Intercompany Stock Transfer Order - vendor Returns - External WMS in receiving plant

We are using Intercompany stock transport orders ( NB purchase order type creating a delivery in the supplying plant and then an IC invoice, receipt via 101 in the receiving plant ).

For returns we use vendor returns functionality. A new PO item is entered with the flag 'Returns Item' checked. This generates a 161 movement on the receiving plant done via MIGO, and then the supplying plant processes in SD a returns delivery of type NCR.

All this works as expected.

Now one of our distribution centers ( the receiving plant ) will be using an external WMS system. We have therefore started to configure the system: Creating a WMS code, assigning it to the storage location, declaring the WMS as External, setting up the interface.

Wth this changed setup, the movement type 161 cannot be used anymore. When trying to post a 161 movement, the error "Posting with reference to pur. order only possible for integrated whse".

However the shipping data in the stock transport order is already filled with the returns delivery for the supplying plant, therefore I cannot use the vendor return with an outbound delivery in this case.

MBRL cannot be used, as MBRL creates deliverys with movement type 122. Or we want to return and receive a credit from the supplying plant, and not a replacement.

What is the standard SAP solution for this scenario?
