Alternate transport directory during Upgrade

Hello Everyone,

We have started Prepare Phase on Production after completion of Development, here Problem we are getting now is Transport directory (DIR_TRANS=/usr/sap/trans) of production machine is a Symbolic Link which physically exist on Development system.

If we use the same directory then probably Upgrade is going to run for a very long time or may be forever as physical directory is on a different machine altogether.

Could any one please guide if we can use a local alternate DIR_TRANS for production upgrade.

Regards,

Shafi

    Hi Shafi,

    you can change the trans dir - that is a bit effort and makes transportation pretty complicated.

    If you go with this remotely, only one phase during Prepare takes 2-3h longer than with the physical directory. Then the stuff is copied and works locally from the put directory => no performance difference ...

    => I would leave it as it is ...
