Hi all,

I have a requirement to re-send all failed messages automatically.

I've read from blog 2728 that there exists 2 out-of-the-box mechanisms in XI - IS_Retry and RSXMB_RESTART_MESSAGES.

My question:

1. IS_Retry: How do I verify that this is running? When I perform a manual re-start, I see a node "Restart:Message Branch According to Receiver List (Version xxx). However, I do not see the same when I do not perform a manual restart. So how do I know if the failed message has been re-sent?

2. RSXMB_RESTART_MESSAGES: I have scheduled this report to run every hour.

a) From SM36, I can see that the report is being scheduled and running. However, how do I verify that the failed messages are being re-started? Can I see this in SXMB_MONI?

b) The maximum number of re-tries is controlled by the configuration in SXMB_ADM -> Specific configuration 'DELETION' 'MAX_VERSION' 'BATCH_RETRY'. I have the DELETION category, but I do not have this parameter/subparameter. I do not have the report RSXMB_CREATE_CONF_ENTRIES3 either. As advised in /people/sap.user72/blog/2005/11/29/xi-how-to-re-process-failed-xi-messages-automatically , I can run the above-mentioned report to generate the parameters. But I do not see this report in my setup.

Please help.

    1 --> IS_RETRY is a paramter that should be set in SXMB_ADM --> Integration Engine Configuration. If there is any error, and the message has been restarted automatically, you will see the Restart of the message when you see the open the message in MONI. It will have separate branch for Restart.

    2. A) Same as 1 , but you need to schedule the job. Need not set the Integration Engine Parameter.

      I scheduled this report to run periodically every 2min. Each time this is executed - by looking at SM37, the "Man. Retry Ctr" column in SXMB_MONI of the error messages are incremented. Additional entry in SXMB_MONI is reflected. Retry stops when "Man. Retry Ctr" reaches 21.

      >>this stops aftr 21 because this limit set in your system you can increase this limit in the repot ,to do that you nedd to copy std report to Zreport program and increase the limit.

      1. Manual click of "Restart" button in SXMB_MONI:

      Additional entry in SXMB_MONI showing message has been restarted.

      >>yes our correct

      2. IS_Retry: Not sure how to monitor this.

      >> you should see in SXMB_MONI what the IS_rety value in SXMB_ADM. that many times it should retry i have feeling that its value right now is Zero so it not retrying
