After completing the installation of the SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.40 SP 8 – Developer Edition, I found out that – unlike the CAL edition – this system does not come with a fully configured TMS, or rather that you need to perform some additional steps to get the TMS working.

  1. Either edit your /etc/hosts file or modify your DNS information: Assuming that your actual hostname is mysapnpl, ensure that the system is also reachable under the hostname mysapnplci (CI for Central Instance) since that is the host name that is generated into the RFC destinations TMSADM@NPL.DOMAIN_NPL and TMSSUP@NPL.DOMAIN_NPL. Without that, you will get communication errors when executing various TMS functions. To verify that this has worked correctly, start transaction STMS, select Overview > Systems, select the line containing NPL and execute SAP System > Check > Connection Test (F5)
  2. Now check the tp profile using STMS, select Overview > Systems, select the line containing NPL and execute SAP System > Check > Transport Tool and Transport Tool. This should check out OK with a green status. In my case, the tp profile was damaged and unusable, so I had to re-create it using STMS, select Overview > Systems, then Extras > Distribute and Activate TMS Configuration, …to All Systems…
