R3trans Calls

R3trans is called with the following command:

  • UNIX

fork()

  • IBM eServer iSeries

spawn()

  • Windows

CreateProcess()

The global parameter file determines which R3trans is used for each SAP System. If the parameter r3transpath is incorrectly specified, no exports or imports can be performed. The implemented default value r3transpath = R3trans or for Windows r3transpath = R3trans.exe is adequate.

The complete path must be specified for IBM eServer iSeries. It is a symbolic link pointing to the program R3transdb4 in the SAP kernel library, for example, R346COPT, which must be installed locally. The value must be /usr/sap/$(SYSTEM)/SYS/exe/run/R3trans.
