It says it's warning, not an error, so I think you can continue.

It just informs you that:

a) VMWare is not supported for this installation - you can check supported environments here: com/docs/DOC-59383

b) your storage is not prepared for HANA installation and will be deployed to the default directory /hana. In case you have special storage (like SSD disks) available, it should be mounted to this partition.

If this is not a production system you can continue.

i understand bro,

kindly help me one more, i can`t see my sda2 (40GB Primary Partition) anywhere in file but it shown in YaST2 Partitioner (Screenshots are attached)


In the picture from YaST you can see that there is no mount point assigned.

You need to click on edit and assign the mount point (for example /hana).

But I can see another problem there - your primary partition (with mount point /) has only 2 GB. I think this is a bit too low value. You should re-install the whole SLES without creating any additional partitions.

If your question is answered, please mark the correct answer.

i have been mount the drive with home, but it again not shown

also, I re install my OS but it create 3GB partition by itself. not asking me to make partition.file-system-sda2-not-shown1.jpg


Can you please post the results of df -h command?

When you install suse you need to choose that you want to partition the storage by yourself. There should be an option like cutom partitioning.
