TREX Name Server ?


Hi *,

I have a small conceptual question implementing a clustered TREX (2 hosts only).

I have 1 server running all tasks as Master and a 2nd server running an Index Server and a Preprocessing.

To my knowledge, the coordination between the servers goes through the Name Server on machine 1. This will distribute the load (search requests) etc to the 2nd machine and a 3rd if there was one.

However, in this scanrio (simple distributed TREX), there is only 1 web server - on the Master.

The documentation of SAP says that in the CM configuration in the portal, you can enter a Name Server only and exceptionally if you're using more than one Web server. Thus I cannot connect the Name Server of my Master to CM, but will connect it rather as a single host.

Question: If I'm not announcing the Name Server of the Master in CM, how does the load distribution take place to the Slave ???
