HANA Inconsistent SSFS

Hello HANA experts,

We recently upgraded our test HANA system from rel.91 to rel.93.

The upgrade completed successfully, but port-upgrade, database backups are failing.

Error message:

"Could not start backup for system HDU DBC: [447]: backup could not be completed: [1000013] Inconsistent SSFS!"

I have gone through SAP Note 2097613 which deals this with issue.

After necessary verifications, even attempted option B (Hard reset) to recovery from SSFS, but failed. 

By this I mean:

  • hdbcons "crypto ssfs resetConsistency" ended without any errors.


          ended with message

          SAP DBTech JDBC: [7]: feature not supported: Application encryption not possible without secure store

Have you faced this error before?  Highly appreciate your comments towards resolution.

Thanks in advance,


Shaji Narayanan

    Are you using the native HANA backups which are resulting in the errors?

    do you have an option to trigger a BACKINT backup for the HANA Database and see if that works?

    We had the same issue with revision 97.01 but we didn't follow the Hard reset option.

    We copied from a backup the old key and data SSFS, and after a restart, the issue was solved
