This tab page displays the configuration of a distributed TREX system. You can only display data here. You configure a distributed TREX system using the TREX admin tool (standalone).

For more information about setting up and configuring a distributed TREX system, see Distributed TREX Systems (Multiple Host Installation)Setting Up a Distributed System.

RFC Monitoring

Shows whether or not all of the SAP system application servers have a connection to the TREX system.

If there are errors here, they can have the following causes:

The application server is communicating through an Gateway that has not been started.

The parameters of the RFC destination do not match the TREX configuration.

No TREX RFC server has registered with the Gateway.


The window shows only whether the connection from within the SAP system works. It does not display whether the connection works from within the TREX system.

The TREX admin tool (standalone) displays the complete status of the RFC connection and allows you to configure the RFC connection and correct the error.
