ehp5 upgrade-Transfer posting movement types: Wrong Posting String?

Dear Experts,

We noticed a strange behaviour at a client's system after EHP5 upgrade and activation of the Logistics business functions.

The system asks for a posting sting that requires an offsetting entry for inventory posting (GBB), without any account modification. This occurs for transfer posting movement types that are currently in use at the client (301,351, 641,68C,68A) during stock transfer related transactions. We subsequently provided an account for the offsetting entry, but what we have seen after some weeks of going live is that the offsetting account is in perpetual credit and the stock account has excess debit at the GL in finance.

We have checked our valuation areas, grouping code, movement types, account determination and grouping for movement types but nothing appears out of place. What we have found is that the system posts a credit to the offsetting account for the receiving plant and a debit to the stock account for the receiving plant (regardless of posting key or rules used in OBYC). This is the only accounting entry passed. In the case of a two-step stock transfer, it does the above posting for value at goods issue and only receives quantity at goods receipt.

From our understanding and previous experience, stock transfer transactions post stock value and quantity from the issuing location to the receiving location in a one-step stock transfer, and does the same for a two step with an additional goods receipt leg.

I have checked everywhere I know to check for a possible cause for this but I still can't get a solution. I am not sure if this is because of the upgrade of the is fundamental problem with the installation.

Any help will be very much appreciated.
