Continue Client Import After Termination

You may encounter some unexpected errors during client import with transaction code STMS, such as not enough free space within Oracle undo and temp tablespace. Then you want to continue to import at the point of failure after problems/errors are fixed and how can you do?


  1. Go to import monitor of target system (TX STMS -> Import Overview -> choose target system -> Import Monitor ), right click and delete the running entry regarding to client import which ends the tp process on OS level.



     2. As per note 70547 – CC-TOPIC: Client transport, continue the client import with following command as user <target_sid>adm:

     tp import <SId>KTnnn clientxxx <Target_SId> u8 pf=/usr/sap/trans/bin/TP_DOMAIN_SID.PFL


     xxx stands for target client


     Once it starts, you can see the following information in import log under directory /usr/sap/trans/tmp for already imported tables.

     3 ETW674Xstart import of “R3TRTABU/1CN/CPASAP00001” …

     4 ETW000 R3TR TABU /1CN/CPASAP00001     was already imported successfully.

     3 ETW677 “R3TRTABU/1CN/CPASAP00001” not imported in this step.


     After the completion of step 2, refresh import queue of target system to reflect the current status:



     As soon as the step 2 finishes, perform client import postprocessing steps in target client.
