Hana XS Engine Installation

Hello Experts,

Currently I have a requirement to install Hana XS engine. The Hana version is HANA2.0 SP02.Presently the Database doesn't have any XS engine and running with the below services.

hdbdaemon | hdbcompileserver|hdbindexserver|hdbnameserver|hdbpreprocessor|

hdbwebdispatcher

What are the possible ways to install a XS Engine to our existing Hana Database?
I have searched some blog and bit confused over here. All it says about installing
XS Engine Advance runtime.
I referred the blog "

https://blogs.sap.com/2016/02/15/sap-hana-xs-advanced-installation-guide-through-resident-hdblcm/"
According to this If I go for XS advance one then additional services will be installed

hdbxscontroller, hdbxsexecagent, and hdbxsuaaserver

But my requirement is to install only the normal XS Engine with the service "hdbxsengine".

I tried running the hdblcm >> Install/upadte compoent option for existing DB . But it is only giving the option "Install SAP HANA XS Advanced Runtime version 1.0.63.292045"

Pleases suggest.

Best Regards,

Debaditya

    Finally I was able to get the classic XS Engine service in my Hana DB. Actually XS Engine comes as an Embedded service
    with Index Server in case of MDC.

    So it was already there in the database, embedded with Index Server. I had to separate the XS Engine service for the tenant database.
    Now the Classic XS Engine is up and running.

    Hello Debaditya,

    Although you are not using the SAP HANA, express edition I believe this blog should still help you to enable XS Classic on your HANA system:

    Of course, the path to the HANA installation packages will be different.

    Best regards

    • Hello Debaditya,

      I don't think it is possible to install HANA without the XS Server. Therefore, to enable it, you only have to set the instances property of the xsengine section in the daemon.ini configuration file to value 1.

      Best regards
