Procedure documentation Checking Transport Groups 

Prerequisites

When the transport groups are checked, the system tests whether all SAP Systems within a transport group have the same transport directory. It also checks if SAP Systems in different transport groups access different transport directories.

Procedure

To check the transport groups only:

  1. Call Transaction STMS.
  2. Choose This graphic is explained in the accompanying text. The system overview appears.
  1. Choose Goto
® Transport groups. The screen Display TMS Configuration: Transport Groups.
  • Choose Configuration Check transport groups.
  • To check the transport directories and the transport groups:

    1. Check the transport directories of all SAP Systems in the transport domain (see
    Checking the Transport Directory).
  • Choose Goto
  • ® Transport groups.

    The check involves creating test files for all SAP Systems in the transport domain. A check is then made on all systems to see which of these test files are readable. The result is compared with the configuration of the transport domain.

    Caution

    If the check for the transport groups shows that the systems are incorrectly assigned to the groups, you must adapt the TMS configuration (see

    Changing the Configuration of an SAP System). Then repeat this check.

    Remember that incorrectly configured transport groups can damage import queues and transport logs. You must check the consistency of the transport groups after you include new systems in the transport domain.

    Result

    The test result is output in the form of a matrix. The icons used mean the following:
