3092771 - HANA license invalid after unregister the secondary site


  • After unregister or cleanup a system replication site, the HANA license got removed or is invalid.

  • Prerequisite: any of these commands were executed.
    • hdbnsutil -sr_unregister
    • hdbnsutil -sr_cleanup

  • Such a reset can be observed in the traces:

  • In combination with the "--force" option, unfortunately cannot be guaranteed that the temporary license mentioned in SAP Note 2211663 can be put into place. For that reason, an invalid license error can be received.
