Procedure documentation Changing Parameters for the Transport Control Program  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


To change the automatically generated profile parameters for the transport control program:

  1. Log onto the SAP System functioning as the transport domain controller.
  2. Call Transaction STMS.
  3. Choose Overview ® Systems. The system overview appears.
  4. Position the cursor on the SAP System you want to change.
  5. Choose SAP System ® Change. The screen Change TMS Configuration: System <System name> appears.
  6. Choose the tab Transport tool.
  7. First, all the global parameters are displayed and then all the local parameters.


    The global parameters are identical for all SAP Systems in the domain.

    To change a global parameter to a local parameter, you must delete the global parameter and enter the new local parameter.

    The operating system is only displayed if values exist for this field.

  8. Save your entries and distribute the changed configuration.


If you enter a parameter unknown to the transport control program, or a value that is not permitted, the transport control program ignores this entry in the transport profile.

To ensure that you have entered the correct parameters and values, compare your entries with the settings actually used by the transport control program. After you have stored and distributed the configuration, display all the parameters that the transport control program uses for a specific SAP System (see: Displaying Parameters for the Transport Control Program).

For information on individual parameters of the transport control program, see Transport Profile.
