SUM can't start automatic due to secure mode

Post by Hay Bouten »

When starting the Lifecycle Management the following pop-up is displayed.
SUM running in secure mode.

If you want to start SUM automatically and avoid this pop-up you need to store the keystore password in the catalina.properties file.

There are two solutions to fix this 'problem'
  1. Before starting Lifecycle Management make sure that on the HANAA server SUM is started manually. On the HANA server you can start SUM using the <sid>adm user account. Excute the following commands:

    Code: Select all

    su - <sid>adm
    cd /usr/sap/<SID>/SUM
    ./sum.sh      (During startup SUM will ask for the keystore password.)
  2. SUM can be started automatically when Lifecycle Management is started from within the SAP HANA Studio. To assure that the automatic start of SUM is possible the keystore password needs to be stored in the catalina.properties file on your HANA server. To create this catalina.properties file perform the following commands:

    Code: Select all

    cd /usr/sap/<SID>/SUM/config
    touch catalina.properties
    echo keystore.password=******* > catalina.properties      (Replace ******* with the actual password)
    chmod 400 catalina.properties
    
More detailed information on the catalina.properties file can be found in the SAP HANA Automated Update Guide for SPS5 on page chapter 2.1.
