TRANSPORT ROUTE PROBLEM

Dear All,

We have configured the TRANSPORT ROUTES has from sandbox --> Virtual System, & in DEVELOPMENT (DEV) --> Virtual Sytem, & the same QUALITY (QA) --> Virtual Sytem , & for PROD --> Virtual Sytem

 

Actually we are creating the request in Sandbox System . We are manually adding the request to DEV, QA, PROD to the transport quee manually.

But my part is there a way to configure the transport route in Sandbox. So that it automatically request goes to the quee.

 

Kindly help on this matter

 

 

 

Thanks

    Are you saying you want a four-level transport landscape, Sandbox->DEV->QA->PROD? You should be able to create that in STMS by creating two consolidation routes, SBX->DEV and DEV->QA, and then a delivery route QA->PROD.

     

    Does that help?

      Thanks Steve for the quick reply

      ya it helps somewat.

      actually my problem is  we have totally 5 servers ( 1 DEV , 2 QA , 2 PROD ) & we are creating the request in SANDBOX . So all the request should go from Sandbox.

      So i want to know how to configure the transport route path for this. & if any Kindly mention step by step . tat will be much mor e helpfull for us ..

       

       

       

      Thanks

        To be clear on your requirement, you are looking for a landscape that looks like this:

        SBX->DEV->QA1->PRD1
              |
              |-->QA2->PRD2

        That is, requests go from SBX to DEV, and from there to both QA systems at the same time, and then independently from each QA system to its corresponding PROD system. Is that right?

         

        To do that, you'd want a consolidation route from SBX to DEV, and then delivery routes from DEV to QA1 and DEV to QA2, and further delivery routes from each QA to is corresponding PRD.

         

        Step-by-step:

        • In transaction STMS, choose Overview->Transport Routes, and switch to change mode (Configuration->Display<->Change)

        • If you haven't done so already, create a transport layer (Edit->Transport layer->Create)

        • Create a consolidation route (Edit->Transport route->Create): Integration system = SBX, consolidation system = DEV

        • Create 4 delivery routes (Edit->Transport route->Create again): source = DEV, delivery = QA1; source = DEV, delivery = QA2; source = QA1, delivery = PRD1; source = QA2, delivery = PRD2

         

        Does that make sense? I confess, I haven't done this - I never set up a branching landscape - but I believe this should work. If not, I'll dig further...!

         

        Steve.

          Hi  Steve,

           

          i have configured as per the landscape mentioned by you . but from the front end , remaining what are the steps to be done, to get the transport route fully getting configured.

           

           

           

           

           

           

          Thanks

            All you should really need to do after that is make sure your local development classes (packages) are configured to use your transport layer. You will also need to make transport layer SAP work the same way, I think, for standard configuration change requests to follow the same route. Sorry - I forgot that step...

             

            As I said, though, I've not actually done this so I can't promise it works! Also have a look at Bhavik's suggestion above - that also looks like it should work.

             

            Do please let us know if either of these solutions work.

             

            Steve.

        Hi,

         

        totally 5 servers ( 1 DEV , 2 QA , 2 PROD )

         

        You can achieve this kind of STMS configuration by enabling Extended Transport Control feature of STMS. You can enable Extended Transport Control feature by specifying the CTC parameter to 1 in your TP_DOMAIN_<DOMAIN_SID>.PFL Profile.

         

        You can create two consolidation Route and One Delivery Route to achieve your requirement. After enabling that Extended Transport Control feature the Transport Route can be designed as followed:

         

        SND   ->> Consolidation Route pointing to -->> DEV  ->> Consolidation Route pointing to -->>  Transport Group(/ECQ/)--->> QA1 & QA2  -->> Delivery Route from QA1 & QA2 pointing to-->>  Transport Group (/PRD/)  -->>  PRD1 & PRD2 Systems

        Please understand the above mentioned Transport route carefully.

         

        In Transport Group properties You can specify the Target System and its corresponding client(s) into which you want to transport the changes. The corresponding Routes will be created automatically.

         

        1. Include the Systems in STMS ([TMS Domain|http://help.sap.com/SAPHELP_NW70/helpdata/EN/60/e560ce591b11d2b413006094b9ea64/frameset.htm]) by add/approve method in 000 Client.

        2. Open Graphical Editor in STMS.

        3. Drag the Systems to create required Transport Routes

        4. Assign Transport Layers to Consolidation Transport Route(s) for Non-Standard and Standard SAP Objects.

        5. Distribute the TMS Config. Change to the Systems in TMS Domain.

         

         

        You can refer the following BASIC Documents to get required technical configuration details for the same.

          when i create an transport route for delivery , its asking delivery source ( 1 & 2)  & delivery target System ( Transport Group (/PRD/) )

          for delivery source ( 1 & 2 ) , its accepting only 1 delivery source , 2nd delivery source ( its showing blank )its coming does not exists .
