0 HANA Express Edition only VM, not able
to reach from local host
Dec 10, 2016 at 06:32 AM 1k

I have hxe.ova imported, up and running in vmware player locally, with the
network set to bridged and IP properly obtained. I have also turned off the
firewall at SuSE level just to ensure smooth development, for starters. (/users/37108/satishkandi.
Now, I am able to reach the IP of the guest VM from the host operating

system (Windows 8.1) and vice versa.
However, the eclipse setup is not able to reach the HDB.
HDB info command on the server shows all servers to be up and running.
Please advise as to how I can get the connection working.

 Hello,
My local host has IP and guest VM is running at

I have followed the steps listed in that link till setting up of /etc/hosts files at both guest and host
operating systems and ping works fine.
I have also installed a 64 bit SAP HANA client locally (since my OS is 64 bit). The ODBC administrator
window lists the HDBODBC and allows configuration till the connect part. The exception on connect
from HDB ODBC is
Communication link failure;-10709 Connected failed (RTE:[89006]
System call 'connect failed, rc=10061:No connection could be made because the target machine
actively refused it ( ("
The error I am getting from Eclipse is "The system could not be reached. The logon data could not be
Based on above messages, I have turned off the firewall at both machines. Thus, at least the ping
works both ways.
Any pointers?

 Hi Satish,
From the HDB information you have provided, it looks like you are using HANA 1.0 SPS12.

Were you able to successfully execute HDB sql?
hdbsql -i 00 -d SystemDB -u SYSTEM -p HXEHana1
Were you using the same instance number 00 to connect using eclipse or 90? Please make sure to use
00 as described in the documentation for SPS12. Revert back incase of any further issues.

 Hi Satish,
FYI: there is a full playlist on the HANA Academy about the express edition, which covers most of the

issues you might encounter.
If you cannot connect with Eclipse running on your host to express running on the guest (VM), it could
be that a firewall is blocking the port access. Are you using a Windows PC with the Firewall on by any
chance? Try stopping the Firewall service and see if you can connect. If so, you have to configure the
Firewall to allow for port traffic from VMware.
