Transports between different databases or operating systems are not a problem either. When you transport between different SAP releases, this usually does not present any technical problems due to the upward and downward compatibility ofR3trans , but logical inconsistencies can occur in such transports.
Use unconditional modes very carefully. Transport according to the rules of the Transport Organizer and Transport Management System.
