Hi everyone

I am trying to configure TPPARAM file...TPPARAM file in my computer

is named as tpparam_instDEV

contents in my TPPARAM file :



DEV/DBHOST =development






i tried changing the transdir= path where my tp file is located

and when i try testing the TP connection.

C:\ tp connect dev ( i get an error )


Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]

(C) Copyright 1985-2000 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\devadm>tp connect dev

This is tp version 340.15.06 (release 640, unicode enabled)

E-TPSETTINGS could not be opened.


ERROR: System : Parameter SAPEVTPATH not set. Batch jobs cannot be started.

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


error in transportprofil (param missing, unknown,...)

C:\Documents and Settings\devadm>

    configuring tp with tpparam is quite old fashioned and imo not supported any more...correct me if i'm wrong...use transaction STMS instead and your parameter file will be configured accordingly...

    > cd \usr\sap\trans\bin

    > tp connect <SID> <b>pf=TP_DOMAIN_<SID of transport domain system>.PFL</b>

    • a) the tp environment is not configured through TPPARAM anymore but through transaction this would be the right way to configure your tp

      b) seems ok...return code is 0000, which means that a connect is possible and everything's OK!

      c) you should patch your tp executable since yours has a 10/2004 date...a newer version can be donwloaded from sapnet...
