Including R/3 Systems in the Transport Domain


Once you have configured an R/3 System as the transport domain controller, you can include all the other systems in the transport domain.

You can do this in two steps:

  1. Apply for inclusion in the transport domain
  2. Confirm inclusion with the transport domain controller


To include an R/3 System in the transport domain, proceed as follows:

  1. Log on in client 000 in the R/3 System which you want to include in the transport domain.
  2. Call transaction STMS.
  3. If your systems have a common transport directory, TMS automatically proposes that you include this R/3 System in the transport domain when you call the transaction.

    The TMS: Include System in Transport Domain appears, displaying the name of the transport domain and the address data of the domain controller.

    If your R/3 System consists of several application servers, you can choose a server for the TMS.

  4. Save your entries.

The following actions are performed on your R/3 System:

The initial screen of transaction STMS indicates that the system is waiting for inclusion in the transport domain.

For safety reasons, the domain controller must confirm inclusion of the R/3 System.

To confirm inclusion of the system in the transport domain, proceed as follows:

  1. Log onto the R/3 System used as the domain controller.
  2. Call transaction STMS.
  3. Choose Overview ® Systems.
  4. This takes you to the system overview.

    The Status column shows that an R/3 System is waiting to be included in the transport domain.

  5. Position the cursor on this R/3 System and choose R/3 System ® Accept.
  6. Confirm the prompt and distribute the configuration.

This R/3 System now contains the necessary information about all the other R/3 Systems of the transport domain. The address data of the new R/3 System is also sent to all the other R/3 Systems.

To reject the inclusion of an R/3 System in the transport domain, choose R/3 System ® Delete in the system overview of the domain controller.


The configuration of the transport domain is now complete for this R/3 System.
