software agent framework/TREX

hi friends

In CRM 5.0 if we go for indexing the system asks for the hostname and ip address of the server. we have istalled TREX on a different server. i have 2 questions:

1. as the host name and ip address are not being populated what can be the reason for that?

2. is it necessary to install TREX on the same CRM server or it can be installed on some other server and used in CRM

thanx & regards

    Prevent Duplicates in BP with BAS and TREX:

    To prevent duplicates from being created in transaction BP

    - set up the TREX connection, indexing, and all that stuff and test it with program RS_SIC_CONFIGURATION_TEST. This works as expected.


    Setting up Duplicate Prevention

    To use duplicate prevention, you must perform the following steps:

    Index the Existing Data

    Before you can use duplicate prevention for existing data, you must perform initial indexing. To do this, the system stores the attributes of the data model of the business partner that are relevant for the search in the search engine together with the content. Using the business partner data, the system checks in the search engine whether there is a possible duplicate for each newly created or modified business partner.

    To start the initial indexing, start program SIC_BAS_RSADRINI (transaction SE38) with the following parameters:

    Field Name Entry

    Object Type BUT000

    Object Subtype PARTNER

    Index Pool Table BUT000

    Index Pool Field PARTNER

    Service Name NORMALIZE_INDEX

    Service Profile Profile defined in the configuration of the services

    Define Settings for Duplicate Prevention

    To use duplicate prevention, you must perform the following actions:

    ● Search and Classification (TREX)

    TREX must be fully installed and configured.

    ● Search Engine Service (SES)

    You must perform the following activities in SES (transaction SES_ADMIN):

    u2022 ○ Enter the server for TREX (Goto ® Customizing ® System Settings).

    u2022 ○ Enter the delivered index BAS_BUPA. Use CL_IC_INDEX_SES as class and make any further required settings (Goto ® Customizing ® Business Objects and Indexes).

    u2022 ○ Activate index BAS_BUPA (Index ® Create/Activate Indexes). The system creates an index ID according to the naming convention of the SES in which system information is integrated in the name as well as BAS_BUPA (for example, nwt_003_bas_bupa__1).

    ● Configuration of the Services

    The shipped services are already fully configured. To change the configuration of the services, perform the IMG activity Information Consistency Configuration in Customizing for Information Quality Management.

    ● Business Address Services (BAS)

    To use BAS for duplicate prevention, you must perform the following activities under Application Specific Settings in Customizing for Information Quality Management:

    u2022 ○ Activate Duplicate Check and Determine Limit for BAPIs

    u2022 ○ Set Limit for Duplicate List in SAP Dialog Boxes

    u2022 ○ Business Address Services (BAS) Configuration

    ● Activate Business Add-Ins

    Activate the given implementations for the following BAdIs (transaction SE18):

    u2022 ○ BAdI ADDRESS_SEARCH implementation SIC_ADDRESS_SEARCH

    u2022 ○ BAdI ADDRESS_UPD_TREX implementation SIC_ADDRESS_UPD_TREX

      thanks so much for the reply.but our problem is not regarding the duplication prevention,we are encountering the problem while configuring the SAF (software agent framework)

      what we have done is installed the TREX on sepereate server and now after doing that we are trying to configure the SAF wizard where the system is asking two entries

      Host IP adress


      these ntries are corrosponding to HTP,Index<Queue server

      please tell now what entries should be maintained in these two, name and port number,

      since we can not manually give these entries as it seems that these entries are inherited after we instal TREX,but right now entries are missing ,so thats why we are asking should we maintain TREX installation on same CRM server where transactional data is kept

      please keep in mind that we are working on CRM version 5.0

      any help will definitely be appreciated

      best regards
