Creating the SAP HANA Parameter File

You must create a parameter file when you:

  • Perform a cross-machine restore. This includes a restore for disaster recovery.
  • Perform a backup or restore for a multi-instance configuration.


  1. Create the SAP HANA BACKINT parameter file on the host where you installed the SAP HANA Agent in the iDataAgent directory.
  2. For information on required and optional parameters, see SAP HANA BACKINT Configuration Parameters.
  3. Create the /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig directory.
  4. On the command line, type the following command to link the file to the specified location Substitute param with the name of the parameter file.

    ln -s /opt/commvault/iDataAgent/param /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbconfig/param

  5. In the SAP HANA Studio, set the Backint data and log parameter files to the newly created parameter file. For information on how to configure the files, see Configure a Third-Party Backup Tool.

    Note: Enable the third-party log backup option. Set the option to true.
