TMS issues after system copy


Hi Guru's

Just completed a homogeneous client copy (SAP ERP 6.0/Oracle from SUN Microsystems to IBM AIX 6.1 which was a success.

I'm yet to overcome two challenges

1) I've configured TMS & it is working fine. Unfortunately I'm unable to list old transports in the import queue though I have copied old transports (cofiles, data, sapnames) to the shared transport directory /usr/sap/trans. I did post system copy activities including SE06 & selecting Database Copy or Database Migration

2) I cannot do imports on the command line. tp commands are not working. See error below

QAS:qasadm 4> tp showbuffer QAS

This is tp version 372.04.08 (release 700, unicode enabled)

E-TPSETTINGS could not be opened.


ERROR: System : Parameter SAPEVTPATH not set. Batch jobs cannot be started.

Error in TPSETTINGS: transdir not set.

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 transportprofil (param missing, unknown,...)

QAS:qasadm 5>
