It’s 2020, and I have decided to release some more Ansible Roles to the public. These roles are extracts from a “master” role I had for configuring my (home) workstation just the way I like it. I’ve tidied them up and tried to make them a bit more reusable, and I’m trying to support other Linux Distros than just Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
If you have stumbled upon this site from some articles I have written then tried to find new stuff, you may have noticed that I haven’t posted a lot recently. There are many reasons for this, but the main one is that I just don’t feel like it.

I thought I would share a snippet of code that I have found useful for discovering all of the SIDs and Tenants running on an SAP HANA system running with Multitenant Database Containers (MDC). If you are running HANA 2.0 this is your default operating mode.
