Once the HANA-SPS_HDB00 resource has been successfully created and extended to node-b, the LifeKeeper resource panel should look similar to the following.

- Right-click on the SAP-SPS_HDB00 resource and select Create Dependency… from the drop-down menu.
For Child Resource Tag, specify the root resource of the resource hierarchy being used to failover the SAP HANA virtual IP/hostname. The precise resource name used in this step will depend on resources created in the subsection of Create SAP HANA Primary Database Virtual IP corresponding to your chosen cloud platform.
Click Next> to continue, then click Create Dependency to create the dependency.
The resulting hierarchy will look similar to the following:
