Starting and Stopping Individual TREX ServersLocate this document in the navigation structure

Context

You can start individual TREX servers for test purposes and for troubleshooting. You can then track the program output on the screen.

Procedure

  • Starting the TREX Server
    1. Stop TREX (see Stopping TREX).

    2. Open a separate prompt for each TREX server.

    3. Go to the TREX directory and start the TREX server.

    TREX Server

    Command

    Index Server

    TREXIndexServer.exe

    Name Server

    TREXNameServer.exe

    Preprocessor

    TREXPreprocessor.exe

    Queue Server

    TREXQueueServer.exe

    Only relevant for an RFC connection: RFC server

    TREXRfcServer.exe -r

    Caution

    In the properties of the prompt, deactivate the QuickEdit Mode option.

    Leave the prompt open. If you want, you can minimize the window so that it is shown as a pushbutton in the Windows task bar.

  • Stopping the TREX Server
    1. Display the window in which you started the TREX server.

    2. Use CTRL + c or close the window.

    Certain processing steps, for example, writing an index, cannot be interrupted. Such steps are completed before the TREX servers are stopped. This process can take a while to complete.

    With large indexes, it can take up to a few hours to stop the TREX servers if lots of documents are currently being indexed.

    Caution

    Do not use the Task Manager to stop the TREX servers. Otherwise, data can be lost. Affected indexes can be irreparably damaged.
