Create trasport reqeusts directly in quality system

Hello All,

We have a three system landscape TMS configuration (DEVL-QUAL-PROD) and QUAL is defined as consolidated system.

Because of lot of developers doing/testing changes to configuration on DEVL, we made some changes directly in QUAL intend to import into PROD system. Opened QUAL system just for this change.("Automatic recording of Changes" and "Changes to repository and cross-client customizing allowed" in QAUL) Note: It is not a good practice to open QUAL system but in this scenario we can't take risk of taking untested configuration from DEVL system.

- When creating transport request, PROD is not showing up in the target system as QUAL is the consolidated system.

- Created a transport request without target system thinking it would create local transport with CO and data file. After releasing the transport request system is not creating a CO and files. After doing research, looks like need to create a virtual system so that QUAL system would create co and data files. Once co and data files are created, I could add to PROD import queue manually.

Could you please help... is creating virtual system is the only solution in this scenario. if i have to create a virtual system, all i have to do is STMS->SAP SYSTME->Create Virtual system. As PROD Is the domain controller, should i leave "PROD" as the communication system?

Thanks a lot in advance

    you can simply create a Transport Request of type Transport of Copies in SE01 transaction in QA system and that can be assigned with transport target as Dev/Prod. So, your requirement will be solved without doing any modification in existing Transport paths.

    Also, when you will release Transport of copies, it will create data+cofiles.

    Hope it helps.

    best regards

    Hi Sid,

    ==>Created a transport request without target system thinking it would create local transport with CO and data file. After releasing the transport request system is not creating a CO and files.

    Here,you have created a local transport since target system not mentioned.

    Local transport request will not create cofiles and datafiles.It means there is no target defined for that transport request. In such case, system assume that the changes made and captured in that TR are local (within the system) and need not to be moved in subsequent systems of transport landscape.

    So to create cofiles and datafiles for that particular request,we need to create transport of copies.

    Go to  SE10, create a new request of type "transport of copies":

    give it a description and specify the target system: in your case QUAL system

    Then, include objects from the old requests using the following button:

    (4th button, next to the trash can - "include objects")

    Finally, specify the old request "number" on the following prompt (where it says "request" on the following image):

    Then new request will get created  with the contents of old request.And it will create cofiles and datafiles at OS level .Then you can manually copy the cofiles and datafiles to system you need too import .

    Then Add into  queue from that system..

    Thanks,

    Needu

    hi,

    what changes are you doing which you can't transport from Dev-qa and prd?

    Is there option to give QUAL as target ?

    i Mean is it possible to give source system as target. Once you create transport you can then manually transfer data and co file.

    • Hi Sid,

      It is not a good practice to open QUAL system but in this scenario we can't take risk of taking untested configuration from DEVL system.

      - When creating transport request, PROD is not showing up in the target system as QUAL is the consolidated system.

      1) What is the change you performed in Qual ? Are those abap programs ?

         If its only ABAP programs, you can simply download from QUAL and upload the same into DEV.

         Create new TR in DEV for those changes and follow TR route from DEV->QAS->PRD

      2) As QUAL is part of consolidation route , any TR created will not generate cofiles and datafiles.

         You may need to break the TMS configuration. Createa virtual system in QUAL. Then create 2 system TMS configuration in QUAL .

         Create transport of copies for required TRs and then release them. This will generate cofiles and datafiles for your TRs which can be manually imported into PRD.

      Hope this helps.
