    • Hi Kjetil,

      The reason I said that is because he said he needed to create a transport request for the jobs. I have never encountered this, but I don't think this would work when you transport it. And because you still would have to execute SWU3 on the other clients I don't see a need to transport it. I agree with you that it shouldn't be a problem to import it, but as I have never done it I couldn't be certain.

      But it would help if we knew what is in the transport.

      Regards,

      Martin

    • Hi Brajesh,

      Is this the only job which asks for a transport request? I think there is a setting done on the system which asks for transport requests for customizing or something. You do need to run SWU3 on every client and system, so I wouldn't transport the job.

      Regards,

      Martin

    the earlier problem of background job was solved by changing the output device assigned to user wf-batch .

    regarding the transport request :

    when i was trying to execute the step : "Schedule bakgrd for missed deadlines " MANUEL it was giving me an option of SAVE AND SCHEDULE . which was creating the transport request . but when i executed it automatically it worked fine without asking a request to me ... i don't know why )-: ... probablly we can specify a different interval then the standard of three minutes and which will be transported (it's just a guess) . i have executed it automatically ...

    well thanks all for u r help
