Can I manually import a transport (SPDD) in my shadow instance during the A

I'm in the process of upgrading our 4.6c QA clustered environment to ECC 6.0 along with a hardware migration (64bit win 2003 and SQL2005) I've sucesfully upgraded our SBX and DEV environment (non-custered) succesfully.

While doing the QA prepare phase, I selected that I did not have a single transport to include because the STSM of my QA environment was pointing to my old 4.6c DEV environment and didn't think I could copy a transport created in the new ECC environment to a 4.6c system.

So I am now at the ACT_700 phase where I must do SPDD. Is there a way that I can use the tranport the development team has created in order to make th SPDD modifications or must they now be done manually again by the DEV team? I would rather not have to have them redo it again.

Can anyone help?

    It is not possible to import transport request into shadow instance in this phase. From my point of view you have to redo SPDD manually again. Please also refer to upgrade guide regarding using of SPDD request for subsequent upgrades (also note 610311 might be helpful)

    Hi,

    This is not possible now to include this transport request, you have to do SPDD manually.

    Thanks

      This is what I thought but not really the answer I was looking for will follow your suggestion.

      For the next system which is PRD, can i just copy the transport files from the new DEV (ECC6.0) to the old DEV server (4.6c) which is the SAPTRANSHOST currently and include it in the upgrade?

      I have not moved the SAPTRANSHOST to the new server since I still have environments (PRD) running on 4.6c and I must apply support packs before I start the upgrade to ECC 6.0

    If someone read this "unanswered thread" (as I did), maybe you should read :
