      Hi.

      I have a similar problem, Im in upgrade from ECC 5 non unicode to ECC 6 unicode, but if I try

      srcrd1sa005:qasadm 150> tp unlocksys QAS pf=/usr/sap/trans/bin/TP_DOMAIN_QAS.PFL

      initial value of NLS_LANG: 'AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8DEC'

      This is tp version 372.05.88 (release 700)

      Warning: Parameter DBLIBPATH is no longer used.

      Warning: Parameter DBSWPATH is no longer used.

      tp finished with return code: 0

      meaning:

      Everything OK

      Its said that is ok, but system still lock, and if I try

      srcrd1sa005:qasadm 151> tp unlocksys QAS

      initial value of NLS_LANG: 'AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8DEC'

      This is tp version 372.05.88 (release 700)

      E-TPSETTINGS could not be opened.

      EXIT

      Error in TPSETTINGS: transdir not set.

      tp returncode summary:

      TOOLS: Highest return code of single steps was: 0

      ERRORS: Highest tp internal error was: 0208

      tp finished with return code: 208

      meaning:

      error in transportpro

      they give me even more problems, could you know hot to set up a system environment variable to set this profile,in place of write every time.

      Thanks and regards!!

    Hi Amandeep Singh Kahlon,

    The SAPEVTPATH parameter must point directly to the sapevt executable.

    Add the lines in the following file:

    /usr/sap/trans/bin/TPPARAM: 

    #import by event parameters                                            
    <SID>/impdp_by_event      = yes                                        
    <SID>/sapevtpath          = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/exe/run/sapevt   

    Adapt the follwing lines to the proper dir. and filename:

    <SID>/startsap = <path and name of startsap-file> r3    

    Carefully follow these instructions and edit the: /usr/sap/trans/bin/TPPARAM

    You will need to restart the system for SAPEVT to be recognised

    with which command did you start tp? Can you please post your command, thx? It will help to debug the error in case the above changes does not help.

    Best Regards,

    Hannes Kuehnemund
