HANA not starting after host rename.

Hello Experts,

I have renamed my HANA host to a new name. (I can ping it, and maintained in the /etc/hosts)

Has anyone faced issue when after the rename, HANA does not comes up, the nameserver has the below error log:


unclean shutdown of service instance with pid 258840
service startup...

searching for master nameserver sapsidhdb:30101 ...

    • Thanks Yuksel, I referred the same note while rename.

      So, just that everyone knows, I could not fix this so I had to do a reinstall HANA and then recover it from the backup.

      If anyone has a fix, please update us here.

    I fixed it by exporting the topology to file changed it by Texteditor(for example hostname, SID or landscapeid) and imported it again.

    I run the following commands as Hana <SID>adm


    hdbnsutil -exportTopology myExport.txt


    hdbnsutil -importTopology myExport.txt

    Hope this helps
