Hi,

we would like to install XI with 3 systems (DEV, QA, PROD) and transport the java components (e.g. namespace) using file system or using change management system (CMS).

What are the differences between this possibilities?

Thanks,

Lutz

    One is manually moving the data across (FTP) and the CMS has a full audit trail and is relatively automatic!

    Hi

    Transportation is of two types. a) File system Transport or b) CMS. If you want to use CMS then basis team should have install CMS.

    Check this document for transportations using CMS and File transport:

    you can use CMS or file system transport, depending on how your system is configured

    if your idoc scenario is from DEV1 to XID to DEV2 in the dev landscape

    and in the quas landscape is QAS1 XIQ to QAS2 then the transport target for DEV1 is QAS1 and the transport target for DEV2 is QAS2.

    that means the transport target is the corresponding business system under a different landscape, (dev or qas or prod)

    CMS is NW tool for transporting developments
