XSA CLI push error


I am trying to push a tutorial app from development guide to XSA but get the following error:

ERR Error: Could not retrieve the download URL for Node.js: Error: certificate has expired

Any ideas what this could relate to?

Any input is appreciated!

    This error is not covered under HANA, If you were to open an incident for this it would be under BC-XS-RT and not HAN-DB.

    Here are some recommendations:

    1: Firstly you have to delete the old certificate.

    Delete the default certificates in the file system:



    Delete the certificate in the HANA secure store:

    Connect to the HANA database as SYS_XS_RUNTIME user. The user and password can be found in the XSA secure store, which can be read via xs-admin-viewsetup. If this is not available download the xs-backup script attached to SAP note: 2300937 to get the user/password information.

    If you are connected to the HANA Database as SYS_XS_RUNTIME execute:


    Check if the call was successful, if not there is perhaps already a newer version and then you have to execute:


    After this is done you should be able to restart the XS advanced services e.g. the xscontroller. If this will start a new self-signed certificate will be generated

    - Either you upgrade the XSA to the newer version and renames the system to the full qualified default domain.

    - You reinstall the system with the full qualified default domain.

    - Or you recreate the certificate with alternative names

    If this doesnt help open an incident under BC-XS-RT

    if someone still comes across this... I had the same isssue. The simple command "XSA reset-certificate" fixes the issue. As described in note 2243019.
