    Could you check whether following parameter is entered in the TP_DOMAIN_SID.PFL file located at /usr/sap/trans/bin


    SAPEVTPATH  = /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/exe/run/sapevt ( sapevt.exe)


    If not add the same and try again. It should work.

    Any network drive involved ? if so,  could be due to  lack of permissions for I/O operations on files

    over a network path. Check if users SAPService<SID> and/or <SID>adm are affected.


    try call transaction AL11 and try to list the contents for DIR_TRANS


    See SAP  note 117395 and its related sub-notes.
