For problems that are related to a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) high-availability cluster for SAP, provide the following information to Cloud Customer Care as soon as you can:

  • A complete and detailed description of the problem or error, including:

    • The current application or system state.
    • The date and time when the error occurred.
  • Information about the cluster, including configuration details, system information, and diagnostic information.

    • From each node in the cluster, the TAR archive of the system report that you generate by running the SUSE supportconfig command line tool:

      supportconfig -l
    • The TAR archive of log files and node configurations that you generate by running the hb_report utility.

      Specify a start time (from time) that is approximately 1 hour before the issue occurred. Specify an end time (to time) that is at least an hour after the issue was resolved.

      Use the following command to run the hb_report utility, specifying the from time and to time on the '-f' and '-t' flags, respectively.

      hb_report -f "yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm" -t "yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm"
