Problem : Transport control program tp ended with error code 0208. Error shows that transport profile is missing.
Action Steps :
- Check whether transport profile which is located in Transport Domain exists or not. The link should be like this : //<domain_host>/sapmnt/trans/bin/TP_DOMAIN_<SID>.PFL .
- Check the TMS configuration like RFC Destination configuration, transport domain setting.
- Check network connection between localhost and transport domain host.
- Try to run tp command from OS level. ex : tp showbuffer <SID> pf=<transport_profile>
Apparently, that those check action have nothing wrong. They all are exist and working fine. But still the STMS failed to run any tp programs.
Solution: Check the user SAPservice<SID> in the Windows User Management or in the Domain Controller. It might be locked or expired. In my case, I found that this service user’s password is expired. This makes sense that SAP application cannot call tp program. It use SAPservice<SID> user to run tp program in Operating System.
