  • Dan, your question is not very clear. What do you mean, connect to the backend to import transports? Do you mean "How do I logon?" Or do you mean "How do I run STMS?" And what is "SAP-Prees."? It would be helpful if you describe in more detail what you are trying to do.

    If the transport file you received came as a SAR file, i.e. "SAPKxxxxxx.SAR," then first you will need to unpack it with the SAPCAR tool, which you can download from the Support Portal if you don't already have a copy (but, most likely you do -- you can find it among your kernel executables).

    Once it's unpacked, it will usually be two files, "Kxxxxxx.XXX" and "Rxxxxxx.XXX" (the .XXX extension will be something, like SAP or L4H or whatever the SID was of the system that originally exported the files). Copy the "K" file to /usr/sap/trans/cofiles and the "R" file to /usr/sap/trans/data on the system that is your transport host (or transport domain controller -- usually your DEV system, but perhaps it's your only system).

    After you've done that, logon to the ABAP system and go into transaction STMS. Select Overview... Imports, then drill into the system you mean to import to. You should be looking at the import queue for the system, and it's probably blank, or perhaps shows already imported requests. Select Extras... Other Requests... Add. In the field for "Transp. Request" enter the original filename before you unpacked, minus the extension, i.e. XXXKxxxxxx. In other words, if the original file was L4HK901011.SAR, it would have unpacked to K901011.L4H and R901011.L4H, and the transport request number you will enter is L4HK901011. Click the green checkmark, and it should appear in the import queue, ready for import. Select it, and click Request... Import.

    This is very basic stuff, Basis 101, and is covered in depth in the online help documentation.
