This is my first post on this forum. I have downloaded the teradata TTU 14.10 for windows. After having extracted the zip file i want to install the same. As per the instructions given here on the site it says i need to run the setup.exe to install it. But i dont find one single setup.exe which does this job,instead i find setup.exe in each and every folder such as BTEQ,FASTEXPORT,FASTLOAD. Do i need to install everything seperately. At the sametime there are 3 more exes such as TTU_Base.exe,TTU_DBM.exe and TTUListProducts.exe. Is there any order in which they need to be installed.Kindly let me know on this.
TTU_Base.exe is the program which can be used for all of the fastload/bteq/fastexport etc. You will be prompted with product to choose in a menu.
Note that when you install with TTU_Base.exe, you only will have one entry in add/remove program.
If you want to install individual packages separately then you can brawse and install.
Thanks a lot for the information. There is one more thing that i wanted to know.
When i install TTU_Base.exe, it will be installed on the windows OS.On the other hand the teradata express downloaded runs on SUSE linux and the whole thing is invoked using VMware Player. Now my question here is how will the TTU utilities running on windows interact with the database that is on SUSE linux. Your response is much appreciated.
TTU_Base.exe is the main setup file that you need to run and then you will choose the products you want to install.
TTU_DBM.exe will install the database administration utilties. if you need admin utilities as well then install these as well.
Thanks for the response. But my question is , my teradata database is invoked using VMware player and my mload utility is installed on windows 7. In such a situation how can i load a file using mload utility. I am sorry if my question looks insensible as i am totally new to teradata.
oops, I am sorry for the misunderstanding. Well, it is very simple. You need to add ODBC connection to connect the VM.
Perform the following steps and you can access the Teradata installed on VM.
Now in SQL Assistant on the top left click on the Connect button, and from machine data source tab, select your ODBC name you just added.
Click Ok, and you will get connected to the Teradata on VM. Now you can submit queries!
Wow Wow !!! Thanks a ton Saeed it is working now. I was totally confused as to how to go about.
Well anyways my name is suresh rangadhamaiah and an australian resident. My email id is firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great time!!
Installation of SQLAssistant on Win 8 64x fails with message "Error 1606. Could not access network location 0\Teradata\SQL Assistant".
The problem is potentially a result of an inconsistent/incorrect environmental variable (%AppData%).
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\
Hope this will work for you!
