Provisioning with the VMware Adapter for SAP Landscape Management allows the user to take source SAP systems and either clone or copy the system to create new target SAP systems.
Note: When you use SA-API to instantiate or provision a SAP system, the Landscape Management (LaMa) must be configured to use the VLA Appliance as the only DNS server.
Note: During SAP workload provisioning operations, copy or clone, the classic naming scheme for network interfaces can cause the target clone system to be unavailable for LaMa. This results in a failed provisioning operation. This can happen in a multi-network interfaces setup if LaMa is not connected to all networks of the source system. Due to changed MAC addresses, the target clone system may have different mapping of network interface names to networks compared to source system. To keep the same network interface names on the target clone system, it is necessary to enable Consistent Network Device Naming in the source system. For more information see Consistent Network Device Naming (CNDN).
