Urgent: Lotus Notes and TREX


We are planning to use SAP’s TREX to search for word documents and ppts embedded within Lotus Notes. However, we have a couple of queries regarding our requirement and would appreciate your help.

1) Is it possible to use the TREX server for indexing documents within Lotus Notes without an Enterprise Portal platform (For Ex., Is it possible to set TREX as the default search engine of Lotus Notes?)?

If the above is not feasible then please read requirement 2:

2) We are currently running Lotus Domino 6.5 and the portal platform is NW 04, SP15. I understand that there was a limitation of not being able to connect the portal with any Lotus Notes repository having version greater than 5.0.8. Does this restriction still exist?

Any help would be greatly appreciated and suitably rewarded.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hello Vibhu,

    regarding 1) in the notes client, the search button actually contains a dropdown. This dropdown list may also contain HTTP URLs (e.g. in the standard R6 client you find AIL, Altavista and some other search engines linked). You may think of adding the TREX URL also there

    regarding 2) please use the KM repository manager by Conet for doing so. To do so, please take a look athe the portal Content portfolio here on SDN or direcly access the business packgage at:
