In the XML DAS Administration you can define new archive stores and change, delete or test existing archive stores.
You have called up the XML DAS Administration from within the SAP NetWeaver Administrator (NWA) via Operations → Data and Data Bases and you have set up the storage system.

Defining Archive Stores
Enter the following information:
The following entries vary depending on the information you entered under Store Type. If you entered:
Destination: Use the drop down list of the field help to choose the appropriate archive store root.
The destination must have been created previously in the NWA, in order for it to appear in the drop down list.
Proxy Host: If applicable, enter the appropriate host if you are using a WebDAV system via a proxy.
ProxyPort:If applicable, enter the appropriate port if you are using a WebDAV system via a proxy.
These entries are optional and only apply if you are using a proxy server. However, if you enter information for one, you must enter information in the other.
Windows Root: If a server running on an operating system of the Windows syntax group belongs to your AS Java, enter the root to the storage system as it is seen from the perspective of the Windows server.
Unix Root: Enter the appropriate root.
If a server running on an operating system of the Unix syntax group belongs to your AS Java cluster, enter the root to the archive store as it is seen from the Unix server.
When defining archive stores it is very important that you choose every archive store according to the following general rules (within the same file or WebDAV system):
Figure 1: Possible and Impossible Options for Choosing an Archive Store Root
In Figure 1 you can see that the following root has been defined for archive store X: /a/b/c. Now you want to define a root for archive store Y. Based on the general three rules named above, it would not be possible to use the root /a/b/c for archive store Y, because /a/b/c is already being used by archive store X. It would also not be possible to use the archive store root /a/b/c/d, because it contains an archive store root that has already been used for another archive store. It would, however, be possible to use archive store root /a/b/z, /a/m, or /a/m/n.
The list of archive stores now contains your newly defined store. Check that the information is correct.
Changing Archive Stores
Deleting Archive Stores
Select the row of the archive store you want to delete and choose Delete.
You can only delete archive stores that have not been used yet in any XML archiving sessions.
The changes you make to archive stores affect the definition of your archive store. Nothing is actually changed or deleted in the file system or WebDAV system.
Testing Archive Stores
If you want to test the accessibility and availability of archive stores, chosse one of the following possibilities:
The status column shows whether the archive store is currently running.
