To establish whether a transport has been successful, you need to know the meaning of the return codes generated by the programs used for the transport.

Return code



Transport performed without errors


Warnings were issued. All objects were transported successfully. There were special actions for individual objects that may not have been intentional, for example, a warning is issued during the export if the request contains an object deletion.

Read the warnings.


Individual objects could not be transported successfully. You must analyze and correct the errors. Examples of import errors: Original object was not overwritten, Repaired object was not overwritten

0012 or higher

A critical error has occurred, probably not caused by the contents of the request. You must inform your system administrator.

A return code always has a detailed long text. Read this text for information on the transport error.
