Configuring Virtual SAP Systems
You may not want to install all the SAP Systems you have planned for your system landscape at the same time. However, you can use TMS to configure SAP Systems as virtual systems in the transport domain so that you can model the transport routes of your whole system landscape.
Most of the TMS display functions can be used for virtual systems.
You can also configure SAP Systems as virtual systems that do not yet have Release 3.1G. After you have upgraded the system to Release 3.1G (or higher) you can replace the virtual system with an installed SAP System.
To configure a virtual system:
The system overview appears.
The dialog box TMS: Configure Virtual System appears.
The domain controller is proposed as the communications system.
The communications system is required to act as a substitute for accessing the transport directory.
