HANA Express Edition 2.0 as secondary DB


I downloaded two systems: SAP NW 7.5 SP02 and SAP HANA 2.0 Express edition. I installed both systems on separate virtual guests (VirtualBox) with network setting: BRIDGED. The NW can PING IP of HANA. My goal is to connect Hana to NW as secondary DB. But unfortunately I can't establish connection from NW to HANA inside tx. DBACOCKPIT. I used SAP note ‘1597627 – SAP HANA connection’ to prepare NW environment but i still get error message ‘Broken Pipe’.

In short what I did:

  • added DBSL to location /usr/sap/NPL/SYS/exe/run
  • installed HDBCLIENT with command: hdbinst -a client -p /usr/sap/NPL/hdbclient -s NPL
  • setup environment variables: LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PATH
  • I use user name SYSTEM to establish connection, I prepared new user on HANA and user with the same name on NW but still the same error message
  • I setup HDBUSERSTORE with command: hdbuserstore SET DEFAULT <host>:<port> <user> <pwd>

It does not matter what i change I still get the same error: ‘Broken Pipe’

Is it possible to establish connection between these two systems. Maybe these training system have some limitations ?

Where can I get more details about this error message ?

Thanks and regards
