How to configure Transport Domain Controller

To configure a system as the transport domain controller (and thereby configure a new transport domain):


  1. Log on in client 000 using super user or user with Transport Domain Adminitration authorization in the SAP System that you want to configure as the transport domain controller.
  2. Enter Transaction STMS. The dialog box TMS: Configure Transport Domain appears. (This dialog box only appears if you have not yet configured a transport domain.)
  3. If you have already configured TMS then goto Utilities --> Delete TMS Configuration
  4. Enter the name and a short description of the transport domain.
  5. The name of the transport domain may not contain blank characters. You cannot change the name of the transport domain afterwards without reconfiguring the domain controller and thereby the entire transport domain.
  6. If your SAP System consists of multiple application servers, you can choose one server for the TMS.
  7. Save your entries. The following actions are performed automatically in your SAP System:
  • The user TMSADM is created.
  • The RFC destinations required for the TMS are generated.
  • The TMS configuration is stored in the transport directory.
  • The transport profile for the transport control program tp is generated.
  • The SAP System is configured as a single system.

First system in Transport Domain is always the Transport Domain Controller. However you can still
change once you add any more systems. This should be decided based on the availibility and security
of the system.
