Question on sharing /usr/sap/trans with servers on different SAP Kernels

Hello Gurus,

Currently we are on Solution Manager 7.1 which is on 7.2 SAP Kernel. Our CTS domain controller is configured on the SM 7.1 server.

Our SAP servers on are all on NW 7.01 sap kernel. Is it wise to share the same /usr/sap/trans path with SM7.1 and our NW7.01 servers since they have different SAP Kernels? or does it matter?

    So, you want to use Solman as the Domain Controller for other SAP servers. Kernel shouldn't matter, but it is advisable for all systems in the landscape to be using the same kernel version/patch.

    It does not matter, you can share /usr/sap/trans.

    Hi Anthony

    Kernel is not going to make a difference. You can use different transport directories for each landscape . Say for ECC you can have /usr/sap/trans/ECC for BW you can have /usr/sap/trans/BW. It will just keep things clean and manageable for you.
