openSAP HANA 7 exercise 2.8 - service for the hdi container is not available after mtar deployment


Installation scenario: Hana express edition on preconfigured VM on my laptop.

I've downloaded the mtar file from github as indicated in the exercise. I deployed the mtar via XS CLI using ''xs deploy <file> --use-namespaces". I encountered an error was regarding the task "deploy" not being executed for the mtar.

12 Aug 2020, 14:13:10 | ATTENTION | XSA_ADMIN | Failed to stage app 'openSAP.CentralDB.db' [Org 'HANAExpress', Space 'SAP'].

12 Aug 2020, 14:13:10 | ERROR | XSA_ADMIN | Failed to stage droplet with id 1 of app 'openSAP.CentralDB.db' [Org 'HANAExpress', Space 'SAP']. For more information see '/hana/shared/HXE/xs/controller_data/controller/tracing/droplet/4ae76c3c-2e55-436d-8382-5ffed6da1ff1-stdout' and '/hana/shared/HXE/xs/controller_data/controller/tracing/droplet/4ae76c3c-2e55-436d-8382-5ffed6da1ff1-stderr'.

I then tried the command again, but got the error that deployment was cancelled because nothing was changed/updated in the mtar file. I navigated to the XSA Cockpit via webide, space "SAP" - I saw the application already there, so I restaged and started the app.

I proceeded with step 2, trying to add a new service connection, but the service isn't available.

Did I miss anything? Please advise, thanks!

    The xs deploy does several things. It not only stages and starts the application but also creates and binds service instances. Just restaging and starting the application might well not fix the issue.

    You need to know why the initial deployment failed. Those linked logs in the original error message are critical to knowing what went wrong. Without them all we know is there was an error but not what that error was.
