Replication between S/4HANA 1610 FPS01 and 1610 FPS00 - CAL

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to make my 1610 FPS01 appliance high-available by deploying a 1610 FPS00 appliance (everything running in Azure with CAL)? I will use the system replication for the DB, but what about NetWeaver and BI VM?

And what about hosts names? I will have to modify all the hosts names on the 2nd appliance, right?

Thank you.

The guide doesn't answer to my questions.

I know how to configure HA for SAP HANA based on SAP Netweaver ABAP, my question is for the JAVA stack of Netweaver and for SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform. And also about renaming hosts.

I found some docs about HA for Netweaver JAVA and BO but nothing about hosts renaming.


You can find the guides on how to configure the HA for JAVA stack here:

But basically, if you need the HA solution I don't think the CAL deployment is the best choice.

There is a plenty of the guides on the internet how to deal with HA, just use Google:


Thank you.

But why do you think the CAL deployment is not the best choice for HA?

I'm looking for the easiest way to deploy HA SAP landscapes on Azure, I didn't find an easiest way than CAL for now.


I just think it's easier to do it from scratch.

You need to make your SCS instance highly available and that requires the failover cluster. Of course, you can re-do some things that are already in the CAL, but in my opinion, that would require more time than setting it up from scratch. What benefits do you have by using the CAL?


I can deploy an entire SAP landscape by few clicks on Azure, that's the BIG benefit.

Doing everything from scratch on Azure seems to be very tedious. I didn't search more in depth on how to do that, but I have always heard that deploying a SAP landscape is not something you do in few hours.


You can read my blog to learn how to deploy the Azure infrastructure in half an hour :)

I fully agree that the CAL is perfect for simple installs, but in my opinion it is not the best for complex scenarios. But honestly I didn't look at this in last three months, so maybe something has changed.

EDIT: Sorry, I have corrected the link.
