SAP Transport route in Client specific transport

Hi expert,

I am defining client specific transport route ( CTC =1 )

DEV ( 100,200,300 )--


>QAS ( 100,200,300 )----->PRD ( 100,200,300).

Now we want to transport request from client 100 to QAS 100 same with other clients.

We have defined transport layer for each client . But want to do Std. transport layer 'SAP'?

Do we need to set transport layer 'SAP' as client specific?

I tried without client specific i.e all other transport routes are client specific except transport route 'SAP'.

But while activating I got error.

Diagnosis

The transport routes of the SAP system SEQ are maintained with and without clients. The transport routes of connected SAP systems all need to be defined in the same way

with source and target clients

without a client specification.

Procedure

Maintain the transport routes either with or without client.

Another query regarding same scenario .

Should we have multiple clients in production system?

Regards,

Arpit.

    The error you are getting is correct then. Transport routes are activated either with all being client specific or nothing, you cannot have some and not others. If you want SAP standard objects to go to a system without specifying a client you can create a special target group for this.

    Should we have multiple clients in production system?

    This would depend on your business requirements. For example, some companies prefer to have seperate clients for HR and FI, some rather have two seperate PRD systems for each etc

    • So from where should I setup std. transport route 'SAP'

      I've never worked with so many clients before but I would say you need a SAP standard transport layer for each client in an extended transport environment.

      Also, clients in DEV, TST and PRD that are on the same transport route generally use the same client. This way it's a lot more simple to distinguish their usage in each system eg client 200 for HR in DEV, client 200 for HR in TST etc ...just a suggestion.

      You should really consult with SAP on your business requirements and what you want to achieve before setting up such a complex transport environment.
