What about replication with CAL instances?


I would like to test the storage and the system replication with 2 SAP S/4HANA instances created on Azure with the CAL. I have already 1 instance running (SAP S/4HANA 1610 FPS01, Fully-Activated Appliance) and I would like to create another S/4HANA instance (the on-premise edition 1610 FPS01 this time) but with a smaller VM size, is it possible?

I don't think so but I didn't find an answer, so I'm asking, you never know...

Also, is it better to create the 2nd instance in the same VNET or to a different VNET?

Thank you. :)

Kind regards.

    Hi Abdelhak,

    The 30-day free trial is limited to one instance. So you can have two instances only if they are from two separate and still active trials.

    If you plan to connect the two instances, then it will be better to use the same virtual network.

    Best regards,

      Hi Stanimir,

      Thank you, now the DB is added in HANA Studio, but "the status cannot be determined" in HANA Studio, how can I fix that?
      And also, how am I supposed to know that the HANA DB was set up in MDC mode? When I deployed my first SAP HANA instance it was not the case.

      Thank you.

      Kind regards.
