Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) provides the SAP HANA node verification feature to detect addition and deletion of SAP HANA nodes. After you verify the detected SAP HANA nodes, the backup client for ECS installed or uninstalled on each verified node.

  3. Click the SAP HANA Instances tab.
  4. Find the SAP HANA instance and choose More > View Details in the Actions column.
  5. In the upper-right corner of the SAP HANA Instance page, click Verify Node.
  6. In the Verify Node pane, verify node changes.
  7. Select nodes for which you want to install or uninstall the backup client for ECS.

In the Add Node pane, select the ECS instances on which you want to install a backup client for ECS and click OK.
