After installation & licensing, run the below smoke test to ensure TSX is properly setup.

If operating SAP HANA 2.0 SP04 or above please check the details here first.

Identify all the OS user accounts that run the SAP system, the DB, and any OS-level users that facilitate the operation of the system, such as SIDADM, SAPserviceSID, SMDAgent, etc . Time travel will need to be activated for these accounts later in the process.

Shutdown both the SAP system app servers and the Database.

Note: replace SIDADM with the OS User accounts identified as running the SAP system.

# su - SIDADM
$ tsx set -u SIDADM -d -1
$ date

The time and date should be one day in the past.

$ tsx reset
$ date

The present time and date should be displayed.

If the above shows time travel on / off, TSX is working!

If the above fails, try the below.

a) Open a new shell / connection and re-try smoke test

b) If on Linux, run the below to fix file permissions and re-try smoke test.

$ sudo chmod a+r /etc/

If after a) & b) the smoke test still fails, email

Otherwise your Smoke Test is complete. TSX is fully setup. Begin time travelling!
