Only Windows: Defining the Network DriveLocate this document in the navigation structure

Use
Note

SAP strongly recommends that you define a network drive on all TREX hosts for the central TREX data directory on the file server. Access via a network drive is much quicker than access without a drive.

The procedure below describes the required configuration steps.

Procedure

Edit the configuration file TREXDaemon.ini on all TREX hosts as follows:

TREXDaemon.ini

[mappings]

map_<network_drive_letter>=\\<file_server>\<TREX_data_directory>

Caution

Define the same network drive on all TREX hosts: Use the same network drive letter and specify the same directory.

Note

In the standard system, the system uses the user SAPSystem<SAPSID> to access the network drive.

If you want the system to use a different user for access, specify this as follows:

map_<network_drive_letter>=\\<file_server>\<TREX_data_directory>

user_<network_drive_letter>=<user_name>

password_<network_drive_letter>=<password_in_plain_text>

Result

The changes take effect when TREX is next started.

Example

You have created the directory mytrexdir on the file server myfileserver and shared it as mytrexshare. You want to connect the directory on all TREX hosts as the network drive T:.

Configuration in TREXDaemon.ini:

[mappings]

map_t=\\myfileserver\mytrexshare
