TREX 7.1 Database and OS Requirements - Docs unclear

Former Member

Hello all,

We are installing TREX 7.1 Single Host, and I'm having trouble confirming the databases required.

We have servers capable of supporting Windows 2008 R2, and SQL Server 2008.

I see that Windows 2008 R2 is supported as of build 47, but the install guides show that MaxDB is required as the DB.

That said, the base 7.0 install of TREX is available for SQL Server 2008 in the install download page for Netweaver

SAP EHP1 FOR SAP NETWEAVER 7.0=>Installation=>Windows=>Microsoft SQL Server

Can we install the 7.1 architecture solely in SQL Server 2008, or is a MaxDB installation required?

I was confusing 2 documents. I had open the Enterprise Search install guide, and the TREX search guide. The older Ent. Search guide is outdated, and shows that MaxDB is required.

TREX is file system on the OS, and requires no specific DB.
