yesterday HANA Version SPS7 was released by SAP. This new SupportPackageStack is empowered to support storage snapshots.
Are there any activities for SnapCreator Plugin HANA?
I am currently working on this plug-in and it is currently in testing phase.
Our plan is to release it as a community plug-in with Snap Creator 4.1 NetApp release.
Please reach out to me if you have an urgent need and if a customer is looking to get hands on it before that time-frame.
I can provide you access to the plug-in but the new plug-in is a java plug-in and wouldn't work with the Snap Creator 4.0.
Also, there is an issue in the Snap Creator 4.1 community release due to which the plug-in wouldn't work with it as well.
So, the plug-in is only usable with the Snap Creator 4.1 NetApp release which is expected to come out by 2nd week of January.
HANA plug-in is available for download @ Snap Creator community on Github.
Here is the path to the tar package hana_community_plugin.tar.gz:
This package has a install.sh script which can be used to install both the plug-in and its GUI.
The package is only available to SC community members, if you want to join the community goto: www.snapcreator.com.

in current version of HANA plugin the login will be done with USER/PASSWORD. Why do you don't use the hdbuserstore .... For hdbuserstore you only have to know the key ... so you don't have to think about password changes and it's more secure.
I'm a little bit confused ... I thought official 4.1 from now is already supporting HANA storage based snapshots which is a new feature came with SPS7 or is it necessary to install the community plugin on top of it to get the SPS7 functionality?
No, Snap Creator Framework v4.1 ships only with HANA plug-in which supports HANA sps06, the built in plug-in doesn't support storage snapshots in new sps07.
We have a new community plug-in which is re-written and supports Storage snapshots and sps07 functionalists. This plug-in is currently getting tested, both internally by us and externally by customers.
I am continuously working on improving it and we plan to ship it with the next release of Snap Creator.
