The SAP NetWeaver High Availability Cluster (NW-HA-CLU 7.30) integration certification for High Availability (HA) solutions certifies the Start/Stop infrastructure within HA-Setups (SAP NetWeaver Management Agents, Cluster-API). The goal is to establish a single HA setup scenario as reference for HA vendors, and to unify HA setups for SAP NetWeaver 7.x based on 7.20 DCK availability for ABAP, as well as for Java Application Servers.
With SAP NetWeaver 7.40 (SAP Kernel 7.42 or later is required) a new version of the integration scenario will be available for certification in July 2015. Besides providing some new commands in the API, some test cases have been enhanced and a brand new HA test tool is now available. The new NW-HA-CLU 7.40 will be downward compatible with the previous NW-HA-CLU 7.30 release.
High Availability Cluster certifications will only be offered for the new version 7.40 after July 2015.

SAP has introduced an integration certification program to certify the HA-interface cluster API of the SAP Start Service (sapstartsrv). Some important aspects of this certification are:
- Certify start/stop infrastructure within HA Setups
- Establish a single SAP HA setup scenario
- Unify HA setups for SAP NetWeaver 7.x based on 7.20 DCK availability (ABAP, Java)
- Clarify OS dependencies and 3rd party failover software
- Clarify available DB-specific HA solutions of third party vendors
- Clarify responsibilities of SAP and its partners, especially for support
These criteria aim to ensure compliant implementation of customer HA setups of SAP systems. Partners can extend and further optimize their solutions beyond this scope.
The SAP Start Service (sapstartsrv) provides basic management services for systems and instances and single server processes. Services include starting and stopping, monitoring the current run-time state, reading logs, traces and configuration files, executing commands and retrieving other technology-specific
information, like network access points, active sessions, thread list etc. They are exposed by a SOAP Web service interface named “SAPControl”.
The following sapstartsrv interface configuration provides functionality that the HA vendor solution has to be able to use in a customer environment:
