Chapter 3. RequirementsThis section provides requirements of the IBM Systems Solution for SAP HANA.You must configure the integrated management module (IMM) for the server andthe corresponding network modules in your network based on the requirementfrom SAP. To perform the initial server configuration and installation, there areboth network and information requirements that you must obtain from your ITadministrator.The IBM Workload Optimized Solution for SAP HANA requires the followingnetworks (minimum requirements):v SAP Business Suite access to customer networkv SAP HANA internal communications (hananode)v IBM internal GPFS communications (gpfsnode)v IBM server management via integrated management module (IMM)Notes:v In a single node installation, the internal networks are connected to the server.No connection to any external infrastructure.v In a cluster installation, the internal networks are connected to the internal 10Gigabit Network Switch which is part of the IBM appliance.Network requirementsSingle Node ConfigurationThe server provides the following connectivity options in the standardconfiguration:v A 100 Mb or 1 Gb network connection using IMM interfacev Four to six 1GbE portsv Four 10GbE SFP portsOther configuration may be available upon request.In the single node configuration, depending on your network environment, the1GbE port or the 10GbE SFP port may be used for connecting the server to yournetwork. Any two NIC ports may be used for the connections to your network.Thus, two single, non-bonded ports must be assigned to the internal HANA andGPFS communications and must not be connected to your network.Clustered ConfigurationThe server provides the same connectivity options in the standard configuration.Other configuration may be available upon request.v Non-HA configuration: Each server uses two of the four 10GbE SFP ports forthe internal HANA and GPFS communications. Thus, two 10GbE SFP portsand four to six 1GbE ports are available for the integration into your networkenvironment.v HA configuration: Each server uses all 10GbE SFP ports for creating theinternal networks regarding HANA and GPFS communications. Thus, four to six1GbE ports are available for connecting the server to your network. The Copyright IBM Corp. 201413

integration of the appliance servers into your network can either be donethrough 1 Gigabit Ethernet switch delivered by IBM as part of the solution (e.g.the IBM G8052 1 Gigabit RackSwitch) or by connecting the servers to otherswitches provided by you.Note: If a 10 Gb uplink is needed or the redundant connections are required forhigher availability, additional 10 Gb Emulex adapters can be installed into theserver. Contact your IBM sales representative for more information.The following illustration shows a possible network configuration for the clusteredconfiguration.Note: The "Customer Switch Choice" labeled switches are either 1 Gigabit Ethernetadapter or 10GbE SFP switches provided by you or IBM. Make the switch uplinkredundant when possible.Network Time Protocol (NTP)v Clustered Configuration: NTP is mandatory and must be configured during theinstallation. All nodes have to run in the same time zone.v Single Node Configuration: NTP is highly recommended.Information requirementsBefore you configure the server and install SAP HANA, gather the followingnetwork information from your network administrator.Table 7.
