SAP BW/4Hana Trial - can not connect to instance

Hi all.

I am trying to get running a BW/4Hana Trial.

I have the AWS Account and setup the instance on SAP CAL.

According to the docs Io should be able to connect to the instance:


  1. In SAP Cloud Appliance Library, choose Instances to display the list of available solution instances.
  2. Choose Connect fort the solution instance you want to connect.
  3. From the Connect to the Instance dialog box, select the connection that you want to connect to the virtual machine.

Problem is that I can not find that "Connect" button or link

Did I mis something, am I blind or could the documentation not follow the endless agility of SAP development?
I also have tried to ping the external IP but did not get any response, so does also Eclipse.

Things I am also wondering about are

- why that CAL seems to be independent form the

- Is the Cloud Connector necessary for the BQ thing

I dug through quite a lot of manuals, but still missing the thread or have the feeling that they are not valid for one or the other exception.

Thanks for help in advance

Hello Dirk,

Please find in the "Prerequisites" section that Connect button appears only if:

  • the access point type is Default and the service is SAP GUI, RDP, HTTP or HTTPS

In the case of the solution "SAP BW/4HANA SP03 including BW/4HANA Content SP01 XT" only SSH is enabled.

Best Regards,

Thanks for Help

in the meantime the month testing is over and a developement system at work is in reach (earlier than expected).

Its only a question how fast the provider can cover the existing skeleton with BCT Flesh and solving access problems.

I guess I will wait until this is done.

Cheers Dirk
