STMS problem in upgraded landscape
We now have an upgraded ECC 6.0 development and QA system in our landscape, and are needing to transport configuration and programming changes from the new development to the new QA.
We have set up the transport routes (with the SAP and ZDEV layers) and everything checks out OK. And the settings, tp parameters etc... seem to match the legacy 4.7 landscape.
Here is the situation...
When we Release a transport (from SE10), the file(s) are not being transferred automatically. Hard to explain, but when you go to STMS and double-click into the new QA queue and refresh, the transport appearts. But there is a little green zig-zag arrow icon on the left that says something like "Files still to be transferred".
If you click on this arrow, the message is XT278 Transport files for request &1 must still be transferred
Here is the message long text:
The import queue contains requests whose transport files do not exist in the current transport directory of the system &V2.
Background: There are multiple transport groups configured in your transport domain. This means that not all systems access the same transport directory. The transport files must be replicated among the different directories. If you have configured a transport route between systems that are in different groups, a check is made when updating the import queue to see if there are any requests whose transport files still have to be copied.
You cannot import requests whose transport files have not yet been copied.
To copy these transport files, choose Queue -> Adjust.
If you follow the menu Queue-->Adjust, something is triggered that transfers the files. It gives the screen to login to the new QA. And then we can do the little truck as usual. So we have a manual
workaround, but this normally was automatic in the old development system.
What did we do wrong or forget to do in the new DEV system?
This situation is coming for you as you might have configured your DEV and QAS as seperate transport groups in your transport domain. Because of seperate groups they have seperate transport directories and the files are thus not getting transferred automatically. And you are required to adjust the queue so as to replicate the files in to the transport directory of QAS.
