TREX 6 Installation

Hi,

I installed TREX 6.0 SP1 on a WindowsXP machine apart from the portal server and I wonder how to start the needed HTTP-server on port 8353? The TREX-service started correctly and a trexdaemon, indexserver, queue and a preprocessor are running, but the portal can't get a connection.

Thanks

Martin

    Hi Martin,

    from wrong configuration in the portal to network settings (e.g.: do the portal server and TREX communicate through proxy or not (should be excluded from proxy)? Is there additional security software involved, etc.) there can be quite a few reasons. Hint: If you cannot ping from EP to TREX it is network settings rather than portal or TREX configuration.

    => If you do not find out, please log a support message to SAP and let somebody look at the system.

    Regards, Karsten

      Hi Karsten,

      i can pass a ping on the server. There is no proxy or firewall between the portal and the trex-server. After the error-free installation of trex there is no http-server on port 8353 running. I want to create a new index on the portal and I have to configure a Default-HTTP-Server. Which process starts the http-server? The port 8353 on the Trex-machine is just not in use.

      Thanks

      Martin

    Hi,

    Did you follow the installation guide for TREX Installation?

    Did the perform the post installation tasks as described in the installation guide?

    I am sure your problems would be solved once you follow the instructions in the installation guide. Make sure you perform all the post installation tasks listed in the Installation Guide.

      The red error button is due to the fact that you can only run one website at a time in XP Pro. Close the default website and then you can start the TREX website
