Unable to use global transport directory


I have a 3 system SAP landscape consisting of DEV, QAS, PRD. I configured TMS and put all three system into the same transport group. DEV and QAS can shared the same transport directory residing in DEV. However I am unable to get PRD to use the global transport directory. PRD is always using its transport directory. How can I allow PRD to use the global transport directory?

    what about the corresponding profile parameter DIR_TRANS? where does it point?

    the transport directory on DEV is shared? also for PRD?

      I found out what is the problem. DIR_TRANS was pointing to the local \usr\sap\trans directory because SAPTRANSHOST parameter was not set properly. After pointing SAPTRANSHOST to the DEV server in the PRD hostfile, DIR_TRANS shows the correct path leading to DEV \usr\saptrans.

      It is not necessary to set DIR_TRANS manually unless we want to use another transport directory different from the transport group.
