What are Transport CO files and Transport Data Files?

Hi Jenni

On all operating systems, a special file structure for transport data, logs, temporary data, and transport control data is required where SAP instance is running.

The file structure is operating system-dependent, but SAP has tried to keep these differences as small as possible.

Transport path needs a transport path directory, which is called /usr/sap/trans under UNIX. You can also use any other directory in the file system, but it must exist on every machine in your network where a SAP instance is running (UNIX: mounted, Windows: share). If this is not the case, you cannot install a transport system that runs automatically.

The transport directory must have the following subdirectories:

· datafiles

Contains the transport data

· cofiles

Contains information on change requests (different steps of a change request and their exit codes)

With the data and cofiles , you can easily trasport TR's between systems without having a route established between them.

Hope this helps.
