Activating Permission Changes Not enabled.


When we port the track from one DTR server to other, it created few issues in Some DCs of the track and hence we are trying to manually correct the files in DTR repository itself. For doing this i have 2 question and have given below.

1. Whether if i add or change the Files already existing in DTR manually, by changing in File system(without using NWDS), will it reflect in NWDS when i reimpoort in NWDS?

2. For manually modifying the permission set for the DC folder, i have to set the permission. for this, I went to DTR perspective and in the folder where write access is required. I added a ACL principle which will give write access to Group NWDI.Administrators. But after adding the principle, I couldn't Activate the changes as the Button "activate all changes" is disabled. if i close NWDS, the change i did just disappears. Please Let me know on how to enable this "Activate" option or what to do for activate the permissions set.

Please help me in this as this has been bugging us for long time now.

Thanks in advance.

      Hi Ervin,

      Thanks for the info. The problem is , Even after trying several option, some how Via NWDS we were not able to correct the DC problem. Days and Days were spent on it and SAP OSS finally said that the source track from where the Track is ported to new server is corrupted. we cannot do any thing to the source dtr even if it is corrupted as any mistake might create some problem and might even loose soem data. Since the Standard way of Transport is not possible, we are looking for an alternative options such as Manual Tranportation.

      Can you you please explain me why there could be a problem if we Modify in file system directly. All we

      expect is a server restart or NWDS restart if not reflecting in NWDS.
