Once you have included an SAP System in the transport domain, you can change the following settings on the domain controller at any time:


To change the configuration of an SAP System:

  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 where you want to change the configuration.
  5. Choose SAP System ® Change. The screen Change TMS Configuration: System <SID> appears where you can make changes.

In the field Description in the upper part of the screen, you can change the short text for the SAP System. The other parameters are distributed on three tabs.


The short descriptions of the transport domain, groups, and the SAP Systems are stored for the specific language. If you change a text, you change this text for the language in which you have logged on.

  1. Save your changes and distribute the configuration changes to all SAP Systems in the transport domain (see: Distributing the Transport Domain Configuration).


If the host name or the system number of the SAP System functioning as the domain controller changes, you have to set the new address of the domain controller on all SAP Systems in the transport domain. Avoid these manual actions by configuring a backup controller and activating it before you change the domain controller.
