    What is your experience ? Can I install Hana and Application Server on one server (one hardware) for productiv systems?
    What is SAP’s recommendation?

    Many thanks

  3. Rabih Nasr says:

    so where is the installation steps

  4. Mike says:

    I have a question
    for the Hana installation is usually /usr/sap/SID linked to /hana/shared.
    A daily backup is stored under /usr/sap/SID/HDB/backup, it is then linked to /hana/shared.
    The /hana/shared directory is then always full.

    Does /usr/sap/SID/HDB/backup have to be linked to /hana/shared/ ?

    Many Thanks
