Procedure

For tp, the transport directory must fulfill the following requirements (depending on the operating system):

UNIX

In a transport network, there must be a single physical transport directory that can be reached from each host with the same path.

In UNIX systems, this directory can be a soft link, pointing to the correct transport directory or mount point.

You must store the chosen path in two parameters:

The default value for the transport directory is /usr/sap/trans in UNIX.

Windows

Transport groups comprised of Windows systems, or of Windows and UNIX systems are supported.

For more information on creating a heterogeneous transport group, see Transport Control under Windows.

SAP allows you to name a central transport host on the Domain Name Server that is valid for all Windows systems.

For more information on specifying a central transport host on the domain name server, see Specifying the Central Transport Host.

Each transport group must have a single physical transport directory that can be accessed by all machines.

This directory is described by the parameters:

If you have entered a transport host on the domain name server, the directory is under \\$(SAPTRANSHOST)\sapmnt\trans by default.

Otherwise it is under \\$(SAPGLOBALHOST)\sapmnt\trans .

The transport directory is described by the following parameters:

Name of the host configured as the central transport host on the domain name server

Name of the host on which the central system is installed

Global share that points to the \usr\sap file tree on the central instance

Note

Note the different naming conventions used for the parameters transdir and DIR_TRANS:

The path entered for the parameter DIR_TRANS does not end with a "\", whereas the path entered for the parameter transdir does end with a "\":

DIR_TRANS = T:

transdir = T:\

 

Note

The DIR_TRANS profile parameter that you set and the parameter transdir in the transport profile must point to the same transport directory.

IBM eServer iSeries

In a transport network, there must be a single physical transport directory that can be reached from each host with the same path.

In iSeries systems, this directory can be a soft link, pointing to the correct transport directory or mount point.

You must store the chosen path in two parameters:

The default value for the transport directory is /usr/sap/trans in iSeries.
