how to set up transport directory


Currently our SAP landscape consists of 3 boxes, DEV, QA and PROD. We are on ECC 6.0 on RedHat with Oracle 10.2.04 as DB.

Currently the /usr/sap/trans directory is common for DEV and QA. But PROD has its own local /usr/sap/trans. Due to this setting we have to manually copy the Data and Cofiles to the PROD /usr/sap/trans from the DEV/QA trans directory and then do the import of transports.

To avoid this issue we would like to consolidate /usr/sap/trans and make it as a global directory for the landscape.


1. What are the steps to do this ?

2. Any impact due to this consolidation ?

3. What will happen to the current import queus in the landscape ?

4. Any precautions to be followed ?

Appreciate your help
