ChaRM or Change Request Management is one of the most demanding interesting features from the past 4-5 years and drastically changed or improved in the new version of Solution Manager 7.1
In this article we will see how we can create a transport path/route for a single managed system which can be used for ChaRM(Change Request Management) for demo or Proof Of Concept purposes.
Please Note: SAP recommends to have Production client on a separate server and not to maintain all the clients on the same server. This is just for PoC and testing ChaRM purposes only.
We have a managed system ERP system with 3 clients ( Development 500-> Quality 800 – > Production 810) connection to our Solution Manager Production environment.
Step 1 : Logon to ERP or managed system and enter transaction STMS. Also, make sure you get the message(You are logged onto the domain controller)
Step 2: Now click on the transport routes option and enter change mode.
Step 3: Now drag and drop the system and click on the SAP menu to choose Transport Route-> Create Add Transport Route
Step 4: In the pop-up click on Consolidation and provide the target system or client. This will be the QA client
Make sure you have selected the transport layer as SAP. Press enter
Step 5: Now create a Z custom transport layer by choosing the below option.
Step 6: Provide a name and maintain description as shown below.
Step 7: Please maintain the Quality client for Z Transport layer as Target client which we have created above.
Step 8: Now we need to create a delivery route between our Quality and Production client. Again perform step 3 to create a new transport path/route. Maintain Quality as source client and Production client as target but please note choose option DELIVERY.
Step 9: Now the 3 clients of the single managed system will look as shown below with the 3 paths we have configured.
Step 10: This is the most important step double click the system box. Now choose the Z Transport layer and provide the Development client and maintain entries as shown below.
Yes now we are ready to activate ChaRM(Change Request Management) in SAP Solution Manager 7.1.
Please linking managed system and Solution Manager both domain controllers is no longer required in Solution Manager 7.1 version onwards. We will cover next steps later.
