Mounting A Common Transport Directory in SAP Transport Config


Hi Gurus,

I'm newbi to Transport in the SAP. As per the documentation available, We have opted to QA as Domain Controller. For Initial Configuration, first I have started the NFS services on each of the Server. Also, I have make entries at /etc/hosts file of each server for the IP of the rest of the systems and has made the following entry to the /etc/exports file of the Domain Controller :

/usr/sap/trans .,insecure,no_root_squash,sync

/usr/sap/trans .,insecure,no_root_squash,sync)

Then at each of the machines EXCEPT Domain Controller :

#] exportfs ┬ľa

#] mount < ip of Domain controller > :/usr/sap/trans /usr/sap/trans

As I understand, through this mount command I am making /usr/sap/trans available to DEV and Prod System 'cause, my transport directory is common across all the three system and I don't need to give this command at the Domain Controller..

- as Domain Controller's own /usr/sap/trans is obviously available to itself.

Pl. correct me if I'm wrong in this.

Beside this, on Linux the command ' chkconfig --list nfs' should have output :

nfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

But, on my Domain Controller, this command has different output :

nfs 0:off:1:off: 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:on 6:off

i.e. 3 and 4 remains off , whereas it must be in 'on' state.

So, how to solve this error at the OS Level.. ?

As I am getting ' TMS Configuration inconsistent' Error Message ..I want to make sure that my initial configuration at the OS level is correct.

Although I have include the DEV and PROD in the Domain Controller,

the problem is my Import Queue ( after releasing the request ) remains empty.

Useful answers will ALWAYS be rewarded without failure.

Many Thanks in Advance,
