1974115 - Cannot add or remove an additional HANA host after the first addnode attempt failed

Symptom

*** ONLY USE THIS NOTE IF THE SYMPTOMS MATCH EXACTLY AS THIS COULD RESULT IN DATA LOSS **

 *** This note is only applicable for SAP HANA Platform 1.0 SPS7 and HANA Lifecycle Manager (HLM) ***

  1. Starting HANA Lifecycle Management
  2. Select the option for Add Additional Host

The first attempt to add an additional HANA Host fails with an error "Addition of host to the SAP HANA System failed". If this is not the case, then do not proceed with the suggested resolution.

The cause of this error is typically contained within the HLM log files.  Once that issue is resolved, if you try to add a host again, the following error will pop-up.

"The specified additional host 'hostname' is already a part of the HANA System but it should not be"

When you try to remove the node, it will fail with the error "Remove host from the SAP HANA system" failed with message "Execution of hdbremovehost failed"

The logs indicate that hdbremovenode tried to start the nameserver on the failed node and could not.
