SAP Transport with No Shared Drive

Postby gmpm_ultra » Thu Apr 03, 2014 5:56 pm

Hi Basis Experts, Due to security policies, our DEV system is not connected to common NFS mount which is connected to PRD and QAS.
The option I have understood was to use 'rsync' to move from one directory (DEV) to another (QAS/PRD). Is this a right tool to sync the transport files?
Can you provide any better options to mitigate the risk?
Thanks

Hi,
if the systems are in same transport domain but in different transport groups then the transport files are moved between systems via RFC.

You do not need to fiddle with rsync ... but the domain has to be configured properly.

Thanks for the suggestion. Does it mean /usr/sap/trans file can be local instead of shared one? We have ensured the ports are opened. However there won’t be NFS mount from Production to DEV in our landscape.

Hello,

transport system does support local transport directories. In this case you will have no problem with NFS share nor with UID/GID access.

The only issue will be that the distribution of transports will be semi automatic. I.e. if the transport file is missing you have to download it with the "flash" icon in the menu.

How do we ensure to identify the issue with regard missing transports? This is a manual approach correct? Can a service push through RFC into QAS directory (OS level) without manual intervention?
Sorry few more questions. Thanks for your replies :-)

A friend of mine mentioned where she lives, the wind is so strong, it will blow you off. I asked her to put stones in her pocket.

Now, your problem is similar. You seem to have a quarantined QAS & PRD system. You want to move transports from DEV system. Is there a system landscape document? Are you or your manager or your customer following it? I find it strange in your situation.

Is your DEV system a Microsoft Windows System?

How were the earlier transports from DEV system to QAS and PRD system moved?

Technically, anything is possible. The problem appears to be your project or your requirement. Come clean with your requirement and you will get clean replies.

SAP do it automatically. It will mark the lines where the data file/cofile is missing.

It is not manual approach. It is a normal SAP solution.

a trick: schedule program RSTMSTIQ on your PROD system.
