How to update R3TRANS


This is just like a kernel update. I suggest the following which will
download the file once from SAPSERV and use the same save file for all
systems in your landscape:
1. Create a save file on you PRD box called R3TRANS
2. FTP to SAPSERV4 and do a
'get R3TRANS (replace'
3. Use APYR3FIX using user ID and password of PRDOFR and your PRD server
name for 'FROMHOST':

In addition, I would perform the same steps for TP at the time you update
R3Trans (usually update together). Also, the same process applies for all
kernel objects and programs (including LIB_DBSL, SAPFTP, etc.).

Good luck,

Subject: How to update R3TRANS

Hello, gang:

I asked this question in October 2000 but didn't get the response that I
anticipated. Things got hairy around the holidays and now it is back in my

I need some help updating our version of R3TRANS. I know how to find the
latest version on SAPSERV (/general/R3server/patches/rel40B/OS400/V4R1M0);
however, I have no instructions on how to update it. I cannot use the
APYABFIX command because our SAPSERV connection is on our production box.

Usually for kernel upgrades, I just perform a 'get' to retrieve the files
and then go from there. In this case, though, I can find no instructions
on which directory the file needs to be in before I start or even how to do
it. I, of course, I want to update our DEV and QAS systems prior to
updating PRD but do they all need to be updated at the same time?

I would appreciate it if someone who has a process document for updates of
this nature would share it.

We are on V4R4, SAP version 4.0B.
