SAP system that is chosen as the domain controller is low, and only increases for a short period when the TMS configuration is changed.
Configuration Of Domain Controller:
To activate the TMS on an SAP system, run transaction STMS inclient 000 with user authorization S_CTS_ADMIN. If the SAP system isalready assigned to a transport domain, the TMS initial screen shows the
system’s status, either as a domain controller, or as a SAP system within a
domain. If the SAP system is not yet assigned to a transport domain, thesystem tries to locate an existing transport domain within the currenttransport group by reading the file DOMAIN.CFG in the directory bin of thecommon transport directory. If no transport domain exists, a new transportdomain is created, and the current SAP system is assigned as the transportdomain controller.When a transport domain controller is first created, the TMS generates:
A transport domain and a transport group.
The RFC destinations required for the TMS.
File DOMAIN.CFG in directory bin. The name of the transport domain may not contain blanks and may notbe changed afterwards without reconfiguring the domain controller. By default, a transport domain will have the name DOMAIN_, where is thesystem ID of the domain controller. The name of the transport domaincannot be changed afterwards. After configuring domain controller wehave set the transport routes.Note: If the domain is already configured then we can execute atransaction code DICO to delete the existing TMS configuration. It can beexecuted from the STMS and also the RFC connections.
Creating Virtual Systems:
It is a standard practice in the industry to create virtual systems asthe real systems could not be available during the initial configuration (DEVserver is procured during implementation, QAS will be procured after 3 to 4months from kickoff date and the PRD is procured before 2 months of Go-Live).
Virtual Machines/ Systems can be replaced by real systems and theconfiguration now points to the real system. To configure the virtual systemwe have to follow the below steps
