SAP HANA Express: installing binary version


I just spend hours installing the binary version of SAP HANA Express on SLES just to find that the license is fixed to system id HXE.

According to the ‘Installing Binary’ document you can freely choose a system id.

Execute hdblcm:

sudo ./hdblcm -s <SID> -H <HostName> --hdbinst_server_import_content=off

This works perfect until you want to install a license. ’SAP Sneak Preview License Key Request’ only issue licenses with system id HXE.

Now I’m stocked with a system that I cannot use for more that the trial period

How can I get a license for my system?
