Locking/Unlocking TMS for an SAP System

In certain circumstances, you may want to lock an SAP System for TMS accesses. If you have to stop an SAP System for hardware maintenance, for example, communicate this to the other SAP Systems in the transport domain. This prevents unnecessary attempts to access an SAP System that cannot be reached.

 

Locked SAP Systems are not displayed in the import overview. Display and import functions are not available for SAP Systems that have been locked.

 

 

 

If an SAP System is locked for the TMS, all virtual SAP Systems that have this SAP System configured as a communications system are also locked.

 

Procedure

 

To lock an SAP System:

 

  1. Log onto the SAP System functioning as the transport domain controller.
  2. Enter Transaction STMS.
  3. Choose Overview ® Systems. The system overview appears.
  4. Position the cursor on the SAP System you want to lock.
  5. Choose SAP System ® Lock.
  6. Confirm the prompt and distribute the configuration.
