HANA Express - SDI Install for GCP

I recently setup HANA Express via CAL for google cloud, but I seem to be having issues installing SDI.

I tried to initially download the "sdi.tgz" from the built in HANA Express download manager via the VM, but I ran into an issue with the JVM being 1.6 (1.8 needed).

So then I got the windows HANA Express download manager and downloaded the "SAP HANA Smart Data Integration" package for Linux/x86-64, image virtual machine, which downloaded sdi.tgz.

I then copied over the sdi.tgz and extracted the contents on the VM.

When I tried to install SDI, I received the below error message. Has anybody encountered this before? If so, what was the solution to get past this error?

After looking up the solution version information on CAL, it uses HANA Express 2.00.031.00.

I tried to look up the different HANA express SDI versions available but couldn't find any information on that.

HANA_EXPRESS_20/install_sdi.sh 
Cannot install SAP HANA smart data integration.  This SAP HANA smart data integration version is not compatible with your installed HANA, express edition version.

    For anyone that is wondering -

    I was able to get past this issue. The download manager on the HANA Express server was correct.

    I ended up updating the JVM on the machine using the below packages

    - java-1_8_0-openjdk

    - java-1_8_0-openjdk-devel

    It's worth noting that the javac configuration must also be set to 1.8 or else the download manager won't work.

    To check what java is being used, you use the below commands:

    alternatives --config java

    alternatives --config javac

    Once I did that, I was able to run the below command:

    HXEDownloadManager_linux.bin linuxx86_64 vm sdi.tgz
