Transport failed with RC=12 error


Sometimes while transporting changes from Dev to Quality system or from Quality to Production system, the TR fails with RC 12 error. This is a critical error which does not depend on the contents of the TR. There may be many scenarios leading to this error, I have mentioned one of them in my earlier post, this post is about one more such cases where I encountered this error-

Root Cause Analysis-

In this case, there was table space issue in the quality system and hence while transporting the changes, incomplete objects were transported resulting in a dump in the quality system and TR failing with RC=12 error-

Below is the screenshot of the error that we got in the TR-

rc12 error 3

Below is the screen shot of the dump which we were getting in the quality system-

rc12 error2


We asked basis team to check the tablespace in the quality system. They extended the tablespace of the table mentioned in the error log/ short dump. The TR was then moved successfully.

Hope this helps..
