tp command does not work when started with source under redhat


Good aftenoon,

I add to add 146 transport requests after a system refresh.

I wanted to add these TRs with the command "tp addbuffer".

My sidadm user is running with csh.

When I run the following command, as user sidadm, it works.

tp addtobuffer DEVK926727 SID pf=/usr/sap/trans/bin/TP_DOMAIN_XXX.PFL

If I copy this command in a file (eg tp.cmd), and run run source tp.cmd, there is the following error.


This is tp version 380.69.67 (release 745)
Error in /usr/sap/trans/bin/TP_DOMAIN_SID.PFL

: transdir not set.

could not be opened.

tp returncode summary:

TOOLS: Highest return code of single steps was: 0
ERRORS: Highest tp internal error was: 0208
tp finished with return code: 208
error in transport profile (parameter missing or unknown)


1. Would you know why I have this change of behavior, if I use source?

2. How do you proceed when you need to add more than one hundred TRs in a buffer?
