End-point business system down-time

Now that we have a number of business scenarios in production, we are running into the situation where a particular end-point business system is being taken down for maintenance, but the XI system (as well as the sending business system) is not going out of service.  The receiving business system is an R/3 system that is connected to via the IDoc adapter.

We would like to be able to take the R/3 system down and have XI somehow recognize that it is down and queue up any messages intended for the system, without generating an error.  Has anyone dealt with a similar situation?

Regards,

Chris

    Hi Chris,

    If ur business sceanrio is using the Asynchronous Communication, the message scheduling is done using the EO, EOIO queuing mechanism.

    If your receiving Sap system is down, the message will error out in XI and you can check the error messages in XI monitor and reschedule those error message when u restart your receiving SAP system.

      Prasad,

      The key is having to reschedule the messages that have errored.  I want XI to be able to know that the receiving system is down and not even try to send the messages, so that no errors are created. When XI knows the receiving system is back up, it should then start sending the messages.

      From a run-maintain support standpoint, having to manually reschedule possibly thousands of messages in XI after a planned maintenance window for the receiving system would be unacceptable.
