Backend Server Section

The backend server section defines the properties of a backend server connection that the Outbound Enabler uses when it connects to the Relay Server farm on behalf of a backend server.

There is a backend server section for each Outbound Enabler that connects to the Relay Server farm. Each Backend server section is identified by the backend_server keyword. The backend server section also assigns a backend server to a backend server farm.

The Relay Server supports the following backend servers:

  • SAP Afaria

  • Mobile Office

  • MobiLink

  • SAP Mobile Platform

  • SQL Anywhere

Property Description
description (Optional) Specifies a custom description of up to 2048 characters.

(Optional) Specifies whether to allow connections from this backend server.

  • yes

    (Default) Allows connections from this backend server.

  • no

    Disallows connections from this backend server.

farm Specifies the name of the backend server farm that this backend server belongs to.
id Specifies the name for that the backend server connection up to 2048 characters.
MAC (Optional) Specifies the MAC address of the network adapter that the Outbound Enabler uses to communicate with the Relay Server. Use the IEEE 802 MAC-48 format to specify the address. To determine the correct format for the MAC address, look in the Relay Server Outbound Enabler console or log. If the property is not specified, then the MAC address is not checked.
max_junction Sets the maximum number of active and idle junctions that are available to the Relay Server. This setting overrides the -jl option for rsoe2. The default value for this option is 1,000.
max_junction_idle_sec Controls the how long junctions can remain inactive before the Outbound Enabler discards them. The Outbound Enabler automatically replenishes the idle junction pool if its size falls below the spare junction low watermark that the -jsl option controls. The default value is 30.
token (Optional) A security token of up to 2048 characters that the Relay Server uses to authenticate the backend server connection.
verbosity Specifies the verbosity level.
