What is your LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable? ( echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH )

Problem solved

I've used 64-bit binary for TDGSS, cliv2, tdicu with 32-binary for bteq (no 64 for bteq exist).

Using 32-bit for all binaries fixed the issue.

Best regards

Had the same problem. If you look at strace for bteq it is trying to find the fileĀ /usr/teragss/linux-i386/client/etc/tdgssconfig.bin.
I had the fileĀ /usr/teragss/linux-i386/client/etc/tdgssconfig.bin.prebuilt file so I just renamed it and everything worked fine.

thanks a ton. this worked.
I put the file in /usr/teragss/linux-x8664/client/etc/tdgssconfig.bin and it worked. :)

What would be the corresponding location on a WS2008 R2 server?
