    1. Instance Settings:
      • Display Name: A name for this particular instance of the Management Pack.
      • Description: Optional, but it can be helpful to describe multiple adapter instances of the Management Pack.
    2. Basic Settings:
      • Host: SAP HANA hostname or IP address.
      Note: The Management Pack supports IPv4 addresses only.
    3. Advanced Settings:
      • Collectors/Groups: Default Collector/Group is automatically selected. Click the drop-down menu if you want to run the collection on a different node.
      • Port: Default port is 30015.
        Note: The port number is bound to the instance of the database. For more information on ranges and rules for port numbers, see: https://help.sap.com/viewer/ports.
      • Standby Hosts: Enter individual hostname or list of hostnames to be used for failover.
        Note: The Standby Hosts field supports input of multiple hosts using a comma-separated list. If using a port other than the default, it can be appended using the following format: <hostname_or_IP1>:<port>,<hostname_or_IP2>:<port>.
      • SSL Config: Default setting is No SSL (SSL disabled); other choices are No Verify (SSL enabled/certificate not verified) and Verify (SSL enabled/certificate verified).
      • Support Autodiscovery: Default setting is True, this should not be set to False.
  5. Click Test Connection to test the configured connection information. Click Save Settings and Close to save your adapter instance.
