Tutorial video

For those interested in SAP HANA system administration and changing system properties, we have updated our tutorial video on this topic for SPS 09 in the SAP HANA Academy, playlist System Administration. In this video, we explain how you can configure the INI files to set and unset SAP HANA system parameters using the SAP HANA studio administration perspective or the SQL console.

As documented, SAP does not recommended changing the default values of parameters unless stated in the documentation or instructed by SAP Support. For more information about frequently used parameters, see SAP Note 2036111. Particularly interesting is the attachment to the note, an excellent resource to the Frequently Used Configuration Parameters in SAP HANA.

More Information

Product documentation

Configuring SAP HANA System Properties (INI Files) is documented in the SAP HANA Administration Guide:  Chapter 2, System Administration.

The SQL syntax for changing system parameters is documented in the SAP HANA SQL and System Views Reference: ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION.
