Manually transporting cofile and data files

I'm trying to send a transport from one system to other system where the destination system is not part of the transportable path. Therefore, I have to manually copy over the cofiles and data files and do a TP ADDTOBUFFER. However, there is already a transport with the same name in the destination system, so it adds the old transport to the buffer instead of the one that I copied over. If a transport with the same name does not already exist, then everything works fine. Is there a way around this issue? I tried renaming the cofiles and data files, but that throws an error when importing the TP.

thank you

    Your two systems apparently have the same name and are picking from the same number ranges for transports. You could change the system name but that's pretty radical solution. Change the number ranges in one or both systems and you won't have this problem again.

    Do this.

    Go to SA38

    Enter report RSWBO301.

    This program will allow you to set different number range intervals for your two systems so they never produce the same transport name/number.

    Here's what I did.

    I had two systems called HAL that created transports called HALK9****. I went into this report and looked for a number range of the size 99999 in one of them. It offered me a range of HALK9A0003 to HALK9A255T. I saved the number range and now it creates transpors called HALK9A***. Since my other HAL system has a transport number range of HALK900001 to HALK999999 they will never create the same transport number again.

    hth.

    Why don't you just create a new "transport of copys" and release it. You get a new number and new data- and cofile...

    Transport of copy, because this will not be automatically send to the buffer of the next system in the transport route

    Hi

    Ideally STMS is configured such that every Transport isgenerated uniquely with a unique number.

    There is a possibility that you are making changes in an already existing transport. Possibly , deleting the entry from the buffer of the destination system and then importing the same in the destination would help.Please check the buffer of the transport system.

    Can you please let us knw the transport number you are trying to send.

    Regards

    Chen

    Hi Tony,

    Please try by deleting old transport from the destination system & then add your newly created transport. Hope this solves your problem.

    Thanks,
