Hi it is just like applying support packs. Patches related
to tp and r3 trans are available in service market place
just download through downloadmanager to local machine and
ftp to the /usr/sap/trans/bin and got to spam in R3 level
and just apply the patches.
Please correct me if any mistake in the above answer.
tp & r3trans are located in the run
directory.usr/sap/sid/sys/exe/run.all the executables
reside in the run directory.run directory is nothing but
kernal directory.if u upgrade the kernal directory all the
executables will get upgraded.u can also upgrade only tp &
r3trans.some prerequisites are there that u need to perform
before u do this.
You can downloadn latest tp and R3trans versions
1. Download it
2. Uncar the Files
3. stop sap
4. stop oscol
5. copy and replace corresponding files in Run Directory.
6. Rstart sap
7. Check tp version
tp and r3trans can be upgraded with kernel upgrade. as
Renjith Remanan said we can also upgrade them separately.
as naresh said we can also do tp and r3trans upgrade with
out restarting the system only when tp and r3trans were not
used by sap system at that point of time.otherwise we cannot
rename that . i think i concluded all the answers.
