITConductor.com

Migration Cockpit
From the cockpit, all the tools needed for can be executed (e.g.
sizing, list program codes that can be optimized for HANA). Also
incorporated previous tools like ASU, normal housekeeping tasks,
BW Checks.
Each tab has different tasks within it. If you hover to the right side
Documentation, it provides either
OSS note which contains the ABAP program to be uploaded to perform
the check, and how-to-guide, e.g. BW Checklist for SAP HANA
Link to the relevant SAP HELP page

The cockpit is installed by creating ABAP program

Sizing
This tab contains several sections
Sizing Tool
The tool provides an estimated size of eventual BW system
in the HANA database.
Note that the figure from this report does not include other
memory requirements within HANA (e.g. calculation space).
OSS note 2296290 provides more detail/guide on how the
sizing program works, prerequisite, how to run it, and how
to read the summary report. One of the attached guide also
provide overview on HANA BW Scale Out.

Iterative Sizing
Run the sizing tool several
times with or without selecting
any option to compare results
of the clean-up/data reduction
activities:
Change the filename of the

purposes.
Result of each table are shown
in the reports Table Details,
broken down by row/column
types, and for each table estimated ABAP and HANA size.

Author: Terry Kempis


Editor: Linh Nguyen

There is also an CSV file


containing the Table Detail, for
easier comparison, containing
total_size, ABAP size, HANA
size.
Note that some of options can
only be implemented after the
migration, e.g. Dynamic
Tiering. However, it is a good
idea to run this several times
with several options to see the
impact if they are done after
the migration, i.e. what if.

Non-Active Data, Dynamic Tiering


This options are another what-if scenario, e.g. what if
dynamic tiering is used.

Non-Active Data
This is in relation to the new multi-colored - refer to blog
SAP BW on HANA : Data Classification (HOT/WARM/COLD)
If selected, there will be a section Non-Active data in the
report.

Author: Terry Kempis


Editor: Linh Nguyen

ITConductor.com

20

Dynamic Tiering
BW on HANA introduced the multi-temperature data. Briefly,
data are classified as:
HOT data accessed very often, should stay in HANA memory
WARM data infrequent access, using HANA dynamic tiering (i.e.
extended storage, extended table), e.g. data more than 2 years old
COLD data sporadic/infrequent access, using Near-line Storage
(NLS)

PSA tables and Change Logs are considered non-active

Dynamic Tiering - Brief


Dynamic Tiering (aka extended storage) is another way of
reducing HANA memory footprint by moving some data into
Dynamic storage server.
For example, data from an infocube which are more 12 months
old can be moved to the dynamic storage, hence only the current
years data are the only ones that occupy the HANA memory. This
is done by
1. defining another table with the same definition as the
current table, with additional extended storage clause.
2. moving the data from the current table to the extended
table
3. creating a view with a join of the current table and the
extended table. If an SQL issue a select SQL which include
data from the extended table, then it is retrieved from the
extended storage into the Dynamic Tiering servers
memory - but still does not occupy HANA memory

DMO, Guides
SUMs DMO (Database Migration Option) is the tool to update and
migrate anyDB (any Database) to HANA.
HINT: It cannot be used for pure migration purposes only! If your current
release/level already meet the HANA requirement and does not want to
do go the latest release/level, then at least update other package (e.g.
ST-PI) so that you will have stack xml which is needed by DMO.
Before embarking on doing migration using DMO, first go through the
following
SAP First Guidance - Using the DMO Option to Migrate BW on HANA,
Database Migration Option (DMO) of SUM - Introduction - it provides a
very good introduction of DMO and contains links to other related blog
(e.g. optimization, technical background).
All notes in this document and the steps followed in this migration
exercise were based on the cookbook, blogs and the references below.

DMO - more
DMOs migration repetition for testing purposes of the downtime phase
See: 4.3.4 Using the Migration Repetition Option for Testing of the DMO Guide

DMO supports MDC


The target database in DMO can be a tenant database. DMO has option to
create the target DB, if it does not exist yet.
DMO Unicode conversion
DMO can convert a non-Unicode system to Unicode at the same
downtime. Note that only single-code page is supported, not multi-code
(MDMP).

DMO SQL DDL generation


DMO generates the DDL in one of its phase, so there is no need to
manually run this.

Resetting DMO, source DB instance after migration


RESETing the DMO
After migration, the source database remains intact. Its on the state before the shutdown. If
for whatever reason, it can be used again after a reset which is provided by DMO. Note that
the reset will delete data from the target HANA DB.
Reference: DMO technical background
Source database after migration
After the migration testing, we installed another PAS pointing to the source database so we
ended up with two running systems:
1. A migrated system in HANA
2. The original source ASE system
The normal steps in installing a Distributed system are:
1. ASCS instance
2. Database Instance
3. Primary Application System (PAS)
But only step 1 and 3 are needed. Note that by skipping step 2, the profile parameter,
environment (env.csh) and DB (dbenc.csh) variables may have some missing items.
Fortunately, that DMO backup the source system versions, including the kernel for
reference/re-use.
This is handy for production copy sandbox for comparison purposes, but not on
production. Ensure that this is totally isolated from normal use.

DMO - Optimization
During the days of Combined Upgrade and Unicode
Conversion (CUUC) downtime optimization was a challenge.
You need to manually specify table split, which tables to do
first, etc.
With DMO, tools and features are available to reduce the
downtime, including optimized table splitting
Benchmark Tool
Migration repetition

Author: Terry Kempis


Editor: Linh Nguyen

ITConductor.com

41

Benchmarking tool
DMOs benchmarking (migration) tool is
available to simulate the export and import
process to check the migration rate/speed. It
has repetition option to enable optimization by
adjusting the process parameters (SQL uptime,
SQL downtime, R3load uptime, R3load
downtime).
This should be done before the DMO and
against a production copy which mirrors the
production setting, (i.e. capacity, network,
target HANA)
HINT: benchmark both export and import to
simulate production run

Migration Repetition/Optimizing downtime


DMO provides migration repetition to help
reduce the system downtime.
For each DMO run, the following files are
created
MIGRATE_UT/DT_DUR.XML - contains
statistics for each migrated table
UPGANA.XML

These files can be use for subsequent DMO run


to optimize and reduce the downtime. See
DMO Guide
Cookbook

DB).
Time zone
Make sure both source system and the HANA severs have the same time zone
settings and within SAP (transaction STZAC).
DB Free space
As a shadow system is created, there should be at least 50Gb database free space,
or more, depending on the existing components.
SAPLOCALHOST/Hostname
Make sure that the profile parameter SAPLOCALHOST matches the hostname in
SM51.
WARNING: Hostname 'XXXXXXXX' is different from hostname 'YYYYYYYY' system runs with!

=========== Perform Scale Up (Single Node) Prerequisite on SAP HANA if necessary ===========
*Action Required (if condition is met):*
*You decided to NOT run the SAP HANA Landscape Reorganization.
However, if you run an SAP HANA Single-Node system with scale-up, you must
manually import a file with specific SQL-information to enable the optimal
table partition.
Carry out the following procedure:*
1. Download the appropriate file that is in the attachment of the following
SAP Notes:
* For SAP Business Warehouse on SAP HANA, see SAP Note 1908075. From the
attachment TABLE_PLACEMENT_BW.zip, select the suitable SQL-file.
* For SAP Business Suite on SAP HANA or SAP S/4HANA, see SAP Note 1899817.
Choose the attachment: TABLE_PLACEMENT_ERP_* or TABLE_PLACEMENT_S4H_*
according to the version and SP level of the target system.
2. Edit the downloaded file by replacing all occurrences of $$PLACEHOLDER with
your SAP<sid>.
3. Import the edited files to SAP HANA using one of the following commands on
OS level of the managed system:
* */usr/sap/ABA/hdbclient/hdbsql -U SYSTEM -I <filename> -E 1*
* */usr/sap/ABA/hdbclient/hdbsql -U SUPER -I <filename> -E 1*
4. After the import, continue with the migration procedure.

Next Post-processing on the New System


Now that we have prepared the source BW system, and
We have completed the SAP SUM (Software Update
Manager) upgrade & migration using DMO (Database
Migration Option) for the BW system from anyDB to BW on
HANA.
Stay tuned for the next section Post-processing on the
Upgraded/Migrated System.

Introduction
This is Part 3 of the series of publication which provides an
overview and explanation of major steps and considerations
for BW on HANA migrations
Migrating a BW system from anyDB (any database) to HANA
involves
1. Preparatory work in the BW system
2. SUM DMO Tool for SAP Upgrade and Migration
3. Post processing on the migrated system

This part focuses on post-processing, which


includes standard tasks after upgrade and HANAspecific post-tasks.

Post-processing - general
After migrating a BW system to HANA, there are two general groups of
post-tasks
1. Standard tasks after a release upgrade or Unicode conversion
2. HANA-specific tasks

After the downtime processing AND before doing anything:


1. Create a backup of the database
2. Configure HANA parameter log_mode to normal

3. Configure HANA parameter enable_auto_log_backup to YES

Standard post tasks


Below are some post tasks after a release upgrade/or Unicode conversion.
The list is not exhaustive, not necessarily in sequence, and does not
include site-specific process.
Adapt dialog instances to the new release/kernel Run SECSTORE (OSS note 816861)
Run SICK

Configure SAINT parallelism (OSS note 1309506)

For each instances, run SM51 and SM21

RZ12 configure number of free WPs

Run SGEN (SAP_BASIS first, then the rest)

DB13 maintain standard jobs

Reconfigure/adapt 3rd party products

RSA1 check source systems - activate

Import profile parameters

Solution Manager configuration

Note that the DMO tool, automatically run RS_BW_POST_MIGRATION


during its post-processing phase, but there maybe a case of running some
steps.

HANA-specific post-tasks
The cookbook, SAP First Guidance DMO BW on HANA
lists down the tasks and steps in detail.
OSS notes, blogs that were referenced while doing the
steps, (i.e. to get more background information), are added
in this document.
Some of the tasks need to be a collaborative work with the
BW Administrators and Security team.

SQL syntax to list DBMS users assigned roles


select * from effective_roles where user_name = <DBMS_USER>

If you remove the assigned DBMS user through SU91, the DBMS user will notbe
deleted from the HANA side. Remove it through program RSUSR_DBMS_USERS

HANA-specific post-tasks - 9
Task - Convert InfoCubes into in-memory optimized

It is highly recommended to convert existing InfoCubes to SAP HANAoptimized Infocubes to reduce the data load. Note that after the migration to
HANA, all newly created InfoCubes will be automatically be SAP HANAoptimized Infocubes.
References:

HANA-specific post-tasks - 11
The following tasks were not performed in our migration, some of them
maybe required to take advantage of simpler data models on BW, and
especially with the new BW/4HANA, just announced by SAP in Sep-2016:
Converting DataStore Objects and Infocubes into advanced DSO
Convert MultiProvider to CompositeProvider

Summary
The SAP BW upgrade and migration to SAP HANA has over
100 steps, and each environment maybe a little different
based on the usage scenario and customer specific data
encountered. However, these publication seek to provide an
overview of the processes for planning and guidance so that
you can confidently create a roadmap for BW on HANA and
even next generation BW/4HANA migration involving:
Preparation of the source BW system
Carrying out the SAP SUM (Software Update Manager)
upgrade & migration using DMO (Database Migration
Option) for the BW system from anyDB to BW on HANA.
Finally, post-processing on the Upgraded/Migrated System.
GOOD LUCK!
