HANA Express 2.0 SP3 XSA installation fails (VM)

638 Views Last edit Jun 21, 2019 at 06:56 AM 6 rev

Hi guys,

I am trying to install HANA Express 2.0 SP3 with XSA on my notebook. The hypervisor (Virtual Machine) I use is "VMware Workstation 15 Player".

The installation fails at the step "Check/Wait for Cockpit app to start". It says: "FAILED to communicate with XS Controller" It also says: "Please start required Cockpit apps and rerun"

Any idea how I start the Cockpit apps and how to rerun this Cockpit registration? Does anyone experienced the same and found a solution for this?

I've followed the installation steps, that you can see in this Blog:

Same steps in a YouTube clip:

My notebook has:

  • 2,8 GHz CPU with 4 Cores
  • 32 GB RAM
  • Windows 10 Home 64 Bit
  • 320 GB free disc space

In VMware I've granted GB RAM, which should also be sufficient.

Kind Regards
Mark André
