    Hi Troy,

    AFL libraries are available but needs to be installed by the users in the TAR image for HANA express.

    However, VM image doesn't have it yet.

    We will be issuing a new patch shortly (in next few days) that will include AFL (pre-installed) libraries in the VM image.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.

    Kannan.

    • Thanks for the update, Kannan.

      I had previously checked the SYS.AFL_FUNCTIONS table and did not see any PAL entries so thanks for the confirmation.

      Will the AFL be pre-installed on both the server only and server + applications VM images?

      Also, will there be a notification when the new VM image is available?

      Troy

    Hi Troy,

    Based on PAL document: http://help.sap.com/hana/SAP_HANA_Predictive_Analysis_Library_PAL_en.pdf, the prerequisites to use PAL include enabling of script server. However, under HANA Express license, script server is disabled and cannot be turned on, so PAL functionality is not supported on HANA Express Edition.

    Thanks!
