HANA DB failed to startup.

  • You tried to restart HANA DB via command: "HDB stop/start" and/or "sapcontrol -nr 00 -function StopSystem/StartSystem", none of them help.

  • You observed daemon/nameserver (etc) trace files and hdbdaemon.status file were not updated during HANA startup. 

  • You checked hdbdaemon.status, it contains old status information. You checked sapstart.log and sapstartsrv.log, it does not contain any related errors. 

  • You tried to rename hdbdaemon.status and sapstart.log according to KBA 2431472, it does not help.

  • You checked OS system log (/var/log/messages), no related errors were observed.

  • You tried to reboot Linux OS and then startup HANA DB, however, it makes no difference.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.
