XI with different clients

Hello,

i have a XI with a client 001 that is defined as 'Integration Server' in my SLD.

Can i create a new client (for example 100) that also works as an 'Integration Server'?

In:

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/e1/0c733cb7d61952e10000000a11405a/frameset.htm

It is said that:

In other clients, you can configure the Integration Engine in such a way that its task is simply to send and receive messages.

What does it mean?

Thanks and regards

Patrick

    Sorry, maybe i was not clear enough..

    Let me describe the scenario again in a new version:

    System A (client 200)

    -


    >

    XI (client 001 [Integration Server]; client 100 [Application System])

    -


    >

    System B (client 300)

    Can i send now from A to the XI client 100 to realize this scenario and if yes what i have to configure?

    Hi Patrick,

    no, thats not possible. You can have only one IS, the other clients have to be "Application Systems". In that role they can send and receive msgs via the IS.

    Hi,

    You cant have diffrent clients on the Integration engine because the main purpose of the integration srever is to recevie and send message(Monitering). So if you create other client then it will become the application system. So the integration engine is a runtime component of the XI and has task of receiving, processing and forwarding XML messages.

    Hi

    The Integration Engine on the Central Exchange Infrastructure system is configured as the Central Integration Engine and is known as the Integration Server.

    All other Integration Engines are configured as Application Systems.

    So this is not possible i believe.

    Thanks

    So if i have a second client (for example 100) on my XI and i define it as an 'Application System'.

    If i have for example now a scenario System A-> XI -> System B defined i my XI.

      Hi Patrick,

      in your case you will be able to send messages out of client 100 (Business system A) via the XI client 001 (Integration Server) to another business system, or to receive a message from another business system via the XI Client 001 (IS) in your client 100 (Business system A).

      That means you can use your other clients on the XI System to play the role of a business system (which will be either a client(Outbound) or a server(Inbound) against the XI system running on one dedicated client).

      Hope this is what you are looking for.

      Best regards,

      Silvia
