how to delete trans dir

Note 41732 - Deletion of data in transport directory

this is the note that explain the how to.

But, i saw that is also the way to adjust the tpparam profile:

###########################

The minimum age of files in the transport directory that can be deleted can be set in the transport profile. The transport profile is the file 'TPPARAM' in the subdirectory 'bin' in the transport directory. The following parameters can be set (all durations are in days):

datalifetime is the minimum lifetime of the files in data

loglifetime is the minimum lifetime of the files in log

olddatalifetime is the minimum lifetime of the files in olddata

cofilelifetime is the minimum lifetime of the files in cofiles

Example:

datalifetime=30

loglifetime=60

olddatalifetime=60

cofilelifetime=30

These parameters must not be listed here system-specifically, since with the subsequent tp calls no SAP system can be entered either.

Instead you always call with the parameter 'ALL'.

##################################

how can i modify the parameter (vi editor)?

or there is a command?

and which are the suggested values?

      Hi,

      To my knowledge TPPARAM will be updated if you change or configure in STMS.

      because you dont want to delete all the old file you cannot use tp clearoldall you can use this those parameters to set this.

    Hi

    why don't you try from os level.Most of the space will be occupied by Data files if you think they are no more needed in future you can manually delete them from /usr/sap/trans/data( you can find the command transport directry from STMS).If your system is runnig on widow environment you can archive (zip) them to any other directry.... so that you can replace them in futher if reqire... hope this will help you?

    Regards...
