HANA Studio is an important administrative and IDE tool to manage SAP HANA.
Where to get the HANA Studio Software?
You can download HANA studio from http://support.sap.com/swdc (requires S-user with download authorization)
Select Support Packages & Patches and Browse Download Catalog
Now traverse through the following links:
- SAP NetWeaver and complementary products
- SAP HANA
- SAP HANA PLATFORM EDITION
- SAP HANA PLATFORM EDIT. 1.0
- Entry by Component
- HANA Studio
- SAP HANA STUDIO 2
Download one of the SAR files (the revision should either match or exceed the HANA Database Server revision).
To extract the SAR file, you need SAPCAR executable.
Extract HANA Studio SAR File
Go to the folder where you downloaded the HANA studio SAR file and SAPCAR.EXE, and run the following command
SAPCAR.EXE -xvf IMC_STUDIO2_<Revision>_<Patch>_<Material>.SAR
where IMC_STUDIO2_<Revision>_<Patch>_<Material>.SAR is the SAR file you downloaded.
The SAR file will be extracted to SAP_HANA_STUDIO folder.
Install HANA Studio
Run hdbsetup.exe file from SAP_HANA_STUDIO folder.
Select which features you want to use based on your role. I am installing all the features.
Depending on the features you are installing the appropriate components are installed. Running Equinox P2 Director took about 5-10 minutes on my computer.
Finally you get a confirmation that the install was successful.
As I chose the HANA Studio to start up after installation, I get to see the first run right away.
You will be prompted to choose the workspace used by eclipse. I tend to have all my application profiles inside one folder (for portability reasons), so I changed the default location to my preference.
A master password is set on the first run. If you need to recover the password at a later point, you will need to answer a few questions. At this step, define what the questions and the answers should be.
Now we are all set to use HANA Studio and connect it with the HANA applicance/database.
