HANA Express Edition and Predictive Analytics Expert Analytics

Has anyone ever successfully configured HANA Express Edition to work with Predictive Analytics Expert Analytics? Here are the steps for installing HANA Express Edition -- including “SAP HANA External Machine Learning Library” and “SAP HANA Automated Predictive Library”:

And here are all the configuration instructions that I could find:

I can connect Predictive Analytics Expert Analytics to HANA Express Edition, download data, filter data, but when I try to build a model I get "JDBC error 258" (attached) jdbc-error-258.jpg

I opened a ticket with SAP support, they didn't know what to do and responded: "SAP HANA express edition was designed for community support"

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your query. I believe this is now clarified on email. To sum it up,

    versions supported for EA are:

    1. SAP HANA 1.0 SPS12 revision 122.04+
    2. SAP HANA 2.0 SPS01 revision 37+
    Please let me know if you have any further queries on this one.

    Best Regards,

    • Yes, this issue is now resolved. Predictive Analytics Expert Analytics is not supported with the version of HANA cloud we are using, or with HANA Express Edition. So we are now planning to implement the new SAP "Data Intelligence" platform instead.
