Part 3 – Enable Transport System on Netweaver 7.01 Trial
In order to create a more realistic development environment, along with other good reasons, it is a good idea to enable the transport management system (TMS) in netweaver 7.01 trial. By default the TMS does not work in this version (or at least it didn’t work in mine), but it doesn’t take much to get it up and running, if you know how to do it…
I followed a very useful blog by Manfred Lutz called ABAP Trial Version for Newbies: Part 8 ‘ Exporting development objects from SP8 ‘ which along with the comments and other forum posts, helped me to get the TMS working.
I suggest you follow ABAP Trial Version for Newbies: Part 8 ‘ Exporting development objects from SP8 ‘ first to see if his approach works – If so, you’re in luck. If not, I’ll help you out… My problem was that I got a TP_CANNOT_CONNECT_SYSTEM error when tryin got distribute the settings.
If you have a closer look, there is an ABAP RFC connection called TMSADM@NSP.DOMAIN_NSP (Transaction SM59). When you look at the settings, it refers to a host called ‘PWDF3101’ – This is incorrect but we cannot change it here because the RFC is locked for editing. This is a system generated RFC. Here’s how to fix it:
You need to make sure that your host file is configured correctly. Go to C:WindowsSystem32driversetchosts and open it with notepad. Either make sure that it exists, or add an entry to map your computer name to the correct IP address:
Note that K5ERP-SERVER should be replaced by your computer name. Save this and restart the computer.
After restarting and firing up the SAP server using MMC console, go to transaction STMS and click on the “Overview->Systems” menu. Highlight the NSP line and go to the “SAP System->Change” menu. Go to the “Communication” tab and enter your computer name as the target host. Go to the “Transport Tool” tab and enter your computer name as the DBHOST. Also change the TRANSDIR to match your computer name like \k5erp-serversapmnt rans where “k5erp-server” is the computer name. When done click save and it should all now be working!
Now you can follow the rest of ABAP Trial Version for Newbies: Part 8 ‘ Exporting development objects from SP8 ‘ to find out how to save your development objects to transports and then export them from your system into another SAP system.
