1910131 - SAP HANA system ID "<sid>" is already in use when using hdbaddhost


When using hdbaddhost to add a new node to an existing SAP HANA system, after being asked for the system ID, the following error is displayed:

SAP HANA system ID "<your system id>" is already in use.

NOTE: best practice when adding or removing nodes to an SAP HANA system in revision < sp6 is to use and to not manually execute hdbaddhost. 
The landscapeDescription.xml, used by SUM and HLM is not updated when hdbaddhost is called manually.
