SAP Enable Now, consumption option 1704 SP02 installation error

Good day all!

SAP released the long-awaited patch SP02 for SAP Enable Now, now it has the ability to connect to HANA 2.0 (before the patch was the ability to connect only to HANA 1.0).

In previous versions in the WEB-INF directory there were no connection settings to the HANA database. In the directory with the patch there is an updated Installation Guide (for manager hana), and there is no any word about these DB settings.

They look like this:

db.jdbc.url=<JDBC path to database>
db.jdbc.schema=<schema name>

I specified the connection settings:


Also, I changed entry in db.jdbc.url entry: jdbc:sap://hostname:port?reconnect=true&timeout=0 (copy from HDB Studio)

after the launch of Tomcat, the application was installed and STARTED but does NOT work. When I enter to application link I get Maintenance page:

"This service is currently in maintenance mode. Please excuse any inconvenience and try again later. We will be back soon."

Has anyone encountered such a mistake? How to solve this issue?

If I just delete DB settings, application can not be installed.

Tomcat version: 8.5.11
JRE version 8.1 131
Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013

Hi Abay, what changes did you have to make?


Hi Jason,

1. first be sure that enable now installed and run, and when you enter enablenow page you get Maintance mode

2. open your browser and put adress for example: http://localhost:1080(or 8080 port of tomcat)/enablenow(folder of unpacked enable now manager application)/server_install_wizard.html

3. Installation will be started


Thank you!! This is great and working now!


All this is described in the Manger (HANA) - Installation Guide under chapter 4.3 and 4.4 Procedure (starts wtih page35). This you can find under


Hi Thomas!

Maybe I was not careful, but at the time of downloading the update and documentation, I did not find the information that is now available in the guide
