TMS: Administering Your R/3 Systems Transport domain Transport group Transport Directory Domain Controller RFC Delete Approve
TMS: Configuring Transport Routes Standard transport layer Consolidation routes Delivery routes To insert new systems into the configuration, use drag and drop To define transport routes, insert arrows and choose type of transport route Distribute and activate the new configuration
Summary: Setting up an R/3 Transport Landscape 1.Make the transport directory available. 2.Configure the transport domain controller and define the domain. 3.Configuration of the transport program (tp) is done automatically and must not be done at OS level. 4.In the TMS: - Include all remaining systems in the domain - Define the transport routes - Define QA approval procedure 5. Set the system change options according to the role of the R/3 System. 6.Create clients and set the client change options for the production system, development system, and so on.
