Setting Up STMS on Windows 2003 where should DIR_TRANS point to

Hello Gurus,

I am in the process of configuring Transport Routes for our SAP Systems.

SCENERIO:

We have 2 system landscape for BI,ECC,CRM and

we have a single SOLMAN system

SOLMAN is Domain Controller DOMAIN_SS1

I setup all transport routes for all systems.

Both ECC system are in one transport group GROUP_ECC

and same for BI and CRM systems. GROUP_BI, GROUP_CRM

Now when I try to import tranport into Let's say from ECC system SE1 into SE2 my SE2 can't see any transports.

Now in my Instance profiles

SE1 has DIR_TRANS pointing to it's own /usr/sap/trans

SE2 is pointing to it's own.

My question what's the correct way of setting the DIR_TRANS in these system and how it's related to 'transdir' in profile file of tp

.

Please help me fix this issue.

Should I set DIR_TRANS separate for each group or please suggest what is correct way to do it.

Regards,

M D

    To "see" the transports the system must share a common directory, on Unix mostly NFS is used. So you have to make one host an NFS server and mount the directory on the other host.

    This is described in the installation guides as well.

    As suggested by Markus make a common /usr/sap/trans for ECC. i.e. in your case make common /usr/sap/trans directory which will be shared by SE1 and SE2 and further if production comes then SE3 as well share this /usr/sap/trans directory.

    The parameter DIR_TRANS will point to same /usr/sap/trans for ECC landscape.

    You may need to take help from OS team to mount this /usr/sap/trans in such a way that all ECC systems can access this directory.

    Thanks..

    For all the systems that are in one Group you shuld have a single Transport directory so your DIR_TRANS should be pointing to that shared transport directory. However is you do not want to have a single transport directory, you can set up your TMS such that each system in a domain will have its Own transport Group (although it belongs to the same Transport domain). This way you will be able to configure TMS with DIR_TRANS pointing to the local transport directory and still transport. However you first have to perform an adjustment so that transport files are copied from the one system to the other at os level (if you just click on the adjust icon it copies automatically). What i am not sure about is if you can use this method with one transport domain for your three landscapes. Your might need to have 3 diferent Domains.

    Hello Experts,

    Thanks for your helpful replies.

    My installation is a local installation on Win 2003 server.

    My Domain Controller is on another host whish is a SOLMAN system. DOMAIN_SOLMAN

    My ECC systems are part of theat domain but both ECC systems are part of one group GROUP_ECC so that they share one transport directory.

    Now there are two shares on SE1 sapmnt and saploc

    What's the significance of that?

    My OS team mapped the sapmnt share on SE1 in my SE2 system as T:\trans

    When I loginto my SE2 system I can access the T:\trans

    But when Now when I setup DIR_TRANS in profile of my SE2 system as T:\trans it's complaining that this directory does not exist?

    I can't understand this?

    Does this has anything to do with access rights <sid>adm, SAPService<SID> users account and their association with groups:

    SAP_LocalAdmin,

    SAP_<SID>_LocalAdmin

    SAP_<SID>_GlobalAdmin

    Can you point me to some documentation which could explain setting up STMS for systems with local installation.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    M D

    Hello All,

    I am now able to set up the transport routes and I can see the transport in traget system.

    In short DIR_TRANS as suggested by all of you should point to DEV system in the groups.

    in my case in GROUP_ECC points to DEV ECC and similar for all other groups in the domain.

    Thanks all for your help.
