What steps did you do to resolve the error? Did you maintain the keystore as displayed?
Is your HANA configured with SSL?

First thank you for your answer ;

I am following the official tutorial of SAP. I am now in the step: "Connect to SAP HANA on Cloud" that can be found in the link:

When I attempt to connect to HANA on Cloud with HTTPS, the configuration tool doesn't allow me to automatically download and import the SAP HANA server certificates into the Data Provisioning Agent keystore.

So, I have to do it manually.

The problem is that, the tutorial mentions how to download the certificate for hana in sap cloud with the following link "https:// ." but not for hana on google cloud platform



so from you're saying I understand you have HANA deployed on GCP (IaaS).

Can you try just to disable both ticks:

HANA on Cloud


And check if that works?

When I disable ( Hana on Cloud & Use HTTPS)

I have this error !

Can you reach HANA from the server where DP agent is installed?

Can you please run the following command:

telnet 39041

If your connection fails I would check if the port is open on your firewall (in both VM and GCP)

Thank you for your help Bartosz Jarkowski , I'm now able to connect my dp agent to Hana ;

but when I try to register my agent , I have the following error :


Do you have any insights about this error ?

Many thanks in advance


Can you try to ping the Agent Hostname? If yes, can you telnet there on port 5050?

This might be firewall issue.
