    hi scott,

    support packs are used to update the present sap system.

    stms is used make connections between the sap systems.

    i don't think it is mandatory to configure tms before applying support packs.( correct me if i am wrong).

    but the important thing is that we configure tms at the starting of the implementation and configure the TDC and then apply the support packs to all the sap systems .

    to check the consistency of the sap systems when ever we send a T request to the DEV, QAS or PRD systems.

    regards,

      Hi all,

      STMS is mandatory before applying support packages. If you have not configured STMS you are not allowed to import support packages.

      I hope you have noticed while applying support packages there are many phases like test import,DDIC activation,main port and so on.

      Only by transport request the support packages are applied in SAP. You can verify the same in Support packages log. Even if you want to check the same at OS level you can get more details in trans log. It means SP can be applied only using transport request.

      I will list out the actions while applying SP.

      2. Create cofile from datafile

      3. CMD Import

      4. Process Object list (All components listed)

      5. tp user check ok

      6. Add-on (All components listed)

      7. SPDD_SPAU_CHECK

      8. Compling SAP

      9. tp user check ok

      10. DD Import

      11. DD Activation

      12. Distribution of DD-Objects

      13. TBATG Convention of DD-Objects

      14. MOVE NAME TABS

      15. MAIN IMPORT

      16. Execution of Reports After Put.

      So If you configure STMS only it will create co and data file.

      I hope you would have clear understanding

      Regards

    To make it simple.... A SP is basically a huge transport so STMS need to be configured.
