We are setting up a HA installation consisting of a clustered DB/ASCS package and a bunch of non-HA dialog instances.
Now my question is, how do you connect 3rd party applications like for example business connectors, kofax topcall (a fax solution), archiving solutions from imtf or external job schedulers like $universe to that system.
They either connect to a gateway as registered server program or they act as rfc client connecting to the SAP system with user and password. Now i was explaining the concept of message server logon groups to everybody. The result in most cases is a confused smile.
I am afraid we end up configuring those tools to one single application server, which renders it a single point of failure.
Does anybody have a similar environment? Remember we have only a central services instanz without gateway and workprocesses. How did you solve this problem then?
