Developer edition license period

My developer edition is becoming unusable every 30 days! I though the license period was for 90 days. Anyone able to confirm license period? Damned thing has become unreachable again today after the instance only being created on 24 September.

    Hi Ross,

    I have some doubts if this is related to expiring license. You can extend your developer license for an existing instance as explained here:

    Developer License expired? You can get a new one. This is how...

    I recommend however following steps to narrow down potential problem with existing instance :

    1. Check if you can connect with HANA Studio - this will allow seeing the status of HANA process

    2. If 1) is not possible you would need to establish SSH connection on OS level to the instance as explained in CAL FAQ:

    CAL FAQ - Specific questions for Amazon Web Services

    3. Check HANA processes status with the following command:

    /usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/sapcontrol -nr <Database_System_Number> -function GetProcessList

    Please, let me know the result of these steps so that I can recommend proper action here.

    Best Regards,

    • Hi,

      Whenever I find something I want to study, lets say BODS for migration purposes, I now grab an online access from someone like idesremote, might cost me $30 a month for shared access 24/7 with a full developer access. I recently updated my BRF knowledge to BRF+ and did exactly that with a CRM system. I could do all the workbench exercises and all the API based exercises no trouble at all on that system Getting access to the SAP system for the hub would as you say have cost me at least 2 to 3 thou. AND I am pleased to say the support is brilliant and the system 100% reliable 🤣

      Guess the old adage about there being more than one way to skin a cat certainly applies here.
