Hi there,

I am trying to login to S4 HANA 1709 cloud via the appliance library but keep getting the following error message after entering the Access and secret keys. The error message I get is shown below;

"Invalid account credentials or no permissions for the Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Web service of the cloud provider. You need to have the EC2 service enabled and the following roles assigned to your IAM user: AmazonEC2FullAccess, AmazonVPCFullAccess, ReadOnlyAccess, and AWSAccountUsageReportAccess. For more information, you can visit our FAQ page (".

Also, does anyone know how I can access the on premise version of S4 HANA 1709?

Many thanks,

Hello Cosmas,

the SAP S/4HANA 1709 appliances in the SAP Cloud Appliance Library are the on-premise versions of SAP S/4HANA (only the delivery way is hosted in the cloud).

There are two for S/4HANA 1709 right now:

SAP S/4HANA 1709 Fully Activated contains demo scenarios, a Fiori launchpad and other pre-configured things.

SAP S/4HANA 1709 contains only HANA and an ABAP stack (no demos, no Fiori).

For the AWS credential problems, please follow the hints of Simeon.

Best, Joerg

Hi Guys,

I have been trying to launch my S/4 HANA SYSTEM however I am getting the below messages:

Failed Operation Start

On Step

Check Available Resources

Cloud Provider

Microsoft Azure


The subscription policy limit for resource type 'Standard ESv3 Family vCPUs' was exceeded. The limit for resource type 'Standard ESv3 Family vCPUs' is 10 per subscription, the current count is 0, and the requested increment is 32. Please contact Microsoft Azure support to enable the required resources.

Maybe I must use a different platform, its frustrating. This thing has been on air for almost three weeks and guys at AZURE are battling to help me.

Hello, from the message i see you try now with MS Azure account. There are default account limits which you have to request for increasing due to the current needs:



I managed to get the connect button and activate however I am trying to log-on via the gui and I cant go pass Step 9b as per the SAP S/4 HANA 1709 Fully Activated Appliance guide.
