3 Steps to Setting up Your SAP HANA Journey

Migrating to SAP HANA is a big step. Migrations are complex processes that can interrupt production and create the risk of losing data. Many companies have put off planning for their SAP HANA migration because of the pandemic. PricewaterhouseCoopers found that only 25% of companies surveyed have already migrated to S/4HANA. However, the longer such a major project is delayed, the greater the chance for error. Preparation is the key to making a successful move to the latest generation of SAP HANA technology, if that is the right path for your company.

7063-CR1 HMC Loses date after power outage

This is a weird one that we ran into here at Clear Technologies. Backstory Customer had planned prolonged power outage and after restoring power and booting the system it had lost it's date. It is very rare because it can only occur on certain days of the year, roughly 6 of them when power is turned off at the end of one month and turned back on the next month, even if that's just a couple hours apart. Truly a rare encounter for sure. Below is more details and fix to the problem.   https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/7063-cr1-hmc-incorrect-date-and-time-when-powered-back-after-being-powered-period-time  

VIOS 3.1x upgrade issues

There is a known problem after upgrading your VIOS using the viosupgrade tool. IF your media repository resides on rootvg, which is often the case, it will no longer exist post upgrade. So you can either move it to non-rootvg disks, or save off/copy it's contents elsewhere and recreate it after the upgrade. I did find additional details on this and it is available at: https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/viosupgrade-virtual-media-library-lost-after-viosupgrade There is another lessor known issue when upgrading and utilizing SEA and VLAN tagging. Details are here:  https://theibmi.org/2020/07/16/new-vios-releases-affect-the-shared-ethernet-adapter-sea-functionality/
