Enable ABAP Test-Drive NSP 7.01 to Release Transport Requests


With the default configuration of the NSP 7.01 test drive of the Web Application Server ABAP, it is not possible to release transport requests. This is due to a wrong system number in the TMS Configuration for system NSP. In this blog, I’m giving a quick walk-through to show you how to repair the transport system so that you can release transport requests.

The Walk-trough

  1. Check if you’re affected
    (In transaction SE10, check if upon releasing a transport request, you get error message TK(094):”Test call of transport control program (tp) ended with return code &3”.
  2. Call transaction STMS
  3. Menu Overview – Systems
  4. Double-click on system NSP
  5. Menu Configuration – Display <-> Change
  6. Tab “Communication”
  7. Change “System No.” to “02”.
  8. Save

    (If an error occurs here, they may be a problem with your \sapmnt share. You need to release the SAP directory of your installation – the one with subdirectories NSP, sapmmc, and trans – as share \sapmnt and make sure authorizations are set so that the system can access it.)
  9. Back to System Overview
  10. Menu Extras – Generate RFC Destinations
  11. SAP System – Check – Connection Test
  12. SAP System – Check – Transport Directory
  13. SAP System – Check – Transport Tool


Now you should be able to release transport requests in transaction SE10. Enjoy!

  • On monday I’ll put a link at the NSP-page of our company wiki to your blog entry. I think a lot of people who use NSP for private training will need that information, too.
