Applying Support Packages Locally

I am looking for help in applying support packages locally on my QAS box. I have modified DIR_EPS and DIR_EPS_ROOT from RZ10 on the QAS box as well as I inserted an entry in the hosts file and still it's not pulling the support packages from the QAS box. I just don't want QAS to be pulling the SPAMS from another box so this process could be a little bit faster because I have about 80 SPAMS to apply. Is ther anything that I am missing.

I am getting error "Could not create file list".

Thanks and regards

    Hi Reynold,

    I dont understand what you mean by locally !! Usually we start applying SPs in DEV , QA then to Production.Most the cased /usr/sap/trans is mounted in all the system so you dont need to uncar the Support pack files each time.If you dont have a common usr/sap/trans then you have to copy the files in each time , u can copy the files to /usr/sap/trans and uncar it , it will automatically placed in ../EPS/in directory .. Then go to SPAM and upload it . ( SPAM --> support package --> Load Package --> From application server ) . It si always a good practice to update kernel and SPAM/SAINT before starting SPs
