8. On the System Overview –Domain_<SID> screen, click SAP System → Create → External System. Fill in QAS if you are going to have a three system configuration or PRD if you are going to have a two system configuration, or make up a <SID> if you are never really going to have another SAP system.

Fill in the rest of the information including the Path which is assumed to be \<current server>:usrsaptrans for NT or /usr/sap/trans for UNIX. Click Environment → Transport Routes.
