How to reset the SAP transport buffer after abnormal patch termination

Find out how resetting a transport buffer can help fix an error that occured during the installation of an SAPGUI patch. Learn how to avoid an operating system shutdown when receiving a path error during a SAPGUI patch install.

During the installation of a patch, the operating system abnormally shut down. When I restarted, I received the...

following error:

Error in phase: IMPORT_PROPER
Reason for error: TP_BUFFER_INCONSISTENCY
Return code: 0008
Error message: Pkgs. in queue don't exist in the TP buffer

When I applied the same patch in Quality, it worked in 15 minutes. What is causing the operating system to shut down?

There seems to be a problem in the transport buffer. You need to reset the buffer by following these steps:

  • In transaction SE37, use the function module OCS_RESET_QUEUE > Single Test with the parameters "IV_TOOL&H3DSAINT" and "IV_FORCE&H3DX"
  • Delete all the files from "usrsaptranstmp."
  • Make sure that there is no TP or R3trans process running in the system at the operating system level. If any process exists, kill it.

Then restart the import.
