Restoring SAP HANA Data


SAP HANA must be restored if the data volume or log volume of the SAP HANA system is unavailable, or other exceptions occur in the SAP HANA system.

This section uses an SAP HANA system with SAP HANA Studio installed on a Windows ECS as an example to describe how to use the backup data to restore SAP HANA.

For details about operation requirements and notes, see SAP HANA Database Backup and Recovery released by SAP.


  1. On the SAP HANA Studio web page, right-click the SAP HANA system to be stopped and choose Configuration and Monitoring > Stop System from the shortcut menu.
  2. On the page that is displayed, set Shutdown Type to Soft and click OK.
  3. Enter the administrator account for logging in to the SAP HANA system as prompted.

    For example, if the SAP HANA SID is s01, the administrator username for logging in to the SAP HANA system is s01adm.

  4. Right-click the SAP HANA system to be restored and choose Backup and Recovery > Recover System from the shortcut menu.
