TMS: split trans directory between hosts(log, tmp)


Hello folks,

we are actually facing a situation where DEV and Production System are connected via WAN. It is usually no problem except when we want to import patches. It looks like SAP is producing huge amounts of read/writes on the trans dir.

So my question: Is it possible to split trans between two hosts to improve tp performance?

I would prefer sharing bin, buffer, cofiles, data, etc, storage but keep log and tmp local.

As we are one iSeries/AS400 we could try to change profile parameter on both hosts A and B to localhost/sapmnt/trans, delete bin, buffer, cofiles, data, etc on host B and replace every folder with a symlink to hostA/sapmnt/trans/<foldername>

Has anyone already tried this or are there better ideas?

Thx for your help!
