Procedure documentation Configuring the Backup Domain Controller  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


In your transport domain, the SAP System that is configured as the domain controller is of special significance. If this SAP System fails, you cannot make changes to the TMS configuration during this time. Therefore if your transport domain contains more than three SAP Systems, we recommend configuring a backup domain controller. If your domain controller fails, the backup controller can assume the function of the domain controller.


The SAP System that you want to use as the backup controller must have the same release version as the domain controller. Otherwise, configuration information may be lost when changing the transport domain controller.


To configure a backup domain controller:

  1. Log onto the SAP System functioning as the transport domain controller.
  2. Enter Transaction STMS.
  3. Choose Overview ® Systems. The system overview appears.
  4. Position the cursor on the domain controller.
  5. Choose SAP System ® Change. The brings you to the screen Change TMS Configuration: System <SID>.
  6. In the field Backup, enter the SAP System you want to use as the backup controller of your transport domain.
  7. Save your entries and distribute the configuration change.
