Serial profile has to be the same for a material maintain in different plants

I just want to clarify the following....


If I maintain a serial number profile for a material in plant A as value ZXXX, does it means whenI also must use the same serial profile ZXXX when I maintain the same material to plant B? If I don't maintain the same serial number profile for the material in the two plants, will the stock transfer posting become a problem?

The reason I am asking this is because, the following statement from SAP help portal:

If you use different profiles for a material, the plants must be logistically independent of one another; because it is only possible to transfer stocks from one plant to another if the profiles are the same at both.

Yes, you will face error message M7174 during transfer posting. The same is explained in this OSS note  53229 - Different serial number profile for each plant
